  • Patent number: 10902112
    Abstract: There is provided a system (1) comprising: a processing unit (11) equipped with execution modes including a non-secure mode (3) in which access to a protected region of a memory is prohibited by a support function (12) and a secure mode (2) in which access to the protected region is permitted; and a hypervisor (20) which runs in the secure mode. The hypervisor includes: a first setting unit (23) for setting a first operation condition (21), which includes enabling a first OS (30) running in the secure mode to access the protected region and the unprotected region of the memory; and a second setting unit (24) for setting a second operation condition (22a), which includes enabling a second OS (41) running in the non-secure mode to access the unprotected region, using the support function to prevent the second OS (41) from accessing the secure region, and enabling a transition to the secure mode by accessing of the second OS to a first device shared with the first OS.

  • Publication number: 20200238585
    Abstract: An injection molding device includes an injection machine, a molding die, and a high frequency oscillation device. The injection machine injects a resin material containing a dielectric heat generating material while keeping fluidity by temperature control. The molding die includes a cavity being a channel of flow of the resin material, and a pair of electrodes, each of which faces the cavity, the pair of electrodes being disposed to sandwich the resin material therebetween in a direction crossing a direction of the flow. The high frequency oscillation device applies a high frequency alternate-current voltage to the pair of electrodes.

  • Patent number: 10668379
    Abstract: A three-dimensional virtual space is photographed by a virtual camera to generate a first image and a second image different from the first image. The first image synchronously displays the state of the virtual space, and the second image is displayed asynchronously with the first image. The first image and the second image are obtained by photographing the three-dimensional virtual space in parallel.

  • Patent number: 10418204
    Abstract: A switch device includes a housing, an operating member, a fixed contact, and a moving contact. The moving contact is, while being in contact with the fixed contact, urged toward the fixed contact so as to be in elastic contact with the fixed contact. The fixed contact includes a plate portion and is held by the housing with a space on one surface side of the plate portion. The moving contact includes a first extended portion that extends so as to intersect the plate portion. When the moving contact and the fixed contact are in contact with each other, the first extended portion intersects the plate portion while being inclined relative to the plate portion, and the first extended portion is in elastic contact with a corner portion on a one surface side of an edge of the plate portion.
