TECHNICAL FIELD
The present invention relates to a terminal device, a base station device, a communication method, an integrated circuit, and a wireless communication system.
Priority is claimed on Japanese Patent Application No. 2012-056895, filed Mar. 14, 2012, the content of which is incorporated herein by reference.
BACKGROUND ART
In wireless communication systems such as systems based on LTE (Long Term Evolution) and LTE-A (LTE-Advanced), which are developed by 3GPP (Third Generation Partnership Project), and WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access), which is developed by IEEE (The Institute of Electrical and Electronics engineers), a base station and a terminal each include one or a plurality of transmit/receive antennas, and utilize, for example, MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) technology to achieve high-speed data transmission.
In the wireless communication systems, the support of MU-MIMO (Multiple User MIMO) in which a plurality of terminals perform spatial multiplexing using the same frequency and time resources is being examined. The support of a CoMP (Cooperative Multipoint) transmission scheme in which a plurality of base stations cooperate with one another to perform interference coordination is also being examined. For example, a wireless communication system designed to use heterogeneous network deployment (HetNet) implemented by a wide-coverage macro base station, an RRH (Remote Radio Head) with coverage smaller than the macro base station, and so on is being examined.
In the above-described wireless communication systems, interference occurs if uplink signals (uplink data or uplink control information) transmitted from a plurality of terminals have the same characteristics. Interference also occurs if uplink reference signals transmitted from a plurality of terminals have the same characteristics. To mitigate or eliminate interference between demodulation reference signals (also referred to as DMRSs) transmitted from a plurality of terminals, for example, a method for orthogonalizing the demodulation reference signals has been proposed (NPL 1).

FIG. 1 is a schematic block diagram illustrating a configuration of a base station according to an embodiment of the present invention. The base station illustrated in FIG. 1 is a primary base station or a secondary base station. The base station includes a data control unit 101, a transmit data modulation unit 102, a radio unit 103, a scheduling unit 104, a channel estimation unit 105, a received data demodulation unit 106, a data extraction unit 107, a higher layer 108, and an antenna 109. The radio unit 103, the scheduling unit 104, the channel estimation unit 105, the received data demodulation unit 106, the data extraction unit 107, the higher layer 108, and the antenna 109 constitute a receiving section. The data control unit 101, the transmit data modulation unit 102, the radio unit 103, the scheduling unit 104, the higher layer 108, and the antenna 109 constitute a transmitting section. Here, each of the components constituting the base station is also referred to as a unit.
The data control unit 101 receives transport channels from the scheduling unit 104. The data control unit 101 maps the transport channels and signals generated in the physical layer to physical channels on the basis of scheduling information input from the scheduling unit 104. The mapped pieces of data are output to the transmit data modulation unit 102.
The transmit data modulation unit 102 modulates/codes transmit data. The transmit data modulation unit 102 performs signal processing operations, such as modulation/coding, serial/parallel conversion of input signals, IFFT (Inverse Fast Fourier Transform) processing, and CP (Cyclic Prefix) insertion, on the data input from the data control unit 101 on the basis of the scheduling information supplied from the scheduling unit 104 and so on to generate transmit data, and outputs the transmit data to the radio unit 103.
The radio unit 103 generates a radio signal by up-converting the transmit data input from the transmit data modulation unit 102 to a radio frequency signal, and transmits the radio signal to a terminal via the antenna 109. In addition, the radio unit 103 receives a radio signal received from the terminal via the antenna 109, down-converts the radio signal to a baseband signal, and outputs the received data to the channel estimation unit 105 and the received data demodulation unit 106.
The scheduling unit 104 performs operations such as mapping between logical channels and transport channels and downlink and uplink scheduling. Since the scheduling unit 104 controls the physical-layer processors in an integrated manner, an interface exists between the scheduling unit 104 and the respective units, namely, the antenna 109, the radio unit 103, the channel estimation unit 105, the received data demodulation unit 106, the data control unit 101, the transmit data modulation unit 102, and the data extraction unit 107.
In the downlink scheduling, the scheduling unit 104 controls transmission on transport channels and physical channels and generates scheduling information on the basis of uplink control information received from the terminal, scheduling information input from the higher layer 108, and so on. The scheduling information used for the downlink scheduling is output to the data control unit 101.
