  • Patent number: 6914932
    Abstract: Received level measurement circuit 1071 performs received level measurement using input despread traffic channel data. Received level measurement circuit 1072 performs received level measurement using input despread common control channel data. These received levels are respectively output from received level measurement circuits 1071 and 1072 to correlation circuit 1075. Correlation circuit 175 first performs correlation calculation between paths in respective profiles of the traffic channel and common control channel each generated based on respective received level. Based on the result of the correlation calculation, path selection is performed to determine a reception timing.

  • Publication number: 20050046866
    Abstract: A surface inspection apparatus for inspecting a surface of an object to be inspected, includes: a projecting optical system which projects an inspection light to the object surface via a reference surface; a pick up unit which picks up surface interference fringes formed by reflected light from the reference surface and reflected light from the object surface; and an arithmetic unit which calculates a shape of the surface of the object based on the picked up interference fringes. The projecting optical system includes a laser light source that emits, as the inspection light, pulsed laser light having a pulse width and a pulse quiescent time capable of preventing formation of rear face interference fringes which are formed by the reflected light from the object surface and reflected light caused by the inspection light being reflected from its rear face, the object allowing the inspection light to pass therethrough.

  • Patent number: 6829291
    Abstract: A correlation calculating section 103 calculates correlation values from a baseband signal from a radio receiving section 102. A delay profile generating section 105 generates a delay profile based on the correlation value from a selecting section 104. A peak detecting section 106 detects a peak correlation value and a peak phase from the delay profile, outputs the peak correlation value to a weighting section 109, and also outputs the peak phase to a correlation phase adjusting section 107 and a demodulation control section 111. A correlation phase adjusting section 107 adjusts a phase of a spreading code auto-correlation value in accordance with the peak phase, and the weighting section 109 adjusts amplitude of the spreading code auto-correlation value subjected to phase adjustment in accordance with the peak correlation value. A correlation eliminating section 110 eliminates the spreading code auto-correlation values subjected to phase adjustment from the correlation values.

  • Publication number: 20040172106
    Abstract: An ablation apparatus capable of obtaining intensity distribution in a concave shape at an irradiation surface even when a laser beam goes through a small opening of an aperture to be formed into a small spot. In the apparatus, a laser light source emits the beam which effects ablation to the object, an irradiation optical system directs and irradiates the beam onto an irradiation surface of the object, an aperture in the system has an opening, a convex lens in the system once collects the beam passed through the opening and directs the beam onto the surface at a defocus position, and an aspherical optical element in the system makes intensity distribution of the beam after passing through the opening to be convex, wherein an aspherical shape of the element is curved where a radius of curvature at a local surface is reduced toward a periphery from an optical axis.

  • Patent number: 6765684
    Abstract: A surface shape measurement apparatus for measuring a shape of an object to be examined by a simple mechanism for rotating a reference grid. The apparatus comprises a stage on which the object is rested, a reference grid disposed in parallel to the stage, illumination means for illuminating the reference grid and projecting an grid pattern onto the object surface, photographing means for photographing the grid pattern projected onto the object surface through the reference grid and obtaining an image of moiré fringes, rotation means for rotating the reference grid about an axis normal to a grid surface of the grid plate, and analysis means for analyzing the shape of the object surface based on information about a rotation angle of the reference grid and intensity of the moiré fringes.

  • Patent number: 6487237
    Abstract: A preliminary selection averaging section 105 averages a small number of correlation values, a candidate code selecting section 106 selects some spreading codes, each having a high average correlation value, as candidates of a real spreading code, an actual selection averaging section 107 performs the averaging the correlation values of the respective candidate codes by use of the number of correlation values necessary for sufficiently restraining noise, and a maximum value detecting section 108 estimates a spreading code, having a maximum correlation value, as a real spreading code. Thereby, time for an initial synchronization can be reduced without decreasing the accuracy of the spreading code estimation.

  • Publication number: 20020137513
    Abstract: In a correlation circuit 103, a correlation value is obtained by despreading processing of a reception signal. The above correlation value is sent to a cell detection circuit 104 and a cell monitoring circuit 105. The above results of cell detection and cell monitoring are sent to a cell management table 106 for classification and management of cells. A management circuit 107 changes the cycle for cell monitoring/cell detection according to various kinds of events, and, then, gives an instruction for cell detection and cell monitoring at the changed cycle to the cell detection circuit 104 and the cell monitoring circuit 105.
