  • Patent number: 9165636
    Abstract: A memory management unit manages a state of a memory which is to be accessed by bank interleaving. The memory includes p banks (where p is an integer of 2 or greater). The memory management unit includes a control unit that dynamically determines a bank to be accessed from among the p banks. When predetermined conditions for a reserving state of the memory are satisfied and there is any unused bank in the p banks, the control unit performs power consumption reduction to control the memory to cause power consumption of the unused bank(s) to be less than power consumption of other banks in the p banks except the unused bank(s).

  • Publication number: 20150253832
    Abstract: One data processor is provided with an interface for realizing connection with the other data processor. This interface is provided with a function for connecting the other data processor as a bus master to an internal bus of the one data processor, and the relevant other data processor is capable of directly operating peripheral functions that are memory mapped to the internal bus from an external side via the interface. Accordingly, the data processor can utilize the peripheral functions of the other data processor without interruption of the program being executed. In short, one data processor can use in common the peripheral resources of the other data processor.

  • Publication number: 20150029559
    Abstract: A printer and a control method of a printer can print barcodes appropriately according to a given print medium by means of a simple, easy operation. The printer stores a constant preset value relationally corresponding to each type of print medium. The printer also stores an added correction value that is optionally input for each specific type of print medium. The constant value and the added correction value are used to adjust the printed state of the barcode, e.g. to adjust bar widths within the barcode. The print control unit prints barcodes using the constant value stored in the printer storage unit adjusted with the added correction value.
