  • Publication number: 20130301829
    Abstract: An electronic key registration system includes a controller of a communication subject, an initial electronic key that communicates with the communication subject and has an initial encryption key generation code, an additional electronic key that communicates with the communication subject, and an information center including an additional encryption key. The initial electronic key holds an initial encryption key generated from the initial encryption key generation code and a logic. The controller holds the logic and identification information of the communication subject. The controller acquires the initial encryption key generation code from the initial electronic key, generates an initial encryption key from the initial encryption key generation code and the logic held by the controller, and stores the initial encryption key. The information center sends the additional encryption key to the additional electronic key or the controller through a network.

  • Publication number: 20130285792
    Abstract: An electronic key registration system includes a controller arranged in a communication subject communicable with an electronic key. A registration tool is in wired or wireless connection with the communication subject. The registration tool registers the electronic key to the controller when receiving a registration permission signal. An information center is connected to a network. The registration tool includes an operator ID acquisition unit that acquires an operator ID from a key registration operator. A communication unit sends the operator ID to the information center through the network. The information center includes an operator ID verification unit that verifies the operator ID received from the registration tool. A permission information notification unit sends, when the operator ID is verified, a registration permission signal to the registration tool through the network to permit the registration tool to perform the registration process.

  • Patent number: 8532576
    Abstract: A portable device for preventing communication errors caused by disturbance such as noise. The portable device receives a first request signal from a communication controller and transmits a first response signal corresponding to the first request signal. A transmitter transmits the first response signal with a selected one of a plurality of frequencies. A transmission control unit transmits the first response signal from the transmitter with the one of the plurality of frequencies. The portable device further receives a second request signal from the communication control unit, which receives the first response signal. When the second request signal cannot be received, the portable device retransmits the first response signal from the transmitter with a frequency that differs from the one of the plurality of frequencies.

  • Publication number: 20130217217
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a pattern forming method is disclosed. A resist pattern having a top surface is formed pattern on a substrate. A coating film having a first thickness distribution is formed on the substrate. The coating film covers the resist pattern. The coating film is thinned to expose the top surface of the resist pattern. The first thickness distribution is changed into a second thickness distribution which is more uniform than the first thickness distribution. The resist pattern is removed without removing the coating film. A pattern is formed in the substrate by processing the substrate by using the coating film as a mask.

  • Publication number: 20110229826
    Abstract: This invention discloses a method to form a resist pattern on a to-be-processed substrate by immersion exposure. A resist film is formed on the central portion of the upper surface of the to-be-processed substrate, on a bevel portion of the upper surface, which is obtained by chamfering the peripheral portion of the to-be-processed substrate, and on the end portion of the to-be-processed substrate. Pattern exposure for forming the latent image of a desired pattern on the resist film is executed while a liquid whose refractive index is higher than that of air exists between the resist film and a constituent element of a projection optical system of an exposure apparatus, which is nearest to the to-be-processed substrate. The resist film formed on the end portion of the to-be-processed substrate is removed by supplying a rinse solution to the end portion of the to-be-processed substrate after executing pattern exposure.

  • Publication number: 20110102755
    Abstract: According to embodiments, a substrate coated with a resist film is carried into a first pressure adjustment mechanism. Then, a peripheral atmosphere of the substrate is decompressed from an atmospheric pressure by the first pressure adjustment mechanism to measure a physical quantity correlated with an outgassing amount from the substrate. Then, whether to subject the substrate to an EUV exposure is determined based on a measurement result of the physical quantity. If determined not to subject the substrate to the EUV exposure, the substrate is transported into a second pressure adjustment mechanism without the substrate being subjected to the EUV exposure. Then, the substrate is carried out of the second pressure adjustment mechanism.
