  • Patent number: 7472206
    Abstract: A switched fabric is provided in a digital control system and data communication is performed using DMA transfer. A communication control unit is provided for controlling the switched fabric. The communication control unit determines the priorities of data to be transferred according to their types. When the communication control unit receives a request for higher-priority DMA transfer during DMA transfer, it suspends the current DMA transfer and performs the higher-priority DMA transfer. After completion of the higher-priority DMA transfer, the communication control unit resumes the suspended DMA transfer.

  • Patent number: 7016749
    Abstract: A product design CAD data reconstruction unit 50 reconstructs product design CAD data used for product evaluation regarding an initial design so as to fulfill restrictive conditions obtained from the product evaluation based on a product structure for the initial design. The reconstructed product design CAD data is stored in a product design CAD data database 90. Upon reception of a corrected design obtained by correcting the initial design, the product design CAD data for the initial design is read from the product design CAAD data database 90, and the product design CAD data is corrected along a design surface of the corrected design.

  • Patent number: 6995528
    Abstract: A linear motor apparatus which drives a mover of a linear motor in a stable manner, by using only information on change of relative position, without using an absolute value sensor. The apparatus has a coil array of plural phases of coils and a magnet relatively movable to the coil array, plural drivers, at least one of which being provided for each phase, to feed a current to all the same phase coils of the coil array, a sensor for measuring a change of relative position of the magnet moved by the current to the coil array, and a controller to determine the polarity of the current applied to the same phase coils based on the change of the relative position measured by the sensor, and apply a drive current to drive the magnet in a desired direction to the same phase coils.
