  • Patent number: 10396721
    Abstract: A distributor distributes an input signal to a first transmission line and a second transmission line. A high-pass filter, a first linearizer, and a first phase shifter disposed on the first transmission line adjust the phase and amplitude of an intermodulation distortion in a low-frequency range. A low-pass filter, a second linearizer, and a second phase shifter disposed on the second transmission line adjust the phase and amplitude of an intermodulation distortion in a high-frequency range. A synthesizer synthesizes the signal from the first transmission line and the signal from the second transmission line.

  • Publication number: 20190226514
    Abstract: A nut is caulked and fixed to a plate material and a protrusion at an end of a collar is press-fitted into a recessed groove generated on the opposite surface of the plate material at the time of the caulking fixation, thereby fixing the nut and the collar to both surfaces of the plate material, respectively. The plate material is, for example, a metal panel, and the nut is, for example, a pierce nut. Since the collar is caulked and fixed, thermal strain is not generated.
