  • Patent number: 10734617
    Abstract: A battery module includes a plurality of flat or square type batteries that each have a positive terminal and a negative terminal; a holder that has an opening, and retains the batteries in such a manner that the positive terminal and the negative terminal are positioned toward the opening, and that the principal surfaces of the batteries face each other; a cover that is disposed over the opening; a circuit board that is disposed over the cover; and a plurality of connection members that are disposed between the cover and the circuit board to electrically connect the positive terminal and negative terminal. Some of the connection members retain a peripheral portion of the circuit board.

  • Patent number: 10355212
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a polymer includes a recurring unit containing a bivalent group expressed by a formula (1) shown below. A weight-average molecular weight of the polymer is in a range of 3000 or more to 1000000 or less. R1 is a monovalent group selected from hydrogen, a substituted or unsubstituted alkyl group, a substituted or unsubstituted alkanoyl group, a substituted or unsubstituted aryl group, and a substituted or unsubstituted heteroaryl group. X is an atom selected from oxygen, sulfur, and selenium. Y and Z are each independently a bivalent group selected from a carbonyl group, a sulfinyl group, and a sulfonyl group. A case where Y and Z are both the carbonyl groups is excluded.

  • Patent number: 10306166
    Abstract: A solid-state imaging device is provided, which includes a photodiode having a first conductivity type semiconductor area that is dividedly formed for each pixel; a first conductivity type transfer gate electrode formed on the semiconductor substrate via a gate insulating layer in an area neighboring the photodiode, and transmitting signal charges generated and accumulated in the photodiode; a signal reading unit reading a voltage which corresponds to the signal charge or the signal charge; and an inversion layer induction electrode formed on the semiconductor substrate via the gate insulating layer in an area covering a portion or the whole of the photodiode, and composed of a conductor or a semiconductor having a work function. An inversion layer is induced, which is formed by accumulating a second conductivity type carrier on a surface of the inversion layer induction electrode side of the semiconductor area through the inversion layer induction electrode.

  • Patent number: 5471559
    Abstract: Fuzzy knowledge stored in a knowledge base is written into a memory. When fuzzy reasoning is executed by a fuzzy reasoning unit based on the content of the memory, a control unit in a central processing unit may modify the knowledge base in the memory. The control unit is programmed such that after it has modified the knowledge base in the memory, it causes a reasoning execution unit to repeatedly and automatically execute predetermined fuzzy reasoning by the number of times corresponding to the number of input data. The control unit also modifies the knowledge base and causes the reasoning execution unit to execute the fuzzy reasoning. By reading out the knowledge base in the memory, it is possible to verify the validity of the fuzzy knowledge without executing the simulation of the fuzzy reasoning. The fuzzy reasoning course of the reasoning execution unit may be stored in another memory.

  • Patent number: 5243689
    Abstract: In a computer system having a storage unit for storing at least one of a program and knowledge used for solving a problem, an input/output unit for inputting a problem to be presently solved, and an execution unit for obtaining a proposed solution of one of the problem to be presently solved and a partial problem of the problem, by using at least one of the program and knowledge in the storage unit, an inference processing method includes the steps of storing a modification case generated upon modification of a solution, calculating a portion, unable to be solved by the proposed solution obtained by the execution unit, of one of the problem to be solved and the partial problem, searching for a modification case containing a problem similar to the unsolved portion, from the modification cases generated upon modification of solutions to problems, correlating the searched modification case with the proposed solution obtained by the execution unit, and modifying the proposed solution obtained by the execution uni

  • Patent number: 4942536
    Abstract: In a case where an electronic circuit having the same function is to be realized by a different device, it is indispensable to prepare circuit diagrams conforming to devices and to utilize them for the job of circuit simulation or chip layout. When the circuit diagrams are to be automatically translated for the above purpose, translation rules become different depending upon the connective relations of an element to be translated, with other elements in the circuit or upon a function performed by the element. The present invention puts the rules into knowledge from the viewpoint of knowledge engineering and utilizes it thereby to realize the intended purpose.

  • Patent number: 4803636
    Abstract: In order to translate an original circuit consisting of a set of first devices into a target circuit which consists of a set of second devices different from the first devices, and which has the same functions as the original circuit, provision is made of memory means for storing translation rules in the first devices, translation rules in the second devices, and translation rules between the first devices and the second devices, and translation means which successively refers to these translation rules and translates the original circuit data into the target circuit data via steps that translate the original circuit data into a plurality of intermediate data.
