  • Patent number: 6326993
    Abstract: When a CPU begins to monitor whether delay variation characteristics of a pulse width variation circuit have varied, it selects a basic delay setting value in a basic delay value setting block from a smallest one. The CPU sets a division number in a phase select block from a given minimum desired division number for pulse width modulation. The CPU senses the level of a phase comparison result signal (PHASE) from the pulse width modulation circuit. If the phase comparison result signal is stable at “1”, the CPU 1 fixes the division number. If the phase comparison result signal is “0” and the division number is not maximum, the CPU increases the division number and goes back to the setting of the division number. If the division number is maximum, the CPU increases the basic delay and goes back to the basic delay setting.

  • Patent number: 6104599
    Abstract: Internal electrodes 21 to 27 overlap one another in the direction of thickness T via dielectric ceramic layers 10 inside a dielectric ceramic body 1, with alternate ends of adjacent internal electrodes connected to the pair of external terminal electrodes 31 and 32 at alternate sides in the lengthwise direction L. The ends of the internal electrodes 21 to 27 at the other side in the lengthwise direction L extend into the areas enclosed by the external terminal electrodes 31 and 32, with the two corner portions of each internal electrode at the opposite side in the widthwise direction W cut off.

  • Patent number: 4474363
    Abstract: A suspension for an automobile comprises a cylinder having a lower seat secured fixedly to an outer periphery thereof, a piston rod projecting from the cylinder and having an upper portion supported rotatably by a car body and a coil spring having lower and upper ends respectively held by the lower seat and an upper seat. To the piston rod is secured fixedly a guide having a cylindrical portion provided on an outer periphery with a thread. A movable member provided on an inner periphery with a thread engaging the thread on the guide is coupled with the guide by the engagement of both threads. The movable member is secured fixedly to the upper seat. The piston rod is provided with a tool engaging portion which is turned to adjust the car height.
