  • Patent number: 7825928
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus capable of efficient rendering is provided. In an image processing apparatus which renders, in a screen coordinate system, unit figures each constituting the surface of a three-dimensional object to be rendered, a rasterizing unit divides a rendering area corresponding to a screen into multiple unit areas, while a first unit figure is projected onto a screen coordinate system, and outputs the unit areas. A similar process is applied to second and subsequent unit figures so that the multiple unit areas constituting each unit figure are sequentially output. An area divider divides each of the unit areas sequentially output from the rasterizing unit into multiple subareas. An area discarder discards as necessary a subarea obtained by the division by the area divider according to a predetermined rule. An area writer re-merges subareas that survived the discarding process by the area discarder and writes merged areas obtained by re-merge in the memory.

  • Patent number: 7820006
    Abstract: A die pickup apparatus facilitates picking up a semiconductor die in a manner such that, in a state in which a semiconductor die to be picked up is suctioned by a collet, a frontal end of a cover plate is caused to extend from a contact surface, and the cover plate is caused to slide while pushing up a dicing sheet and the semiconductor die, and subsequently a rear end of the cover plate is caused to extend from the contact surface such that an upper surface of the cover plate is substantially in parallel with the contact surface, the cover plate is caused to slide while pushing the dicing sheet and the semiconductor die with the upper surface of the cover plate such that the suction opening is opened, and the dicing sheet is suctioned into the opened suction opening, thereby separating the dicing sheet.

  • Patent number: 7796609
    Abstract: A packet processing device that achieves stable operation by alleviating the workload of packet processing. A packet buffer checks a packet length flag and a processing time flag to observe the device's operating condition for a first connection. When neither of the two flags are on, the packet buffer keeps buffering first packets on the first connection. When either or both flags are on, the packet buffer changes focus to a second connection and begins buffering second packets on the second connection. A packet length monitor turns on the packet length flag if a new cumulative packet length is greater than a packet length threshold. A processing time monitor turns on the processing time flag if a new cumulative processing time estimate is greater than a predetermined processing time threshold.

  • Patent number: 7760667
    Abstract: A learning-target packet to be used for a path learning is selected from among a plurality of packets queued by a relay apparatus. A relationship between a transmission-source address and a first-arrival port for the selected learning-target packet is registered as learning information. A packet corresponding to the registered learning information is transferred to the first-arrival port pertaining to the learning information, and a packet that does not correspond to the learning information is transferred to all ports to which the packet is to be transferred.

  • Patent number: 7729250
    Abstract: It is an object to increase a processing-enabled user count and traffic size by avoiding frames from being discarded without any increase in buffer size within a bandwidth control device. A bandwidth control device includes a response measuring module measuring a size of a response frame and calculating, based on the measured size, a predictive traffic size as a size of the traffic of the response frame predicted to be received as a response to a request frame, and a bandwidth control module controlling a traffic rate of the response frame corresponding to the request frame by controlling a traffic rate of the request frame on the basis of the calculated predictive traffic size.
