Software architecture of the radio layer processor

In the above, it described the overall software architecture and operating environment of the terminal device and the multi-radio interface for the purpose of the present invention.

Hereinafter, the case where the above-described radio applications operating in the radio processor layer, and provides a more detailed description about the operation structure.

When the radio application package is downloaded, the user-defined function block library code and radio to be operated from the radio layer processor is mounted so that it can be accessed from the radio processor layer.

Hereinafter, the code for configuring the elements to be operated on the radio layer processor, comprising a user-defined function code block code described above; is defined as (configuration code or, abbreviated as 'configcode'). configcode may include a user-defined function library radio with only the included or a user-defined function block code, a block code, depending on the situation. Configcode executes code (executable code) or the intermediate representation: can take the (IR Intermediate Representation) form.

In addition, in the following, it defines a radio physical platform as a target radio platform and define the concept of shadow radio platform (Shadow Radio Platform) virtually as mediator having a hardware abstraction for the target radio platform. Shadow is a radio platform can be to the developer of the application means that virtual radio radio platform operating environment of the radio applications. For example, the shadow of the radio radio platform application may be identical to the target radio platform, it is also possible to target different from the radio platform. If the shadow radio platform be different from the target radio platform, since the shadow radio platform concept that corresponds to the actual target radio platform is to be understood that the hardware-independent virtual device, the shadow radio platform radio Virtual Machine (RVM: Radio Virtual Machine ) it can be.

To the shadow radio platform different from the target radio platform, when the shadow radio platform that radio virtual machine, radio virtual machine is to perform the virtualization function that enables the above-mentioned configcode to operate at a real target radio platform, implement triangulation the may be end (back-end) compiler - configcode the target of JIT compiled into executable code of the radio platform (just-in-time) or AOT (ahead-of-time) to provide a way back.

12 is a block diagram illustrating the software architecture of a radio processor layer according to an embodiment of the present invention.

Radio processor software architecture for the radio processor, and layers illustrated in Fig. 12 provides for communication ability (communication capabilities) to the mobile device may be configured to include the following components:

Radio OS

Radio processor running part of the radio control framework (for radio control framework is configured as a separate radio processor and an application execution section executing section), radio control framework full (when radio control framework is operative only on radio processor)

- if the case radio control framework is operative only in the radio processor, the communication services layer (for convenience, in Figure 4 the communication service tier been shown to operate on a radio processor, a radio control framework is operating in both the radio processor and an application processor , a communication service tier is also operating on the application processor)

- Shadow radio platform (Shadow Radio Platform) radio virtual machine; if (RVM Radio Virtual Machine), Radio virtual machine implementation (implementation)

- If the Shadow radio platform radio native implementation of one virtual machine libraries Radio (Radio Lib) (native implementation)

- the constituent codes of the radio application (RA) (configuration code; configcodes) - configuration code, executable code, or a platform-independent intermediate representation of the target radio platform may be provided with (IR intermediate Representation) form.

If the shadow radio platform radio virtual machine work, Configcode is interpreted (interpreted) by the radio virtual machine, the shadow radio platform when the target radio platform, Configcode corresponds to executable code that may be executed directly from the target radio platform .

RCF and their interfaces, which are (MUltiRadio Interface) MURI and (Unified Application Radio Interfaces) URAI are as described above.

Shadow radio platform can be a radio or a target virtual machine radio platform.

If the radio shadow if the platform is the same as the target platform, Radio, front-end compiler (Front-End Compiler) that will generate the executable code for the target platform configcodes is equivalent to the executable code for that particular platform.

Radio virtual machine is abstracted machines that can run configcodes, is independent of any hardware. Configcode is running on the target platform via a specific radio virtual machine. Accordingly, the radio virtual machine JIT (just-in-time) or AOT (aheadof-time) back to provide a method for compiling configcodes into executable code comprises an end (back-end) compiler.

Radio library is made up of the functional block representing the computation based (computational basis). Radio applications can be represented as a set of such interconnected functional blocks. Functional block diagram of a radio library are expressed as a normalized language (normative language). Kyuhyun native radio library provides the executable code of the function block library for the target platform. Radio Library can be extended.

Operating structure of the integrated radio applications

Integrated operating structure of the radio applications can be expressed in two different cases. The first is when the radio application configcodes the executable code on the target platform (illustrated by the FIG. 13), the second radio application configcodes back from a given mobile device, the intermediate representation being compiled end: the (IR Intermediate Representation) code If (an illustration through 14) a.

