  • Patent number: 10713196
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to accelerator circuitry useful in a network applications, such as cloud-based radio access networks. The accelerator circuitry includes interface circuitry that couples the accelerator circuitry to each of a plurality of processor circuits and to system memory circuitry. The accelerator circuitry also includes queue management circuitry, local storage circuitry, direct memory access (DMA) circuitry, and a plurality of accelerator circuits. In operation, the processor circuit communicates a message to the queue management circuitry. The message includes pointer data and prioritized data. The queue management circuitry enqueues the message in one of a plurality of queues. The DMA circuitry receives the message and locates a descriptor at the address designed by the pointer. The DMA circuitry retrieves input data, selects an accelerator circuit, and provides the input data to the selected accelerator circuit.

  • Patent number: 8472410
    Abstract: A baseband processing module includes an RX interface, a rake receiver combiner module, and may include additional components. The RX interface receives the baseband signals from an RF front end and creates baseband RX signal samples there from. The rake receiver combiner module includes control logic, an input buffer, a rake despreader module, and an output buffer. The rake despreader module is operable to despread the baseband RX signal samples in a time divided fashion to produce channel symbols including pilot channel symbols and physical channel symbols.

  • Patent number: 8437381
    Abstract: Certain aspects of a method and system for delay matching in a rake receiver for WCDMA closed loop modes are disclosed. Aspects of one method may include selecting a set of channel estimates from a plurality of channel estimates generated for a delay matched branch and/or a non-delay matched branch in a rake receiver. A plurality of weight factors may be generated based on the selected set of channel estimates. In the delay matched branch of the rake receiver, the application of the generated plurality of weight factors may be delayed by a particular time period. A delay associated with a control channel and/or a data channel may be compensated based on the delayed application of the generated plurality of weight factors.