In the uplink scheduling, the scheduling unit 104 generates scheduling information on the basis of an uplink channel state output from the channel estimation unit 105, the scheduling information input from the higher layer 108, and so on. The scheduling information used for the uplink scheduling is output to the data control unit 101.
In addition, the scheduling unit 104 maps downlink logical channels input from the higher layer 108 to transport channels, and outputs the transport channels to the data control unit 101. The scheduling unit 104 further maps uplink transport channels and control data input from the data extraction unit 107 to uplink logical channels after processing the uplink transport channels and the control data, if necessary, and outputs the uplink logical channels to the higher layer 108.
The channel estimation unit 105 estimates an uplink channel state from uplink reference signals (e.g., demodulation reference signals) for the demodulation of uplink data, and outputs the uplink channel state to the received data demodulation unit 106. The channel estimation unit 105 further estimates an uplink channel state from uplink reference signals (e.g., sounding reference signals) for uplink scheduling, and outputs the uplink channel state to the scheduling unit 104.
The received data demodulation unit 106 demodulates received data. The received data demodulation unit 106 performs a demodulation process on modulated data input from the radio unit 103 by preforming signal processing operations, such as a DFT transform, subcarrier mapping, and an IFFT transform, on the basis of the estimated uplink channel state input from the channel estimation unit 105, and outputs the received data to the data extraction unit 107.
The data extraction unit 107 checks the received data input from the received data demodulation unit 106 for correctness, and outputs the check result (e.g., ACK or NACK) to the scheduling unit 104. In addition, the data extraction unit 107 separates the data input from the received data demodulation unit 106 into transport channels and physical layer control data, and outputs the transport channels and the physical layer control data to the scheduling unit 104.
The higher layer 108 performs the processing of the radio resource control (RRC) layer and the processing of the MAC (Media Access Control) layer. Since the higher layer 108 controls the lower-layer processors in an integrated manner, an interface exists between the higher layer 108 and the respective units, namely, the scheduling unit 104, the antenna 109, the radio unit 103, the channel estimation unit 105, the received data demodulation unit 106, the data control unit 101, the transmit data modulation unit 102, and the data extraction unit 107.

The data control unit 201, the transmit data modulation unit 202, the radio unit 203, the scheduling unit 204, the higher layer 208, and the antenna 209 constitute a transmitting section. The radio unit 203, the scheduling unit 204, the channel estimation unit 205, the received data demodulation unit 206, the data extraction unit 207, the higher layer 208, and the antenna 209 constitute a receiving section.

The scheduling unit 104 performs operations such as mapping between logical channels and transport channels and downlink and uplink scheduling. Since the scheduling unit 204 controls the physical-layer processors in an integrated manner, an interface exists between the scheduling unit 204 and the respective units, namely, the antenna 209, the data control unit 201, the transmit data modulation unit 202, the channel estimation unit 205, the received data demodulation unit 206, the data extraction unit 207, and the radio unit 203.

The scheduling information is output to the data control unit 201.
In addition, the scheduling unit 204 maps uplink logical channels input from the higher layer 208 to transport channels, and outputs the transport channels to the data control unit 201. The scheduling unit 204 also outputs channel state information input from the channel estimation unit 205 and a result of checking CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check) parity bits (also referred to simply as the CRC) which is input from the data extraction unit 207 to the data control unit 201.
In addition, the scheduling unit 204 determines parameters related to uplink signals, and generates uplink signals using the determined parameters. The scheduling unit 204 further determines parameters related to reference signals, and generates reference signals using the determined parameters.

FIG. 3 is a schematic diagram illustrating an example of communication according to the embodiment of the present invention. In FIG. 3, a terminal 303 communicates with a primary base station 301 and/or a secondary base station 302. In addition, a terminal 304 communicates with the primary base station 301 and/or the secondary base station 302.
In FIG. 3, when transmitting an uplink signal to a base station, a terminal transmits the uplink signal with which the demodulation reference signal (DMRS), which is a signal known between the base station and the terminal, is multiplexed. The uplink signal includes uplink data (uplink shared channel (UL-SCH) or an uplink transport block). In addition, the uplink signal includes uplink control information (UCI). Here, the UL-SCH is a transport channel.
