  • Patent number: 10771132
    Abstract: Disclosed is a MIMO system including a transmitter and a receiver, in which an overall BER characteristic is improved. The transmitter (1) maps data, distributed among transmit antennas, onto an IQ plane to generate carrier symbols, and then, applies an inter-polarization interleave processing in a time direction to the carrier symbols between the transmit antennas, to generate OFDM signals. Receiving the OFDM signals, the receiver (2) demodulates the OFDM signals to generate complex baseband signals, and after that, applies a first deinterleave processing in a time direction to the complex baseband signals to generate time deinterleaved data. Further, the receiver (2) applies a MIMO separation processing to the time deinterleaved data to generate a plurality of sets of MIMO separated data and applies a second deinterleave processing between the receive antennas to the plurality of sets of MIMO separated data, so as to generate carrier symbols.

  • Publication number: 20200280252
    Abstract: A torque transmission mechanism transmits a torque produced by a rotation of a driving shaft to an output shaft. A clutch mechanism is provided between a motor and the torque transmission mechanism. The torque transmission mechanism includes a magnet coupling including a driving magnet member coupled to the driving shaft side and a driven magnet member coupled to the output shaft side. The driving magnet member and the driven magnet member are arranged such that magnetic surfaces on each of which S-pole magnets and N-pole magnets are alternately arranged face other. The clutch mechanism transmits the torque produced by the rotation of the driving shaft to the driving magnet member but does not transmit a torque the driving magnet member receives from the driven magnet member to the driving shaft.

  • Patent number: 10652160
    Abstract: In an on-vehicle system, on-vehicle device and gateway are connected via a first network, and the gateway and relay are connected via a second network. The relay performs open-close control of a gate, using a TAS standard of Ethernet TSN. The gateway receives first and second packets including given data, generates a third packet including the first and second packets, and sends the third packets at the transmission timing that is a timing the gate is placed in from closed state to open state to the relay. The relay receives the third packet from the gateway. The relay switches timing to transfer data, for each type of data, and transfer the third packet to the other relay, during a period in which the gate for the type of data is in an open state.
