  • Patent number: 10707868
    Abstract: A proximity sensor includes a transmission circuit that supplies a current to each of detection coils, a reception circuit that detects voltages generated at both ends of the coils or currents flowing in the coils due to the supply of the current for each of the coils, a control unit that senses the presence or position of a detection object using a detection result of the reception circuit, and an output unit that outputs a sensing result of the control unit. The control unit extracts a first component caused by a mounting fitting for mounting the proximity sensor on a support member and a second component caused by the detection object from the detection result of the reception circuit. The control unit compensates the second component using the first component. The control unit senses the presence or position of the detection object on the basis of the compensated second component.

  • Publication number: 20200105294
    Abstract: A harmony generation device and a program for the same which can generate a natural harmony sound are provided. The harmony generation device (1) generates first and second harmony tones to which a voice input through a microphone (M) is shifted in pitch by first and second shift amounts calculated based on both the voice input through the microphone (M) and a chord determined from performance information of an electric guitar (G) input through an input device (34). That is, since the first and second harmony tones can be tones based on the chord of the electric guitar (G) that changes from moment to moment, the harmony sound obtained by mixing the first and second harmony tones with the voice input through the microphone (M) can be a natural harmony sound that is rich in variation according to the chord of the electric guitar (G).

  • Patent number: 10527747
    Abstract: A proximity sensor includes a transmission circuit that periodically supplies an excitation current in a pulse form to a detection coil for generating a magnetic field, a reception circuit that detects voltages or currents generated at both ends of the detection coil by the periodic supply of the excitation current, and a controller that detects presence or a position of the detection body by utilizing a time series signal obtained by the detection. The controller acquires a factor that influences the detection of the detection body in a first period of the time series signal. The controller compensates a signal in a second period of the time series signal by the factor. The controller detects the presence or the position of the detection body on the basis of a signal after the compensation.

  • Patent number: 8455748
    Abstract: A pitch detection device in which a frequency can be lowered after having maintained both a pitch error accuracy and a response time at practical values to reduce current consumption. Because a number of times of cumulative addition is changed in response to a pitch of a measured signal, a cumulative addition time sum equals or exceeds a constant T_SUM_MIN. Accordingly, a pitch error accuracy of the measured signal achieves a required error accuracy. Furthermore, a frequency of the clock signal is decided using a numerical formula (6) and a numerical formula (7) so that the constant T_SUM_MIN does not exceed a required response time. Accordingly, a response time is within the required response time regardless of whether the frequency of the measured signal is lowered.
