  • Patent number: 7447218
    Abstract: Communication is performed without paying attention to the fact that the communication is executed between multimedia terminals having communication procedures differing from each other. A terminal 2 starts a communication procedure that is necessary to establish a communication path to a communication service unit 1, in order to execute communication with a multimedia terminal 3; when a communication protocol conversion unit 7 receives communication start request from the terminal 2, the communication service unit executes identification process of a calling terminal based on the identification number, which exists in communication start request, for determining the multimedia terminal 2, and inquires a terminal information managing unit 9 of the calling terminal. The terminal information managing unit 9 retrieves terminal information related to the calling terminal based on a terminal information request, and informs of the retrieved terminal information to the communication protocol conversion unit 7.

  • Patent number: 7185823
    Abstract: A paper-like RFID tag is fabricated by bonding bumps of an RFID chip to an antenna to connect the chip to the antenna, the antenna being formed by a metal foil bonded onto a base film or a base tape, providing a protecting material around the RFID chip so that an upper surface becomes higher than that of the RFID chip, to constitute an RFID thread, and inlaying the RFID thread in between first and second paper layers to afford a paper-like structure. The thickness of the paper-like RFID tag fabricated as above is 0.1 mm or less. Further, the paper-like RFID tag is of high quality and has a surface smoothness almost equal to that of the ordinary type of paper, permitting a long-distance communication.

  • Patent number: 6516005
    Abstract: The object of this invention is to realize the correct and prompt synchronization of data in decoding and reproducing multiplexed coded data multiplexed with a plurality of media coded data in the unit of packet without regard to the configuration or characteristics of the apparatus. To achieve a data decoder that can synchronize the video and audio data correctly, the timing controller obtains a buffering time indicated by the time difference between the decoding end time and the specified presentation time contained in the data, and data buffering is performed by buffer memory. The video decoding end time is latched from the system time counter according to a timing pulse generated by the video decoder when the first decoded data is output from video decoder after the data decoder is activated.