For example, the uplink data is mapped to a physical uplink shared channel (PUSCH). The uplink control information is mapped to the PUSCH or a physical uplink control channel (PUCCH). That is, in a wireless communication system, the demodulation reference signal associated with transmission of the PUSCH (transmission on the PUSCH) is supported. In the wireless communication system, furthermore, the demodulation reference signals associated with transmission of the PUCCH (transmission on the PUCCH) is supported.
In the following, the demodulation reference signal associated with transmission of the PUSCH is also represented as a first reference signal. The demodulation reference signal associated with transmission of the PUCCH is also represented as a second reference signal. The first reference signal and the second reference signal are also represented as reference signals.
That is, the first reference signal is used for demodulation of the PUSCH. For example, the first reference signal is transmitted on resource blocks (also referred to as physical resource blocks, physical resources, or resources) to which the corresponding PUSCH is mapped. The second reference signal is used for demodulation of the PUCCH. For example, the second reference signal is transmitted on resource blocks to which the corresponding PUCCH is mapped.
Specifically, the terminal 303 multiplexes the reference signals with the uplink signal that is transmitted to the primary base station 301, and transmits the uplink signal through an uplink 305. In addition, the terminal 303 multiplexes the reference signals with the uplink signal that is transmitted to the secondary base station 302, and transmits the uplink signal through an uplink 306. The terminal 304 multiplexes the reference signals with the uplink signal that is transmitted to the primary base station 301, and transmits the uplink signal through an uplink 307. In addition, the terminal 304 multiplexes the reference signals with the uplink signal that is transmitted to the secondary base station 302, and transmits the uplink signal through an uplink 308.
If the uplink signal transmitted from the terminal 303 and the uplink signal transmitted from the terminal 304 have the same characteristics, interference occurs. Interference also occurs if the reference signal transmitted from the terminal 303 and the reference signal transmitted from the terminal 304 have the same characteristics. For example, if interference occurs in reference signals transmitted from a plurality of terminals, the accuracy with which a channel state used for demodulation of uplink signals will be significantly reduced.
To address this, it is desirable to orthogonalize the reference signal transmitted from the terminal 303 and the reference signal transmitted from the terminal 304. In addition, it is desirable to orthogonalize the uplink signal transmitted from the terminal 303 and the uplink signal transmitted from the terminal 304. In addition, it is desirable to randomize interference between the reference signal transmitted from the terminal 303 and the reference signal transmitted from the terminal 304. In addition, it is desirable to randomize interference between the uplink signal transmitted from the terminal 303 and the uplink signal transmitted from the terminal 304.
In FIG. 3, different cell identities (also referred to as Cell IDs) (also referred to as Different cell IDs) may be configured for the primary base station 301 and the secondary base station 302. The same cell identity (also referred to as the Shared cell ID or Same cell ID) may be configured for all or some of the primary base station 301 and the secondary base station 302. A cell identity is also referred to as a physical layer cell identity (a physical layer cell identifier).
In FIG. 3, furthermore, an aggregation of a plurality of serving cells (also referred to simply as cells) is supported (referred to as a carrier aggregation or a cell aggregation) in the downlink and the uplink. For example, a transmission bandwidth of up to 110 resource blocks in each of the serving cells can be used. In the carrier aggregation, one of the serving cells is defined as a primary cell (Pcell). In the carrier aggregation, furthermore, the serving cells other than the primary cell are defined as secondary cells (Scells).
In the downlink, a carrier corresponding to the serving cell is defined as a downlink component carrier (DLCC). In the downlink, furthermore, a carrier corresponding to the primary cell is defined as a downlink primary component carrier (DLPCC). In the downlink, furthermore, a carrier corresponding to a secondary cell is defined as a downlink secondary component carrier (DLSCC).
In the uplink, a carrier corresponding to the serving cell is defined as an uplink component carrier (ULCC). In the uplink, furthermore, a carrier corresponding to the primary cell is defined as an uplink primary component carrier (ULPCC). In the uplink, furthermore, a carrier corresponding to a secondary cell is defined as an uplink secondary component carrier (ULSCC).
