  • Patent number: 10949138
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus has a plurality of image processing functions, executes processing based on an OS as an operation system, and includes an OS memory and a control device. The control device functions as an allocating device, a determination device, and a release device. The allocating device allocates, on the OS memory, image processing memories used for image processing, for the image processing functions, respectively. The determination device determines, based on respective past usage statuses of the image processing memories allocated for each of the image processing functions, regions unlikely to be used, of the image processing memories. The release device, upon occurring memory shortage in the OS memory, releases the regions of the image processing memories determined by the determination device to resolve the memory shortage.

  • Patent number: 10942691
    Abstract: Provided is an image forming apparatus capable of executing a copy job without causing a memory shortage by dividing and sequentially executing the copy job process. The image forming apparatus includes a free area determining unit and a division process executing unit. The free area determining unit compares capacities of work areas necessary for executing a scanning job and a printing job with free area in memory (RAM), respectively. The division process executing unit, in a case where the free area determining unit determines that the free area in memory is equal to or greater than the capacity of the work area necessary for executing the scanning job, but is less than the capacity of the work area necessary for executing the printing job, cancels parallel processing, and after executing the scanning process, saves in a non-volatile memory, and then after restarting, executes the printing process.

  • Patent number: 10825791
    Abstract: An interposer assembly having a housing with contact positioning holes each having a first wall face and a second wall face. The interposer contact has a base portion with shoulder portions and contact arm portions. The base portion is closer to the first wall face. The contact arm portions are once bulged from both respective vertical ends of the base portion toward the first wall face and then curved toward the second wall face. The housing has a retaining protrusion and a pair of slit portions. The retaining protrusion retains the interposer contact inside the contact positioning hole. Each of the shoulder portions is inserted into the slit portion. The slit portion blocks the interposer contact from moving toward the second wall face.

  • Patent number: 10792009
    Abstract: When displaying a plurality of images in different conformations in relation to information of a tissue motion typified by a heart wall motion, support information which is used to rapidly and easily visually confirm a relative positional correspondence relationship between an MPR image, a polar mapping image, and a three-dimensional image is generated and displayed. A marker indicative of a desired local position is set and displayed as required. Further, a position corresponding to the set or changed marker may not be present on the MPR image. In such a case, the MPR image always including a position corresponding to the set or changed marker is generated and displayed by automatically adjusting a position of an MPR cross section.

  • Publication number: 20200241810
    Abstract: An image forming system includes a plurality of image forming apparatuses connectable to a network. Each of the plurality of image forming apparatuses includes an operation display unit having a menu configuration unified among the plurality of image forming apparatuses, and a control unit to control the operation display unit. The operation display unit displays a function executable by at least one of the plurality of image forming apparatuses. When processing with a function executable by one image forming apparatus including the operation display unit is instructed, the control unit causes the one image forming apparatus to execute the function. When processing with a function not executable by the one image forming apparatus including the operation display unit is instructed, the control unit causes another image forming apparatus capable of executing the function by proxy to execute the function.

  • Patent number: 10712979
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus which implements a plurality of functions includes: storage with a prescribed storage area; an operating system which implements at least some of the functions by allocating a part of the prescribed storage area for a plurality of processes and executing the processes; and a storage area managing section which predicts an amount of consumed memory in response to generation of a job and determines whether or not the amount of consumed memory is allocable to the job in the prescribed storage area. The job is a processing target for the image forming apparatus. The amount of consumed memory is used for processing the job by the image forming apparatus. When determining that the amount of consumed memory is not allocable, the storage area managing section ends at least one process which is not used to process the job to make the amount of predicted memory allocable.

  • Patent number: 10658832
    Abstract: The present invention increases noise immunity of an electrical leakage detection circuit. A first comparator COMP1 generates a first comparison signal indicating a comparison result between a voltage corresponding to a detected signal from a zero-phase-sequence current transformer and a predetermined first threshold voltage VTH1. A judgment circuit outputs a judgment signal indicating if there is electrical leakage based on the first comparison signal and outputs a mask signal corresponding to the first comparison signal. A mask circuit generates a latch input signal based on the judgment signal and the mask signal. An output stage comprises a latch circuit which latches a state of the latch input signal when the latch input signal is asserted. The output stage generates a drive signal corresponding to the state of the latch circuit.
