  • Patent number: 11500357
    Abstract: A computing system is configured to analyze both measurement data and indicator data as big data aggregated in measurement database and indicator database by deep learning for each lot of a part or for each lot of a finished product and a part pre-associated with each other, and also for each consolidation target between bases subordinate to the same start point corresponding to identification information that specifies a business user of the computing system. Analysis target layers by the deep learning are a three-layer serial hierarchical structure containing a production condition layer and an environment condition layer as a start point for analysis of a part layer, or a four-layer serial hierarchical structure containing a part layer, a production condition layer, and an environment condition layer as a start point for analysis of a finished product layer.

  • Publication number: 20220229124
    Abstract: A method of designing a magnetic sensor that can easily accommodate various design conditions is provided. The method has: preparing magnetic sensors, wherein, for each magnetic sensor, magnetization directions of the first to fourth magnetically pinned layers form first to fourth angles ?1 to ?4 relative to a specific reference angle, respectively, and ?1=?3, ?2=?4, ?1??2, and each magnetic sensor has a value of ?1-?2 that is different from values of 01-02 of remaining magnetic sensors, for each magnetic sensor, obtaining a relationship between an angular range of the magnetization direction of the first to fourth magnetically free layers and an output range of the magnetic sensor, wherein the angular range satisfies a specific linear relationship between the magnetization direction and the output of the magnetic sensor, and selecting a magnetic sensor that satisfies required conditions for the angular range and the output range from among the magnetic sensors.

  • Publication number: 20220128345
    Abstract: Magnetic sensor assembly 1 has first member 10 having first to third magnetic sensors 13A to 13C, and second member 20 having first to third magnets 22A to 22C. Second member 20 can be moved in X and Y directions and can be rotated about a Z axis relative to first member 10. Output of first to third magnetic sensors 13A to 13C monotonously changes. A change of the output of first magnetic sensor and a change of the output of second magnetic sensor are different from each other. First to third magnets are positioned on first to third straight lines L1 to L3. A first angle that is formed between first straight line L1 and X axis, a second angle that is formed between second straight line L2 and X axis, and a third angle that is formed between third straight line L3 and Y axis are same.

  • Publication number: 20210105544
    Abstract: A screen of a measurement data input device includes a reference value display portion, a measurement data display portion in which a candidate of an actual measured value is displayed with a position of at least a least significant digit in a blank state, and a numerical value selection portion in which a numerical value at least corresponding to the least significant digit in a difference between a reference value and the actual measured value is displayed so as to be selectable and designatable from a numerical value display array. The input device displays a numerical value corresponding to addition of the numerical value at least corresponding to the least significant digit designated and the reference value in the digit position in the blank state in the measurement data display portion, and outputs all digits of the actual measured value.