That is, in the carrier aggregation, a plurality of component carriers are aggregated to support a wide transmission bandwidth. Here, for example, the primary base station 301 may also be regarded as the primary cell, and the secondary base station 302 may also be regarded as a secondary cell (the base station may perform configuration in the terminal) (also referred to as HetNet deployment with a carrier aggregation).
FIG. 4 is a diagram illustrating an example of a downlink signal. In FIG. 4, physical downlink shared channel (PDSCH) resource regions to which downlink data (downlink shared channel (DL-SCH) or downlink transport blocks) is mapped are illustrated. The DL-SCH is a transport channel.
A physical downlink control channel (PDCCH; Physical Downlink Control Channel) resource region to which downlink control information (DCI; Downlink Control Information) is mapped is also illustrated. In addition, an enhanced physical downlink control channel (Enhanced-PDCCH; E-PDCCH) resource region to which downlink control information is mapped is illustrated.
FIG. 4 also depicts two resource blocks in one subframe. For example, one resource block is composed of 12 subcarriers in the frequency domain and 7 OFDM symbols in the time domain.
In a subframe, each of 7 OFDM symbols in the time domain is also referred to as a slot. In addition, in each slot, a resource defined by one OFDM symbol and one subcarrier is also referred to as a resource element. In a subframe, furthermore, two continuous resource blocks are referred to as a resource block pair.
As illustrated in FIG. 4, for example, the PDCCH is mapped to the first through third OFDM symbols in a downlink resource region. The PDSCH and the PDCCH are time-division multiplexed.
In addition, the E-PDCCH is mapped to the fourth through twelfth OFDM symbols in the downlink resource region. That is, for example, the E-PDCCH is mapped to the first slot and the second slot. That is, the E-PDCCH is mapped to one resource block pair. In addition, the PDSCH and the E-PDCCH are not subjected to time division multiplexing, space division multiplexing, or code division multiplexing. The PDSCH and the E-PDCCH are subjected to frequency division multiplexing.
It is noted here that the base station can signal information regarding the OFDM symbols used for PDCCH (PDCCH transmission) in a given subframe to the terminal using a PCFICH (Physical Control Format Indicator Channel). For example, as illustrated in FIG. 4, the base station can signal the use of three OFDM symbols for PDCCH transmission to the terminal.
In addition, the base station can configure the E-PDCCH resource region to the terminal. For example, the base station can configure the E-PDCCH resource region (resource block pair) to the terminal by using a dedicated signal. For example, the base station can configure a resource region that may possibly be used for E-PDCCH (E-PDCCH transmission) (Potential E-PDCCH resource region) to the terminal by using the dedicated signal.
In addition, the PDCCH is transmitted using the same transmit antenna port as that used for the transmission of a cell-specific reference signal. The cell-specific reference signal is also referred to as a common reference signal. That is, the cell-specific reference signal is mapped to resource elements in all the resource blocks.
In addition, the E-PDCCH is transmitted using the same transmit antenna port as that used for the transmission of a terminal-specific (user-equipment-specific; UE-specific) reference signal. That is, the UE-specific reference signal is mapped to resource elements in resource blocks assigned for the transmission of E-PDCCH (or, instead, in resource blocks for the transmission of downlink control information that uses the E-PDCCH). The UE-specific reference signal may be shared by a plurality of terminals.
In the following, the PDCCH is also represented as a first PDCCH. In addition, the E-PDCCH is represented as a second PDCCH.
The PDCCH and the E-PDCCH are used to signal (specify) downlink control information to the terminal. A plurality of formats are defined for downlink control information that is transmitted on the PDCCH and the E-PDCCH. The formats of the downlink control information are also referred to as DCI formats.
For example, DCI format 1 and DCI format 1A, which are used for the scheduling of one PDSCH (transmission of one PDSCH codeword or one downlink transport block) in one cell, are defined as downlink DCI formats. In addition, DCI format 2, which is used for the scheduling of one PDSCH (transmission of up to two PDSCH codewords or up to two downlink transport blocks) in one cell, is defined as a downlink DCI format.
