Title: METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR SCHEDULING REQUESTS IN A PORTABLE COMPUTING DEVICE
Abstract:
A method and system for managing requests among resources within a portable computing device include a scheduler receiving data from a client for scheduling a plurality of requests. Each request identifies at least one resource and a requested deadline. Next, data from the client is stored by the scheduler in a database. The scheduler then determines times and a sequence for processing the requests based on requested deadlines in the requests and based on current states of resources within the portable computing device. The scheduler then communicates the requests to the resources at the determined times and according to the determined sequence. The scheduler, at its discretion, may schedule a request after its requested deadline in response to receiving a new request command from a client. The scheduler may allow a sleep set corresponding to a sleep processor state to power off a processor.
