Title: Frame timing controller and frame timing control method for triggering at least receiver in mobile station to start receiving transmitted information of base station by referring to at least frame pointer

Abstract: A frame timing controller includes a timer, a frame timing control unit, and a frame pointer processing circuit. The timer is arranged to generate a timer value according to a first clock signal with a first clock frequency. The frame timing control unit is for triggering at least a receiver to start receiving transmitted information of a base station according to at least a frame pointer and the timer value, wherein the receiver processes an input signal to generate first samples at a first sampling rate corresponding to a sampling clock frequency and processes the first samples to generate an output signal including second samples at a second sampling rate corresponding to a second clock frequency of a second clock signal different from the sampling clock frequency. The frame pointer processing circuit is for generating and updating the frame pointer according to the output signal of the receiver.
