  • Publication number: 20200176192
    Abstract: A solid electrolytic capacitor includes a capacitor element, an anode lead frame, a cathode lead frame, and an exterior member. The capacitor element includes an anode part and a cathode part. The cathode lead frame includes a cathode mount, a cathode connection part connected to the cathode mount, and a cathode terminal connected to the cathode connection part. The cathode lead frame bends in one direction at a first boundary between the cathode mount and the cathode connection part, and further bends in another direction at a second boundary between the cathode connection part and the cathode terminal. At least one of the cathode mount and the cathode terminal has a projection at an edge of the at least one of the cathode mount and the cathode terminal. The edge is at a side close to the cathode connection part. The projection projects in a first direction along which the anode part and the cathode part are aligned.

  • Patent number: 10354073
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, an information processing device includes a processor, a nonvolatile memory, a designation unit, and a controller. The nonvolatile memory stores the first software and the second software which is used as substitute for the first software. The designation unit designates software to be executed by the processor at a boot. The controller protects an area of the nonvolatile memory storing the first software from being written while the first software is executed by the processor. When third software is executed by the processor, the third software verifies the second software. When the second software is legal in a result of verifying by the third software, the designation unit designates the second software.
