Description

TECHNICAL FIELD



[0001] The embodiments of the present application relate to the field of communication technologies and, in particular, to a wireless communication method, and a terminal device.

BACKGROUND



[0002] In a New Radio (NR) system, there exists a Channel State Information (CSI) report which is triggered aperiodically. A network device (for example, a base station) may trigger one or more CSIs to be reported at the same time by Downlink Control Information (DCI) signaling. When the number M of CSI processing units not occupied in a terminal device is less than the number N of CSIs triggered by the DCI signaling, the terminal device can select M CSIs therefrom to report. However, there is no specific solution for the terminal device to select M CSIs from the N CSIs.

[0003] R1-1802742 discloses that if a UE only has a single CSI capability unit available (either because it only has a single unit as a capability or because the other units are busy calculating other CSI reports), the UE can be expected to update CSI for the first K CSI reports such that

is smaller than the number of symbols between the last PDCCH symbol and the first PUSCH symbol.

[0004] R1-1802740 discloses that an aperiodic ReportSetting contains a list of "trigger points", each trigger point contains references of a periodic/semi-persistent/aperiodic NZP-based (or periodic SSB-based) ResourceSetting for channel measurement; a reference to a periodic/semi-persistent/aperiodic NZP-based ResourceSetting for interference measurement.

[0005] WO 2018/012850 A1 discloses that regarding a UE has the capability of calculating CSI for up to Nx CSI processes, let the number of CSI processes fox which CSI has not been reported yet be denoted by Nu, then, CSI is calculated only for max(Nx-Nu, 0) CSI processes among CSI processes for which aperiodic CSI reporting is triggered, while CSI is not calculated for the remaining CSI processes.

SUMMARY



[0006] It is an object of the invention to provide a wireless communication method, and a terminal device with which, when there are not enough CSI processing units in the idle state, the terminal device can select a part of CSIs from a plurality of aperiodic CSIs that are triggered by the network device to be fed back to feed back, and the manner of CSI feedback is more flexible. This object is solved by subject-matter of the independent claims.

[0007] In a first aspect, a wireless communication method is provided, which includes:

receiving, by a terminal device first information and second information transmitted by a network device, where the first information is configured to trigger the terminal device to feed back aperiodic N CSIs, and to indicate a Physical Uplink Shared Channel (PUSCH) resource to be used when the CSIs are fed back, and the second information is configured to indicate channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to the N CSIs, N being an integer greater than or equal to 2;

determining, by the terminal device, M CSIs that need to be fed back from the N CSIs according to the first information, the second information and M CSI processing units currently in an idle state, M being an integer greater than 0 and less than N;

calculating, by the terminal device, payloads of the M CSIs that need to be fed back, respectively, and feeding back the M CSIs that need to be fed back on the PUSCH resource;

wherein the determining (S220), by the terminal device, M CSIs that need to be fed back from the N CSIs according to the first information, the second information and M CSI processing units currently in an idle state, M being an integer greater than 0 and less than N, comprises:

determining at least one first time span for CSI calculation according to the first information, the second information and the M CSI processing units currently in the idle state; and

determining the M CSIs that need to be fed back from the N CSIs according to the at least one first time span;

wherein the determining at least one first time span for CSI calculation according to the first information, the second information and the M CSI processing units currently in the idle state, comprises:

determining a time span between a last symbol of a resource that appears first among channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to each CSI group of X CSI groups following a physical downlink control channel, PDCCH, and a first symbol reported on a PUSCH as one first time span, to obtain X first time spans, wherein each CSI group includes M CSIs, and each CSI in the X CSI groups belongs to the N CSIs, X being an integer greater than or equal to 2; or

determining a time span between a last symbol of a resource that appears first among channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to T CSIs in each CSI group of X CSI groups following a PDCCH, and a first symbol reported on a PUSCH as one first time span, to obtain X first time spans, wherein each CSI group includes M CSIs, and channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to M-T CSIs included in each CSI group are periodic resources or quasi-periodic resources, and the terminal device (400) has already cached downlink channel information corresponding to the M-T CSIs before receiving the first information and the second information, and each CSI in the X CSI groups belongs to the N CSIs, X being an integer greater than or equal to 2, and T being an integer greater than 0 and less than M;

wherein the determining at least one first time span for CSI calculation according to the first information, the second information and the M CSI processing units currently in the idle state, further comprises:

determining the M CSIs that need to be fed back from the at least one CSI candidate.



