  • Patent number: 10535289
    Abstract: A technique of displaying an image at adequate luminance with a configuration simpler than a configuration in related art is disclosed. A display device (1) includes a display unit (40) that is configured such that luminance of an image to be displayed is adjustable on a per area basis of multiple areas, an image processing unit (32) that generates an output image by modifying a signal level of an input image in a current frame by referencing process information concerning a preceding frame generated by a process information generation unit (34) in the preceding frame, and a display control unit (36) that determines maximum luminance, adjusts luminance on a per area basis of the multiple areas, and displays the output image at the adjusted luminance.

    Abstract: A plasma generation apparatus includes a chamber, a high-frequency power source, a magnetic field generator and a parallel capacitor. The chamber has an inner, toroidal-shaped electric discharge space. The high-frequency power source outputs a high-frequency current to the magnetic field generator, which generates a high-frequency magnetic field upon flowing of the high-frequency current therethrough. The parallel capacitor is connected in parallel to the magnetic field generator.

  • Patent number: 9658274
    Abstract: A light emitting element failure detector (4) includes a light emitting element (1), a constant current circuit (2) which supplies an electric current to the light emitting element (1), and an electric discharge path which discharges an electric charge such as the light emitting element (1). A light emitting element failure detector (4) further includes an instantaneous current interruption circuit (5) which instantaneously interrupts an electric current to the light emitting element (1) by a current supply path different from the electric discharge path, a diode (60), a DC power supply (61), and a current detector (62). The DC power supply (61) generates a direct-current reference voltage having a positive value lower than a voltage between the anode and cathode of the light emitting element (1) in a normal state. The DC power supply (61), the diode (60), and the current detector (62) which are connected in series constitute a parallel electric path of the light emitting element (1).

  • Patent number: 5637932
    Abstract: A power consumption control apparatus for an information processing apparatus having multi-tasking control which executes a plurality of information processing operations in parallel by time-divisionally switching a plurality of tasks in an arithmetic processing unit. The power consumption controlled apparatus detects an event where there are no information processing operations to be executed, sets the arithmetic processing unit to a power-saving mode in response to the event and immediately clears the power-saving mode set in the arithmetic processing unit in response to an interrupt signal from an input/output device. Alternatively, the power consumption control apparatus after detecting the event stops supply of a clock to the arithmetic processing unit or lowers a frequency of the clock in response to the event.
