  • Publication number: 20200398674
    Abstract: A vehicle running control device is provided with an accelerator pedal that a driver operates to input an acceleration-deceleration request and has an operation range inclusive of a driving range and a braking range. The vehicle running control device comprises an input-output section receiving various pieces of information including information on a current running direction in which the vehicle is currently running, a determining section determining whether the vehicle is in a switch-back state, and an acceleration-deceleration control section controlling the vehicle running, wherein the acceleration-deceleration control section keeps the braking-driving force at a first braking-driving force that is applied to the vehicle when the shift range switch request is accepted if a braking-driving request value for an operation of the accelerating-decelerating operation element is in the braking range when the determining section determines that the vehicle is in the switch-back state, until the vehicle stops.

  • Patent number: 10204672
    Abstract: A magnetic memory device includes a memory cell array, a counter circuit and a control circuit. The memory cell array includes a memory cell including a magneto resistive element in which writing is performed by current in a first direction or current in a second direction which is an opposite direction to the first direction. The memory cell array includes a first word line and a first bit line, both connected with the memory cell. The counter circuit counts the number of writing times in the first direction while the counter circuit is in electrical connection with the magneto resistive element. The control circuit performs writing in the second direction in the memory cell when the number of consecutive writing times in the first direction reaches a threshold number of times while the control circuit is in connection with the memory cell array.

  • Patent number: 10112488
    Abstract: A MG-ECU includes, as a regeneration limiting value, a limited value set according to a state of a battery, and an unlimited value enabling generation of braking force greater than the limited value. In a state in which regenerative braking is being limited, the MG-ECU causes frictional braking force to be generated based on a difference between the unlimited value and the drive force demand of a driver. In cases in which the frictional braking force is also limited in a state of the regenerative braking, the MG-ECU switches the regeneration limiting value from the limited value to the unlimited value, and requests a motor-generator to generate regenerative braking based on the limited value.

  • Patent number: 10090062
    Abstract: A magnetic memory device includes a memory cell array comprising memory cells including magnetic tunnel junction elements. Each memory cell is electrically connected between a source line and a bit line. A control circuit is configured to perform a screening test on the memory cell array before writing data to the memory cell array. The screening test determines whether an abnormal cell is present in the memory cell array. The controller applies a first writing voltage to the write data to the memory cell array if the abnormal cell is not present, or applies a second writing voltage to write data to the memory cell array if the abnormal cell is present. The second writing voltage is different from the first writing voltage.

  • Patent number: 10077826
    Abstract: Respective outer peripheral surfaces (33, 35) of opening-side end portions (30, 31) of a front cover (12) and a pump shell (7), which have been shaped by pressing, are formed by slimming such that the outside diameters of the slimmed outer peripheral surfaces are equal to each other. With the opening-side end portions abutting against each other, a high-energy beam such as a laser beam (R) is radiated toward the abutment surfaces (30, 31) from the radially outer side to weld the abutment surfaces to each other. Consequently, it is possible to perform welding accurately through easy processing in order to easily manufacture a fluid coupling with high precision that facilitates post-processing.

  • Patent number: 9869724
    Abstract: A battery monitoring unit monitors at least one from among: (i) the attachment state of secondary battery pack; (ii) the low state of a battery voltage VBAT; and (iii) the state of whether it is possible or impossible to use the secondary battery. A battery measurement unit measures the battery voltage VBAT, a charge/discharge current IBAT, and a temperature T of the secondary battery pack, and converts the measured values into digital data. A charging circuit is configured to charge the secondary battery pack using DC voltage from an external power supply based on the state information detected by the battery monitoring unit and the information measured by the battery measurement unit. A coulomb counter measures the charge/discharge current IBAT at predetermined time intervals, and integrates the measurement value, thereby calculating the sum total of the charged/discharged amount. The battery management circuit is monolithically integrated on a single semiconductor substrate.
