  • Patent number: 11990856
    Abstract: A rotation detector includes a motor, a current detector and a hardware processor. The motor includes coils of two or more phases and a rotor. The current detector detects currents flowing in coils of at least two phases among the coils of two or more phases. The hardware processor estimates an initial position of the rotor based on current values of the currents detected by the current detector to start the motor, controls an energization pattern on the phases to rotate and start the motor based on the estimated initial position, and determines whether the rotor stops or is rotating before completing the estimation of the initial position.

  • Publication number: 20240135155
    Abstract: In a data processing device, a fixed-point position control unit determines, as first control. The fixed-point position control unit causes a detection calculation unit to perform calculation processing on processing target data at a processing point in time. The saturation rate control unit instructs, as second control to be repeated by the fixed-point position control unit, the fixed-point position control unit to move at least the fixed-point position as control to increase a lower limit saturation rate proportional to a magnitude of a counted lower limit counter value with respect to a result of the first control. The fixed-point position control unit performs, as the second control, a predetermined determination on the basis of the instruction from the saturation rate control unit and the metadata, determines the fixed-point position moved for each layer, and causes calculation processing to be performed.
