2.1. Digital TV Common functions

2.1.1. Math functions

Provide some commonly-used math functions, usually required in order to estimate signal strength and signal to noise measurements in dB.

unsigned int intlog2(u32 value)

computes log2 of a value; the result is shifted left by 24 bits

Parameters

u32 value

The value (must be != 0)

Description

to use rational values you can use the following method:

intlog2(value) = intlog2(value * 2^x) - x * 2^24

Some usecase examples:

intlog2(8) will give 3 << 24 = 3 * 2^24

intlog2(9) will give 3 << 24 + … = 3.16… * 2^24

intlog2(1.5) = intlog2(3) - 2^24 = 0.584… * 2^24

Return

log2(value) * 2^24

unsigned int intlog10(u32 value)

computes log10 of a value; the result is shifted left by 24 bits

Parameters

u32 value

The value (must be != 0)

Description

to use rational values you can use the following method:

intlog10(value) = intlog10(value * 10^x) - x * 2^24

An usecase example:

intlog10(1000) will give 3 << 24 = 3 * 2^24

due to the implementation intlog10(1000) might be not exactly 3 * 2^24

look at intlog2 for similar examples

Return

log10(value) * 2^24

Note

In the past, DVB modules (mainly, frontends) were bound via dvb_attach() macro, with does an ugly hack, using I2C low level functions. Such usage is deprecated and will be removed soon. Instead, use this routine.

Note

In the past, DVB modules (mainly, frontends) were bound via dvb_attach() macro, with does an ugly hack, using I2C low level functions. Such usage is deprecated and will be removed soon. Instead, you should use dvb_module_probe().

detaches a DVB frontend loaded via dvb_attach()

Parameters

FUNC

attach function

Description

Decrements usage count for a function previously called via dvb_attach().

2.1.3. Digital TV Ring buffer

Those routines implement ring buffers used to handle digital TV data and copy it from/to userspace.

Note

  1. For performance reasons read and write routines don’t check buffer sizes and/or number of bytes free/available. This has to be done before these routines are called. For example:

/* write @buflen: bytes */
free = dvb_ringbuffer_free(rbuf);
if (free >= buflen)
        count = dvb_ringbuffer_write(rbuf, buffer, buflen);
else
        /* do something */

/* read min. 1000, max. @bufsize: bytes */
avail = dvb_ringbuffer_avail(rbuf);
if (avail >= 1000)
        count = dvb_ringbuffer_read(rbuf, buffer, min(avail, bufsize));
else
        /* do something */
  1. If there is exactly one reader and one writer, there is no need to lock read or write operations. Two or more readers must be locked against each other. Flushing the buffer counts as a read operation. Resetting the buffer counts as a read and write operation. Two or more writers must be locked against each other.
