Description

Method for setting <B> to </ B> day of a main program executed by a radiocommunication module, and / or associated data <B> to </ B> this main program, and corresponding radio communication module.

The field of the invention is that of mobile radio systems.

The invention applies in particular, but not exclusively, in radio communication systems of the type GSM <B> 900 </ B> (for "Global System for Mobile <B> - 900 </ B> MHz"), DCS < B> 1800 </ B> (for "Digital Cellular System <B> - 1800 </ B> MHz"), <B> 1900 </ B> (for "Personal Communication System <B> - 1900 </ B> MHz ") or UMTS (for" Universal Mobile Telecommunication System <B> - </ B> 2 GHz ").

More specifically, the invention relates to a method for setting a main program executed by a radiocommunication module and / or associated data to this program. main.

Firstly, what is meant by radiocommunication radio module. Conventionally, a subscriber of a radiocommunication system, for example of the GSM type, has a mobile station (sometimes also called a mobile radiotelephone or mobile phone) comprising a radiocommunication terminal (or ME for mobile equipment). "in English) cooperating with a SIM card (for" Subscriber Identity Module "in English, or subscriber identification module).

In its first application, which is the most conventional, the radiocommunication module (for example a "GSM module") is included in the radiocommunication terminal and provides the wireless communication function, controlling various hardware elements (screen , keyboard, speaker, <B> ...) </ B> of the radio terminal.

Other applications of the radio communication module are also known.

<B> It </ B> has been proposed to include it in devices other than radio terminals, but nevertheless requiring wireless communication functionality. <B> A </ B> as an example, there may be mentioned telemetry devices (meter readings) or card reader devices.

<tb> This <SEP> technique <SEP> classic <SEP> of <SEP> update <SEP> up to date <SEP> has <SEP> several <SEP> disadvantages.

<tb> owner, <SEP> is <SEP> not <SEP> without <SEP> asking <SEP> for <SEP> problems,
<tb> In <SEP> effect, <SEP> this <SEP> implies <SEP> a <SEP> distribution <SEP><B><SEP> each <SEP> of <SEP> users <SEP > wishing

<tb> new <SEP> data, <SEP> but <SEP> also <SEP> of the <SEP> program <SEP> of <SEP> download <SEP> side <SEP> equipment.
<tb> besides, <SEP> of the <SEP> makes <SEP> of <SEP> its <SEP> character <SEP>"specific<SEP>owner",<SEP> a <SEP> such <SEP> program <SEP > from
<tb> download <SEP> side <SEP> equipment <SEP> is <SEP> usually <SEP> executable <SEP> only <SEP> by <SEP> a <SEP> only <SEP> type
<tb> equipment <SEP> (by <SEP> example <SEP><SEP> microcomputers <SEP> under <SEP><SEP> operating system <SEP><B> DOS. </ B><SEP> Gold,
<tb> it <SEP> is <SEP> frequent <SEP> that <SEP> the <SEP> various <SEP> users <SEP> do not use <SEP> not <SEP> all <SEP> the same <SEP><SEP> type <SEP> of equipment. Therefore, when you upgrade to <B> at </ B> day, you have to develop as many new "proprietary" programs as you have <B> y </ B> a different types of equipment.

Likewise, the proprietary protocol, on which the download programs on the equipment and module side are developed, is generally specific to the physical medium (serial link, infrared link, radio link, <B> ...). </ B> which is implemented. When upgrading to <B> at </ B> day, this will further increase the number of new "proprietary" programs that need to be developed.

Another disadvantage of the current update technique is that it requires a double download. Indeed, you must first download the download program module side, then the new main program and / or new data.

Yet another disadvantage of the current day-to-date technique is that it requires two reboots of the radio communication module, one internally beginning, while maintaining the reboot pin for example <B> at </ B> the mass) and the other externally <B> (at </ B> the end, keeping the reboot pin <B> at </ B> the power supply voltage). each time, the user is brought <B> to </ B> manipulate the reboot pin.

The invention particularly aims to overcome these disadvantages the state of the art.

More precisely, one of the objectives of the present invention is to provide a method for setting the main program (and / or associated data) up to one day per radio communication module, this method allowing the radiocommunication module to communicate with different types of equipment from bet <B> to </ B> day.

