5G NR TBS calculation | 5G NR Transport Block size Calculation
This page mentions 5G NR TBS determination procedure. The TBS (Transport Block Size) calculation is based Qm,R,v and number of REs mentioned in 5G NR 38.214 standard. The formula or equations used in 5G NR TBS calculation are also mentioned.
5G NR Transport Block size (TBS) Calculation | 5G NR TBS determination procedure
The following paragraph covers 5G NR TBS determination procedure including formula or equations are used in 5G NR TBS calculation.
➤Step-1: In the 5G NR standard there are three tables 22.214.171.124-1, 126.96.36.199-2 and 188.8.131.52-3 which gives modulation order (Qm) and target code rate (R) based on MCS Index (IMCS). In the calculator we will be taking Qm and R directly for TBS calculation.
➤Step-2: NRE is determined based on N'RE and nPRB. Here N'RE is the number of REs allocated for PDSCH within a PRB (physical resource block). We will be taking NRE directly for TBS calculator.
➤Step-3: First calculate Ninfo from NRE, R, Qm and v and use following procedure used for TBS (Transport Block Size) determination. For Ninfo <=3824 follow procedure-1 (Step-3 in the pdf document) and Ninfo > 3824 follow procedure-2 (Step-4 in the pdf document).
➤Follow pdf mentioned below for complete understanding of 5G NR TBS determination or calculation.
