Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR INTERPROCESSOR COMMUNICATION AND PERIPHERAL SHARING
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET DISPOSITIF DE COMMUNICATION ENTRE PROCESSEURS ET DE PARTAGE DE PÉRIPHÉRIQUES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A resource sharing system is provided which makes a resource connected to one processor available to a second processor. A communications protocol is provided which consists of a first and second peer interprocessor communications protocols running on the first and second processors. A physical layer interconnection between the first processor and the second processor is also provided. There is a first application layer entity on the first processor and a corresponding second application layer entity on the second processor, the first application layer entity and the second application layer entity together being adapted to arbitrate access to the resource between the first processor and the second processor using the first interprocessor communications protocol, the physical layer interconnection and the second intercommunications protocol to provide a communication channel between the first application layer entity and the second application layer entity.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un système de partage de ressources qui rend disponible pour un second processeur une ressource connectée à premier processeur. L'invention concerne également un protocole de communication constitué de deux protocoles pairs de communication interprocesseur. L'invention concerne enfin une interconnexion par couche physique entre le premier processeur et le second processeur. A cet effet, il existe une première entité couche d'application sur le premier processeur et une seconde entité couche d'application sur le second processeur, les deux entités couche d'application étant ensemble conçues pour arbitrer les accès à la ressource entre les deux processeurs grâce au premier protocole de communications interprocesseur, grâce à l'interconnexion par couche physique, et grâce au second protocole de communications interprocesseur, de façon à constituer un canal de communication entre les deux entités couche d'application.
