  • Publication number: 20200161737
    Abstract: A distributor and a synthesizer with low loss are disclosed. In one example, a distributor/synthesizer has a distribution line that distributes a path from an input branch unit connected to an external transmission line on an input side into n-distributed paths. An output branch unit divides the n-distributed paths into an internal side and an external transmission line on an output side. On the internal side, a phase adjustment unit is arranged between the output branch unit and a coupling terminal, and adjusts the phase. A phase rotation amount from the input branch unit to the output branch unit of each of the n-distributed paths is ?/2 [rad], and a phase rotation amount from the output branch unit to the coupling terminal is ? [rad] or a real number multiple of ? [rad]. The present disclosure can, for example, be applied to an FEM of a signal processing device.

  • Publication number: 20200098031
    Abstract: A product recommending apparatus includes an obtaining unit, a classification unit, and a controller. The obtaining unit obtains a purchase history indicating information on a product that a user has purchased, and a promotion history indicating information on a product promoted to a user. The classification unit classifies, using the purchase history and the promotion history, each product into one of a first group of items purchased but not promoted, a second group of items purchased and promoted, a third group of items not purchased nor promoted, and a fourth group of items not purchased but promoted. The controller outputs, using a result of classification done by the classification unit, an item that would not be purchased if not promoted but would be purchased if promoted as an item to be recommended to a user.
