  • Patent number: 11002236
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to supply a high-pressure fuel supply pump capable of holding a spring holding member while reducing the height of the pump body. A high-pressure fuel supply pump is provided with a pump body for forming a pressurizing chamber at an inner wall portion, and a flange portion for fixing the pump body to a high-pressure fuel supply pump mounting portion. The high-pressure fuel supply pump is provided with a cylinder and a spring holding member. The cylinder is inserted into a hole portion of the pump body from a lower side and in which the pressurizing chamber is formed further above an uppermost end surface. The spring holding member has an outer peripheral portion press-fitted and fixed to the pump body and a holding portion holding a spring portion for biasing the pump body between the outer peripheral portion and the inner peripheral portion.

  • Patent number: 10737477
    Abstract: A method for producing a bonded plate-shaped assembly includes retaining a pair of plate-shaped members facing each other by a pair of retaining base members; charging a photo-curable liquid material between the pair of plate-shaped members facing each other; causing movement of the pair of retaining base members by a retaining base member movement unit to cause the pair of plate-shaped members to draw close to each other to cause wetting spreading of the liquid material between the pair of plate-shaped members; detecting a wetting spreading state of the liquid material by a sensor; and illuminating curing light, in response to the result of detection, to the liquid material wettingly spread to the entire surfaces of the pair of plate-shaped members, to form the bonded plate-shaped assembly made up of the pair of plate-shaped members bonded together.

  • Patent number: 10617125
    Abstract: A clamping device for a bone-in limb meat according to an embodiment includes a base portion, a pair of clamp pieces mounted to the base portion and configured to hold a bone-in limb meat, and an orientation adjusting member for adjusting an orientation of the bone-in limb meat, the orientation adjusting member being mounted to the base portion independently of the pair of clamp pieces and having an inclined surface inclined at an acute angle with respect to a center line between the pair of clamp pieces.

  • Patent number: 10019375
    Abstract: A cache device has a data memory capable of storing a piece of first cache line data and a piece of second cache line data for first and second ways in compressed form, and a tag memory configured to store, for each of the pieces of cache line data, a piece of tag data including uncompressed data writing state information, an absence flag, and a compression information field. In case of modifying only part of a cache line, i.e., a partial write, a request converter converts a write request into a read request, and a read-out piece of data is decompressed and written in a write status buffer. Data may be written from the write status buffer to the data memory without being compressed, which eliminates a need for decompression and compression for every writing or modifying operation of a piece of partial data, thereby reducing latency and power consumption.

  • Patent number: 9990288
    Abstract: An information processing device of an embodiment has an input unit, a storage unit, a read control unit, and a write control unit. A read request and a write request are input to the input unit. The storage unit stores management information. When the read request is input, the read control unit reads read data including the management information from the storage unit, references the management information, and outputs only non-zero data included in a predetermined range of a block row. The write control unit writes only non-zero data to the storage unit and updates the management information immediately before a start position of the continuous non-zero data started from a largest position in the continuous non-zero data started from a position smaller than the predetermined range, a last management information stored in the predetermined range, and the last management information in the predetermined range.
