Slot formats are a fundamentally new concept in 5G NR. They help to realize different downlink and uplink allocations, particularly in time division duplex (TDD) mode. Based on an example with 120 kHz subcarrier spacing, the video explains some unique characteristics compared to TD-LTE, such as the mismatch between required periodicity and subframe duration. The demystifying 5G video series discusses main topics related to 5G including new technology components, procedures and testing challenges. More: https://www.rohde-schwarz.com/5G
