  • Patent number: 8713382
    Abstract: A control apparatus controlling testing of a memory under test that includes one or more row repair memory blocks and column repair memory blocks. The control apparatus comprises a counting section that sequentially receives test results respectively indicating pass/fail of a plurality of test blocks of the memory under test, and sequentially counts, for each first-type memory block, which is a row-oriented memory block or a column-oriented memory block, a fail memory block number among second-type memory blocks; a selecting section that selects memory blocks first-type memory blocks for which the fail memory block number exceeds a reference value, such that the number of selected memory blocks is no greater than the number of first-type repair memory blocks of the memory under test; and a test control section that masks test blocks among the memory blocks selected by the selecting section and causes further testing of the memory under test.

  • Publication number: 20120247518
    Abstract: In a thin plate member washing apparatus, tap water showering down from water flow holes of a water flow plate makes contact with outer rotary blades and inner rotary blades provided in a rotary supporting member, thereby rotating the rotary supporting member. Moreover, the tap water falling on a mesh member held by a mesh member holding portion flows over a front surface and a back surface of the mesh member based on a centrifugal force due to rotation of the mesh member and removes medicinal fluid residue deposited on the mesh member. The medicinal fluid residue removed from the mesh member is directly carried by the tap water and discharged to the outside of the thin plate member washing apparatus through a fluid outlet opening.
