  • Publication number: 20200202925
    Abstract: Connection weight coefficients to be used in a neural network computation are stored in a memory array. A word line drive circuit drives a word line corresponding to input data of a neural network. A column selection circuit connects to a computation circuit bit lines to which a connection weight coefficient to be computed is connected. The computation circuit determines the sum of cell currents flowing in the bit lines. A result of the determination made by the computation circuit is stored in an output holding circuit, and is set as an input of a neural network in the next layer, to the word line drive circuit. A control circuit instructs the word line drive circuit and the column selection circuit to select the word line and the bit line to be used in the neural network computation, based on information held in a network configuration information holding circuit.

  • Patent number: 10300841
    Abstract: In a vehicle lamp device, light emitted by a LED enters a concentration element of a lens and is irradiated from an irradiating face of the concentration element. The reflecting face of the concentration element surrounds a central axis of the concentration element. Light that enters the concentration element is reflected by the reflecting face toward a central axis side of the concentration element, and light reflected by the reflecting face is irradiated from the irradiating face. The concentration element is thus able to efficiently concentrate light emitted by the LED.
