  • Patent number: 10350588
    Abstract: In a state where an operator performs operation using a safety cabinet while confirming standard operating procedures and sample data, a display device such as a monitor screen provided in the safety cabinet is arranged at a position that is not subject to effects of deterioration due to diffused reflection of light from a fluorescent lamp or sterilization lamp irradiation, and that does not generate resistance in an airflow path, while also protecting the display device from decontamination operation and preventing dirt from being adhered to a portion related to display.

  • Patent number: 9136150
    Abstract: There is provided a technique which can prevent poor processing of successive substrates in the event of a failure of a module or a transport mechanism for transporting a substrate between modules. A substrate processing apparatus includes: a plurality of modules from which a substrate holder of a substrate transport mechanism receives a substrate; a sensor section for detecting a displacement of the holding position of a substrate, held by the substrate holder, from a reference position preset in the substrate holder; and a storage section for storing the displacement, detected when the substrate holder receives a substrate from each of the modules, in a chronological manner for each module. A failure of one of the modules or the substrate transport mechanism is estimated based on the chronological data on the displacement for each module, stored in the storage section. This enables an early detection of a failure or abnormality.

  • Patent number: 8958656
    Abstract: A contour correction device is provided having a video image judging unit which executes an edge detection process to detect a change of a signal in a video image as an edge portion, and a texture detection process to detect a texture portion in which a change of signal smaller than the edge portion in the video image repeatedly appears, and a contour component gain adjusting unit which applies contour correction processes which differ from each other to the edge portion and the texture portion.

  • Patent number: 8411202
    Abstract: In an automatic gain control circuit comprising a black level detecting unit which detects a black level from a video signal, a white level detecting unit which detects a white level from the video signal, and an analog-to-digital converter which adjusts a dynamic range of the video signal based on a difference value between the black level and the white level, a video signal for adjustment including a black level which indicates a minimum brightness of a video image and a white level which indicates a maximum brightness of the video image is input and the dynamic range is adjusted.

  • Publication number: 20090147847
    Abstract: An encoding apparatus 100 performs intra-frame encoding or inter-frame encoding using a predetermined scheme, or performs an orthogonal transform on an image as one process in the intra-frame encoding or the inter-frame encoding. In order to perform the intra-frame encoding, the inter-frame encoding, or the orthogonal transform, various parameters to be specified by the encoding apparatus are specified as an abbreviated parameter which uses a number of bits less than the number of bits that is assigned by the specification. This enables to reduce the data amount of a parameter in the coded data.

  • Patent number: 6826192
    Abstract: Disclosed is an interface apparatus in a communication network for converting a frame, which has been received from a digital transmission line and has overhead and a payload, to ATM cells, assembling a frame using ATM cells that have been received from an ATM network, and sending the assembled frame to a digital transmission line. The apparatus includes cell conversion zone specifying means for defining, as a cell conversion zone, the smallest possible portion of a frame that contains the overhead data and payload, and generating a signal that specifies the cell conversion zone; pointer creation means for creating a pointer which specifies a predetermined position of the cell conversion zone as a reference position; and cell conversion means for converting data in the cell conversion zone into cells based upon the signal that specifies the cell conversion zone, and for inserting this pointer, which indicates the reference position of the cell conversion zone, in a prescribed cell.
