  • Patent number: 6660354
    Abstract: The present invention provides a release material formed by irradiating a release material precursor having a shear storage modulus of about 1×102 to about 3×106 Pa at 20° C. and a frequency of 1 Hz, wherein the release material has a contact angle of 15° or more, measured using a mixed solution of methanol and water (volume ratio: 90/10) having a wet tension of 25.4 mN/m. The release material of the present invention has improved anchoring to certain substrates, ensuring relatively low release strength from certain pressure-sensitive adhesives, particularly even after the exposure to a high temperature. Thus, the release materials are capable of allowing the pressure-sensitive adhesive to maintain stable residual adhesion strength.

  • Patent number: 6034963
    Abstract: A multiple network protocol encoder/decoder comprising a network protocol layer, data handler, O.S. State machine, and memory manager state machines implemented at a hardware gate level. Network packets are received from a physical transport level mechanism by the network protocol layer state machine which decodes network protocols such as TCP, IP, User Datagram Protocol (UDP), PPP, and Raw Socket concurrently as each byte is received. Each protocol handler parses and strips header information immediately from the packet, requiring no intermediate memory. The resulting data are passed to the data handler which consists of data state machines that decode data formats such as email, graphics, Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), Java, and Hypertext Markup Language (HTML).

  • Patent number: 5425834
    Abstract: An apparatus for feeding a long adhesive sheet material protected with parting films on both side into a forming machine by a specified portion each without any manual labor. An adhesive sheet material (10) let off through pinch rolls (102, 102) in a sheet cutter (100) is measured of its length by an encoder, and is cut in a preset length. A cut segment (15) of the adhesive sheet material is conveyed by a sheet cutter conveyor (200) to a specified position, where it is stacked up on a stacking truck (400) waiting above a weighing scale (500) by a suction and transfer device (300). When stacking of segments (15) is over, the weight is measured by the weighing scale (500). When this measurement agrees with the necessary weight, the specified number of segments (15) are carried up to the waiting position of a charger (600) by the stacking truck (400), and are charged into the specified position of a forming machine (20) by the charging machine (600).
