  • Publication number: 20200371236
    Abstract: In a distance measurement apparatus, a light emitter emits pulse-like light. A light receiver receives reflected light of the emitted light and converts the received light to an electrical signal. An AD converter converts the electrical signal to a digital value at a predetermined sampling rate to generate a conversion data series. An interpolation processor upsamples the outputted conversion data series by inserting interpolation data therein to generate an up-data series. A distance calculator calculates a distance to an object that reflects light using a signal waveform indicated by the up-data series. The interpolation processor inserts the interpolation data having an interpolation value between pieces of data belonging to the conversion data series, and smooths the data series in which the interpolation data is inserted using a low-pass filter that has characteristics in which waveform distortion caused by ringing does not occur.

  • Patent number: 9661793
    Abstract: In mounting position correction of detecting a position of printed solder, calculating a positional-shift amount between a position of an electrode and the position of the printed solder, and correcting a mounting position based on the calculated positional-shift amount, when a correction amount based on the calculated positional-shift amount exceeds a limit value which indicates an upper limit of the correction amount which is defined and allowed in mounting information, the electronic component is mounted on the mounting position which is corrected by considering the limit value as the correction amount. Accordingly, it is possible to appropriately employ mounting position correction by considering a solder printing position as a reference in accordance with the degree of printing position shift, and to obtain an expected joint quality improvement effect.

  • Patent number: 9255503
    Abstract: An exhaust device includes a plurality of independent exhaust passages connected to an exhaust port of one cylinder or a plurality of cylinders that are non-sequential in exhaust order, and a mixing pipe into which exhaust that has passed through the respective independent exhaust passages flows. The downstream ends of the respective independent exhaust passages are connected in a bundled form to the upstream end of the mixing pipe. A cavity expansion chamber is disposed in an exhaust passage downstream from the mixing pipe. The cavity expansion chamber is disposed in a position (at a distance L2) such that, in the intermediate speed range, a negative pressure wave generated due to an exhaust pressure wave generated by opening an exhaust valve being reflected by the cavity expansion chamber reaches the exhaust port during an overlap period of the exhaust valve and an intake valve of the cylinder.
