  • Patent number: 10379307
    Abstract: Provided is an optical-electrical composite cable in which, even if the entire optical-electrical composite cable having an optical fiber routed along flexible flat wiring boards is made thin, the optical fiber is not deformed or damaged by a large bending stress. A pair of the flexible flat wiring boards are disposed on a front surface side and a rear surface side of the optical fiber, and a covering member integrates the entirety thereof. Thus, even if the optical-electrical composite cable is made thin, the cable is not bent with a large curvature without deformation of the optical fiber.

  • Publication number: 20190190176
    Abstract: Even when a connection board has a large thickness tolerance, a stable connection is achieved by absorbing the tolerance so as to stabilize a contact pressure between the connection board and contacts. In a unit in which electrode groups of a connection board are in pressure contact with elastic contacts formed integrally with an inner housing to connect thereto, the inner housing is provided inside an outer case of a card edge connector through an elastic member to be freely movable forward and backward in a thickness direction of the connection board. The positions of the elastic contacts are adjusted by forward or backward moving the inner housing in accordance with the thickness of the connection board inserted into board insertion slots, so a pressure contact force with the elastic contacts is substantially equalized, irrespective of the size of the thickness of the connection board.

  • Publication number: 20180001528
    Abstract: In a molding die, movable die elements are respectively received in die element receiving holes formed in a frame plate. An end surface of the frame plate, which faces a cavity at a location that is other than locations of the die element receiving holes, forms a frame portion compression surface. An end surface of each movable die element, which faces the cavity, forms a split compression surface. Die element drive devices respectively drive the split compression surfaces of the movable die elements. A whole compression plate commonly supports an opposite end part of the frame plate and opposite end parts of the movable die elements, which are opposite from the cavity. When the whole compression plate is moved forward, the whole compression plate integrally drives the frame plate and the movable die elements forward. A whole drive device drives the whole compression plate.

  • Patent number: 9462536
    Abstract: The present invention eliminates a transmission-waiting operation which is unnecessary while accommodating a prioritized traffic. Although a communication station enters a transmission-disallowed state in response to detection of a signal addressed to another station in accordance with medium access control based on CSMA, if the communication station receives a frame transmitted with priority to a local station during the transmission waiting, it cancels the transmission-disallowed state, sends back a frame responding the frame transmitted with priority and effectively operates a transmission prioritized period. The communication station starts a search procedure to perform a processing of evading duplication of the transmission prioritized periods if it judges a possibility of a problem occurring in a time zone in which reception with priority is possible.
