  • Patent number: 7479105
    Abstract: To control the erection of a penis 10, the male sex organ, as desired, an electromagnetic valve 18 is connected to a penile vein 17 of the penis 10, the male sex organ, and ON-OFF control of this electromagnetic valve 18 is performed by a control unit 42 embedded in the body in the vicinity of the penis 10. When an external signal is supplied by a commander 54, the control unit 42 closes the electromagnetic valve 18, suppresses outflow of blood from the spongy body 21, 22, and thereby maintains the erection state of the penis 10.

  • Patent number: 5581360
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for dubbing a digital video signal on a record medium wherein the digital video signal includes variable-length codes arranged in a fixed-length word format. The variable-length codes are separated from the fixed-length word format data. Error codes indicating errors in the separated variable-length codes are provided. The separated variable-length codes together with the error codes are formed into new data blocks having a fixed-length word format and the new data blocks are recorded on a record medium.

  • Patent number: 5510903
    Abstract: In a digital video tape recorder which employs discrete cosine transformation and variable length coding for compressing the data to be recorded, the necessity of an additional signal line for transmission of information incidental to the principal data is eliminated, and a processing margin is obtained in track units upon variable speed reproduction and the like. The digital video tape recorder samples an NTSC signal at a ratio of 4:1:1 or 4:2:0, transforms the sample data for each block of 8.times.8 data by DCT, encodes the transformed data into variable length codes so that 30 DCT blocks constitute a buffering unit having a fixed length to compress the data, and segmentally records the video signal obtained by the data compression divisionally in 10 tracks for each frame. In the digital video tape recorder, the frequency of a signal processing clock signal used for data compression is selected to be equal to 192/143 times the frequency of 13.

  • Patent number: 5152271
    Abstract: Fuel is pumped and supplied to an injector which injects the fuel in the form of mist. The quantity of fuel injected from the nozzle is regulated by quantity control means. The control means is comprised of a control valve, which is disposed on the injection hole of the injector for controlling the area of the injection hole. When the control valve has sufficient stroke to close the injection hole, the valve serves not only as a control valve, but also as a timing control valve. The movement or stroke of the control valve is accomplished by an actuator which is controlled by electrical control means, for example a microcomputer, to enable a precise injection of fuel and an ideal combustion.

  • Patent number: 4627403
    Abstract: Fuel is held under high pressure by an accumulator which is connected with injecting nozzles by respective fuel pipes. The fuel pipes are each provided with a timing control valve and a quantity control valve, and these valves are controlled by an electric control apparatus. The control apparatus controls the timing valve in response to the angular position of the engine and controls the quantity control valve in response to the engine load, whereby the injecting nozzle injects the proper quantity of fuel at the proper moment.