For example, the downlink DCI format includes downlink control information such as information regarding PDSCH resource allocation and information regarding MCS (Modulation and Coding scheme). The downlink DCI format may include information regarding the base sequence index (also referred to as the base sequence identity). The downlink DCI format may include information regarding the base sequence index associated with PUCCH (also referred to as the base sequence identity associated with PUCCH). In the following, the DCI format used for scheduling of the PDSCH is also represented as a downlink assignment.
In addition, for example, DCI format 0, which is used for the scheduling of one PUSCH (transmission of one PUSCH codeword or one uplink transport block) in one cell, is defined as an uplink DCI format. In addition, DCI format 4, which is used for the scheduling of one PUSCH (transmission of up to two PUSCH codewords or up to two uplink transport blocks) in one cell, is defined as an uplink DCI format. That is, the DCI format 4 is used for scheduling of the PUSCH transmission (transmission mode) that uses a plurality of antenna ports.
For example, the uplink DCI format includes downlink control information such as information regarding PUSCH resource allocation and information regarding MCS (Modulation and Coding scheme). The uplink DCI format may include information regarding the base sequence index. In the following, the DCI format used for scheduling of the PUSCH is also represented as an uplink grant.
In FIG. 4, the terminal monitors a set of PDCCH candidates. Here, a PDCCH candidate represents a candidate for which the PDCCH may possibly be allocated and transmitted by the base station. A PDCCH candidate is composed of one or a plurality of control channel elements (CCEs). The term “monitor” means that the terminal attempts to decode each PDCCH in the set of PDCCH candidates in accordance with all the DCI formats to be monitored.
Similarly, the terminal monitors a set of E-PDCCH candidates. Here, an E-PDCCH candidate represents a candidate for which the E-PDCCH may possibly be allocated and transmitted by the base station. An E-PDCCH candidate is composed of one or a plurality of control channel elements (CCEs). The term “monitor” means that the terminal attempts to decode each E-PDCCH in the set of E-PDCCH candidates in accordance with all the DCI formats to be monitored.
The set of PDCCH candidates and/or set of E-PDCCH candidates that the terminal monitors are also referred to as a search space. That is, the search space is a set of resources that may possibly be used by the base station for PDCCH transmission and/or E-PDCCH transmission. In this embodiment, PDCCH candidates and E-PDCCH candidates have been separately described for ease of description. However, E-PDCCH candidates may be described as PDCCH candidates.
That is, a common search space (CSS) and/or a user-equipment-specific search space (USS; UE-Specific Search Space, terminal-specific (terminal-unique) search space) are configured (defined or set) in the PDCCH resource region. In addition, the CSS and/or the USS are configured (defined or set) in the E-PDCCH resource region.
The terminal monitors the PDCCH in the CSS and/or the USS in the PDCCH resource region, and detects a PDCCH addressed to the terminal. In addition, the terminal monitors the E-PDCCH in the CSS and/or the USS in the E-PDCCH resource region, and detects an E-PDCCH addressed to the terminal.
The CSS is used for the transmission of downlink control information to a plurality of terminals. That is, the CSS is defined by a resource common to a plurality of terminals. For example, the CSS is composed of CCEs having numbers that are predetermined between the base station and the terminal. For example, the CSS is composed of CCEs having indices 0 to 15. The CSS may be used for the transmission of downlink control information to a specific terminal. That is, the base station transmits, in the CSS, a DCI format intended for a plurality of terminals and/or a DCI format intended for a specific terminal.
The USS is used for the transmission of downlink control information to a specific terminal. That is, the USS is defined by a resource dedicated to a certain terminal. That is, the USS is defined independently for each terminal. For example, the USS is composed of CCEs having numbers that are determined on the basis of a radio network temporary identifier (RNTI; Radio Network Temporary Identifier) assigned by the base station, a slot number in a radio frame, an aggregation level, or the like. Here, RNTIs include a C-RNTI (Cell RNTI) and a Temporary C-RNTI. That is, the base station transmits, in the USS, a DCI format intended for a specific terminal.
Here, an RNTI assigned to the terminal by the base station is used for the transmission of downlink control information (transmission on the PDCCH or transmission on the E-PDCCH). Specifically, CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check parity bits (also referred to simply as the CRC), which are generated on the basis of downlink control information (or, instead, DCI format), are attached to the downlink control information, and, after attachment, the CRC parity bits are scrambled by the RNTI.
