  • Patent number: 7110041
    Abstract: A teletext data separation apparatus has a slice level generating circuit including a slice timing control circuit, a control register, an adder and a divider. The slice timing control circuit generates a timing signal for sampling. The control register carries out ON/OFF control of the slice timing control circuit. The control register sets by its register value the number of the sampling points of the adder and divider. By varying the register value in response to the reception state, the number of the sampling points can be increased from the specified 16 points, for example. This makes it possible for teletext data separation apparatus to generate an appropriate slice level that enables the teletext data to be separated reliably even in conditions where noise or distortion occurs in the video signal because of the effect of a weak electric field or ghost.

  • Publication number: 20060000809
    Abstract: A method for fabricating a glass substrate for information recording media. A uniform texture can be formed in a major surface of the glass substrate without degrading the smoothness of the major surface. The method comprises a step of forming a texture in a major surface of a disk-shaped glass substrate by lapping the major surface with a lapping member while supplying an abrasive material onto the major surface. In the step, the glass substrate is reciprocated in a radial direction while rotating the glass substrate around its center at a predetermine rotational speed. The rotational speed, the reciprocating speed, and the reciprocation stroke are so determined that the locus of every particle of the abrasive material crosses itself at least at three points.
