  • Patent number: 10964444
    Abstract: The present invention aims to provide a resin composition which can provide a molded article excellent in insulation and showing a low relative permittivity and which causes no melt fracture even when extrusion-molded at a high shear rate. The resin composition of the present invention includes an aromatic polyether ketone resin (I) and a fluororesin (II). The fluororesin (II) is a copolymer of tetrafluoroethylene and a perfluoro ethylenically unsaturated compound represented by the following formula (1): CF2?CF—Rf1??(1) wherein Rf1 represents —CF3 or —ORf2; and Rf2 represents a C1-C5 perfluoroalkyl group. The aromatic polyether ketone resin (I) and the fluororesin (II) satisfy a melt viscosity ratio (I)/(II) of not lower than 0.001 but lower than 0.3.

  • Publication number: 20210012843
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a voltage generation circuit includes a first boost circuit, a voltage division circuit, a first detection circuit, a capacitor and a first switch. The first boost circuit outputs a first voltage. The voltage division circuit divides the first voltage. The first detection circuit is configured to detect a first monitor voltage supplied to the first input terminal, based on a reference voltage which is supplied to a second input terminal of the first detection circuit, and to control an operation of the first boost circuit. The capacitor is connected between an output terminal of the first boost circuit and the first input terminal of the first detection circuit. The first switch cuts off a connection between the capacitor and the first detection circuit, based on an output signal of the first detection circuit, until the first voltage is output from the first boost circuit.
