  • Patent number: 10950472
    Abstract: A ring support is attached to an inner wall surface of a chamber that houses a semiconductor wafer to support a susceptor. When the semiconductor wafer is placed on the susceptor, an inner space of the chamber is separated into an upper space and a lower space. Particles are likely to accumulate on a lower chamber window as a floor part of the chamber. However, since the upper space and the lower space are separated, the semiconductor wafer can be prevented from being contaminated by the particles flowing into the upper space and adhering to a surface of the semiconductor wafer even when the particles on the lower chamber window are blown up by irradiation with flash light.

  • Patent number: 10930154
    Abstract: A driving support system includes a driving support apparatus that receives a information related to a predetermined spot, determines whether or not the predetermined spot is present ahead in a subject vehicle lane in which a subject vehicle is present based on this information, causes an in-car instrument to perform a predetermined operation based on a relative distance between an object present in an adjacent lane and the subject vehicle when the predetermined spot is not present ahead in the subject vehicle lane, and restrains the in-car instrument from performing the predetermined operation when the predetermined spot is present ahead in the subject vehicle lane.

  • Publication number: 20210048699
    Abstract: Provided is a display device including a display panel which allows a curvature portion thereof to be narrowed near a terminal portion even when circuit blocks are arranged in the curvature portion. For a data line in the form of a polyline consisting of a plurality of short straight line segments in a first curvature portion 12a of a display panel 10, as the distance from a terminal portion 16 increases, the slant angle of each straight line segment increases, the number of data lines d decreases, and hence the width of a data line area decreases. Accordingly, the number of unit circuit blocks 70 in a parallel circuit block 80 disposed in a circuit area can be increased by widening the circuit area in proportion to the decrease in the width of the data line area.

  • Patent number: 10924024
    Abstract: A control unit controls an inverter circuit such that a positive voltage and a negative voltage are alternately applied to a primary winding. The control unit controls a cycloconverter so as to allow no power to be transmitted between the cycloconverter and the inverter circuit in a first period including an inversion period during which a voltage of the primary winding has its polarity inverted. The control unit also controls the cycloconverter so as to allow power to be transmitted either in a first direction from the cycloconverter toward the inverter circuit, or in a second direction opposite from the first direction, in a second period different from the first period.