[0008] Therefore, in the embodiments of the present application, the network device triggers the terminal device to feed back N aperiodic CSIs, while the terminal device has only M CSI processing units in the idle state currently, the terminal device determines M CSIs that need to be fed back from the N CSIs, and feeds back on the PUSCH resource indicated by the network device, and thus, the feeding back of CSI is performed with more flexibility.

[0009] It should be noted that in the embodiments of the present application, when a user's CSI processing capability is Type A, the calculation time required for M CSIs is the sum of the calculation times required for each CSI.

[0011] In some possible implementations, when subcarrier spacings of channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to different CSIs of the N CSIs are different, a calculation time required for each CSI of the N CSIs needs to be converted to an absolute length of time, and the absolute length of time is obtained according to a time unit and a calculation time (measured by OFDM symbols) corresponding to a minimum subcarrier spacing selected according to a subcarrier spacing of a measurement resource and a subcarrier spacing for reporting the PUSCH.

[0012] It should be noted that the measurement resource may be a channel measurement resource and/or an interference measurement resource.

selecting, by the terminal device, from the at least one CSI candidate, a CSI candidate with a minimum sum of CSI payloads as the M CSIs that need to be fed back; or

selecting, by the terminal device, from the at least one CSI candidate, a CSI candidate with a maximum sum of CSI payloads as the M CSIs that need to be fed back; or

selecting, by the terminal device, from the at least one CSI candidate, a CSI candidate with a maximum sum of CSI payloads that the PUSCH resource can support as the M CSIs that need to be fed back.

[0016] In some possible implementations, the channel measurement and interference measurement resources indicated by the second information are one type among periodic resources, quasi-periodic resources and aperiodic resources.

[0017] In some possible implementations, the first information is DCI, and the second information is one of DCI, Radio Resource Control (RRC) dedicated signaling and Media Access Control Control Element (MAC CE).

[0042] The wireless communication method of the embodiments of the present application is described in the following with reference to FIG. 2 to FIG. 6. It should be understood that FIG. 2 to FIG. 6 are just illustrative flowcharts of the wireless communication method of the embodiments of the present application, which illustrate specific communicating steps or operations of the method. However, these steps or operations are just illustrative, and other operations or various variants of the operations illustrated in FIG. 2 to FIG. 6 may be performed in the embodiments of the present application, and the order to execute the steps illustrated in FIG. 2 to FIG. 6 is not limited in the embodiments of the present application.

[0043] Additionally, the steps illustrated in FIG. 2 to FIG. 6 may be performed respectively in a different order from the orders illustrated in FIG. 2 to FIG. 6, and it is possible that not all the operations in FIG. 2 to FIG. 6 are to be performed.

[0044] Fig. 2 is a schematic flowchart of a wireless communication method 200according to an embodiment of the present application. The method 200 may in an implementation be applied, but not limited to being applied, to the system illustrated in FIG. 1. The method 200 includes at least part of the following contents.

[0045] S210, a terminal device receives first information and second information transmitted by a network device, where the first information is configured to trigger the terminal device to feed back aperiodic N CSIs, and to indicate a PUSCH resource to be used when the CSIs are fed back, the second information is configured to indicate channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to the N CSIs, N being an integer greater than or equal to 2.

[0046] It should be understood that the CSI in the embodiment of the present application can be understood as a CSI report.

[0047] In an implementation, the first information may be DCI.

[0048] Specifically, the first information is specifically configured to indicate a PUSCH time domain resource to be used when the CSIs are fed back, and the PUSCH time domain resource include: a slot location, a starting symbol and lasting symbols.

[0049] For example, the PUSCH time domain resource indicated by the first information includes: slot 1, a starting symbol at symbol 3, and lasting for 9 symbols.

[0050] It should be understood that a symbol in the embodiment of the present application may be an orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) symbol.

[0051] In an implementation, the second information may be one of DCI, RRC dedicated specific signaling and MAC CE.

