  • Patent number: 10668696
    Abstract: The present invention provides a bonding method (S1) which is capable of achieving a high adhesive force without carrying out any special treatment on the second member (14), even in a case where the first member (11) has a surface on which a gold thin film (12) is formed. The first member (11) is made of a material other than gold and has a surface on which the gold thin film (12) is formed. The bonding method (S1) includes the steps of: (S11) irradiating, with laser light, at least part of a specific region (12a) of the surface of the first member (11), so that a base of the thin film (12) is exposed in the at least part of the specific region (12a); and (S12) bonding the second member (14) to the specific region (12a) by use of an adhesive (13).

  • Patent number: 7840957
    Abstract: A computer program and apparatus that minimize the time required to update installed programs to a new version. Upon receipt of a request for updating old version software to a new version, a version information collector first obtains version information describing specified new version software. Then a processing time calculator calculates update processing times for a full update process, a partial update process, and a copy & update process, based on the obtained version information about the new version software, as well as based on version information describing the old version software. A process selector compares the calculated update processing times and selects the fastest update process. Then an updating unit executes the selected fastest update process to update the old version software to the new version software.
