Nintendo Apply For Reducing Power Consumption Patent
Nintendo Co., Ltd. have applied for a new “Information processing” patent (特開2019-186642) in Japan. The patent aims to provide a method for reducing power consumption when repeatedly receiving packets (collection of data) from other devices (Nintendo Switch is used as an example in the images) by wireless communication. The information processing unit includes a receiving unit, a storage unit, and a predetermined processing unit, which utilises the mode transition in the information processing unit, thus power consumption can be reduced.
