  • Patent number: 9866855
    Abstract: A processing control device includes: a process completion map 21 which is a map corresponding to processing units of respective sizes, and in which, when process corresponding thereto is completed, setting indicating completion of the process is performed; a dependence dissolution map 23 which is a map corresponding to the processing units of the respective sizes and in which information indicating that the dependence of each process disappears is set; a controller 10 which, when the process is completed, sets information indicating that the process is completed in an area corresponding to the process within a small size of map in the process completion map 21; and a reflecting circuit 22 which reflects the information set in the process completion map 21 in the dependence dissolution map 23.

  • Publication number: 20160301941
    Abstract: A video encoding device includes: a first video encoding section 11 for encoding an input image to generate first coded data; a buffer 12 for storing the input image; a coded data transcoding/merging section 13 for transcoding and then merging the first coded data generated by the first video encoding section 11, to generate second coded data; and a second video encoding section 14 for estimating a syntax value for encoding the input image stored in the buffer 12 based on the second coded data supplied from the coded data transcoding/merging section 13, to generate a bitstream. The first video encoding section 11 has a function of handling a first encoding process included in a second encoding process handled by the second video encoding section 14. The coded data transcoding/merging section 13 transcodes coded data by the first encoding process to coded data corresponding to the second encoding process.

  • Publication number: 20160249050
    Abstract: A block structure decision circuit includes: a storage unit 11 in which constraint data relating to a constraint on processing time for processing the block structure is set; a constraint determination unit 12 for determining whether or not the decided block structure infringes the constraint specified by the constraint data; and a block structure modification unit 13 for modifying the decided block structure not to infringe the constraint, in the case where the constraint determination unit 12 determines that the decided block structure infringes the constraint.

  • Publication number: 20130323471
    Abstract: In an electronic apparatus including a grip portion according to the invention, a surface of the grip portion is covered by a surface layer member made of an elastic material, and a plurality of protrusions protecting toward the surface of the grip portion are formed on an inner surface of the surface layer member. The surface layer member includes a skin portion having an exposed surface, and the plurality of protrusions project from an inner surface of the skin portion. Tip ends of the protrusions abut against the surface of the grip portion, and a plurality of spaces are formed between the plurality of protrusions.

  • Patent number: 8565594
    Abstract: In an opening/closing cover mechanism, an opening/closing cover is provided with a slidable plate in such a manner as to freely make a reciprocating motion in one direction. The slide plate slides in the one direction in the state in which the opening/closing cover is closed, thereby locking the opening/closing cover when the slide plate is at locked position. A cam mechanism is disposed in an opposing portion defined between an opening edge of an accommodation chamber and an outer peripheral edge portion of the opening/closing cover, both of the edges being faced with each other in the state in which the opening/closing cover is closed, to function when the slide plate slides in the one direction in the state in which the opening/closing cover is closed. The cam mechanism allows a pressing force to act on the opening/closing cover along an axial direction of a hinge axis.

  • Publication number: 20120014047
    Abstract: In an electronic device in which a sliding member and a guide trench that regulates a moving path of the sliding member are formed in the device body, a trench or a hole is formed in the first side surface of the guide trench, a movable body that can move through the trench or the hole and a biasing member that biases the movable body from the first side surface to the second side surface are arranged in the device body, the movable body can be moved between an advanced position where the movable body advances from the first side surface to the inside of the guide trench and a retracted position where the movable body is retired from the first side surface to the outside of the guide trench. A bushing member that pushes the switch in a process in which the movable body moves from the advanced position to the retracted position to change the switch over is formed on the movable body.

  • Patent number: 5579362
    Abstract: An apparatus for and a method of measuring at least one painted layer formed on a sample to be analyzed, which sample may be, for example, a galvanized steel including a substrate having the painted layer formed thereon with or without an intervention of a primer coated layer. In the practice of the invention, radiation is directed onto a surface of the painted layer so as to excite the sample. The intensity of resultant Compton scattering rays, the intensity of resultant fluorescent X-rays emitted from zinc contained in a plated zinc and the intensity of resultant fluorescent X-rays emitted from strontium contained in the primer coated layer are measured, and also the absorption of the fluorescent X-rays are taken into consideration, to provide a basis for calculation of the amount of paint coating forming the painted layer. In this way, the amount of primer and paint material both applied to the galvanized steel can be easily measured on a non-destructive basis.
