  • Publication number: 20200194554
    Abstract: A drift layer is formed of silicon carbide and has a first conductivity type. A trench bottom protective layer is provided on a bottom portion of a gate trench and has a second conductivity type. A depletion suppressing layer is provided between a side surface of the gate trench and the drift layer, extends from a lower portion of a body region up to a position deeper than the bottom portion of the gate trench, has the first conductivity type, and has an impurity concentration of the first conductivity type higher than that of the drift layer. The impurity concentration of the first conductivity type of the depletion suppressing layer is reduced as the distance from the side surface of the gate trench becomes larger.

  • Patent number: 8100888
    Abstract: A capsulated body having a facility, which acquires biomedical information through endoscopic examination or the like, incorporated therein is inserted into a duct within a living body. Whether the capsulated body has halted for a certain period of time is detected from the time-varying position of the capsulated body or a time-passing change in an image. If it is judged that the capsulated body has halted at a stenosed region or the like, the fact is notified so that the capsulated body can be collected immediately.

  • Patent number: 7651471
    Abstract: An encapsulated medical device is passed through the lumen of a body cavity in order to examine, cure, or treat an internal region of the body cavity under the control of the extracorporeal device. A capsule body has a linkage hole bored in the extended portion thereof so that when the capsule body comes into close contact with the internal surface of a body cavity to block the lumen thereof, the linkage hole will realize a fluid passage which allows a fluid such as a gas or humor to flow into the forward and backward parts of the lumen.

  • Patent number: 7511733
    Abstract: A battery self-containing body, which self-contains a battery or a battery accommodating body, which accommodates a battery removably is attached to a capsule body including a drive circuit for driving an imaging device and an illuminating device. Thus, the power supply can be turned ON easily. In addition, the inside portion is sealed water-tightly. Thus, the battery self-containing body or a battery can be exchanged easily, which allows the easy reuse. The direction of the visual field of the imaging device is diagonal with respect to the axis of the capsule body. Furthermore, spiral-shape projections are provided on the peripheral surface of the cylinder form. Thus, the rotation allows the surface of canal cavity wall to be examined easily.

  • Publication number: 20060229592
    Abstract: An encapsulated medical device includes a radio antenna through which the encapsulated medical device transmits or receives a radio wave to or from an extracorporeal device. The encapsulated medical device is passed through the lumen of a body cavity in order to examine, cure, or treat an internal region of the body cavity under the control of the extracorporeal device. A capsule body included in the encapsulated medical device has an extended portion formed at an upper end of one axis of a cross section of the capsule body cut at right angle to the longitudinal axis thereof. Herein, the cross section of the capsule body is non-circular. However, providing the capsule body does not has the extended portion, the cross section of the capsule body is substantially circular.
