  • Patent number: 5038255
    Abstract: A vehicle lamp is mounted on vehicles such as automobiles. The lamp has an inner chamber constructed by a lamp housing and a lens, respectively having long shapes. In the chamber, there is a long light source fixing face member on which plural light sources are fixed. All light sources or electric bulbs are neatly fitted to convex or concave guide portions. Circuit patterns are printed on an inner face of the housing. Terminals of the light sources come into contact with the circuit patterns. The housing is made of particular synthetic resin having a good heat conductivity, so that no heat is accumulated in the chamber.

  • Patent number: 4868719
    Abstract: In a rear combination lamp assembly for a vehicle, a plurality of LEDs capable of being turned on and off independently of each other are mounted on a first printed circuit board. A plate-like lens element and a second printed circuit board are arranged with the first printed circuit board located between them. A control circuitry is mounted on the second printed circuit board, for selectively turning on and off the LEDs to display various patterns on a matrix display formed by the LEDs. The first printed circuit board, the lens element and the second printed circuit board are held in a united fashion.

  • Patent number: 4652875
    Abstract: Method and apparatus for use with a pager having a battery-saving function. The pager can receive calls addressed to it even when the pager fails to catch the preamble of the broadcast signal. The broadcast signal is received by a receiver which outputs a series of digital codes corresponding to the received signal. Changes in the level of the digital codes are detected by a change detection device which outputs pulses corresponding to the changes. A synchronization device receives the pulses and provides bit-synchronizing clock pulses therefrom. A counter then counts the number of clock pulses. The counter includes a gate signal generating device for dividing the clock pulses into first and second time-based segments. A comparison device then issues a command signal when the number of clock pulses in the first segment exceeds a first threshold value. The comparison device also compares the number of clock pulses counted in the second segment with a second threshold value when the command signal is issued.

  • Patent number: 4591954
    Abstract: A lamp device for projecting a brake light signal on a motor vehicle comprising a lamp base in the form of a staircase having vertical and horizontal faces, a plurality of light sources mounted on at least one of the vertical faces of the lamp base and a light-transmissive casing having a staircase shape generally complimentary to the shape of the lamp base and overlaying the lamp base. The lamp device further comprises means for attaching same to the rear window of a motor vehicle.