[0052] Specifically, the second information is specifically configured to indicate channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources corresponding to the N CSIs, where the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources include a slot location, a starting symbol and lasting symbols.

[0053] For example, the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources indicated by the second information include: slot 2, a starting symbol at symbol 0 and lasting for 11 symbols.

[0054] In an implementation, the channel measurement and interference measurement resources indicated by the second information may be periodic resources, quasi-periodic resources or aperiodic resources.

[0055] It should be noted that periodic channel measurement and interference measurement resources may be pre-configured, for example, the period resources may be semi-statically configured. Quasi-periodic channel measurement and interference measurement resources may also be pre-configured, but need to be triggered by signaling (for example, MAC CE) to be effective. Aperiodic channel measurement and interference measurement resources need to be dynamically allocated, for example, the aperiodic resources may be dynamically allocated by DCI signaling or RRC signaling.

[0056] In an implementation, the network device may send the first information and the second information to the terminal device by PDCCH.

[0057] In an implementation, if both the first information and the second information are DCI, the first information and the second information may be the same information.

[0058] It should be understood that a CSI corresponds to a set of channel measurement and interference measurement resources. The channel measurement and interference measurement resources may be understood as a channel measurement resource and an interference measurement resource.

[0059] In an implementation, the subcarrier spacings (numerologies) of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to different CSIs of the N CSIs may be different, and the subcarrier spacings (numerologies) of a set of channel measurement resources and interference measurement resources corresponding to a CSI report are the same.

[0060] It should be noted that when the subcarrier spacings of channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to different CSIs of the N CSIs arc different, the calculation time required for each CSI of the N CSIs is obtained according to a time unit and a calculation time corresponding to a minimum subcarrier spacing of a subcarrier spacing of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to each CSI of the N CSIs and a subcarrier spacings for reporting a PUSCH.

[0061] S220, the terminal device determines M CSIs that need to be fed back from the N CSIs, according to the first information, the second information and M CSI processing units currently in an idle state, M being an integer greater than 0 and less than N.

[0062] It should be noted that the terminal device may determine CSIs that need to be fed back according to the number of CSI processing units currently in an idle state, where a CSI processing unit in the idle state corresponds to a CSI feedback. In other words, if the terminal device has only one CSI processing unit that is in the idle state currently, the terminal device will fed back only one CSI, even though the network device triggers the terminal device to feed back multiple CSIs.

[0063] In an implementation, the number of CSIs that can be fed back by the terminal device M =Ncpu - L, where Ncpu is the number of CSIs that can be processed simultaneously, and L is the number of processing units currently occupied.

[0064] It should be noted that in the embodiments of the present application, when a user's CSI processing capability is Type A, the calculation time required for M CSIs is a sum of the calculation time required for each CSI.

[0065] S230, the terminal device calculates the payloads of the M CSIs that need to be fed back, respectively, and feeds back the M CSIs that need to be fed back on the PUSCH resource.

[0066] It should be noted that the terminal device can reasonably allocate the PUSCH resource based on the payloads of M CSIs that need to be fed back, and then feed back the M CSIs that need to be fed back on the PUSCH resource.

[0067] Specifically, as an embodiment, in step 220,
the terminal device determines at least one first time span for CSI calculation, according to the first information, the second information and the M CSI processing units currently in the idle state;
the terminal device determines M CSIs that need to be fed back from the N CSIs according to the at least one first time span.

[0068] In an implementation, the terminal device may determine at least one CSI calculation time according to the first information, the second information and the M CSI processing units currently in idle state in the following manners.

[0069] Manner a, the terminal device determines a time span between a last symbol of a resource that appears first among the channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to each CSI group of X CSI groups following a PDCCH, and a first symbol reported on a PUSCH as one first time span, to obtain X first time spans, where each CSI group includes M CSIs, and each CSI in the X CSI groups belongs to the N CSIs, X being an integer greater than or equal to 2.

