  • Patent number: 10580667
    Abstract: A heat treatment apparatus is provided with two cool chambers, that is, a first cool chamber and a second cool chamber. A semiconductor wafer before treatment is alternately carried into the first cool chamber or the second cool chamber and then transported to a heat treatment part by a transport robot after a nitrogen purge is performed. The semiconductor wafer after being heat-treated in the heat treatment part is alternately transported to the first cool chamber or the second cool chamber to be cooled. A sufficient cooling time is secured for the independent semiconductor wafer, and a reduction in throughput as the whole heat treatment apparatus can be suppressed.

  • Patent number: 8073089
    Abstract: A synchronous pattern detection section checks coincidence between a predetermined reference synchronous pattern and a bit pattern included in a data stream. Each time a bit pattern which coincides with the reference synchronous pattern is detected, the synchronous pattern detection section extracts a frame length of a data frame corresponding to the bit pattern which is detected, and stores the extracted frame length in a storage section. Each time a bit pattern which coincides with the reference synchronous pattern is detected in the synchronous pattern detection section, a synchronization determination section determines whether or not the bit pattern detected by the synchronous pattern detection section is a correct synchronous pattern, based on a plurality of frame lengths stored in the storage section and a bit length of a data stream which is obtained after detection of the bit pattern. With this structure, a synchronous pattern included in the data stream can be detected with higher precision.

  • Patent number: 5963674
    Abstract: An image data encoding apparatus encodes image data at a high speed while minimizing the deterioration of the image quality on a reproduced screen. The apparatus includes an encoding circuit, a code quantity counter and a control circuit. The control circuit compares a total code quantity with a reference code quantity. When the total code quantity exceeds the reference code quantity, the control circuit further compares an excessive quantity with a brought forward code quantity. The control circuit instructs an interruption of generation of the code image data by the encoding circuit when the excessive quantity is larger than the brought forward code quantity.
