  • Patent number: 9978540
    Abstract: An input operation device according to the present disclosure includes first to third light-emitting sections, a first light guide body, and a second light guide body. A lower end of the first light guide body faces the first light-emitting section and the second light-emitting section. The first mark emits light on the first light guide body when light is incident on the first light guide body from the first light-emitting section, and the second mark emits light on the first light guide body when light is incident on the first light guide body from the second light-emitting section. The upper surface section of the second light guide body emits light when light is incident on the second light guide body from the third light-emitting section. At least one of the first light-emitting section, the second light-emitting section, and the third light-emitting section can change light emission luminance.

  • Patent number: 5822130
    Abstract: Light radiated from a light source is gathered by an oval mirror. The gathered light is incident on one end of a rod-shaped optical integrator, integrated and made uniform within the optical integrator, and is radiated from the other end of the optical integrator. The light from the optical integrator is diffused and projected on an exposure area of a display tube by a lens system. The lens system presents an astigmatism, thereby forming a first virtual focus and a second virtual focus on its virtual image area. The diffused light is apparently diffused vertically at the first virtual focus and apparently diffused horizontally at the second virtual focus. The first vertical focus and the second vertical focus correspond respectively in position to the positions of the vertical deflection means and horizontal deflection means of the display tube.

  • Patent number: 5489985
    Abstract: There is provided an apparatus of inspecting a packaged state by scanning a packaged printed circuit board with a fine light beam and detecting reflection beams of the fine light beam in a plurality of directions. A fine light beam emitted from a light source is scanned on the packaged printed circuit board substantially vertically thereto by means of a polygon mirror and a light projection f.theta. lens. An optical path correcting system receives reflection beams scattered from the packaged printed circuit board and corrects optical paths of the reflection beams. The correction is done in such a way that reflection beams having constant directional vectors regardless of the change of the scanning position of the fine light beam are received and guided to light receiving positions complying with a height at a scanning position on a plurality of photoelectric conversion devices.
