  • Patent number: 7352556
    Abstract: A charging method for a plurality of squibs which charges up each storage device built in or attached to each squib which is connected to an ignition control device via a common bus, and can be selectively operated by electrical energy and electrical signals which are supplied from the ignition control device, in which, in the case of charging each storage device, the ignition control device carries out a direction of charging initiation, an electric power supply for charging, and a direction of charging stop for each storage device successively, thereby the charging for all storage devices is completed.

  • Patent number: 7343859
    Abstract: A squib for bus connection includes a communication and ignition unit which is connected via a pin to a bus line and is received within an inner cap, along with a quantity of a first explosive which does not emit corrosive gas. Furthermore, between this inner cap and an outer cap in which it is received, there is charged a quantity of a second explosive which is of a different type from the first explosive, the second explosive being of a type which is used in a squib in a conventional inflator.

  • Patent number: 7322292
    Abstract: A squib that is used by being connected to a bus is formed by assembling an explosive unit and a communication/ignition unit that have been constructed as separate components. The communication/ignition unit is provided with an IC substrate for ignition and communication that is electrically connected to a bus wire. The explosive unit is provided with explosive, an ignition element, and a header that is interposed between the ignition element and the IC substrate, and that electrically connects the two. In this IC integrated type of squib that is used for communication and ignition, it is possible to prevent the explosive and the IC from mutually interfering with the performances of each other.

  • Patent number: 7275485
    Abstract: A squib associated with a supplemental restraint system includes an igniting agent positioned above a first pin that is a connecting terminal providing a connection with a two-wire system bus wire, which is an external signal wire, and above a header that is provided with a second pin that is a connecting terminal. The squib also includes an IC substrate that controls communications and ignitions, and is positioned above the igniting agent, an ignition element between the igniting agent and the IC substrate, and joining portions provided in two locations bridging the igniting agent so as to connect the IC substrate with the first pin and the header. The IC substrate, the igniting agent, the pin, and the header are covered by a circular cylinder shaped cap whose top portion is closed off. Furthermore, these are formed integrally by being covered by a resin mold that is made to extend across the portions of the pins using a molding process.

  • Publication number: 20050132919
    Abstract: A squib includes a heat-generating portion that has an energizing portion and a fuel portion, and that is formed such that heat that is generated by supplying current to the energizing portion can be transmitted to the fuel portion to ignite same. The squib includes a noise removal device that is connected in parallel with the heat generating portion, and a circuit element that temporally scatters noise such that the noise is more completely removed by the noise removal device. In this manner, the heat-generating portion is protected from all typed of noise, including momentary noise, increasing reliability of the squib.
