  • Patent number: 11373886
    Abstract: A substrate processing apparatus includes: a mixer that mixes a first phosphoric acid and an additive serving as raw materials of a processing liquid with each other at a predetermined mixing ratio, thereby preparing a mixed liquid; a mixing ratio corrector that corrects the mixing ratio of the raw materials of the processing liquid; a processing unit that processes a substrate with the processing liquid. The mixer includes a mixing tank that stores the mixed liquid, a first phosphoric acid supply that supplies the first phosphoric acid to the mixing tank, and an additive supply that supplies the additive to the mixing tank. The mixing ratio corrector includes a liquid line through which the mixed liquid is delivered from the mixer to the processing unit, and a second phosphoric acid supply connected to the liquid line so as to supply second phosphoric acid to the liquid line.

  • Publication number: 20220189132
    Abstract: An image acquisition unit (2) acquires an image obtained by capturing at least eyes of a target person. An object specifying unit (4) specifies an object in a line-of-sight direction of the target person using the acquired image. An incident light amount calculation unit (6) calculates an incident light amount representing an amount of light incident on the eyes of the target person using the acquired image. A reference pupil size determination unit (8) determines a reference pupil size based on the calculated incident light amount. A pupil size calculation unit (10) calculates a pupil size of the target person using the acquired image. An interest determination unit (12) determines an interest of the target person in the object by comparing the determined reference pupil size with the calculated pupil size.

  • Patent number: 11351591
    Abstract: A hold device is attached to press tooling. The hold device includes a distance member attached to a holder, and a moving device attached to a first die unit. The holder is provided in a movable manner with respect to a punch in a press direction, and a pad is provided in a movable manner with respect to a die in the press direction. The distance member is pivotable between a home position in which the distance member does not come into contact with the second die and a preventive position in which the distance between the pad and the holder in the press direction is prevented from being equal to or less than a predetermined distance. As the holder moves relative to the punch in the first direction, the moving device causes the distance member to pivot from the home position toward the preventive position.

  • Publication number: 20220164551
    Abstract: An arithmetic apparatus includes input line pairs and a multiply-accumulate device. A signal pair is input to the input line pairs within an input period. The multiply-accumulate device includes multiplication units, an accumulation unit, a charging unit, and an output unit. The multiplication units generate a positive weight charge and a negative weight charge. The accumulation unit accumulates the positive weight charge and the negative weight charge. The charging unit charges the accumulation unit after the input period. The output unit performs, after charging starts, threshold determination using a predetermined threshold value on a voltage of the accumulation unit, to thereby output a positive multiply-accumulate signal representing a sum of positive weight product values and a negative multiply-accumulate signal representing a sum of negative weight product values.
