  • Publication number: 20200158562
    Abstract: A data processing device includes a peak detector that detects a peak from a frequency spectrum and a map generator that generates an abnormality map for the frequency spectrum. The abnormality map includes as abnormal components, a frequency of a detected peak of interest and a frequency of a peak that appears together with the peak of interest when the peak of interest is assumed as the peak originating from abnormality. The data processing device includes an abnormal peak extractor that extracts as an abnormal peak, a peak at a frequency that matches with any of the abnormal components included in the abnormality map and a first criterion value calculator that calculates a first criterion value representing occurrence of abnormality corresponding to the abnormality map based on a spectral density of the abnormal peak.

  • Patent number: 10619938
    Abstract: A heat exchange member which does not easily suffer from breakage due to thermal stress by relaxing the thermal stress. The heat exchange member is provided with a honeycomb structure and a covering member. The outer peripheral wall of the honeycomb structure has at least one slit. The covering member covers the honeycomb structure so that the heat exchange can be carried out between a first fluid and a second fluid. The heat exchange member performs heat exchange by means of the outer peripheral wall of the honeycomb structure and the covering member in the state where the first fluid passing through the cells and the second fluid passing through the outside of the covering member are not mixed with each other.

  • Patent number: 10234209
    Abstract: To provide a heat exchanger that can control temperatures of fluids to be heat-exchanged. A heat exchanger 30 includes a honeycomb structure 1, a second fluid flow through portion 26 located at an outer periphery side of the honeycomb structure 1 serving as a flow passage for a second fluid, and a third fluid flow through portion 27 located at an outer periphery side of the second fluid flow through portion 26 serving as a flow passage for a third fluid. Cells 3 of the honeycomb structure 1 serve as a first fluid flow through portion 25 through which the first fluid passes. With the heat exchanger 30, the first fluid, the second fluid, and the third fluid can be heat-exchanged without being mixed with one another. Constituting the fluid flow passage with three flow passages allows controlling temperatures of two fluids to be heat-exchanged by the residual fluid.

  • Patent number: 8562323
    Abstract: An imprint apparatus is disclosed that forms, by pressing a resin applied onto a substrate and a mold against each other, a pattern on the substrate. The imprint apparatus includes a substrate stage that holds the substrate, and a control unit for controlling the position of the stage by outputting a manipulating variable on the basis of a position error between a position of the stage which has been measured by position measurement unit and a target position. The control unit reduces a ratio of the manipulating variable to the position error while the substrate and the mold are in contact with each other until mold release.

  • Publication number: 20120307530
    Abstract: In a normal operation, a switch control circuit in a control IC for switching power supply operates to control an opening and closing operation of a switching element. When a remote control receiving circuit issues an instruction to perform a standby operation, an energy saving switch is opened in a period elapsed until an output voltage of a rectification/smoothing circuit for secondary output winding falls below a predetermined value. Thus, an operation of a switch control circuit in the control IC for switching power supply is stopped such that the opening and closing operation of the switching element is not performed. In this case, the remote control receiving circuit and a timer microcomputer are operable with electric power based on a voltage at a smoothing capacitor in the rectification/smoothing circuit for secondary output winding.

  • Publication number: 20120164154
    Abstract: It is disclosed here that insulin sensitivity in a human or non-human animal can be increased by reducing stearoyl-CoA desaturase-1 (SCD1) activity in the animal. This provides a new tool for treating and preventing type 2 diabetes. Also disclosed are methods for identifying agents that can increase insulin sensitivity in a human or non-human animal through determining the agents' effects on SCD1 activity.
