具体实施方式 Detailed ways

下面的详细描述是示例性的,仅用于说明,并不将本发明局限于此。 The following detailed description are exemplary and for illustrative purposes only, the present invention is not limited thereto. 附图说明了本发明的优选实施例,它与相关描述一起说明了本发明的原理。 The drawings illustrate preferred embodiments of the present invention, it related description illustrates the principles of the present invention together. 下面详细参看给出的本发明优选实施例。 Given in detail below with reference to a preferred embodiment of the present invention.

参看图1,示出了能够实现本发明的无线话机100。 Referring to Figure 1, there is shown a wireless telephone 100 according to the invention can be achieved. 如图2的框图所示,无线话机100包括天线202、收发信机204、包括存储器的微处理器206、包括复用器209的电源IC 208以及模数转换器211、加速计210、麦克风212、扬声器214、振动器216、键盘218和显示器220。 , The wireless telephone 100 includes an antenna 202, a transceiver block diagram 204 in FIG. 2, the microprocessor includes a memory 206, a power supply includes a multiplexer 209 and an analog IC 208 211, accelerometer 210, microphone 212 , a speaker 214, a vibrator 216, a keyboard 218, and display 220. 天线202通过收发信机204收发信号。 202204 antenna receives signals through the transceiver. 这些信号被送到微处理器206处理。 These signals are sent to the microprocessor 206 processes. 该微处理器还处理键盘218的输入,将输出发送到显示器220。 The microprocessor 218 also handles keyboard input, sends output to a display 220. 微处理器206从A/D转换器211接收输入,后者从加速计210接收模拟电压,并将电压转换成数字形式,以供微处理器206使用。 The microprocessor 211 receives input 206 from the A / D converter, which from the accelerometer 210 receives an analog voltage and converts the voltage to digital form to the microprocessor 206 for use. 在优选实施例中,加速计210的输出电压被送到复用器209,使得一个A/D转换器可以使用。 In a preferred embodiment, the accelerometer output voltage 210 is supplied to a multiplexer 209, such that an A / D converter may be used. 电源IC 208连接到麦克风212、扬声器214和振动器216,用以控制输出到这些器件的功率。 Power IC 208 connected to a microphone 212, a speaker 214 and a vibrator 216 for controlling the output power of these devices.

加速计210最好是一个基于模拟设备2轴MEMS(微电机)的加速计,部件号ADLX202,一般可从许多地方买到。 The accelerometer 210 is preferably based on a simulation device 2 axis MEMS (micro-motor) accelerometer, part number ADLX202, generally available from a number of places. 加速计210输出两个电压,每个轴X和Y一个,约在中间功率左右。 Two voltage output accelerometer 210, each of X and Y axes a, is about intermediate power. 随着无线话机加速(或移动)+/-X,+/-Y,或者出现这两者的组合,则两根线路上的DC电压增加或降低。 As wireless telephone acceleration (or mobile) +/- X, + / - Y, or there is a combination of both, DC voltage on two lines is increased or decreased. 在图5的表中,为X和Y提供的加速方向值对应于加速计210输出的电压变化方向。 In the table of FIG. 5, the direction of acceleration to provide X and Y values ​​corresponding to the voltage change of the direction of the accelerometer output 210. 例如,如果无线话机的移动引起了X加速计输出电压的DC电压增大,则“X”方向上有移动,X方向的加速是正的(+)。 For example, if the mobile wireless telephone causes the X accelerometer output voltage of the DC voltage is increased, there is the "X" direction, the acceleration in the X direction is positive (+). 如果无线话机的移动引起了X加速计输出电压的DC电压减小,则“X”方向上有移动,X方向的加速是负的(-)。 If the mobile wireless phone causes X accelerometer output voltage of the DC voltage is reduced, then the "X" have the direction, acceleration in the X direction is negative (-). 如果无线话机在X方向上没有移动,则X加速计的输出电压不发生变化,X方向上没有加速度(0)。 If the wireless phone is not moved in the X direction, the X accelerometer output voltage does not change, no acceleration (0) in the X direction. Y加速计输出电压也是如此。 Y accelerometer output voltage as well.

图2所示的电路的其余部分可以通过本领域众所周知的通用部件实现。 Remainder of the circuit shown in FIG. 2 may be implemented well known in the art common member. 因为无线话机的这些方面与本发明不直接相关,所以此处不再予以详细描述。 Wireless telephones since these aspects are not directly related to the present invention, it will not be described in detail here.

