  • Patent number: 7408475
    Abstract: In a power supply monitoring device, a power supply voltage monitoring portion always monitors a power supply voltage supplied to a monitored circuit and outputs a voltage reduction signal when detecting that the power supply voltage is reduced below a predetermined threshold (e.g. a second voltage higher than a voltage guaranteeing a normal operation of the monitored circuit and lower than a rated voltage). A monitoring controller having received the voltage reduction signal determines whether or not an operational malfunction has occurred in the monitored circuit by comparing operation data of the monitored circuit with reference data of the monitoring controller itself. Also, the monitoring controller executes recovery processing (reset processing or reference data overwrite processing) suitable for the monitored circuit referring to a prestored recovery processing type specific to the monitored circuit when detecting an operational malfunction of the monitored circuit.

  • Patent number: 7292417
    Abstract: The magnetoresistance effect element is of a multilayered structure having at least magnetic layers and an intermediate layer of an insulating material, a semiconductor or an antiferromagnetic material against the magnetic layers, and the magnetoresistance effect element has terminals formed at least on the opposite magnetic layers, respectively, so that a current flows in the intermediate layer. The film surfaces of all the magnetic layers constituting the magnetoresistance effect element are opposed substantially at right angles to the recording surface of a magnetic recording medium. Therefore, the area of the magnetic layers facing the recording surface of the magnetic recording medium can be extremely reduced, and thus the magnetic field from a very narrow region of the high-density recorded magnetic recording medium can be detected by the current which has a tunneling characteristic and passes through the intermediate layer.
