(54) Title (FR): ÉTRANGLEMENT THERMIQUE UTILISANT UNE DIVERSITÉ RF

(57) Abstract:
(EN): In certain aspects, a method for communications comprises outputting a first portion of a signal to a first one of a plurality of RF modules for transmission, determining a throughput of the first one of the plurality of RF modules during thermal throttling of the first one of the plurality of RF modules, comparing the determined throughput of the first one of the plurality of RF modules with a throughput of a second one of the plurality of RF modules, and outputting a second portion of the signal to the second one of the plurality of RF modules for transmission if the throughput of the second one of the plurality of RF modules is higher than the determined throughput of the first one of the plurality of RF modules.
(FR): Dans certains aspects, l'invention concerne un procédé de communication consistant à émettre une première partie d'un signal à un premier module d'une pluralité de modules RF pour une transmission, à déterminer un débit du premier module de la pluralité de modules RF pendant un étranglement thermique du premier module de la pluralité de modules RF, à comparer le débit déterminé du premier module de la pluralité de modules RF à un débit d'un second module de la pluralité de modules RF et à émettre une seconde partie du signal au second module de la pluralité de modules RF pour une transmission, si le débit du second module RF de la pluralité de modules RF est supérieur au débit déterminé du premier module RF de la pluralité de modules RF.