Figure 13 and Figure 14 is a hierarchical structural view for explaining a different example of the operation structure of the integrated radio applications in accordance with one embodiment of the present invention.

Referring to Figure 13, the radio library and user defined function blocks required to perform a given radio application (s); it (UDFB User Defined Function Block) is already included in the executable configcodes of radio applications.

On the other hand, referring to Figure 14, the user function block to the back by the radio virtual machine shown in Figure 12 is included in the radio configcodes applications needed to perform (s) a given radio applications - to be compiled end. In this case, because the radio applications configcodes be included in the radio library should be a native implementation of the radio library separately within a given mobile device. In general, the native implementation of a radio libraries, is provided by the core chip vendors radio standard library function blocks implemented on the processor core: because it includes (SFB Standard Function Block).

Basically, 13, and radio library (native implementation) that can be implemented in only shown at 14 without the use of a hardware accelerator (s) is to combine the speed-up and accelerator (s) and the program code of the standard function block it is necessary to create other standard function blocks.

If either the radio application configcodes executable code, whether intermediate representation code which INC, standard function blocks are supported by the hardware logic, the accelerator (s) only through the radio hardware abstraction layer (HAL) shown in both Figure 13 and Figure 14 . This dedicated hardware logic accelerator corresponding to each time it is called by the standard function blocks are radio application code given implemented by hardware logic, dedicated, radio applications configcodes is the span or executable code, whether intermediate representation code, through the radio HAL meant to be implemented directly on (s). As will be described later, the radio HAL also includes a user-defined function for the hardware abstraction interface ready for the library block (s).

Standard functional blocks that any function that must be very efficiently implemented using a special-purpose accelerator in many of the common functional blocks that are used in radio applications (e.g., FFT (Fast Fourier Transform)) and / or a given radio platform block ( for example, it can be a turbo coder).

On the other hand, "the user set of functional blocks (UDFB set)" shown in Figure 14 includes all that is used by a given radio application (s), the user function block. Any standard function block any appropriate standard function block (s) to it - that is, the modification of a standard functional block to be replaced and / or extended version-point that modified by being replaced with and / or extensible important. Accordingly, any user function blocks can be a good candidate for an extension of the standard function blocks, which means that they can be added as a standard function blocks later. In such a case, after the user function blocks are added as a standard function block it will be defined as the normal standard function blocks. "User function block sets (UDFB set) 'is the basic of the radio platform vendors instead of the provider because they can be provided by (ie, 3rd party), radio control framework to all users functional blocks of the events and / or command of the radio applications may be defined in order to be able to perform the control, in order of 'start', 'stop', 'pause', 'get port', and user functional block that corresponds to a standard set of control interfaces, such as a 'initialize'. For this purpose, ETSI RRS will be properly defined by the standards set by controlling the control interface standard set for each functional block are implemented user interface. Standard set of rules of the control interface for the user function block (s) will be given as Protocol / Interface TS document. 5 and radio platform shown in Figure 6 will generally comprise in order to implement the core (s) and dedicated hardware accelerator (s) for each functional block.

As shown in Figure 14, the integrated structure of a radio operating application includes the following components.

- radio application standard function block (s) and the user-defined function block given radio application package (s); comprises in correspondence with the information of the meta data of (RAP Radio Application Package).

- The radio library (native implementation), the standard function blocks are implemented by using dedicated hardware logic that includes a Configcodes of standard function blocks are executing on the other hand, the core processor (s) supported by the radio HAL.

- The users function block set "is generally provided by the radio application provider (provider), it comprises all used at a given radio application package the user function block. User function block is included with the metadata (metadata) and a radio controller, a radio code application package. Typically, a user function block because the modified and / or extended version of the standard function blocks, user function blocks can have a dependency for the standard function block library.

- Radio The HAL abstracts radio platform. Radio HAL is to be noted that to be directly executed on a dedicated hardware accelerator (s) is a standard function blocks corresponding to be implemented using a hardware accelerator (hardware accelerator) of only.

Radio is a radio platform driver OS to recognize the radio platform.

- radio platform can be configured to generally include all of the core (s) and dedicated hardware accelerator (s).

15 is a conceptual diagram for explaining the function block library implementation of the radio platform, in accordance with an embodiment of the present invention. Referring to Figure 15, the core (s) and function block implementation of a given radio platform made up of various types of peripheral devices and the like.

