  • Publication number: 20220239793
    Abstract: An image formation apparatus to form an image on a sheet having a width direction includes a separation and feed roller pair having a feed roller, a conveyance roller pair having a driving roller, and a pair of conveyance guides having inner and outer guides. A part of the inner guide overhangs toward an outer guide side from an external common tangent of the feed roller and the driving roller. Points of intersection with the feed roller on the external common tangent are designated as first intersection points and points of intersection with the driving roller on the external common tangent are designated as second intersection points. When ends of the feed and driving rollers serve as vertexes, a guide surface of the inner guide is linearly continuous in the width direction in an inner region on the guide surface of the inner guide formed by connecting the vertexes.

  • Publication number: 20040242219
    Abstract: In a wireless communication system where a fixed radio bandwidth is used, a wireless communication apparatus and a usage bandwidth determination method that guarantee the QoS of real time application data without changing the configurations of the existing base station apparatus and IP network. A wireless resource control section (170) negotiates with a base station apparatus (20) when a wireless communication terminal apparatus (10) changes over from an idle mode to a communication mode, to determine a usable radio bandwidth. A bandwidth estimation section (180) estimates the available bandwidth for the non-real time application from the usable radio bandwidth and the required bandwidth for the real time application. An awnd estimation section (190) estimates the maximum awnd that shows the maximum amount of the packet that can be received in the wireless communication terminal apparatus (10) from the available bandwidth for the non-real time application.
