  • Patent number: 10811108
    Abstract: A semiconductor memory device includes: a memory cell array; a peripheral circuit connected to this memory cell array, the peripheral circuit outputting data in the memory cell array as a read data in response to input of a command set, the command set including a first command, address data, and a second command; a first electrode capable of being used in input of the command set and output of the read data; and a second electrode capable of supplying electric power to the peripheral circuit. A current flowing in the second electrode at a second timing is larger than a current flowing in the second electrode at a first timing, the first timing being a timing at which the first command is inputted, the second timing being a timing before which the input of the address data is started and after which an input of the second command is finished.

  • Patent number: 10777239
    Abstract: A semiconductor storage device includes a sense amplifier configured to read and program data in memory cells, a first latch circuit to store read data or program data, a second latch circuit to store the first data transferred from the first latch circuit or the second data before the second data is transferred into the first latch circuit, an input/output circuit to output the first data stored in the second latch circuit and to transfer the second data received thereby to the second latch circuit, and a control circuit. Upon receiving a read command while the control circuit is performing a program operation on program data stored in second latch circuit, the control circuit interrupts the program operation to perform the read operation and resumes the program operation on the program data in response to a resume write command sequence that does not include the program data.

  • Patent number: 10679454
    Abstract: An outdoor terminal device is provided such that after performing an operation on a display with a touch panel, a user can perform an action associated with the operation by moving a hand without being hindered. The outdoor terminal device is equipped with a door having a display with a touch panel on a front surface of a case, and multiple internal units are housed inside the case. The door has panels in predetermined areas. The predetermined areas refer to areas excluding the display area and a function-securing area. An operation surface of the display with a touch panel and front surfaces of the panels are disposed on the same plane in a depth direction. No protruding object is present in a front surface area of the panels located between the operation surface of the display with a touch panel and the function-securing area disposed on an end part of the panels.
