  • Patent number: 6688274
    Abstract: In a motorcycle intake structure, an air cleaner is provided under a sheet and an intake passage is connected to an upper opening of the air cleaner. The intake passage is formed by the sheet, a rear fender and a side cover. An inlet port from the outside of the intake passage opens rearward in a upper rear portion of the side cover. This motorcycle intake structure forms a smooth intake airflow with reduced intake resistance and free from influence by dirt or other debris.

  • Publication number: 20030070855
    Abstract: A method of loading a two-wheeled vehicle onto a vehicle, e.g., within a trunk space of the accommodating vehicle. The required trunk space can be minimized without relying upon folding of the two-wheeled vehicle. A seat post of the two-wheeled vehicle loaded onto and rearward of a rearmost seat of a four-wheeled vehicle is pulled up forward around a predetermined shaft of pivotal motion. A seat of the two-wheeled vehicle functions integrally as a backrest of a rear seat of the four-wheeled vehicle and a seat back of the two-wheeled vehicle integrally functions as a headrest of the seat of the four-wheeled vehicle.

    Abstract: To perform a link process between a device or a program which makes a connectionless communication and a device or a program which makes a connection communication, a service system is arranged in between. This process is performed via the service system. With this service system, an operating process which is generated and extinguished at each session is generated on a connectionless communication side, while a communication process which stays resident and maintains a line on a connection communication side, so that the link process is implemented by making a communication between the operating process and the communication process.

  • Patent number: 6436331
    Abstract: A resin sealing method for sealing a gap between a substrate and a semiconductor chip mounted thereon includes the following steps: applying a predetermined amount of resin at and along the circumference of the semiconductor chip in such a manner so as to maintain a space between the resin and a side face of the semiconductor chip; reducing the pressure of the atmosphere around the substrate to exhaust air from the gap; reducing the viscosity of the applied resin to partially fill the gap with resin, thereby leaving a closed cavity reduced in pressure; pressurizing the atmosphere around the substrate to compress the closed cavity due to the pressure difference from the surrounding atmosphere to entirely fill the gap with resin. The exhausting of the air is very stable, and a concentration of resin at the corner of the semiconductor chip can be suppressed, thereby avoiding the spattering of resin onto the top of the chip.

  • Patent number: 5962097
    Abstract: A protective member for a semiconductor wafer wherein a pressure-sensitive adhesive layer formed on a protective film is temporarily adhered to a separator comprising a reinforcing layer and a cover layer, through the cover layer. The separator of the protective member does not require a surface treatment with a release agent and in processing a semiconductor wafer, such as back-surface grinding, the protective film can be automatically peeled and is adhered to the semiconductor wafer via an automatic adhering apparatus to enable the desired processing.

  • Patent number: 5663284
    Abstract: A copolymerized polyamide, comprising amide bonds formed by an aliphatic diamine with 4 to 14 carbon atoms and terephthalic acid, with the existence ratios of distributed respectively adjacent amide bonds satisfying the following formulae (A) and (B), and with the half-crystallization time satisfying the following formula (C).0.9.ltoreq.[XY]obs./[XY]calcd.<1.1 (A)0.9.ltoreq.[XX]obs./[XX]calcd.<1.1 (B)wherein X stands for an amide bond formed by an aliphatic diamine with 4 to 14 carbon atoms and terephthalic acid, and Y stands for any other amide bond than X. [XY] refers to the rate at which X and Y are adjacent to each other among all the amide bonds in the polymer structure, and [XX] refers to the rate at which X and X are adjacent to each other among all the amide bonds in the polymer structure. [XY] calcd. and [XX] calcd. are respectively the values of [XY] and [XX] calculated on the assumption that X and Y amide bonds are distributed statistically at random, and [XY] obs. and [XX] obs.

  • Patent number: 5571462
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing an electric wire insulated with a foamed plastic. The method includes steps of introducing a foaming agent into a fluororesin in a molten state to allow the foaming agent to dispersed in the molten resin, and extruding the molten resin having the foaming agent dispersed therein onto a conductor wire to allow foaming. A fluorine-based foaming agent contains as a main component at least one kind of a fluorocarbon having a molecular weight of about 338 to 488 is used as a foaming agent.

  • Patent number: 5510133
    Abstract: A process is provided herein for producing a variety of reformed and cured herring roe mixed foods including "herring roe on kelp", "herring roe on shellfish" and "herring roe with kamaboko" by making the best use of the intrinsic binding ability of fresh herring eggs. In one embodiment, the process may begin by extracting ovaries from sexually-matured herring. Individual eggs are then singled out from the ovaries. The eggs are rinsed and cleaned. A perforate mold is then filled in single or multi-layers with any solid food or foods, e.g., kelp, fish, shell-fish, kamaboko, ham, sausage and/or cheese between the layers of eggs, to form a sandwich structure. The sandwich structure in the mold is then salt-cured, substantially to the saturation level. The salt-cured and solidified product is then removed from the mold.

  • Patent number: 5333314
    Abstract: In a composite subsystem having a plurality of data base systems and data communication on a plurality of processors, a composite subsystem controller unifies other data base systems of the composite subsystem and distributed data base systems, and, at the occurrence of a fault in some subsystem, allows other subsystems to operate continuously, thereby facilitating the recovery after the faulty subsystem has started up, and makes management as to which data base system a transaction in execution has accessed so that the range of failure is confined, thereby facilitating the fault recovery. The check points of two processings including updating of information in the memory and accumulation of the updated information in the journal are detected so that the need of journals earlier than the check point is eliminated, and a check point dump is acquired without waiting for the end of transaction which has been active at the check point.

  • Patent number: 5329628
    Abstract: A database system includes a database unit for storing a database, a managing processor and a processor. The managing processor manages the database unit and accesses the database unit in response to an inputted particular request. The processor internally generates a request in accordance with a user program, directly accesses the database unit in accordance with the generated request when the generated request is one of first predetermined requests, and outputs the generated request to the managing processor as a particular request when the generated request is one of second predetermined requests. Each of the second predetermined requests incurs a change in contents of the database, and the managing processor updates a log stored in a log unit in accordance with processing for the particular request.

  • Patent number: 5274809
    Abstract: Task execution control for a multiprocessor wherein at a time point when a post issue task ends the use of a shared resource, the shared resource is released, another task which is running on another processor is allowed to lock the shared resource, and thereafter the task is made ready. After that, the post procedure is initiated, and thereafter through the high-speed dispatch procedure, the processor is granted first to a task which has failed to lock the shared resource, and the task is prompted to retry to lock the shared resource.
