Title: SEARCH SPACE DESIGN FOR SEMI-PERSISTENT SCHEDULING (SPS) IN ENHANCED MACHINE-TYPE COMMUNICATIONS
Abstract:
Certain aspects of the present disclosure generally relate to techniques for detecting downlink control information (DCI). In some cases, by making two different DCIs (e.g., used for different types of transmission schemes-one that supports SPS and one that does not support SPS) the same size, complexity at the UE (in terms of number of blind decodes) may be reduced. Since the DCIs are the same size, the UE may monitor a search space with decoding candidates for both types of DCI by doing a single decode per candidate.
