  • Publication number: 20220310301
    Abstract: In the multi-layer inductor, all of the plurality of through conductors are not aligned in a straight line, and the distance between the through conductors can be sufficiently kept in the element body having a predetermined dimensional standard. Therefore, the through conductor as a heat source is apart from each other, and the heat of the through conductor can be efficiently radiated to the outside of the element body.

  • Publication number: 20220310299
    Abstract: In the multi-layer inductor, the internal electrode includes the auxiliary conductor, and the auxiliary conductor is jointed to the external electrode at the end face. Therefore, when a defect occurs in a part of the through conductors, a current flows through the remaining through conductor(s) and a current also flows through the auxiliary conductor. Therefore, overheating at the joint surface between the remaining through conductor(s) and the external electrode can be prevented, and cutting and/or fusion starting from the joint surface can be prevented.

  • Publication number: 20070187240
    Abstract: A gas sensor, a gas concentration detection system and a method of manufacturing the gas concentration detection system are disclosed. A gas sensor carries an individual information identifying section, which stores unique individual information related to the gas sensor. The individual information identifying section includes a two-dimensional information code readable with an image recognition device. The individual information identifying section includes a two-dimensional information code readable with an image recognition device. The gas concentration detecting system comprises, in addition to the gas sensor and the image recognition device, an engine control unit operative to correct a sensor output readout value, which is actually read out from the gas sensor, depending on information related to a sensor output value included in the information code.

  • Patent number: 6824431
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a card adapter for electrically connecting electrical connecting portions of a card-shaped electronic device such as a CF card to contacts in a slot for a PC card provided in a personal computer. The card adapter 1 includes a chassis 10, a pair of conducting plates 40 provided on the upper and lower sides of the chassis 10, and a grounding member 20, and the like. The grounding member 20 is used to provide an electrical path for electrically connecting a grounding contact portion of the CF card to a grounding part of the slot without using the conducting plates 40 and it is formed into a single part. By using such a grounding member 20, the card adapter 1 can directly connect the grounding contact portion of the CF card to the grounding part of the slot to accomplish stable and reliable grounding.

  • Patent number: 6789259
    Abstract: A recording media unit includes a slot through which a recording media is inserted into and ejected out of the recording media unit, a first shutter, attached to the recording media unit, that closes the slot in a state where the recording media is not accommodated in the recording media unit, and a second shutter, pivotably attached to the recording media unit, that closes the slot in a state where the recording media is accommodated in the recording media unit. The first shutter is configured to open in accordance with an insertion operation of the recording media in which the recording media pushes the first shutter, and the second shutter is configured to rotate about a pivot at one end of the second shutter in accordance with an ejection operation of the recording media in which the recording media pushes the second shutter.

  • Patent number: 6749732
    Abstract: A rapid response structure of a gas sensor which includes a protective cover assembly defining therein a gas chamber to which a gas to be measured is admitted. The gas assembly consists of an outer and an inner cover. The inner cover is disposed within the outer cover with a clearance which defines a gas path extending from gas inlet holes formed in the outer cover to the gas chamber through gas inlet holes formed in the inner cover. The outer and inner covers are so designed geometrically as to minimize the interference of a return gas flow produced within the clearance with the flow of the gas into the gas chamber, thereby facilitating the entrance of the gas into the gas chamber.
