BCH Transport Channel is used to carry BCCH. In LTE, BCH carries only Master Information Block (MIB) whereas all the SIB are transmitted using BCCH mapped on DL-SCH.

BCCH mapped to BCH as well as DL-SCH.

Transport Block size of BCH is set to 24 bits.

On this 24 bits , 16 bits CRC is added and makes 40 bits.

On 40 bits,  1/3 convolution coding is applied and converted in 120 bits.

On 120 bits, rate matching is applied and converted into 1920 bits.

This 1920 bits are spread across 40ms ( 4 frames). It means 4 frames carrying the original 24 bits.

X : MIB on PBCH on slot 1 on subframe 0  
Y: MIB' on PBCH on slot 1 on Subframe 0

 <---(X)---> <---(X) ---> <---(X)---> <---(X)--->  <---(Y)---> <---(Y)---> <---(Y)---> <---(Y)--->