[0070] Manner b, the terminal device determines a time span between a last symbol of a resource that appears first among the channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to T CSIs in each CSI group of X CSI groups following a PDCCH, and a first symbol reported on a PUSCH as one first time span, to obtain X first time spans, where each CSI group includes M CSIs, and the channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to M-T CSIs included in each CSI group are periodic resources or quasi-periodic resources, and the terminal device has already cached downlink channel information corresponding to the M-T CSIs before receiving the first information and the second information, and cach CSI in the X CSI groups belongs to the N CSIs, X being an integer greater than or equal to 2, and T being an integer greater than 0 and less than M.

[0071] In an implementation,

in the manner a and the manner b described above. For example, when M=3, and N =5, X=10.

[0072] Manner c, the terminal device determines a time span between a last symbol of a resource that appears first among the channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to K CSIs of the N CSIs following a PDCCH, and a first symbol reported on a PUSCH as the first time span, where the channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to N-K CSIs of the N CSIs are periodic resources or quasi-periodic resources, and the terminal device has already cached downlink channel information corresponding to the N-K CSIs before receiving the first information and the second information, K being an integer greater than 0 and less than N.

[0073] Manner d, the terminal device determines a time span between a last symbol of a resource that appears first among the channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to the N CSIs following a PDCCH, and a first symbol reported on a PUSCH as the first time span, where the channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to the N CSIs may be periodic resources, quasi-periodic resources, or aperiodic resources.

[0074] In an implementation, after obtaining the X first time spans based on the manner a and the manner b described above, the M CSIs that need to be fed back may be determined in the following manner e.

[0075] Manner e, the terminal device determines first time span(s) satisfying a first condition from the X first time spans, and takes M CSIs corresponding to each first time span satisfying the first condition as a CSI candidate, to obtain at least one CSI candidate, where the first condition is that a first time span is longer than or equal to a sum of respective calculation times of corresponding M CSIs;
the terminal device determines the M CSIs that need to be fed back from the at least one CSI candidate.

[0076] In an implementation, after obtaining the first time span based on the manner c and the manner d described above, the M CSIs that need to be fed back may be determined in the following manner f.

[0077] Manner f, the terminal device determines M CSIs which satisfy a second condition as a CSI candidate, to obtain at least one CSI candidate, where the second condition is that a sum of respective calculation times of the M CSIs is shorter than or equal to the first time span;
the terminal device determines the M CSIs that need to be fed back from the at least one CSI candidate.

[0078] In an implementation, in the manner c and the manner f, the terminal device may determine the M CSIs that need to be fed back from the at least one CSI candidate in the following manners.

[0079] Manner g, the terminal device randomly selects a CSI candidate and determines that the CSI candidate is the M CSIs that need to be fed back.

[0080] Manner h, the terminal device selects, from the at least one CSI candidate, a CSI candidate with a maximum sum of calculation times required as the M CSIs that need to be fed back.

[0081] Manner i, the terminal device selects, from the at least one CSI candidate, a CSI candidate with a highest priority as the M CSIs that need to be fed back.

[0082] It should be noted that the terminal device may calculate priorities of the N CSIs, and thus, the priority of each CSI candidate may be determined.

[0083] For example, when M=2, CSI candidate 1 includes CSI 1 and CSI 2, and CSI candidate 2 includes CSI 3 and CSI 4, where the order of priorities of CSIs is: CSI 1 > CSI 2 > CSI 3 > CSI 4. In this case, the terminal device may select CSI candidate 1 as the two CSIs that need to be fed back.

[0084] Manner j, the terminal device selects the M CSIs that need to be fed back from the at least one CSI candidate according to a CSI configuration order.

[0085] For example, when M = 4, CSI candidate 1 includes CSI 1, CSI 2, CSI 4 and CSI 5, CSI candidate 2 includes CSI 2, CSI 3, CSI 4 and CSI 5, where the order of priorities of CSIs is: from CSI 1 to CSI 5. In this case, the terminal device may select CSI candidate 1 as the four CSIs that need to be fed back.

[0086] Manner k, the terminal device selects, from the at least one CSI candidate, a CSI candidate with a minimum sum of CSI payloads as the M CSIs that need to be fed back.

[0087] Manner 1, the terminal device selects, from the at least one CSI candidate, a CSI candidate with a maximum sum of CSI payloads as the M CSIs that need to be fed back.

