Claim of US Patent No. 9,455,819

1. A method of sending feedback information, comprising:
determining, by a user equipment, a dedicated feedback timing; and
sending, by the user equipment, feedback information, corresponding to downlink data, on a primary carrier according to the
determined dedicated feedback timing,

wherein the user equipment is a user equipment which is configured with carrier aggregation with different Time Division Duplex
(TDD) uplink-downlink configurations, and wherein the dedicated feedback timing is one of feedback timings supported by a
Release 8 Long Term Evolution (Rel-8 LTE) TDD system;

wherein before the user equipment sends the feedback information, the method further comprises a step of:
determining the number of bits of the feedback information by means of Formula 2 of:

wherein N is the number of bits of the feedback information, MXDL is the number of downlink subframes among M subframes on a carrier X, determined according to the dedicated feedback timing,
for which the feedback information needs to be transmitted in a same uplink subframe, C is the number of aggregated carriers,
and if a single-codeword transmission mode is configured for downlink or spatial bundling of the feedback information is configured
on the carrier X, then TBX=1, otherwise TBX=2.
