Title
(EN) INTERRUPT RESPONSE CONTROL APPARATUS AND METHOD THEREFOR
(FR) APPAREIL DE COMMANDE DE RÉPONSE À UNE INTERRUPTION ET PROCÉDÉ CORRESPONDANT
Abstract
(EN)
An interrupt response control apparatus (200) comprises an input (202) for receiving an interrupt request. A response monitoring module (222) is arranged to detect performance of a first function in response to the interrupt request. A timer (204) is used to determine whether a period of time has elapsed, and if the interrupt request has not been serviced by the first function within the elapsed period of time, a function initiation module (208) initiates a second function in response to failure to provide the first function within the elapsed period of time.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un appareil (200) de commande de réponse à une interruption (200), comportant une entrée (202) destinée à recevoir une demande d'interruption. Un module de contrôle de réponse (222) est conçu pour détecter la mise en œuvre d'une première fonction en réponse à la demande d'interruption. Un temporisateur (204) est utilisé pour déterminer si une durée s'est écoulée, et, si la demande d'interruption n'a pas été traitée par la première fonction au cours de la durée écoulée, un module de déclenchement de fonction (208) déclenche une seconde fonction en réponse à la défaillance pour mettre en œuvre la première fonction au cours de la durée écoulée.
