  • Patent number: 10347877
    Abstract: Presented is battery packaging material which is made of a laminate including, as the essentials, a base material layer, a metal layer and a sealant layer in this order. When a product obtained by packaging a battery element with the packaging material in a hermetically sealed state through heat sealing is heated, the packaging material delaminates at least at a part of the interface between the metal layer and the outside surface of the sealant layer with the hermetically sealed state being kept, and thereafter works so as to make the product unsealed.

  • Patent number: 10348248
    Abstract: Improvement in linearity is achieved at low costs in a power amplifier module employing an envelope tracking system. The power amplifier module includes a first power amplifier circuit that amplifies a radio frequency signal and that outputs a first amplified signal, a second power amplifier circuit that amplifies the first amplified signal on the basis of a source voltage varying depending on amplitude of the radio frequency signal and that outputs a second amplified signal, and a matching circuit that includes first and second capacitors connected in series between the first and second power amplifier circuit and an inductor connected between a node between the first and second capacitors and a ground and that decreases a gain of the first power amplifier circuit as the source voltage of the second power amplifier circuit increases.

  • Patent number: 9857208
    Abstract: A measurement device according to one aspect of the present invention includes a first controller configured to output a control signal and a second controller configured to perform a first control and then to perform a second control based on the control signal output from the first controller. The control signal designates both an input signal and a calibration signal to be converted into a digital input signal and a digital calibration signal, respectively. The input signal is input from an outside of the measurement device. The calibration signal is previously prepared. The first control is for selecting the input signal and converting the selected input signal into the digital input signal.
