  • Patent number: 9869977
    Abstract: A radio-controlled timepiece is shown including the following. A timekeeping unit keeps date and time. A date/time obtaining unit obtains date/time information from outside to correct the date and time of the timekeeping unit. A preliminary notice information obtaining unit obtains from outside preliminary notice information regarding whether leap second adjustment in which a leap second is inserted or deleted is executed. A date/time obtaining necessity setting unit sets whether the date/time information needs to be obtained based on history of obtaining the date/time information. The date/time obtaining necessity setting unit sets that the date/time information needs to be obtained when the preliminary notice information is not obtained by the adjustment possible date/time or the leap second adjustment is executed at the adjustment possible date/time, and does not change setting when the preliminary notice information is obtained and the leap second adjustment is not executed.

  • Patent number: 9843780
    Abstract: A projector includes alight source unit including a light source, a luminescent wheel having light source segments receiving light from the light source to emit different wavelength ranges of light, a color wheel separate from the luminescent wheel that has a first transmission area transmitting light, in visible light, existing in a certain range of wavelengths and a second transmission area transmitting light existing in a range of wavelengths broader than that of the light transmitted through the first transmission area and on to which the different wavelength ranges of light from the luminescent wheel are shone, and a control module controlling not only the luminescent wheel and the color wheel so that they are synchronized with each other but also the light source so that the light emitted from the light source is sequentially shone on to the light source segments.

  • Patent number: 9843387
    Abstract: When necessary process times in a reception apparatus for a determination on a change area, a determination on the color of the change area, and a decoding of bit data stream exceed a predetermined time from a frame acquiring timing, and a process delay would occur, an image generator acquires a frame. In addition, a decoder temporarily stores the frame in a memory, and thereafter at a predetermined timing performs the determination on the change area, the determination on the color of the change area, and the decoding of the bit data stream.

  • Patent number: 9837700
    Abstract: An antenna device of the present invention includes, in one aspect: a patch antenna having a resonant frequency at a first frequency; and a loop antenna having a resonant frequency at a second frequency that is different from the first frequency. A loop length of the loop antenna is such that standing waves are generated in the loop antenna when the loop antenna receives radio waves of the first frequency, and the patch antenna is disposed so as to magnetically couple with the loop antenna.
