  • Publication number: 20140242975
    Abstract: A CPU is connected with an external RAM, so that the CPU is caused to function as a data exchange unit. When a second 3G circuit unit performs a communication process such as a process of framing a frame protocol, the CPU is caused to access the external RAM such that the data required for the communication process is provided to the second 3G circuit unit. Also, the CPU causes the data processed by the second 3G circuit unit to be stored in the external RAM. This suppresses an increase in circuit size of the second 3G circuit unit, achieving a base station device capable of communication with a communication terminal device with as little power consumption as possible.