在给出的优选实施例中,微处理器206监视加速计输出电压X和Y,实现按照本发明的不同的输入方法。 In a preferred embodiment given embodiment, the microprocessor 206 monitors the accelerometer output voltage X and Y, to achieve different input methods according to the invention. 不同于用加速计作为输入方法的已知设备,本发明的微处理器206仅监视加速度变化。 Unlike the known device with an accelerometer as input method, the microprocessor 206 of the present invention is only to monitor the change in acceleration. 在本方法中,不需要知道话机的绝对或相对位置,也不需要知道话机的当前速度。 In the present method, does not need to know the absolute or relative position of the telephone, you do not need to know the current speed of the phone. 因此,不需要对加速度进行积分。 Therefore, no acceleration points.

通过动作向无线话机100输入信息的方法的优选实施例涉及以下步骤:为无线话机功能,例如关机、开机、快速拨号、卷动存储器等等,指定动作模式。 Method for inputting information to the wireless telephone 100 through the operation of the preferred embodiment involves the following steps: a wireless phone features, e.g. shutdown, power, speed dialing, scrolling memory, etc., specify the operation mode. 一旦分配并在存储器中存储了动作模式,用户就可以以特定的预定模式动作话机100,话机100将自动完成指定的功能。 Once the dispensing operation and stored in the memory mode, the user can act to a certain predetermined pattern telephone 100, the telephone 100 will automatically complete the functions specified. 在可选方案中,无线话机100在生产过程中就预先存储了动作模式,这些模式对应于或指派给了特定功能。 In an alternative embodiment, the wireless telephone 100 in the production process on previously stored operation patterns which correspond to or are assigned to a specific function. 在使用存储的动作模式完成功能之前,用户首先进入动作模式生成模式。 Before using the storage completion operation mode, the user first enters the operation mode generation mode. 在优选实施例中,用户通过按住按键102(图1)来进入该模式。 In a preferred embodiment, the user enters this mode by pressing and holding button 102 (FIG. 1). 如果按住了按键102,在用户动作话机100时,微处理器206监视X和Y加速计,从而生成动作模式。 If you hold the button 102, the phone 100 when a user operation, the microprocessor 206 monitors the X and Y accelerometers, thereby generating an operation mode. 一旦释放了按键102,表明动作模式完成,将该动作模式与存储在存储器中的模式相比较。 Upon release of the button 102 indicating that the operation mode is completed, the mode is the operation mode stored in the memory is compared. 如果存在匹配,则微处理器206指令话机100完成对应于该存储模式的功能。 If there is a match, the microprocessor 206 instruction is completed phone 100 corresponding to the storage mode function.

通过上述原理,还可以使用动作模式在无线话机100中生成字母数字字符。 By the above-described principle, the operation mode may be used to generate alphanumeric characters in the wireless telephone 100. 例如,一旦将动作模式输入话机,指派给某个字母数字字符并存储在存储器中,则用户可以以预定模式动作话机100,生成相应的字母数字字符。 For example, once the operation mode input phone, an alphanumeric character is assigned to and stored in the memory, the user may telephone 100 in a predetermined operation mode, to form the corresponding alphanumeric characters.

动作还可以用作无线话机100的输入,用以在预定时间段内话机没有动作之后,通知用户接收到某个事件。 Actions may also be used as a wireless telephone input 100 for a predetermined period of time after the phone is not in operation, the user receives an event notification. 例如,如果具有短消息服务功能的无线话机100接收到消息,微处理器206确定在从消息接收起预定时间段内没有检测到X或Y加速,在接收到该话机已动作的指示时,微处理器206可以发送一个消息给扬声器214或振动器216,将该消息通知给用户。 For example, if the wireless phone has a short message service function 100 receives the message, the microprocessor 206 determines from the received message is not detected within a predetermined period from the X or Y acceleration, upon receiving the telephone operation has been instructed, micro the processor 206 may send a message to the speaker 214 or a vibrator 216, the message notification to the user. 这种通知可以由微处理器周期性提供,直至短消息得到确认。 Such notification may be provided by the microprocessor periodically, until the message is confirmed. 该通知功能尤其适用于这样的蛤壳型话机,该话机在不用时通常隐藏显示器。 This notification feature is especially applicable to such a clamshell phone, the phone displays normally hidden when not in use. 如果没有该功能,用户需要打开蛤壳来察看是否接收到消息。 Without this feature, users need to open the clamshell to see if the message is received.

图3的流程图说明了将动作模式指派给多项功能,并将其存储在存储器中的方法。 FIG. 3 illustrates a flowchart of the operation mode is assigned to a number of functions, methods and stored in the memory. 在框300中,微处理器检测到用户选择进入动作模式指派模式。 In block 300, the microprocessor detects the user selection to enter an operation mode assignment mode. 在框302中,微处理器显示用户可以指定动作模式的所有功能。 In block 302, the microprocessor displays all the functions the user can specify the operation mode. 在用户选择了功能之后,微处理器在框304中检测出用户的选择。 After the user selects the functions, the microprocessor detects the user's selection in block 304. 在用户动作话机时,确定动作模式,微处理器在框306中监视话机的动作(加速),最好向用户显示对应于该动作的符号(框308)。 When the phone user operation, the operation mode is determined, the microprocessor at block 306 to monitor the operation of the telephone (acceleration), preferably corresponding to the operation of the display symbol (block 308) to the user. 在框310中,微处理器检测到动作模式何时结束,在框312中将动作模式存储在存储器中。 In block 310, the microprocessor detects when the end of the operation mode, the operation mode in block 312 will be stored in the memory.

