  • Patent number: 10256337
    Abstract: A device includes a transistor formed on a substrate. The transistor includes an n-type drain contact layer, an n-type drain layer, an oxide layer, a p-type body region, a p-type terminal region, body trenches, and terminal trenches. The n-type drain contact layer is near a bottom surface of the substrate. The n-type drain layer is positioned on the n-type drain contact layer. The oxide layer circumscribes a transistor region. The p-type body region is positioned within the transistor region. The p-type terminal region extends from under the oxide layer to an edge of the transistor region, thereby forming a contiguous junction with the p-type body region. The body trenches is within the transistor region and interleaves with the p-type body region, whereas the terminal trenches is outside the transistor region and interleaves with the p-type terminal region.

  • Patent number: 10235658
    Abstract: The maintenance management device 3 includes an error status diagnosis unit 11, a grace period estimation unit 14, a maintenance cost estimation unit 15, and a screen display unit 17. When the error status diagnosis unit 11 has diagnosed the occurrence of an anomaly, the grace period estimation unit 14 estimates a first grace period leading up to the occurrence of a failure. The maintenance cost estimation unit 15 estimates the cost of corrective maintenance incurred when the failure occurs after the elapse of the first grace period. The screen display unit 17 displays a combination of the first grace period and the cost of corrective maintenance. Alternatively, the grace period estimation unit 14 estimates a second grace period over which preventive maintenance may be postponed without a failure.

  • Publication number: 20180297198
    Abstract: Indicators are set on a marker positioned on a working stage in conformity with a target teaching point. A stereo camera images the indicator in a state of being positioned on a robot hand, and measures the three-dimensional position of the marker. In robot arm controlling, the robot hand is positioned at the correction teaching point for off-line that is offset from an off-line teaching point in the depth of field direction of the stereo camera. In imaging, while the robot hand is positioned at the correction teaching point for off-line, the indicators are imaged by the stereo camera. In correcting, based on an imaging result of the indicator, the on-line teaching point is corrected toward the target teaching point to obtain the on-line teaching point.

  • Patent number: 10073447
    Abstract: In industrial machine abnormality diagnosis, if the machine is diagnosed to have abnormality, then sensor data from the machine needs to be sent to a management center for causal analysis. However, since machines operated at a remote site cannot always communicate with a management center, it has been found that, in some cases, sensor data that has failed to be sent from a machine remains in the memory of the machine, resulting in lack of available memory capacity. In view of this, the present invention determines beforehand whether the diagnosed machine will run out of available memory capacity before the completion of sending the amount of sensor data required for causal analysis for the machine, and instructs a maintenance person to recover memory.

  • Publication number: 20180234746
    Abstract: Sensor data immediately after the issuance of an alarm does not exhibit the peculiarity of a failure, with the result that the wrong component is sometimes erroneously identified as the failure component. A failure component identification unit provided in a maintenance device collects an alarm issued when a measurement value exceeds a range of a measurement threshold value in an apparatus being a maintenance target. The failure component identification unit identifies the failure component on the basis of the measurement value exhibiting a condition indicating a peculiarity of the failure. An identification reliability determination unit determines the reliability of the component identification result obtained by a failure component identification unit.

  • Publication number: 20180215782
    Abstract: The present invention has an object of providing a peptide synthesis method using a carrier capable of reversibly repeating the dissolved state and the insolubilized state, wherein the problem of an amino acid active species existing in the reaction system in de-protection reaction can be easily solved. The present invention provides a peptide synthesis method comprising the following steps: a step of condensing an N-Fmoc protected amino acid with a peptide having a C-terminal protected with a carrier which is crystallized according to a change of a composition of a dissolving solvent, in the presence of a condensing agent, to obtain an N-Fmoc-C-carrier protected peptide, a step of adding an alkylamine having 1 to 14 carbon atoms or hydroxyl amine to the reaction system, a step of de-protecting the N-terminal, and a step of changing the composition of the solvent dissolving the C-carrier protected peptide, to crystallize and separate the peptide.
