  • Patent number: 6657977
    Abstract: A radio (10) with a burst event execution and time synchronization apparatus (16) executes instructions during and after performing time synchronization between a mobile unit and a base station. Both base station (12) and mobile radio (10) have internal timer units (26, 16). Mobile radio (10) timing unit (16) is reset during synchronization between the mobile radio (10) and the base station (12). The control unit (18) writes instructions I(i) including their execution times T(i) to a memory bank (42) within the mobile radio (10). Execution logic (32) within mobile radio (10) executes instruction operands O(i) when execution time T(i) is equal or smaller then a timing count signal received from the timer unit (16). When a time synchronization reset causes the radio (10) time count to jump past queued instructions they can be executed immediately in a burst or delayed until the next communication frame.
