  • Publication number: 20130107023
    Abstract: In a non-contact electric power transmission system that electrically charges a device in a non-contact fashion, a transmitter includes excitation and resonance elements, and transmits power from a specified storage pocket under a control signal from a transmission controller. The transmission controller, upon insertion of an object being detected, uses information from an output detector to determine the object to be a destination device to which power is to be transmitted, and controls the corresponding transmitter circuit to transmit the power. The information from the output detector can include a transmission rate, or a differential between a load modulation period of a receiver and that of the transmitter. The transmission controller acquires charge information on the receiver inserted in one of the storage pockets to control the power transmission. This simplifies the device to be charged for non-contact device charging, and reduces the device in dimensions and weight.

  • Patent number: 8010792
    Abstract: A copyright of a content is protected by preventing creation of illegal copies of the content and the content is prevented from being transmitted beyond a range of personal use in a process to transmit the content through a LAN. Before transmission of a content, a content transmission apparatus and a content reception apparatus perform a determination of authentication information available in a predetermined command accompanying authentication information, or an authentication determination based on a time until reception of a response to a predetermined command request accompanying predetermined authentication information. If the authentication is unsuccessful, the requested content is not transmitted to the content reception apparatus. With such arrangement, it is possible to effectively protect a copyright when a content is transmitted by way of a network.
