  • Publication number: 20220146086
    Abstract: A light emitting and receiving module with heater is provided, which includes a base material. A light emitting and receiving element is disposed on the base material and performs at least one of light reception and light emission. A heater film includes an electrode formed on a base sheet. The heater film is formed so as to cover the light emitting and receiving element. A capacitance detection unit electrically connected to the electrode detects a floating capacitance between the light emitting and receiving element and the heater film. A power source electrically connected to the electrode heats the heater film. A control board switches the connection with the electrode between the capacitance detection unit and the power source.

  • Patent number: 11324150
    Abstract: A first braided wire and a second braided wire that are two cylindrical flexible shield members are fixed with a crimp member at different positions in the circumferential direction on a cross section perpendicular to the longitudinal direction of the electromagnetic shield pipe. Thus, the cylindrical end portions of the braided wires are loosened, and each of sheet-like portions is formed on the end portion, and the sheet-like portions of the end portions of the braided wires are disposed at different positions in the circumferential direction of the electromagnetic shield pipe and fixed with the crimp member on a metal layer of the electromagnetic shield pipe. That is, the braided wires are fixed in a section crimped by the crimp member without being overlapped with each other in the circumferential direction of the electromagnetic shield pipe.

  • Publication number: 20210297862
    Abstract: When a user attempts to execute a procedure for transfer or the like from an app, user authentication is first required by a PIN code or the like. When the user authentication is successful, function limitation of an IC chip is released and a mode in which a function provided by the IC chip can be used is set. The app encrypts a procedure message describing procedure content with a private key using the function of the IC chip and creates electronic signature. The electronic signature and the procedure message are transmitted to a server of an online service via an intermediate server. The server executes a procedure of transfer or the like in accordance with the content of the procedure message.

  • Publication number: 20210281415
    Abstract: When a user activates an app, user authentication by a PIN code or the like is first executed. When the user authentication is successful (that is, when it is confirmed that a party operating the app is a user), function limitation of the IC chip is released and a mode in which a function provided by the IC chip can be used is set. The app creates an electronic signature with a private key using the function of the IC chip. When the electronic signature and the user ID are sent to a server of an online service, the server verifies the electronic signature using the corresponding electronic certificate. When the user ID is confirmed to be a user ID sent from a valid user, the user is permitted to use the online service.

  • Patent number: 9842291
    Abstract: A protective cover includes a peripheral wall part and a bottom part to define a receiving space to receive a protrusion part of a storage medium protruding from an external surface of a case having an insertion hole in which the storage medium is put. The peripheral wall part has an opening at an end opposite from the bottom part. The peripheral wall part has an attachment part that is put in the insertion hole. The attachment part is a portion of the peripheral wall part, and has a predetermined length from the opening toward the bottom part. An outer surface of the attachment part is in contact with an inner surface of the insertion hole such that the peripheral wall part is attached to the case. The peripheral wall part has a cutout extending from the opening toward the bottom part.

  • Publication number: 20170201627
    Abstract: Methods and systems provide a telephone service with a personal switch box. One aspect of an embodiment of the invention extends use of a telephone number on a Public Switched Telephone Network to mobile terminals by a personal switch box relaying telephone call signals between the Public Telephone Network and an IP-PBX, where the IP-PBX routes the calls between the personal switch box and a cellular phone that is associated with the personal switch box, through a gateway of a mobile virtual network operator the telephone number over mobile wireless network. The gateway may control network bandwidth allocation for the data traffic with the mobile terminals during voice stream data transmission for providing required quality of service.