图4的流程图说明了微处理器软件如何解释话机的加速的方法的优选实施例。 FIG 4 illustrates a flowchart of the microprocessor software interprets acceleration preferred embodiment of the method of the telephone. 首先,微处理器检测到用户进入到动作模式生成模式(框400)。 First, the microprocessor detects the user enters an operation mode generation mode (block 400). 在优选实施例中,这通过用户按住无线话机上的按键来实现。 In a preferred embodiment, this is achieved key is held down by the wireless telephone users. 接着,在框402中,微处理器将代表话机在同一方向上加速次数的变量n初始化为0。 Next, in block 402, the microprocessor representing the phone number in the acceleration variable n is initialized to 0 in the same direction. 微处理器从A/D转换器中读取X和Y加速值(框404)。 The microprocessor reads the X and Y acceleration values ​​(block 404) from the A / D converter. 如果加速值不大于某个阈值,处理器确定该用户是否仍处于动作模式生成模式(判定框408)。 If the acceleration is not greater than a certain threshold, the processor determines whether the user is still in operation mode generation mode (decision block 408). 如果是,则微处理器延时一段时间(框410),重复从框404开始的处理。 If so, the microprocessor delay period (block 410), repeats the process starting from block 404. 如果用户不再处于动作模式生成模式,则微处理器比较动作缓冲器中的动作和学会的固定动作模式(框412),确定缓冲模式是否匹配任何学会的固定动作模式(框414)。 Fixed mode operation pattern generating mode if the user is no longer in operation, the comparison operation of the microprocessor and buffer operation Society (block 412), it is determined whether the pattern matches a fixed buffer operational mode (block 414) any Society. 如果是,则执行与模式相关联的功能(框416),该方法结束(框428)。 If so, the pattern associated with the executed function (block 416), the method ends (block 428). 如果不是,则该方法结束(框428)。 If not, the method ends (block 428).

回头参看判决框406,如果加速值大于该阈值,表明加速已实际发生,则微处理器使用图5的查询表中的X和/或Y加速度来判定发生了什么动作(框417)。 Referring back to decision block 406, if the acceleration value is greater than the threshold value, indicates that the acceleration has actually occurred, the microprocessor of FIG. 5 using the lookup table in the X and / or Y acceleration determining what action (block 417) occurred. 接着,在判决框418中,该方法确定加速是否与最近的加速在同一方向。 Next, in decision block 418, the method determines whether the acceleration in the same direction as the latest acceleration. 如果是,则微处理器增量变量n,进行到前述判决框408。 If so, the microprocessor increments the variable n, the proceeds to decision block 408. 如果不是,则微处理器确定该次加速是否在最近的加速的相反方向(框420)。 If not, the microprocessor determines whether or not the accelerations in the recent acceleration in the opposite direction (block 420). 如果是,则微处理器减量值n(框422),确定滞后所修改的变量少于或等于0(判决框424)。 If so, the microprocessor decrement the value of n (block 422), determining the hysteresis of the modified variable less than or equal 0 (decision block 424). (滞后能够检测并区分动作的反向与动作停止,而不需要对加速度进行积分来确定速度。)如果不是,执行判决框408。 (Hysteresis operation can detect and distinguish between reverse and stop the operation, without the need for integrating the acceleration to determine the speed.) If not, decision block 408 executed. 如果是,则表明话机动作方向的反向,微处理器在动作缓冲器中加入动作,将变量n清零(框426),执行判决框408。 If so, it indicates that the reverse telephone operation direction, the operation of the microprocessor in the added operation buffer, variable n is cleared (block 426), block 408 performs the judgment.

回头参看判决框420,如果加速不是最近的加速的反方向,则微处理器确定动作缓冲器是否满(判决框423)。 Referring back to decision block 420, if the acceleration is not a recent acceleration in the opposite direction, the microprocessor determines whether the action buffer is full (decision block 423). 如果是,则已存储了最大数量的动作,该方法进行到判决框408。 If it is, already stored the maximum number of operation, the method proceeds to decision block 408. 如果不是,则在动作缓冲器中加入动作(加速),将变量n清零。 If not, the added operation (acceleration) in the operation of the buffer, the variable n is cleared.

