  • Patent number: 6329673
    Abstract: When a driving circuit for a liquid-crystal display apparatus, especially a switching section and an input-voltage conversion circuit for an analog operation, is formed of circuit devices having large variations in characteristics, such as thin-film transistors, these device-characteristic variations adversely affect circuit operations, and a video-signal switching section may reduce image quality. In the input-voltage conversion circuit, circuit malfunction may occur. In an active-matrix liquid-crystal display apparatus, thin-film transistors having a gate length of 2L and a gate width of 2W are used as circuit devices constituting a driving circuit for driving pixels, especially a circuit portion handling an analog signal, where L indicates the shortest gate length determined from the dielectric strength and W indicates the gate width determined by a ratio of W/L based on the purpose of use according to the shortest gate length L.

  • Publication number: 20010029449
    Abstract: A voice recognizing apparatus includes a filter bank for deriving feature parameters of voice from a microphone and a filter bank for deriving feature parameters of noise represented by an electric signal which is directly inputted to a terminal. The voice parameters and the noise parameters are respectively stored in a voice parameter buffer and a noise parameter buffer. A threshold value for sampling the voice parameters is set to be changed in accordance with a noise level for each frame. From a series of the voice parameters exceeding the threshold value, a series of the noise parameters corresponding thereto are subtracted so that only a voice parameter pattern can be obtained. In a recognition mode, the voice pattern is compared with a reference pattern to recognize the voice from the microphone. In addition, in a registration mode, the voice pattern is registered as a reference pattern.
