Title: DYNAMIC CONTROL OF SEARCH DURATION IN A WIRELESS COMMUNICATION DEVICE
Abstract:
Microprocessor resource utilization by a searching process is controlled by determining a search window size, accessing a lookup table to determine an integration interval and a number of non-coherent passes, and commanding a searching process to execute a multipath search according to these parameters. The lookup table comprises a plurality of integration intervals and corresponding number of non-coherent passes indexed according to search window such that an execution duration of the search process remains nominally constant over a variety of search window sizes.
