  • Patent number: 9280314
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for controlling a cordless telephone device for use in a system that allows remote control of a home electric appliance. The method includes a first generation step of causing a first generation unit in a handset to encode audio input via a sound receiving unit in the handset to generate a first stream, and a first transmission step of transmitting the first stream to a base unit. The first generation step includes causing the first generation unit to generate instruction bit information and a first instruction stream when a first trigger indicating a request to start the remote control is given to the first generation unit. The first transmission step includes transmitting the instruction bit information and the first instruction stream to the base unit through a multiplexing scheme that is common to transmission of a first stream generated when the first trigger is not given.

  • Patent number: 8712499
    Abstract: An echo-based single point imaging (ESPI) system (10) providing high-resolution oxygen images of a sample is disclosed. The ESPI system (10) employs spin echo detection of the resonance from a spin probe and concurrent Single Point Imaging (SPI) for spatial encoding of the oxygen concentration within the sample. Images are derived by comparing spin echo intensities of two images reconstructed at two time points selected at identical time intervals on either side of a refocusing pulse, eliminating artifacts associated with sample magnetic susceptibility and field inhomogeneity effects.
