  • Patent number: 10802712
    Abstract: To avoid the situation that only specific data in date corresponding to a plurality of data types occupies a temporary storing part. An interface control part 26 of a data processing processor 10 sets data type information according to a data type of data which is requested to read. A memory controller 46 of an auxiliary storage device 40 controls the auxiliary storage device 40 to determine the data type requested based on the data type information contained in a read command from the data processing processor 10 and select a temporary storing region corresponding to the data type.

  • Patent number: 10794564
    Abstract: A back door handle device is provided above a license plate of a back door of a vehicle and serves as both a license lamp and a handle switch. The back door handle device includes a light emitting element, a switch that outputs a signal for unlocking or locking the back door, a housing that houses the light emitting element and the switch, and an outer cover that covers the housing and includes an integrally molded article. The integrally molded article includes a transparent portion formed of a material that transmits light emitted from the light emitting element, and an elastic portion covering an outer side of the transparent portion. The transparent portion includes a lens portion that extracts light emitted from the light emitting element. The elastic portion includes a switch cover portion that is applied with a pushing force from an outside for outputting the signal.

  • Patent number: 8733991
    Abstract: A vehicle lamp is formed using a light guide body. Thus light with an excellent aesthetic quality can be emitted without increasing the number of components. The structure has a light guide part (6a) formed on a light guide member (6). The light guide part (6a) emits light in an elongated shape by irradiating a first light-emitting diode (9) provided on one end of the light guide part (6a) in the longitudinal direction. A projecting part (6g) projects reward on the rear face of the light guide part (6a), which is the light-emitting face. A light emission suppressing part (6h) is provided on the projection end face of the projecting part (6g) and has a metal film (6f) formed by vapor deposition.

  • Patent number: 7085371
    Abstract: A push-button signal receiving device and a gain control method whereby error in validity determination of a received signal that accompanies the insertion of an AGC circuit can be prevented. An input bush-button signal is amplified by amplifying circuit and separated into signals of low- and high-frequency bands by first and second band-pass filters, respectively. Dialed number identifying circuit detects the frequencies of the separated signals to identify the dialed number, determines validity of the received push-button signal, and outputs the identified dialed number in accordance with the result of validity determination. Level detecting circuit detects the level of the output signal from the amplifying circuit. Gain control circuit controls the amplification gain of the amplifying circuit in accordance with the detected signal level, and holds the value of the amplification gain of the amplifying circuit while the received push-button signal is judged valid by the dialed number identifying circuit.
