  • Patent number: 7519820
    Abstract: An image having no secrecy is printed on a non-secret information display area of an original paper, whereas an image having secrecy, which should be originally printed, is not printed on a secret image display area. When the original paper is copied on a printing paper, an image read from the original paper is printed on a secret image display area, whereas a secret image is printed on a non-secret information display area only when an access operation to the secret image is authenticated.

  • Patent number: 7474427
    Abstract: An UI section accepts operation of a user. A setting selection section judges as to whether this user operation instructs a process operation executed in accordance with setting information of an IC chip attached to an original document, or another process operation executed in accordance with setting information entered by the user. In the former case, an operation control section controls a data reading section so as to read out the setting information from the IC chip attached to the original document, and also, controls a print control section to perform printing/FAX transforming operations in accordance with this read setting information. In the latter case, an operation control section controls a data writing section in order to write the setting information entered by the user into the IC chip.

  • Publication number: 20090002731
    Abstract: Information indicating an area of an image and information indicating attributes of the image have been stored in an IC chip attached to an original paper. When a copying apparatus performs a character recognition process operation with respect to an image displayed on the original paper, the copying apparatus reads the information related to the area of the image and the information related to the attribute of this area from the IC chip attached to this original paper. Then the copying apparatus separates an area where a character is displayed therefrom. The copying apparatus executes the character recognition process operation with respect to the image of the separated area.

  • Publication number: 20040069829
    Abstract: A printing unit of a copying apparatus forms an image on a printing paper by way of an electrophotographing system in response to an operation executed with respect to a UI apparatus. A postprocessing unit of the copying apparatus staples a staple needle holding an IC chip to the printing paper on which the image is formed. Then, the postprocessing unit writes data input from the UI apparatus into the IC chip held by the staple needle.

  • Publication number: 20040046999
    Abstract: When two or more sheets of images, which have been read from two or more sheets of originals are printed on a single sheet of first printing paper, original information related to the originals is stored into an IC chip attached to the first printing paper. Thereafter, when a user desires to reproduce the originals by using this first printing paper, the original information stored in the IC chip is read therefrom. Based on the read original information, the images read from the originals are printed respectively in the same sizes as those of the respective originals.

  • Publication number: 20040046985
    Abstract: An UI section receives a printing parameter set by a user. A data reading section reads a printing parameter from an original paper. An image reading section reads an image from the original paper. When an IC chip has been attached to the original paper, a parameter selecting section selects a printing parameter thereof, whereas in other cases, the parameter selecting section selects a printing parameter, which is set by the user. An image processing section and a printing control section execute an image processing operation and a printing operation in accordance with the selected printing parameter.

  • Patent number: 6498997
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for producing a solid actuator employing measurement of the electric characteristic of the actuator and effecting polarization during the wire bonding process. After a wire has been bonded to pads formed on a substrate, the conduction of the wire is tested. Then, whether or not a capacitance between the pads has a preselected value is determined. Subsequently, whether or not a characteristic impedance between the pads has a preselected value is determined. Thereafter, whether or not any crack is present in the surfaces of electrodes electrically connected to the pads is determined. This is followed by the polarization of the substrate. Electrical characteristics are tested after each wire is bonded. There is also provided a storage medium storing a program for controlling the above apparatus.

  • Patent number: 5331213
    Abstract: An undershoot eliminating circuit is provided between a pulse transformer of a pulse transmitter coupled to a transmission line and a pulse transformer driving circuit for driving the pulse transformer. The pulse transformer driving circuit has an impedance high enough to cause the pulse transmitter to be substantially isolated from the transmission line. The undershoot eliminating circuit includes a capacitor, and a switching unit. The switching unit is connected to the capacitor, and has the function of selectively connecting the capacitor to the pulse transformer driving circuit and the pulse transformer in parallel on the basis of a voltage based on a pulse wave generated by the pulse transformer driving circuit and applied across the switching unit.