[0088] Manner m, the terminal device selects, from the at least one CSI candidate, a CSI candidate with a maximum sum of CSI payloads that the PUSCH resource can support as the M CSIs that need to be fed back.

[0089] Specifically, as an embodiment, in step 220,
the terminal device calculates the priorities of the N CSIs, and selects sequentially, according to the order of the priorities, M CSIs with the highest priorities from the N CSIs as the M CSIs that need to be fed back.

[0090] For example, when N=5 and M=3, the order of priorities of CSI is: CSI 1 > CSI 2 > CSI 3 > CSI 4 > CSI 5. The terminal device firstly selects CSI 1, then selects CSI 2, and lastly selects CSI 3 according to the order of priorities, namely, the terminal device selects CSI 1, CSI 2 and CSI 3 sequentially from the five CSIs according to the order of priorities, as the three CSIs that need to be fed back.

[0091] In an implementation, in this embodiment, if the calculation time required for the M CSIs that need to be fed back is longer than the time span between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to the M CSIs that need to be fed back and the first symbol reported on the PUSCH, the terminal device gives up on feeding back the M CSIs that need to be fed back. In other words, if the calculation time required for the M CSIs that need to be fed back is longer than the time span between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to the M CSIs that need to be fed back and the first symbol reported on the PUSCH, the calculation time of the M CSIs that need to be fed back does not satisfy the feedback requirement. In this case, the terminal device gives up on executing step 230.

[0092] In an implementation, in this embodiment, if the sum of time spans from detecting a PDCCH to reporting a PUSCH that are respectively required for the M CSIs that need to be fed back is longer than the time span between the last symbol of the PDCCH and the first symbol reported on the PUSCH, the terminal device gives up on feeding back the M CSIs that need to be fed back. In other words, if the sum of time spans from detecting a PDCCH to reporting a PUSCH that are respectively required for the M CSIs that need to be fed back is longer than the time span between the last symbol of the PDCCH and the first symbol reported on the PUSCH, the sum of time spans from detecting a PDCCH to reporting a PUSCH that are respectively required for the M CSIs that need to be fed back docs not satisfy the feedback requirement. In this case, the terminal device gives up on executing step 230.

[0093] Specifically, as an embodiment, in step 220,
the terminal device selects, according to an order of configuring the N CSIs, the M CSIs that are configured first from the N CSIs as the M CSIs that need to be fed back.

[0094] For example, when N=5 and M=3, the CSI configuration order: from CSI 1 to CSI 5, and the terminal device selects CSI 1, CSI 2 and CSI 3 as the three CSIs that need to be fed back according to the configuration order.

[0095] In an implementation, in this embodiment, if the calculation time required for the M CSIs that need to be fed back is longer than the time span between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to the M CSIs that need to be fed back and the first symbol reported on the PUSCH, the terminal device gives up on feeding back the M CSIs that need to be fed back. In other words, if the calculation time required for the M CSIs that need to be fed back is longer than the time span between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to the M CSIs that need to be fed back and the first symbol reported on the PUSCH, the calculation time of the M CSIs that need to be fed back does not satisfy the feedback requirement. In this case, execution of step 230 is given up.

[0096] In an implementation, in this embodiment, if the sum of time spans from dctccting a PDCCH to reporting a PUSCH that arc respectively required for the M CSIs that need to be fed back is longer than the time span between the last symbol of the PDCCH and the first symbol reported on the PUSCH, the terminal device gives up on feeding back the M CSIs that need to be fed back. In other words, if the sum of time spans from detecting a PDCCH to reporting a PUSCH that are respectively required for the M CSIs that need to be fed back is longer than the time span between the last symbol of the PDCCH and the first symbol reported on the PUSCH, the sum of time spans from detecting a PDCCH to reporting a PUSCH that are respectively required for the M CSIs that need to be fed back does not satisfy the feedback requirement. In this case, the terminal device gives up on cxccuting step 230.

[0097] The wireless communication method 200 in embodiments of the present application is described below in conjunction with specific embodiments.

