  • Publication number: 20090001932
    Abstract: A power-transmission-side control circuit causes a power transmission device to perform temporary power transmission when a switch provided in a power-transmission-side instrument has been turned ON, and performs ID authentication based on ID authentication information. The power-transmission-side control circuit detects the presence or absence of a foreign object during normal power transmission by monitoring a change in induced voltage in a primary coil, causes the power transmission device to stop temporary power transmission when the ID authentication information from the power reception device has not been received within a given period of time, causes the power transmission device to stop temporary power transmission when the ID authentication has failed, and causes the power transmission device to stop normal power transmission when removal, a metal foreign object, a takeover state, or a full-charge state has been detected after normal power transmission has started.

  • Publication number: 20080197956
    Abstract: A coil unit includes a planar coil, a magnetic member that is provided under the planar coil, a magnetic flux leakage prevention member that is provided under the magnetic member, and a heat sink that is provided under the magnetic flux leakage prevention member. The magnetic flux leakage prevention member is electrically insulated from the heat sink. The magnetic flux leakage prevention member is insulated from the heat sink using a double-sided adhesive tape, for example. Since the heat sink dissipates heat generated from the planar coil and is electrically insulated from the magnetic flux leakage prevention member, the heat sink does not function as a member which receives a magnetic flux.

  • Patent number: 7167341
    Abstract: A depression is formed on the surface of a lower magnetic pole layer in a thin film magnetic head. A lower auxiliary magnetic pole is defined in the lower magnetic pole layer between the depression and a medium-opposed surface of a head slider. The depression is filled up with a non-magnetic material. When the thin film magnetic head is to be formed, no magnetic layer is formed on the lower magnetic pole layer for forming the lower auxiliary magnetic pole. A dry process such as sputtering and vapor-deposition can be employed to form the lower magnetic pole layer, so that a wider choice can be provided for the material of the lower magnetic pole layer and the lower auxiliary magnetic pole.
