  • Patent number: 7539572
    Abstract: An image display whereby one can extremely easily know the current position of one's own vehicle and also grasp the actual situation around the current position of the vehicle, and with which the user gets highly satisfied. The image display includes a display device to display a photo picture on a prescribed reduced scale which is prepared based on photo data on a first scale that is read from a storage device in which photo data of two or more types in different scales to one area is stored, and a display switching device to conduct display switching according to a user's command to a photo picture on another reduced scale which is prepared based on photo data in a second scale that is different from the first scale.

  • Patent number: 6731919
    Abstract: Disclosed is an amplifier apparatus that corrects mismatching of the filter transmission characteristic due to a change in the temperature of the amplifier apparatus itself and thereby stably amplifies the high-frequency signal. The amplifier apparatus converts a signal to be processed into one having an intermediate frequency band to thereby execute amplification processing.

  • Patent number: 5255370
    Abstract: When transferring digital signals between plural electronic devices, there is a case of transferring data differing in the number of bits using the same structure. In this case, plural kinds of structure corresponding to the number of the bits are needed, and the apparatus becomes large and complicated. The data transfer apparatus of the present invention is capable of transferring data differing in the number of bits easily using the same structure, by the efficient use of constituent elements in every aspect of data transfer and processing and time sharing techniques.

  • Patent number: 5214707
    Abstract: This invention relates to a control system for controlling equipment provided inside a vehicle utilizing a speech recognition apparatus inside the vehicle. This control system includes an in-phase component detector (4) for detecting an in-phase component of voice signals from microphones (1), a phase shift and in-phase component detector (5) for shifting a phase of the voice signals to detect an in-phase component, and a command seat discriminator (6) for comparing output levels of the in-phase component detector (4) and the phase shift and in-phase component detector (5).

  • Patent number: 5170469
    Abstract: A data transfer apparatus transfers serial data to and from a controller. The apparatus includes a first memory which stores at least one of command data and address data of the serial data transferred from the controller, and a second memory which stores a main body portion of the serial data to be transferred to and from the controller. Changeover circuitry is provided which selectively applies the serial data transferred from the controller to either the first memory or the second memory. Further, the changeover circuitry applies a clock signal received from the controller to one of the first memory or the second memory in accordance with a latch signal received from the controller. The second memory functions to selectively store the main data portion of the serial data received from the controller and to read the main data portion of the serial data transmitted to the controller.

  • Patent number: 5148161
    Abstract: A digital signal processor comprises a code converter which converts an integer coded in a Binary Two's Complement (BTC) code to an integer coded in a Sign Magnitude Binary (SMB) code and/or a code converter which converts the SMB code to the BTC code. An integer coded in the BTC code and stored in an m-bits register is converted to an integer coded in the SMB code and input to an n-bits register, by an EXCLUSIVE OR processing of the bits with the sign bits and by supplementing a logic "1" in the less significant bit next to the least significant bit of the result of the exclusive OR operation. An integer coded in the SMB code and stored in an n-bits register is converted to an integer coded in the BTC code and input to an m-bits register, by an EXCLUSIVE OR processing of m-1 bits of magnitude bits with a sign bit. The code converters have a relatively simple construction, will not output an incorrect result, and are most suitable for processing AC signals.

  • Patent number: 5099446
    Abstract: When transferring data between plural electronic apparatus, the apparatus are composed so as to transfer floating decimal point data possessing the mantissa portion and exponent portion. Therefore, when transferring fixed decimal point data not having such divisions, a vacant time is left in the composition responsible for transfer, and the number of channels of the input/output data is limited unreasonably. To solve such problems, an apparatus it is designed to store, as well as to input and output, the fixed decimal point data also in the exponent portion storage region other than the mantissa portion storage region in the apparatus for storing fixed decimal point data.

  • Patent number: 4152930
    Abstract: A torque measuring device. The device comprises a mount base which is supported by a housing for swing motion around the axis of an output rotary shaft and for mounting an output rotary shaft-driving rotary machine thereon and whose center of gravity is located on the axis of a bearing assembly, a torque transmitting lever with its center of gravity located on the axis of its pivot for transmitting torque to a second lever, which second lever has a distal arm carrying thereon a moving coil disposed in a fixed magnetic field and is adapted to have a torque in the mount base transmitted thereto at its proximal point of action, and a position detector which detects the position of the moving coil and feeds its current output corresponding to a variation in the position of the moving coil back to the latter. This device is handy to carry.

  • Patent number: 4046607
    Abstract: A silicon layer is deposited over the insulating layer covering the surface of the semiconductor substrate and apertured to define a contact window through which the silicon layer is connected with a one-conductivity-type region formed in the semiconductor substrate. An impurity of the one conductivity type is introduced into the one-conductivity-type region through the contact window from the silicon layer. This impurity may be supplied from the surface of the silicon layer or may be preliminarily doped in the silicon layer. A conductive layer is deposited over the silicon layer and is formed to a predetermined pattern. Thereafter, the silicon layer is formed to the same pattern.
