Abstract: A signal transmission and reception element transmits and receives a differential signal. Two transmission lines transmit the differential signal between the signal transmission and reception element and a connector. The signal transmission and reception element is connected to an external apparatus with the connector interposed therebetween. A noise generation source generates noise in a wireless band, which is coupled to the transmission lines. An antenna has a gain in a frequency band of the noise which is generated in the noise generation source. A wireless signal processing circuit processes a signal received by the antenna. An absorption-type filter that is mounted on the transmission lines absorbs noise mixed in the transmission lines.