[0098] In an implementation, as an embodiment, as shown in Table 1, a terminal device receives a first message and a second message transmitted by a network device, the first message triggers the terminal device to feed back two CSI reports (CSI 1 and CSI 2), the second message indicates channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources corresponding to CSI 1 and CSI 2, respectively, where, with respect to CSI 1, the calculation time Z' required is 10 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following a PDCCH and the first symbol of a PUSCH is 13 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following the PDCCH and the last symbol of channel measurement and interference measurement resources is 2 symbols, the distance between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH is 11 symbols; with respect to CSI 2, the calculation time Z' required is 5 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following the PDCCH and the first symbol of the PUSCH is 13 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following the PDCCH and the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources is 6 symbols, and the distance between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH is 7 symbols. At this time, the terminal device has only one CSI processing unit in the idle state, so the terminal device needs to select one of CSI 1 and CSI 2 to feed back.

[0099] For example, the terminal device may, according to the manner a or the manner b described above, determine two first time spans which respectively are the distance (11 symbols) between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to CSI 1 and the first symbol of the PUSCH, and the distance (7 symbols) between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to CSI 2 and the first symbol of the PUSCH. Then the terminal device may, according to the manner e described above, determine that both CSI 1 and CSI 2 satisfy the feedback condition. And lastly, the terminal device may, based on any manner of the manner g to the manner m, select one CSI from CSI 1 and CSI 2 to feed back.

[0100] For another example, the terminal device may, according to the manner c or the manner d described above, determine a first time span which is the distance (7 symbols) between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to CSI 2 and the first symbol of the PUSCH. Then, the terminal device may determine CSI 2 as a CSI that needs to be fed back according to the manner f described above.

[0101] It should be noted that, as illustrated in FIG. 3, there may exists channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources, CSI calculation time and some other time domain resources between a PDCCH and a PUSCH. With respect to CSI 1, the first symbol following the PDCCH is a time domain resource for implementing other functions, the second symbol following the PDCCH is the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources corresponding to CSI 1, and meanwhile, a time domain resource that may be used for CSI calculation may be symbols (11 symbols) between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH; with respect to CSI 2, the first three symbols following the PDCCH are the time domain resource for implementing other functions, the fourth symbol, the fifth symbol and the sixth symbol following the PDCCH are the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources corresponding to CSI 2, and meanwhile, the time domain resource that may be used for CSI calculation may be symbols (7 symbols) between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH.

[0102] It should be understood that, in Table 1, the resource for channel measurement may be a Channel State Information Reference Signal (CSI-RS), the resource for interference measurement may be a Channel State Information Interference Measurement (CSI-IM) resource. In addition, the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources may be aperiodic (AP) type resources.

[0103] In an implementation, as an embodiment, as shown in Table 2, a terminal device receives a first message and a second message transmitted by a network device, the first message triggers the terminal device to feed back five CSI reports (CSI 1, CSI 2, CSI 3, CSI 4 and CSI 5), the second message indicates channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources corresponding to CSI 1, CSI 2, CSI 3, CSI 4 and CSI 5, respectively, where, with respect to CSI 1, the calculation time Z' required is 5 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following a PDCCH and the first symbol of a PUSCH is 20 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following the PDCCH and the last symbol of channel measurement and interference measurement resources is 1 symbol, and the distance between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH is 19 symbols; with respect to CSI 2, the calculation time Z' required is 5 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following the PDCCH and the first symbol of the PUSCH is 20 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following the PDCCH and the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources is 2 symbols, and the distance between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH is 18 symbols; with respect to CSI 3, the calculation time Z' required is 5 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following the PDCCH and the first symbol of the PUSCH is 20 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following the PDCCH and the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources is 3 symbols, and the distance between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH is 17 symbols; with respect to CSI 4, the calculation time Z' required is 10 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following the PDCCH and the first symbol of the PUSCH is 20 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following the PDCCH and the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources is 4 symbols, and the distance between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH is 16 symbols; and with respect to CSI 5, the calculation time Z' required is 10 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following the PDCCH and the first symbol of the PUSCH is 20 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following the PDCCH and the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources is 4 symbols, the distance between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH is 16 symbols. At this time, the terminal device has only three CSI processing units in the idle state, so the terminal device needs to select three from CSI 1, CSI 2, CSI 3, CSI 4 and CSI 5 to feed back.

