  • Patent number: 6833952
    Abstract: A stereoscopic display apparatus 20 is employed in combination with an image transmission section 10. A case 1 includes a half-mirror 3, a visual field lens 4 and polarizers 22L, 22R therein, and an observation port 23 with a hood is defined in the case 1. A band 25 to be worn on a viewer's head is disposed in the exterior of the case 1. Both of the polarizers 22L and 22R are so designed as to display the stereoscopic images for the right and left eyes on the basis of data transmitted from the image transmission section 10, respectively, and the image lights are guided to the viewer's eyes through the half-mirror 3 and the visual field lens 4. The stereoscopic display apparatus 20 is of the head mount type that guides the images for the right and left eyes projected onto one display screen which is formed of the half-mirror 3 to the right and left eyes.

  • Patent number: 6832042
    Abstract: An encoding/decoding system in an optical disk storage device for performing compact disc/digital video disk (CD/DVD) encoding/decoding of data. The encoding/decoding system includes address mappers for C1, C2, CD P/Q, and DVD inner/outer codes respectively and a shareable Reel-Solomon (RS) encoder/decoder. The shareable RS encoder/decoder is capable of selectively being coupled to either one of the address mappers. When the encoding/decoding system is encoding, the shareable RS encoder/decoder employs a generation polynomial of RS code to generate a parity code of 2T symbols and output a codeword of N symbols, wherein the values of N and 2T are associated with the selected address mapper.

  • Patent number: 6827061
    Abstract: This invention relates to a method in connection with engine control, wherein a combustion feedback signal is derived by measuring one or more combustion related parameters during a chosen time period of a first combustion cycle, for control of a possible fault, wherein at least one reference feature for said parameters has been determined previously, and comparing said measured combustion feed back signal with said reference feature for automatic adaptation of at least one combustion related variable during a forthcoming combustion cycle wherein at least one reference features for each one of at least two different fault situations having been determined previously, and that a diagnosis 3 of said first combustion cycle is performed on the basis of said combustion feedback signal being processed and compared (T1-Tn) with each one of said reference features, the result of which is analysed by a decision logic, whereafter a diagnosis (D) is established by means of which one or more variables in a forthcoming co

  • Patent number: 6821471
    Abstract: A method for the manufacturing of a plate (2) of metal or of a ceramic material, the plate having one or more fields (3) which occupy the major part of the surface of the plate and which on at least one side of the plate is high relief patterned such that the plate on said at least one side within the area of said field or fields has reliefs with high projections and deep valleys (9) or recesses (8) alternatingly, and between the sides a thin web (10), said high relief patterned field or fields being at least partly bordered by broad edge portions (4) which have a thickness larger than the mean thickness of the plate within the region of said high relief patterned field or fields. In a preparatory step, an intermediate product (1) is manufactured. This intermediate product includes at least a first portion (11) which shall form said high relief patterned field(s), which however is/are not yet high relief patterned but contain(s) an adequate quantity of material.

  • Patent number: 6819349
    Abstract: According to the present invention, there is provided a method for forming a mark having superior conspicuity, wherein plural plating layers each having a different hue are formed on a base, a portion of the upper plating layer is removed by laser marking so as to reveal the color of the lower plating layer, and thereby the color difference between a mark and the upper plating layer is made clear. Further, after the upper plating layer is removed by laser marking, another plating layer may be applied to a mark portion to make the mark conspicuous. Furthermore, a concave portion or concavo-convex portions may be provided on the surface of the plating layers, and the concave portion or concavo-convex portions may be colored with ink or paint. With these methods, it is possible to easily form a colored mark having superior conspicuity, corrosion resistance, adhesion, abrasion resistance and to produce a product bearing such a mark.

  • Patent number: 6809322
    Abstract: The invention provides for a scanning electron or ion beam instrument capable of transferring the beam from a high vacuum chamber (8) into a high pressure chamber (5) via aperture (1) and aperture (2). The beam is deflected and scanned by coils (3) generally positioned between apertures (1) and (2). The amplitude of deflection of the beam over a specimen placed inside chamber (5) is substantially larger than the diameter of aperture (1). Leaking gas through aperture (1) is removed via port (7) by appropriate pumping apparatus. The size of aperture (1) is such that the pressure in chamber (6) combined with the supersonic jet and shock waves naturally forming therein do not result in catastrophic electron beam loss in chamber (6). The addition of appropriate detection means result in an instrument characterised by superior performance over prior art by way of better field of view at low magnification, better vacuum system and improved detection and imaging capabilities.

  • Patent number: 6801066
    Abstract: An apparatus for generating quadrature phase signals in a half-rate data recovery circuit, which is adapted to generate a first and a second clock signals having the same frequency and being 90 degrees out of phase with each other. The apparatus for generating quadrature phase signals mainly comprises a base selector, a first phase interpolator and a second phase interpolator. The base selector generates, based on a region control signal, a pair of phase region boundaries for the first clock signal as well as a pair of phase region boundaries for the second clock signal by using a plurality of reference clock signals. The first and second phase interpolators perform, based on a position control signal, weighted average processes for the two pairs of phase region boundaries, respectively, to thereby obtain the first and the second clock signals.
