  • Patent number: 6435640
    Abstract: An ink-jet printer includes a print head for printing a plurality of dots as an image by ejecting ink onto a paper sheet while the paper sheet is moving in a predetermined direction, and a print control section which stores a plurality of dot data assigned to the plurality of dots to designate tones thereof and which drives the print head according to the plurality of dot data. The print control section includes a correction section for correcting a tone of a target dot on the basis of a tone designated by dot data assigned to a dot adjacent to the target dot in the predetermined direction, in a manner so as to compensate for an ink flow due to inertia of semi-dried ink against movement of the paper sheet.

  • Patent number: 6437253
    Abstract: Connection terminals are provided on the upper surface of a film substrate. Each terminal comprises an electrodeconnecting part and a circular reinforcing part connected to the distal end of the electrode-connecting part. Connection electrodes are provided at a predetermined pitch P on the lower surface of a semiconductor chip. The side length L of the connection electrodes and the pitch P may be reduced to accomplish fine pitching. In this case, the width T of the connection terminal is decreased to some extent, in consideration of the bonding precision. In spite of this, the reinforcing part of each connection terminal hardly peels from the film substrate if it has a diameter that is equal to the length L of the side of the connection electrode.

  • Patent number: 6433986
    Abstract: An electrical board is provided which includes a switch pattern disposed in a device or apparatus such as a camera, for example, for receiving an operation input in response to an operation from the exterior, and a connection land portion formed to be continuous with the switch pattern. Further, an electrical board device is provided which uses first electrical board as a first electrical board, and which further includes a second electrical board having a different switch pattern formed in a position different from the switch pattern of the first electrical board and connected to the connection land portion of the first electrical board. Thus, devices having different external appearances can be attained even if the devices require the same specification, and the board space can be efficiently used and the board itself can be made small.

  • Patent number: 6425907
    Abstract: A hand-piece comprises an arm main body which moves relative to a grip section, and an arm section having a clamp member openable and closable with respect to a probe section. As a result of movement of the arm main body relative to the grip section, the clamp member is shifted between a closure position in which the clamp member cooperates with the probe section to hold living tissue between the clamp member and the probe section, and an open position in which the clamp member is separated from the probe section to release the living tissue.

  • Patent number: 6426835
    Abstract: In a confocal microscope, a beam of light from a light source is lead to a rotary disk by way of an optical lens and a half mirror, and made to strike specimen by way of an objective lens. The rotary disk has random pin hole pattern sections where pin holes are randomly bored through a light blocking mask, and an aperture section having an area k2 times greater than the area of the random pin hole pattern sections and allowing any light to pass therethrough. The beam of light reflected by the specimen is made to enter a CCD camera by way of the objective lens, the rotary disk, the half mirror and a condenser lens. The CCD camera is adapted to selectively pick up a composite image containing a confocal image component and a non-confocal image component of the specimen obtained through the random pin hole pattern sections and a conventional image of the specimen obtained through the aperture section.

  • Patent number: 6421544
    Abstract: A CPU built in a portable telephone (or a PHS terminal), receiving the control signal from a doorway base station, detects the present operation mode. If the present mode is the call enable mode, it is assumed that the user has entered a use inhibit area and the operation mode is changed to any one of the sleep #1 mode and sleep #2 mode previously specified, these two modes belonging to the call inhibit mode. The CPU then performs call incoming control or call originating control. In a case where the present mode is the call inhibit mode when the CPU receives the mode change signal, it is assumed that the user has left the use inhibit area and the operation mode is returned to the standby mode, the call enable mode, and call incoming control and call originating control in the present operation mode are performed.