[0104] For example, the terminal device may, according to the manner a or the manner b described above, determine three first time spans which, respectively, are the distance (17 symbols) between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to CSI 3 and the first symbol of the PUSCH, the distance (16 symbols) between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to CSI 4 and the first symbol of the PUSCH, and the distance (16 symbols) between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to CSI 5 and the first symbol of the PUSCH. Then, the terminal device may, according to the manner c described above, determine that only CSI 1, CSI 2 and CSI 3 satisfy the feedback condition, and the terminal device may feed back CSI 1, CSI 2 and CSI 3.

[0105] It should be noted that, as illustrated in FIG. 4, there may exists channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources, CSI calculation time and some other time domain resources between a PDCCH and a PUSCH. With respect to CSI 1, the first symbol following the PDCCH is the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources corresponding to CSI 1, and meanwhile the time domain resource that may be used for CSI calculation may be symbols (19 symbols) between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH; with respect to CSI 2, the first symbol following the PDCCH is the time domain resource for implementing other functions, the second symbol following the PDCCH is the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources corresponding to CSI 2, and meanwhile the time domain resource that may be used for CSI calculation may be symbols (18 symbols) between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH; with respect to CSI 3, the first symbol following the PDCCH is the time domain resource for implementing other functions, the second symbol and the third symbol following the PDCCH are the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources corresponding to CSI 3, and meanwhile the time domain resource that may be used for CSI calculation may be symbols (17 symbols) between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH; with respect to CSI 4, the first symbol following the PDCCH is the time domain resource for implementing other functions, the second symbol, the third symbol and the fourth symbol following the PDCCH are the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources corresponding to CSI 4, and meanwhile the time domain resource that may be used for CSI computing may be symbols (16 symbols) between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH; with respect to CSI 5, the first symbol and the second symbol following the PDCCH are the time domain resource for implementing other functions, the third symbol and the fourth symbol following the PDCCH are the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources corresponding to CSI 5, and meanwhile the time domain resource that may be used for CSI computing may be symbols (16 symbols) between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH.

[0106] It should be understood that, in Table 2, the resource for channel measurement may be a CSI-RS, the resource for interference measurement may be a CSI-IM resource. Meanwhile, the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources may be AP type resources.

[0107] In an implementation, as an embodiment, as shown in Table 3, a terminal device receives a first message and a second message transmitted by a network device, the first message triggers the terminal device to feed back five CSI reports (CSI 1, CSI 2, CSI 3, CSI 4 and CSI 5), the second message indicates channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources corresponding to CSI 1, CSI 2, CSI 3, CSI 4 and CSI 5, respectively, where, with respect to CSI 1, the calculation time Z' required is 5 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following a PDCCH and the first symbol of a PUSCH is 25 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following the PDCCH and the last symbol of channel measurement and interference measurement resources is 1 symbol, and the distance between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH is 24 symbols; with respect to CSI 2, the calculation time Z' required is 5 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following the PDCCH and the first symbol of the PUSCH is 25 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following the PDCCH and the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources is 2 symbols, and the distance between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH is 23 symbols; with respect to CSI 3, the calculation time Z' required is 5 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following the PDCCH and the first symbol of the PUSCH is 25 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following the PDCCH and the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources is 3 symbols, and the distance between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH is 22 symbols; with respect to CSI 4, the calculation time Z' required is 10 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following the PDCCH and the first symbol of the PUSCH is 25 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following the PDCCH and the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources is 4 symbols, and the distance between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH is 21 symbols; with respect to CSI 5, the calculation time Z' required is 10 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following the PDCCH and the first symbol of the PUSCH is 25 symbols, the distance between the first symbol following the PDCCH and the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources is 4 symbols, and the distance between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH is 21 symbols. At this time, the terminal device has only three CSI processing units in the idle state, so the terminal device needs to select three from CSI 1, CSI 2, CSI 3, CSI 4 and CSI 5 to feed back.

