  • Patent number: 7091463
    Abstract: Each transfer electrode of a charge transfer unit is made of a main electrode layer and subsidiary electrode layers formed on the side walls of the main electrode layer. The upper surfaces of the transfer electrodes are flush with each other. A charge coupled device having a practically sufficient charge transfer efficiency can be provided. If this charge coupled device is used for an image pickup apparatus, the distance between photoelectric conversion elements and micro lenses can be shortened.

  • Patent number: 5664362
    Abstract: A fishing lure for largemouth bass and other fishes within the family Centrarchidae is described. The lure comprises a body member having incorporated therein a sufficient quantity of an agent in a manner such that the lure will emit effective concentrations of the agent when said lure is within the mouth of the fish. The agent comprises, L-arginine and L-lysine individually, any combinations or mixtures of L-arginine and L-lysine, any mixtures or combinations containing L-arginine and/or L-lysine, and any compounds and/or mixtures of compounds which, in combination with water, will release L-arginine and/or L-lysine.

  • Patent number: 5596706
    Abstract: A highly reliable online system is disclosed which is provided with a backup computer center (sub-online system) in addition with an original computer center (main online system) in order to improve the reliability of the online system. With respect to the database, the main online system is provided with an original database (main database) while the sub-online system is provided with a backup database (sub-database) which is a duplicate of the main database. The main online system and the sub-online system are connected through a transmission path. Information on an update performed in the main database is transferred to the sub-online system through the transmission path to thereby update the sub-database in a manner similar to the main database. Terminal units are normally connected to the main online system, wherein the main database is updated by transactions inputted from the terminals.

  • Patent number: 4363649
    Abstract: An impact rod is vertically guided within a guide cylinder to drop into a glass bottle to be tested which is held vertically below by a bottle gripper, the impact rod thereby striking the bottom of the bottle with preset impact force. A plurality of these guide cylinders with respective impact rods and corresponding bottle grippers are supported on structures revolving unitarily around a pole, the bottle grippers operating to grip successively bottles supplied from a production line and to carry the bottles around a partial circle as they are tested by the corresponding impact rods which are operated by adjustable cam action. The impact force is adjustably variable by adjusting the height of drop and/or weight of the impact rod.

  • Patent number: 4021239
    Abstract: In the method of exposing a relatively large number of parallel, spaced apart stripe-like areas on the surface of a photo-sensitive member by directing light against such surface through an original photo-mask having a light-permeable pattern comprised of a relatively small number of parallel, spaced apart transparent stripes of lengths substantially smaller than the length of the areas to be exposed, and by effecting repeated relative scanning movements of the photo-sensitive member and photo-mask in the direction of the transparent stripes and relatively shifting the photo-sensitive member and the photo-mask in the direction transverse to the transparent stripes for each of the relative scanning movements so that, upon the completion of the repeated movements, light passing through the light-permeable pattern of the photo-mask will have scanned the desired relatively large number of stripe-like areas to be exposed on the surface of the photo-sensitive member; the transparent stripes of the original photo-ma