The terminal attempts to decode the downlink control information with the CRC parity bits scrambled by the RNTI, and detects a PDCCH (or E-PDCCH) in which the CRC is successful as a PDCCH (or E-PDCCH) addressed to the terminal (also referred to as blind decoding). Here, RNTIs include the C-RNTI and the Temporary C-RNTI. That is, the terminal decodes the PDCCH (or E-PDCCH) with the CRC scrambled by the C-RNTI. In addition, the terminal decodes the PDCCH (or E-PDCCH) with the CRC scrambled by the Temporary C-RNTI.
The C-RNTI is a unique identifier used to identify RRC (Radio Resource Control) connection and scheduling. For example, the C-RNTI is used for dynamically scheduled unicast transmission.
The Temporary C-RNTI is an identifier used for a random access procedure. The base station transmits the Temporary C-RNTI by including the Temporary C-RNTI in a random access response. For example, the Temporary C-RNTI is used in the random access procedure to identify a terminal that is currently performing the random access procedure. In addition, the Temporary C-RNTI is used for a retransmission of message 3 in the random access procedure. That is, in order for the terminal to retransmit message 3, the base station transmits downlink control information on the PDCCH (or the E-PDCCH) with the CRC scrambled by the Temporary C-RNTI. That is, the terminal changes the interpretation of the downlink control information on the basis of the type of RNTI by which the CRC has been scrambled.
For example, the terminal executes the random access procedure to take synchronization with the base station in the time domain. In addition, the terminal executes the random access procedure for initial connection establishment. In addition, the terminal executes the random access procedure to make a handover. In addition, the terminal executes the random access procedure for connection re-establishment (connection re-establishment). In addition, the terminal executes a random access procedure to make a request for UL-SCH resources.
When a PDSCH resource is scheduled using downlink control information transmitted on the PDCCH (or E-PDCCH), the terminal receives downlink data on the scheduled PDSCH. When a PUSCH resource is scheduled using downlink control information transmitted on the PDCCH (or E-PDCCH), the terminal transmits uplink data and/or uplink control information on the scheduled PUSCH. As described above, the terminal attempts to decode the downlink control information with the CRC parity bits scrambled by the RNTI, and detects a PDCCH (or E-PDCCH) in which the CRC is successful as a PDCCH (or E-PDCCH) addressed to the terminal. Here, RNTIs include the C-RNTI and the Temporary C-RNTI. Here, the first reference signal is multiplexed with the uplink data and/or the uplink control information transmitted on the PUSCH.
In addition, the terminal transmits the uplink control information on the PUCCH. For example, the terminal transmits information indicating ACK/NACK for downlink data (also referred to as ACK/NACK in HARQ; Hybrid Automatic Repeat Request) on the PUCCH. Here, the terminal transmits the uplink control information using the PUCCH resource corresponding to the number of the first CCE (also referred to as the lowest CCE index used for comprising the PDCCH) which has been used for PDCCH (or E-PDCCH) transmission (used for the transmission of the downlink assignment). Here, the second reference signal is multiplexed in the transmission of the uplink control information transmitted on the PUCCH.
In addition, the base station and the terminal transmit and receive a signal in a higher layer. For example, the base station and the terminal transmit and receive a radio resource control signal (also referred to as RRC signaling; Radio Resource Control signal, RRC message; Radio Resource Control message, or RRC information; Radio Resource Control information) in the RRC layer (Layer 3). Here, dedicated signaling transmitted from the base station to a certain terminal in the RRC layer is also referred to as a dedicated signal (dedicated signaling). That is, configurations (information) specific to (unique to) a certain terminal are signaled by the base station by using the dedicated signal.
In addition, the base station and the terminal transmit and receive a MAC control element in the MAC (Media Access Control) layer (Layer 2). Here, RRC signaling and/or MAC control element is also referred to as higher layer signaling.