In the embodiment illustrated in Figure 15, the number of standard functional blocks implemented on the processor core is M, the number of the standard function block implemented on a dedicated hardware accelerator logic is N. Standard functional blocks, implemented using dedicated hardware logic accelerator as mentioned above (e. G., FFT, turbo decoder, MIMO decoder, etc.) are directly be implemented for high performance and low power consumption on a dedicated hardware logic accelerator corresponding is. This standard function blocks are supported by the radio HAL for execution on a dedicated accelerator. This means that each of the standard function block executed on only the accelerator are executed directly after the HAL on a dedicated radio accelerator (s) corresponding to it is called in radio applications. Similarly, for example, when it is called for each standard function blocks are radio applications running on the core processor, such as the bit-reverse, multiply and accumulation, is performed on a given core (e.g., ARM with Neon).

As a result, you need to run code on the radio processors are composed of two parts: One part of the code is a run of standard function blocks that are performed on a programmable core (s), the other parts are the radio HAL code for the standard function blocks are performed on only the accelerator.

This can be summarized as follows: {C: execution codes on the radio processor necessary for the implementation of standard functional blocks} standard function blocks that are performed on the accelerator: = {A: run for standard function blocks are performed on the programmable core codes} + {B HAL code for the radio}. That is, a C = A + B of the partition A and B may be determined by each vendor.

It also suggests the following: {Standard function blocks} = a union of {the standard function block implemented on a dedicated hardware accelerator} {standard function blocks implemented on the core processor,} and, as {private {standard function blocks implemented on a core processor} the intersection of the standard function block is implemented in hardware accelerator (hardware accelerator)} is the empty set.

On the other hand, as noted above, the user-defined function block is to be described using a standard interface. As shown in Figure 15, the standard interface for the custom function block, and one or both of standard function block (s) to be implemented on a standard function block (s) and a dedicated hardware accelerator (hardware accelerator) that are implemented on the core processor, it should be noted as to be associated with.

Why classified as a standard interface the two groups (group corresponding to a standard function block (s) to be performed on a standard function block (s) groups, and dedicated hardware accelerator (hardware accelerator) that corresponds to that carried out on other words, the core processor) is because each category has its advantages and disadvantages. The latter is therefore typically implemented in dedicated hardware logic, it is advantageous in power consumption, operation speed is required, and possibly cost-effectiveness. On the other hand, the former is generally advantageous in flexibility (flexibility) because it is performed on a microprocessor. In terms of performance until the have a competitive compared to the hardware devices of the programmable devices only at the initial stage it is expected that a dedicated hardware accelerator, to be used to relatively more widely. In the long run the more the more evolution of semiconductor technology, the core-dependent (core-dependent) standard function blocks will become progressively more dominant as compared to the core and peripheral dependent (core and peripheral dependent) standard function blocks, instruction set architecture (ISA: Instruction Set architecture) can be implemented in the acceleration of level.

granularity of the standard function blocks illustrated in the present specification are only intended to illustrate the purpose of illustration.

Accordingly, the radio application package is a custom function block code 511 and the radio controller code comprises a 512 by default, and pipeline configuration metadata for the distribution of radio applications; additional (pipeline configuration meta-data 513) It can comprise.

Radio controller code is determined if included in a radio application package in the form of executable code of one of the radio processor and an application processor according to the above described software architecture processor environment. That is, when the radio control framework separated by the application processor running portion and the radio processor executable portion is radio controller code may consist of code that is executed by the application processor, if radio control framework is executed only in the radio processor, the radio the controller code may be configured as a code executed in the radio processor. On the other hand, user-defined function block code, may be included in either case, the radio application package as code running on the radio processor as viable executable code, source code, the form of a code intermediate representation from the radio processor, as described above.

As the pipeline (pipeline) is meant a transmission, or a radio controller, a user-defined function blocks and in combination with the connection of a standard function block of the radio applications related to implement the receive function of radio applications, by a pipeline configuration metadata It can be defined.

Further, the standard function block code to the core, if made up of running executable code form by the application package 510 of the radio processor may further include a radio library 514 of the executable code form (executed in the radio processor core executable code) may be configured are the same as previously described.

Radio application package 510 is downloaded to the OS of the application processor layer from the server 530, a user-defined function block code 512 and the radio library 514 by referring to the pipeline configuration of metadata 513 from the application processor through a process which is loaded with a radio processor it may be loaded on a radio processor OS of the radio layer.