下面描述图4所示流程图如何用于打开无线话机100的一个例子。 The following describes the flowchart shown in FIG. 4 for an example of how the opening 100 of the wireless telephone. 在本例中,“Z”动作模式对应于存储器中存储的“开机”功能。 In the present embodiment, "Z" corresponding to the operation mode stored in the memory "on" function. (下面将要解释,图5的查询表中动作1、6、1定义了“Z”动作模式)。 (Will be explained below, the lookup table of FIG. 5 1,6,1 defined operation "Z" operation mode). 在框400中,微处理器检测到用户进入了动作模式生成模式。 In block 400, the microprocessor detects the user enters an operation mode generation mode. 接着,在框402中,微处理器将加速次数初始化为0。 Next, in block 402, the microprocessor is initialized to 0 times the acceleration. 在用户加速话机之后,对应于“Z”动作模式的第一动作“1”,微处理器从加速计210(通过MUX 209和A/D转换器211)读取X和Y值。 After the phone user acceleration, corresponding to "Z" of the first operation mode is an operation, "1", the microprocessor reads the X and Y values ​​(by MUX 209 and the A / D converter 211) from the accelerometer 210. 接着,微处理器206确定该次加速是否大于某个预定阈值,确保加速的实际发生(判决框406)。 Next, the microprocessor 206 determines that the time is greater than a predetermined acceleration threshold, to ensure that the actual acceleration (decision block 406). 如果加速大于阈值,则该方法根据X和Y加速方向确定当前的动作是对应于图5的查询表中动作标识符“1”的动作(框417)。 If the acceleration is greater than the threshold, the method determines the current accelerator operation based on the X and Y directions corresponding to FIG. 5, a lookup table operation identifier "1" operation (block 417).

接着,该方法确定该次加速是否与最近的加速同一方向(框418)。 Next, the method determines whether the latest acceleration time acceleration in the same direction (block 418). 因为,这是发生的第一次加速,所以答案是“否”,该方法进行到框420,确定该次加速是否与最近的加速反方向(框420)。 Because this is the first occurrence of acceleration, so the answer is "no", the method proceeds to block 420, to determine whether the accelerations recent acceleration in the opposite direction (block 420). 因为答案仍是“否”,所以该方法进行到框423,确定该动作缓冲器是否满。 Because the answer is still "no", so the method proceeds to block 423, to determine whether the action buffer is full. 此时,在该方法中,动作缓冲器未满,所以该方法进行到框426。 At this time, in this method, the operation of the buffer is not full, so the method proceeds to block 426. 在框426中,该方法将动作(对应于动作标识符“1”)加入动作缓冲器,设置n=0。 In block 426, the operation method (operation corresponding to the identifier "1") was added operation buffer set n = 0. 接着,该方法检查用户是否仍处于动作模式生成模式(框408)。 Next, the method checks whether the user is still in operation mode generation mode (block 408). 如果是,则该方法延时,最好是100毫秒(框410),然后进行到框404,重复该处理。 If yes, the process delay, preferably 100 msec (block 410), then proceeds to block 404, the process is repeated.

如果用户仍位于完成第一动作的过程中,则判决框418的答案是“是”,该方法进行到框419,增量n。 If the user is still in the process of completing the first action, the decision block 418 the answer is "yes", the method proceeds to block 419 increments n. 只要用户正在完成第一动作,该方法保持在循环403中。 As long as the user is a first operation is completed, the process 403 remains in circulation. 当用户开始“Z”动作的下一动作时,判决框418的答案是“否”,该方法进行到判决框420。 When the user starts the next action "Z" action, the answer to decision block 418 is "no", the method proceeds to decision block 420. 在框420中,该方法确定“Z”动作的第二动作没有在第一动作的反方向,所以该方法进行到框422,检查动作缓冲器是否满。 In block 420, the method determines whether "Z" is no operation of the second operation of the first operation in the reverse direction, so the method proceeds to block 422, to check the operation of the buffer is full. 如果动作缓冲器未满,则该方法将“Z”动作的第二动作存储在动作缓冲器中,将n清零,进行到框408。 If the buffer is not full operation, the operation method in the buffer, the clear n "Z" storage operation of the second operation, proceeds to block 408. 该方法象前面描述那样继续,直至完成了“Z”动作的第三动作,并将其存储在动作缓冲器中。 The method as previously described above continues until the completion of the third action "Z" operation, and stores it in the buffer operation. 此时,用户退出模式生成模式,该方法比较动作缓冲器中的动作和存储在存储器中的动作模式(框412)。 In this case, the user exits the pattern generation mode, the operation mode of the comparison operation method and operation of the buffer stored in the memory (block 412). 如果存在匹配,则执行与该动作模式相关联的功能(框416),该方法结束(框417)。 If there is a match, then the operation mode associated with the execution of the associated function (block 416), the method ends (block 417).