An example of a method for generating a reference signal sequence r(α)u,v will be discussed hereinafter. The reference signal sequence is used to generate a sequence of the first reference signal. In addition, the reference signal sequence is used to generate a sequence of the second reference signal. For example, the reference signal sequence is defined in accordance with mathematical expression 1 by a cyclic shift of a base sequence r−(α)u,v(n).
ru,v(α)=ejαnru,v(n),0≦n≦MSCRS  [Math. 1]
That is, the reference signal sequence is generated by applying the cyclic shift α to the base sequence. In addition, multiple reference signal sequences are defined from a single base sequence through the different values of the cyclic shift α. Here, MSCRS denotes the length of a reference signal sequence, and is represented by, for example, MSCRS=mNSCRB. In addition, NSCRB denotes the size of a resource block in the frequency domain, and is represented by, for example, the number of subcarriers.
In addition, the base sequence is divided into groups. That is, the base sequence is represented by a group number (also referred to as a sequence group number) u and a base sequence number v within the corresponding group. For example, the base sequence is divided into 30 groups, and each of the groups includes two base sequences. In addition, a sequence group hopping is applied to the 30 groups. In addition, a sequence hopping is applied to two base sequences in one group.
Here, each of the sequence group number u and the base sequence number v can vary in time. In addition, the definition of a base sequence depends on the sequence length MSCRS. For example, if MSCRS≧3 NSCRB, the base sequence is given by mathematical expression 2.
ru,v(n)=xq(n mod NZCRS),0≦n≦MSCMS  [Math. 2]
Here, the q-th root Zadoff-Chu sequence xq(m) is defined by mathematical expression 3.

Here, the Zadoff-Chu sequence length NZCRS is given by the largest prime number that satisfies NZCRSSCRS.
In addition, the sequence group number u in the slot ns is defined in accordance with mathematical expression 5 using a group hopping pattern fgh(ns) and a sequence shift pattern fss.
u=(fgh(ns)+fss)mod 30  [Math. 5]
Here, the base station can instruct the terminal to enable or disable the sequence group hopping (also referred to simply as a group hopping).
Here, for example, the group hopping pattern fgh(ns) is given by mathematical expression 6.
f gh ( n s ) = { 0 if group hopping is disabled ( i = 0 7 c ( 8 n s + i ) · 2 i ) mod 30 if group hopping is enabled [ Math . 6 ]
Here, a pseudo random sequence c(i) is defined by mathematical expressions 7. For example, the pseudo random sequence is defined by a Gold sequence of length 31, and is given by mathematical expressions 7.
c(n)=(x1(n+NC)+x2(n+NC))mod 2
x1(n+31)=(x1(n+3)+x1(n))mod 2
x2(n+31)=(x2(n+3)+x2(n+2)+x2(n+1)+x2(n))mod 2  [Math. 7]
Here, for example, Nc=1600. In addition, a first m-sequence x1 is initialized by x1(0)=1 and x1(n)=0, where n=1, 2, . . . , 30. In addition, a second m-sequence x2 is initialized by mathematical expression 8.

In addition, the definition of the sequence shift pattern fss differs between the PUSCH and the PUCCH. For example, for the PUCCH, the sequence shift pattern fssPUCCH is given by mathematical expression 10. For the PUSCH, the sequence shift pattern fssPUSCH is given by mathematical expression 11.
f ss PUCCH = { N ID cell mod 30 ( 1 ) if condition A X mod 30 ( 2 ) if condition B [ Math . 10 ] f ss PUSCH = { ( f ss PUCCH + Δ ss ) mod 30 ( 1 ) if condition A ( f ss PUCCH + Y ) mod 30 ( 2 ) if condition B [ Math . 11 ]

In addition, the base sequence number v within the base sequence group in the slot ns is defined by mathematical expression 12. Here, the sequence hopping may be applied only to the reference signals whose lengths are greater than or equal to 6 NSCRB. That is, the base sequence number v is given by v=0 for the reference signals whose lengths are less than 6 NSCRB.
v = { c ( n s ) if group hopping is diabled and sequence hopping is enabled 0 otherwise [ Math . 12 ]
Here, the base station can instruct the terminal to enable or disable the sequence hopping.

In addition, MSCRS=MSCPUSCH, where MSCPUSCH is a bandwidth scheduled for uplink transmission (transmission on the PUSCH) by the base station, and is represented by, for example, the number of subcarriers. Furthermore, w(λ)(m) denotes an orthogonal sequence.