[0108] For example, the terminal device may, according to the manner a or the manner b described above, determine three first time spans which, respectively, are the distance (22 symbols) between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to CSI 3 and the first symbol of the PUSCH, the distance (21 symbols) between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to CSI 4 and the first symbol of the PUSCH, and the distance (21 symbols) between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resource corresponding to CSI 5 and the first symbol of the PUSCH. Then the terminal device may, according to the manner e described above, determine the CSI candidates that satisfy the feedback condition include: CSI candidate 1 (CSI 1, CSI 2, and CSI 3), CSI candidate 2 (CSI 1, CSI 2, and CSI 4), CSI candidate 3 (CSI 1, CSI 2, and CSI 5), CSI candidate 4 (CSI 1, CSI 3, and CSI 4), CSI candidate 5 (CSI 1, CSI 3, and CSI 5), CSI candidate 6 (CSI 2, CSI 3, and CSI 4), CSI candidate 7 (CSI 2, CSI 3, and CSI 5). And lastly, the terminal device may, based on any one of the manner f to the manner 1, select one CSI candidate from CSI candidate 1 to CSI candidate 7 to feed back.

[0109] For another example, the terminal device may, according to the manner c or the manner d described above, determine a first time span which is the distance (21 symbols) between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement resources corresponding to CSI 4 or CSI 5 and the first symbol of the PUSCH. Then, the terminal device may, according to the manner f described above, determine the CSI candidates that satisfy the feedback condition include: CSI candidate 1 (CSI 1, CSI 2, and CSI 3), CSI candidate 2 (CSI 1, CSI 2, and CSI 4), CSI candidate 3 (CSI 1, CSI 2, and CSI 5), CSI candidate 4 (CSI 1, CSI 3, and CSI 4), CSI candidate 5 (CSI 1, CSI 3, and CSI 5), CSI candidate 6 (CSI 2, CSI 3, and CSI 4), CSI candidate 7 (CSI 2, CSI 3, and CSI 5). And lastly, the terminal device may, based on any one of the manner f to the manner 1, select one CSI candidate from CSI candidate 1 to CSI candidate 7 to feed back.

[0110] It should be noted that, as illustrated in FIG. 5, there may exists channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources, CSI calculation time and some other time domain resources between a PDCCH and a PUSCH. With respect to CSI 1, the first symbol following the PDCCH is the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources corresponding to CSI 1, and the time domain resource that may be used for CSI calculation may be symbols (24 symbols) between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH; with respect to CSI 2, the first symbol following the PDCCH is the time domain resource for implementing other functions, the second symbol following the PDCCH is the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources corresponding to CSI 2, and the time domain resource that may be used for CSI calculation may be symbols (23symbols) between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH; with respect to CSI 3, the first symbol following the PDCCH is the time domain resource for implementing other functions, the second symbol and the third symbol following the PDCCH are the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources corresponding to CSI 3, and the time domain resource that may be used for CSI calculation may be symbols (22 symbols) between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH; with respect to CSI 4, the first symbol following the PDCCH is the time domain resource for implementing other functions, the second symbol, the third symbol and the fourth symbol following the PDCCH are the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources corresponding to CSI 4, and the time domain resource that may be used for CSI calculation may be symbols (21 symbols) between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH; with respect to CSI 5, the first symbol and the second symbol following the PDCCH are the time domain resource for implementing other functions, the third symbol and the fourth symbol following the PDCCH arc the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources corresponding to CSI 5, and the time domain resource that may be used for CSI calculation may be symbols (21 symbols) between the last symbol of the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources and the first symbol of the PUSCH.

[0111] It should be understood that, in Table 3, the resource for channel measurement may be a CSI-RS, the resource for interference measurement may be a CSI-IM resource. Meanwhile, the channel measurement and interference measurement time domain resources may be AP type resources.

[0112] Therefore, in the embodiments of the present application, the network device triggers the terminal device to feed back N aperiodic CSIs, while the terminal device has only M CSI processing units currently in the idle state, the terminal device determines M CSIs that need to be fed back from the N CSIs, and feeds back on the PUSCH resource indicated by the network device, and thus, the feeding back of CSI can be performed with more flexibility.

[0113] Fig. 6 is a schematic flowchart of a wireless communication method 300 according to an embodiment of the present application. The method 300 may in an implementation applied to, but not limited to being applied to, the system illustrated in Fig. 1. The method 300 includes at least part of the following contents.
