  • Patent number: 11451253
    Abstract: A digital signal process unit includes a first cancel signal generation unit and a second cancel signal generation unit. The first cancel signal generation unit generates, as a first cancel signal component, a cancel signal component corresponding to an image signal included in an analog signal output from a mixer. The second cancel signal generation unit generates, as a second cancel signal component, a cancel signal component corresponding to a leakage signal generated between an input and output of the mixer. The digital signal process unit includes subtractors for subtracting the first cancel signal component and the second cancel signal component from a signal component corresponding to a frequency band divided from an input signal to obtain a digital signal.

  • Patent number: 11394390
    Abstract: A wide-band analog input signal is converted into a digital output signal on the basis of a band division method without the need for filter circuits. An analog processing block Aj (j=2 to N, where N is an integer) down-converts an analog input signal Sx using a cutoff frequency fj-1 of a channel CHj-1 and A/D-converts an analog signal Saj acquired as a result. A digital processing block Bj doubles the signal strength of a first digital signal S1j acquired by Aj, subtracts a third digital signal S3j-1 of the channel CHj-1 from a second digital signal S2j acquired as a result, up-converts the acquired third digital signal S3j using the cutoff frequency fj-1, and outputs the result to an adder as a channel output signal Syj of a corresponding channel CHj.

  • Publication number: 20190001758
    Abstract: In a tire 2, a band 12 is disposed between a tread 4 and a carcass 10 in a radial direction, and is layered over the carcass 10. A first carcass ply 30 of the carcass 10 has a main portion 30a and turned-up portions 30b. A second carcass ply 32 of the carcass 10 is disposed outward of the main portion 30a of the first carcass ply 30 in the radial direction, and is extended on and between one of the beads 8 and the other of the beads 8. Ends P2 of the second carcass ply 32 are disposed between the beads 8 and the turned-up portions 30b, respectively, on outer side in the axial direction. Ends P1 of the turned-up portions 30b are disposed between the main portion 30a and the band 12. The turned-up portions 30b and the band 12 are layered over each other.