In addition, the cyclic shift αλ in the slot ns is given by αλ=2πncs,λ. Here, ncs,λ is represented by mathematical expression 15. That is, the cyclic shift applied to the first reference signal associated with PUSCH is defined by mathematical expression 15.

An example of a method for generating a sequence of the second reference signal will be discussed hereinafter. That is, a method for generating the demodulation reference signal for the PUCCH will be discussed. For example, a PUCCH demodulation reference signal sequence γ(P)PUCCH(•) is defined by mathematical expression 18.
r PUCCH ( p ) ( m N RS PUCCH M SC RS + mM SC RS + n ) = 1 p w ( p ) ( m ) r u , v ( α p ) ( n ) [ Math . 18 ]
Here, for example, m is represented as being equal to 0, . . . , or MRSPUCCH−1. In addition, n is represented as being equal to 0, . . . , or MRS−1. In addition, m′ is represented as being equal to 0 or 1. Here, p is the number of antenna ports used for PUCCH transmission (transmission on the PUCCH). In addition, the sequence γ(αp)u,v(n) is given by mathematical expression 1, where, for example, MSCRS=12.
Here, the cyclic shift αP(ns,l) is given by mathematical expressions 19. That is, the cyclic shift applied to the second reference signal associated with the PUCCH is defined by mathematical expressions 19.

Here, the base station can configure the parameter “X” to the terminal using the higher layer signaling. For example, the base station can configure the parameter “X” by using the dedicated signal. The base station may configure a plurality of parameters “X” by using the dedicated signal, and indicate one parameter “X” among the configured plurality of parameters “X” using downlink control information transmitted on the PDCCH (e.g., using the information regarding the base sequence index or using the base sequence index associated with the PUCCH).
That is, downlink control information for indicating the parameter “X” is included in the uplink grant. Downlink control information for indicating the parameter “X” may be included in the downlink assignment.
For example, the base station can configure (X0) and (X1) as the plurality of parameters “X”, and indicate (X0) or (X1) using downlink control information (e.g., 1-bit information) transmitted on the PDCCH.
In addition, the base station can configure the parameter “Y” to the terminal using the higher layer signaling.

That is, the terminal transmits, to the base station, the first reference signal generated using a different method (using a different parameter) on the basis of the PDCCH (the PDCCH or the E-PDCCH) used for the transmission of downlink control information, on the basis of the RNTI by which the CRC is scrambled, on the basis of the search space, and on the basis of the DCI format.
In addition, the terminal transmits, to the base station, the second reference signal generated using a different method (using a different parameter) on the basis of the PDCCH (the PDCCH or the E-PDCCH) used for the transmission of downlink control information, on the basis of the RNTI by which the CRC is scrambled, on the basis of the search space, and on the basis of the DCI format.
That is, the terminal transmits on the PUCCH the uplink signal generated using a different method (using a different parameter) on the basis of the PDCCH (the PDCCH or the E-PDCCH) used for the transmission of downlink control information, on the basis of the RNTI by which the CRC is scrambled, on the basis of the search space, and on the basis of the DCI format.
Using the method described above, it is possible to transmit and receive the reference signals while, for example, more flexibly switching between the sequences. In addition, using the method described above, it is possible to transmit and receive the reference signals while more dynamically switching between the sequences.
For example, it is possible to transmit and receive the reference signals using the condition A within a period during which the base station and the terminal perform configuration for the RRC layer. That is, it is possible to transmit and receive the reference signals using the condition A within a period during which ambiguous (unclear) configurations are provided (a period during which configurations are inconsistent between the base station and the terminal), which occurs in the configuration in the RRC layer.
As described above, in the case of the condition A, the terminal generates the reference signals using cell-specific parameters. That is, continuous communication is possible even within a period during which the base station and the terminal perform configuration in the RRC layer, and it is possible to achieve communication with efficient use of radio resources.
In addition, using the method described above, it is possible to transmit and receive the uplink signal while, for example, more flexibly switching between the sequences. In addition, using the method described above, it is possible to transmit and receive the uplink signal while more dynamically switching between the sequences.
