  • Publication number: 20220197331
    Abstract: Disclosed is a data processing device including: at least one processor that executes a program stored in at least one memory; and a timer that repeatedly and continuously counts a setting time. The processor acquires data indicating a battery state, judges occurrence of an event, executes processing based on data acquired in the setting time when judging that the event has not occurred between start and end of counting for one setting time, and executes at least one of a first operation of performing the processing based on data from the counting start to a stop timing based on the event occurrence and a second operation of performing the processing based on data from a start timing based on an event occurrence timing to end of counting for one setting time when judging that the event has occurred between the start and the end of the counting.

  • Publication number: 20220179467
    Abstract: A power supply circuit includes a power supply which supplies DC power to a load, a switch which is selectively operable to (i) cause a short-circuit to occur between a DC power supply and an input terminal of the power supply and (ii) open a connection between the DC power supply and the input terminal of the power supply, a sensor which measures a temperature and a processor configured to control the switch to open the connection in response to a decision that the DC power is not being supplied to the load even when the switch is being controlled to cause the short-circuit to occur, and control the switch to cause the short-circuit to occur after a predetermined time elapses after controlling the switch to open the connection in response to the decision. The predetermined time is set based on the temperature measured by the sensor.

  • Patent number: 10937589
    Abstract: In a coil component, in an upper coil portion, a winding end portion constituting an end portion is connected to a lead-out conductor. Accordingly, the lead-out conductor can absorb heat from the winding end portion and can dissipate heat to the outside via a terminal electrode. Moreover, the lead-out conductor is formed to cover a winding adjacent portion. Accordingly, heat can also be absorbed from the winding adjacent portion and can be dissipated to the outside via the terminal electrode. That is, in the coil component described above, since the lead-out conductor absorbs heat not only from the winding end portion but also from the winding adjacent portion, improvement of heat dissipation properties is realized in the coil component.

  • Publication number: 20210005377
    Abstract: A coil component includes: a first magnetic resin layer in a lower area; a second magnetic resin layer in an inner diameter area surrounded by a coil pattern, an outer peripheral area that surrounds the coil pattern, and an upper area; and an insulating gap layer between the first and second magnetic resin layers. A part of the insulating gap layer positioned between the first magnetic resin layer and a part of the second magnetic resin layer positioned in the inner diameter area is curved in the axial direction. A magnetic substrate need not be used. The insulating gap layer is provided, allowing the insulating gap layer to function as a magnetic gap. The insulating gap layer is curved in the axial direction, so that a contact area between the insulating gap layer and the first and second magnetic resin layers are increased to enhance adhesion therebetween.