Another object of the invention is to provide such a method that can be implemented with several types of physical medium between the radiocommunication module and the equipment for setting <B> to </ B> day, without necessarily requiring any modification on both the radiocommunication module side and the update equipment side.

Another object of the invention is to provide such a method which does not require any manipulation of the re-ignition pin by the user. complementary objective of the invention is to provide such a method not requiring a double download, different objectives, as well as others which will appear later, are achieved according to the invention <B> to </ B> using a method of setting <B> to </ B> day of a main program executed a radiocommunication module, and / or data associated with said main program, said radio communication module communicating with a set of equipment from day to day. According to the invention, said method comprises the following successive steps: launching the execution, by said radiocommunication module, of a download program capable of communicating, according to a standard communication protocol, with a standard file transfer program, of the "data terminal" type, executed by said update equipment; sending by said standard file transfer program to said download program, according to said standard communication protocol, a new main program and / or new data storage by said download program, in a nonvolatile memory of said module of rad <B> 1 </ B> ocommuni cation, said new program <B> in </ B> main and / or said new data.

general principle of the invention is therefore to use, on the equipment update side, not a proprietary download program, but a standard file transfer program (or software) of the "type". data terminal ". The latter uses a standard communication protocol (and not a proprietary protocol).

In other words, programs of the "data terminal" type are used in an unusual way. Indeed, normally they are used two <B> to </ B> two to make the transfer of files between two machines, possibly by modems interposed (if the nature physical medium between machines running these programs requires it). The usual configuration is therefore the following: a first software "data terminal", executed by a first machine, communicates according to a standard communication protocol (for example via a serial link or an infrared link) with a second software "data terminal" ZD executed by a second machine. On the contrary, in the context of the present invention, there is no second machine running a second "data terminal" software, but a radiocommunication module executing a download program. In addition, whatever the physical communication medium, the present invention does not require the interposition of modems.

<B> There </ B> are several types of software "data terminals", such as but not limited to <B>: "Hyperterminal" software (trademark), designed for a computer type <B > "PC" </ B> with a "Windows" operating system (registered trademark) <B>; </ B> "Minicom" software (registered trademark), designed for computer type <B> "PC "</ B> with a" Linux "operating system (registered trademark) <B>; </ B>" Norton Commander "software (registered trademark), designed for a" PC "type computer "</ B> with a <B>" DOS "operating system </ B> (registered trademark) <B>; </ B> and so on. All these "data terminal" software can communicate according to one or more standard communication protocols, such as for example "X-MODEM", "Y-MODEM", "Z-MODEM", "XERMIT", "B" protocols. The use of such a standard file transfer program has several advantages: First, this standard program is compatible with all types of machines that can be used as update equipment. there are <B> already </ B> most machines (and especially microcomputers) that can be used as equipment for setting <B> to </ B> day. <B> it </ b> is designed to communicate on several types of physical media, <B> to </ B> generally know on a serial link or a t, infrared link (IRDA) Finally, it allows to obtain a better reliability in the unfolding operation update.

Advantageously, said download program is permanently stored in a non-volatile memory of said radiocommunication module. In this way, during an update, only the new main program and / or the new data are downloaded.

Preferably, said step of launching the execution, by the radiocommunication module, of the download program is performed when at least one of the following conditions is verified: A user has made a request to update B> at </ B> day via a man / machine interface associated, directly or indirectly, with said radio communication module <B>; </ B> a user has made a request to upgrade to <B> to </ B> day via man / machine interface associated with said updating equipment <B>; </ B> when powering up said radio communication module, said main program is unusable or non-existent.

<B> It </ B> is <B> to </ B> note that none of these variants requires the user to perform a restart ("internally") of the radiocommunication unit , keeping the reboot pin <B> at </ B> the mass. Indeed, the restart request is made either by the user, through <B> to </ B> a man / machine interface (first and second variants), or automatically (case of the third variant).

In a particular embodiment of the invention, said method <B>, </ B> further comprises the following step <B>: </ B> restarting said radiocommunication module with said new main program and / or said new data, after said storage step has been performed.

Such a restart, which is not systematic, is for example necessary in order to modify the executable version of the main program and / or associated data. Advantageously, said restarting step is started when at least one of the following conditions is verified: A user has made a restart request via a man / machine interface associated, directly or indirectly, with said radiofrequency module. ocommuni cation <B>;</B> a user has made a restart request via a man / machine interface associated with the update equipment <B>, </ B>
