  • Publication number: 20200294823
    Abstract: A substrate processing apparatus includes a processing bath, a mixing device, a liquid path, and a silicon solution supply. A substrate is immersed in the processing bath to be processed. The mixing device generates a mixture liquid by mixing a phosphoric acid aqueous solution with an additive that suppresses precipitation of silicon oxide. The liquid path sends the mixture liquid from the mixing device to the processing bath. The silicon solution supply is connected to at least one of the liquid path and the processing bath, and supplies a silicon-containing compound aqueous solution to the mixture liquid supplied from the mixing device.

  • Patent number: 10346706
    Abstract: An imaging processing device includes an image acquisition unit, a character region estimation unit, and an output unit. The character region estimation unit determines a line indicating a direction in which characters are arranged with high probability in the acquired image and estimates a character region candidate in which characters are arranged with high probability. The output unit outputs information of the region estimated in the character region estimation unit. The character region estimation unit includes a vertical line detector, a horizontal line detector, a color distribution detector, and a character region candidate line determination unit. The image processing device includes an association imaging mode to cause a user to shoot an image of the character region candidate.

  • Patent number: 8346970
    Abstract: A data relay device has a reception processing unit for dividing transmitted data into data blocks to store in a storage unit together with labels for managing the data blocks, a manipulation processing unit for manipulating the data blocks stored in the storage unit and a transmission processing unit for transmitting the data blocks of which manipulation is completed to a destination. Since the reception processing unit divides the transmitted data while receiving the same, the reception processing unit, the manipulation processing unit and the transmission processing unit may operated in parallel, thereby realizing reduction of time required to relay the transmitted data.

  • Patent number: 7840957
    Abstract: A computer program and apparatus that minimize the time required to update installed programs to a new version. Upon receipt of a request for updating old version software to a new version, a version information collector first obtains version information describing specified new version software. Then a processing time calculator calculates update processing times for a full update process, a partial update process, and a copy & update process, based on the obtained version information about the new version software, as well as based on version information describing the old version software. A process selector compares the calculated update processing times and selects the fastest update process. Then an updating unit executes the selected fastest update process to update the old version software to the new version software.

  • Patent number: 6212472
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are described for displaying information corresponding to a current vehicle position on a display of a vehicle navigation system. After the current vehicle position is determined by a separate process, the system determines the road on which the vehicle is currently located. The system then refers to a map database to construct a current road database corresponding to the current road. A current road segment corresponding to the current vehicle position is then determined. The system then refers to the current road database to determine a first geographical location based on the current vehicle road segment. The system then displays a text representation of the current vehicle position relative to the first geographical location.

  • Patent number: 6097316
    Abstract: A method for transmitting data from a navigation system to a vehicle controller in a vehicle having a plurality of systems controlled by the vehicle controller is described. The plurality of systems includes a user interface and the navigation system. A request is received from the vehicle controller for interface data of a particular data type to be presented in the user interface. A first transmission protocol is selected from a plurality of transmission protocols for transmitting the interface data to the vehicle controller. The first transmission protocol is selected based, at least in part, on the data type of the interface data. The interface data are then transmitted to the vehicle controller according to the first transmission protocol.

  • Patent number: 5832408
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for selecting a destination in a vehicle navigation system are described. The vehicle navigation system includes a display and a selection control. A first destination is selected from a primary list of destinations in response to a selection signal generated by the selection control. The first destination is placed on a secondary list of destinations in response to its selection. The secondary list includes previously selected destinations from the primary list. For subsequent destination selections, the primary and secondary lists are presented on the display thereby facilitating selection of destinations from both the primary and secondary lists. A feature by which the system may search for a destination across categories is also described.
