  • Publication number: 20120071097
    Abstract: A control circuit of an the in-vehicle apparatus repeatedly performs a Bluetooth connection operation to connect to both of registered cellular phones and registered portable AV players in such a manner that, if an HFP connection has already been established to a cellular phone prior to an AVP connection to a portable AV player, the control circuit performs one round of AVP connection attempts to all of the registered portable AV players according to a priority order, prior to performing connection attempts to connect other data communication type profile to the cellular phone. By using such a profile connection scheme, the AVP connection attempt will not be delayed until after a connection attempt of the other data communication type profile.

  • Publication number: 20110205877
    Abstract: An optical disc drive according to the present invention is designed to read data from a multilayer optical disc 100, from/on which data can be read or written using a light beam. The drive includes a light source 222 for emitting a light beam, an objective lens 230 for converging the light beam, a photodetector 236 for detecting the light beam that has been reflected from the disc, and a control section 246 for setting a read power for a particular one of the multiple storage layers of the disc by reference to a read power table 501b. The table 501b stores multiple read powers for the respective storage layers in order to make S-curves of a focus error signal obtained from the respective layers have predetermined amplitudes. In this manner, the optical disc drive of the present invention can be loaded with a multilayer optical disc more smoothly by setting the best read powers for the respective storage layers of the disc.
