  • Patent number: 10513117
    Abstract: According to an embodiment, an ink jet head (liquid ejecting head) includes an actuator plate and a cover plate (see FIG. 8). As illustrated in FIG. 1, channel grooves for a discharge channel (ejection channel) and a non-discharge channel (non-ejection channel) in a Z-direction are formed on a front surface of the actuator plate, so as to be alternately arranged in an X-direction, by cutting with a dicing blade or the like. The discharge channel and the non-discharge channel are formed to have a groove width W of smaller than 70 ?m, in order to correspond to high density of nozzles. In the embodiment, the discharge channel and the non-discharge channel are formed to have a groove width of 55 ?m, 50 ?m, or 40 ?m, for example.

  • Patent number: 10140956
    Abstract: A display control apparatus assigning display images to multiple areas of a vehicle-mounted display is disclosed. The display control apparatus stores area relationship information for each of the areas and image relationship information for each of the display images. Of two display images related to each other, the display control apparatus determines that one display image belongs to a first image group and the other display image belongs to a second image group. The display control apparatus assigns the one display image to the areas by performing a predetermined comparison operation, and then assigns the other display image to the areas based on the area assigned the one display image and the area relationship information.

  • Patent number: 10089910
    Abstract: In the image display device, the vignetting pattern generator generates a vignetting pattern image composed of image data having inverted brightness characteristics obtained by inverting brightness characteristics of a panel of the liquid crystal display. The display controller carries out control to cause a pattern image obtained by combining a flat pattern image in gray composed of image data having a uniform grayscale level and the vignetting pattern image to be displayed on the liquid crystal display. And the correction data calculator calculates correction data for correcting brightness unevenness of an input image based on brightness values of image data of captured images obtained by imaging, by the camera, the pattern images displayed on the liquid crystal display.

  • Patent number: 10008183
    Abstract: A display-and-audio output control device is provided. In the display-and-audio output control device, a display control unit preferentially allocates a display content having high display information value to a display area out of multiple display contents. An audio control unit allocates an audio content to an audio output device. An obtaining unit obtains audio information amounts of the audio contents and correspondence information between the audio contents and the display contents. Based on the audio information amount of a specific audio content, the management unit changes the display information value of a specific display content associated with the specific display content. The display control unit employs the display information value changed by the management unit to allocate the specific display content to the area for display.

  • Patent number: 9927541
    Abstract: A tool for monopole and multipole sonic logging includes an acoustic source section, an acoustic receiver section, and an isolator section disposed therebetween. The tool may include a mandrel having integrally formed alternating first portions having a first outer diameter and second portions having a second outer diameter. The second outer diameter is smaller than the first outer diameter, which allows the portions to function acoustically as a mass and spring system. The isolator section sufficiently mutes or delays extensional and flexural modes intrinsic to the logging tool itself. Thus, the effects of the tool presence on the measurements are minimized. In addition, a plurality of axially oriented grooves are defined in an outer surface of the acoustic receiver section, and each groove is configured for receiving an acoustic receiver module that includes a sensor, an amplifier, an A/D converter, and a digital multiplexer.

  • Patent number: 9436430
    Abstract: An audio output control device includes a control device that adjusts an output of earlier audio information and an output of later audio information in a situation where a request for outputting the later audio information is made before the output of the earlier audio information ends. The control device includes: a first acquisition device that acquires end time information of the earlier audio information; a second acquisition device that acquires delay permissible information of the later audio information; and a first determination device that determines whether a wait for outputting the later audio information is available, according to the end time information and the delay permissible information. When the wait is available, the control device outputs the later audio information after preferentially executing the output of the earlier audio information.
