  • Publication number: 20060047451
    Abstract: A circuit diagram display apparatus displays a plurality of logic circuit diagrams. An associating unit associates the logic circuits based on at least any one of identification information, structural information, logical equivalence information, and external designated information about the logic circuits. A display format changing unit changes a display format between a side-by-side format and one-below-the-other format. A display controller performs control to display a target point in the logic circuit diagram in the same position before and after the display format is changed.

  • Patent number: 5852757
    Abstract: An electrophotographic image forming apparatus including a toner circulating mechanism for recovering a residual toner scraped from a photosensitive drum to a developing device. The developing device includes a housing for defining a toner chamber, a developing roller rotatably mounted in the housing, an agitator rotatably mounted in the housing and provided in the toner chamber, and a partition member mounted to the housing to define a carrier chamber between the partition member and the developing roller. The toner circulating mechanism directly returns the residual toner scraped from the photosensitive drum to the toner chamber in the developing device. The toner chamber may contain a foreign matter removing device. The partition member may have various shapes.

  • Patent number: 3988654
    Abstract: A miniature brushless motor in which driving coils and magnetically responsive elements such as Hall elements are disposed around a permanent magnet rotor. An output appears from the successive Hall elements detecting the rotating position of the permanent magnet rotor so as to control the current supplied to the driving coils. In the brushless motor, the portion of the permanent magnet rotor opposed to the Hall elements is magnetized through an angle which is selected to be smaller than the angle through which the rotor portion opposed to the driving coils is magnetized.
