  • Patent number: 5612933
    Abstract: An apparatus for reproducing recorded information reads information from the track surface of a CD-ROM disk 1, performs error detection and correction processing on the read information to reproduce recorded information and then outputs the reproduced information. This apparatus includes a control device 11, which switches a reproduction operation to the standard speed mode in response to a correction failure condition generated in the quadruple speed mode and retries standard-speed reading of the information read with an error uncorrectable in the quadruple speed mode. Reducing the signal read speed to one-fourth in the retry processing at the standard speed improves the C/N ratio of the high-frequency signal RF by 6 dB, which in turn improves the correction capability for random errors.

  • Patent number: 4845351
    Abstract: An IC including an EEP-ROM is formed on a semiconductor wafer. The IC also has exposed address pads connected to the address bus of the EEP-ROM, and exposed data pads connected to the data bus of the EEP-ROM. A test probe is brought into contact with these pads, thereby performing various tests on the IC. After the IC has been tested, the wafer is diced into IC pellets. The address pads are disconnected from the address bus and/or the data pads are disconnected from the data bus. For example, the edge portions of the IC pellet on which the address pads and/or the data pads are formed are cut by dicing from the remaining portion of the IC pellet. Thereafter, the connecting pads of the IC pellet are wire-bonded to leads, and the IC pellet is sealed with a resin. Finally, the sealed IC pellet is built in an IC card body.
