  • Patent number: 8482081
    Abstract: A high-performance semiconductor apparatus which can be easily introduced into the MOS process, reduces the leakage current (electric field strength) between the emitter and the base, and is insusceptible to noise or surge voltage, and a manufacturing method of the semiconductor apparatus. The emitter 111 is formed by performing the ion implantation twice by using the conductive film (109) as a mask. The second emitter area (111b) is formed by ion implantation of a low impurity density impurity ion, and the first emitter area (111a) is formed by ion implantation of a high impurity density impurity ion. As a result, the low impurity density second emitter area is formed in the circumference of the emitter 111, which lowers the electric field strength, and reduces the leakage current. Also the conductive film is connected with the emitter electrode (116), which makes the apparatus insusceptible to noise.

  • Patent number: 7820571
    Abstract: A multi-layer woven or knitted fabric exhibiting reversibly changeable air permeability, which contains reversibly crimping cellulose acetate fibers exhibiting a percentage of crimp of less than 10% at a humidity of 95% or above and a percentage of crimp of 20% or above at a humidity of 45% or below and which has a basis weight of 100 to 350 g/m2. When water content of the fabric is enhanced by the absorption of water or moisture, the air permeability of the fabric increases to inhibit in-clothes stuffiness or stickiness due to sweat and in-clothes temperature rise, while when the fabric has discharged the water into the outside environment, the air permeability of the fabric decreases to the original one to prevent the body temperature from lowering excessively because of the heat of vaporization and thus keep the in-clothes environment comfortable.

  • Patent number: 7422302
    Abstract: As a replacement cartridge is moved closer to a wireless communication section provided on the housing of a printer, information stored in a non-volatile memory of the replacement cartridge is acquired by the wireless communication section. A CPU of the printer compares the amount of ink remaining in the replacement cartridge, obtained from the acquired information, with the amount of an ink remaining in a cartridge on a carriage which retains an ink of the same color as the color of the ink in the replacement cartridge. In the case where the ink remaining amount in the replacement cartridge is larger, the CPU decides that the cartridge should be replaced and moves the carriage in such a way that the target cartridge for replacement is positioned directly under an opening portion in the housing. This makes the cartridge replacement task easier.

  • Patent number: 7024264
    Abstract: The present invention aims at providing a method for designing a glass-plate-aimed bending mold making use of a 3-dimensional CAD application for solid models, in a short time with simple operations, by utilizing a previously designed solid model. To this end, there is modified a ring frame of a solid model of a mold stored in an existing-solid-model storing part, such that the ring frame conforms to the shape of a new glass plate, by glass shape replacing means. By using modified parameter reflecting means, the modification of the modifiable parameters inherited from the existing solid-model is reflected to the modified solid model, to thereby optimize the modifiable parameters of a new solid model.

  • Publication number: 20050268661
    Abstract: A method for manufactuing a curved glass plate includes the steps of mounting a single glass plate blank heated to a deformable temperature in a heating furnace on a lower mold configured for supporting a lower face peripheral edge of the glass plate blank outside the heating furnace, pressing a curvature forming upper mold which bulges downwardly against an upper face of the glass plate to form a curvature in the glass plate and coolign the curved glass plate as being mounted on the lower mold by natural cooling or near-natural cooling, thereby to obtain the curved glass plate as a final product. During the step of cooling the glass plate on the lower mold, the lower mold is heated whereas an inner portion of the lower face of the glass plate adjacent the portion of the glass plate placed in contact with the lower mold is forcibly cooled.
