  • Publication number: 20190206022
    Abstract: [Object] To reduce a scale of an arithmetic processing unit which performs an arithmetic process between frames in a sensor. [Solution] A frame memory stores pixel data of a frame that transitions in time sequence. An inter-frame arithmetic processing unit implements a predetermined arithmetic by column parallel in a row unit on the pixel data of a current frame and the pixel data of a past frame stored in the frame memory and updates the pixel data of the past frame stored in the frame memory on the basis of a result of the predetermined arithmetic.

  • Patent number: 9967385
    Abstract: The present application is directed to a communication apparatus, a communication control method and a non-transitory computer medium that enable a user to more effectively prohibit unauthorized communications. By way of example, a communication apparatus is disclosed that includes a controller provided with a Connectivity Manager function configured to perform data communication with a plurality of communication methods and select an optimal communication method. In various embodiments, the controller is configured to receive a request for data communication, and regulate the data communication, when the request is received while cellular communication is on, even when a unique user identifier (UID) of the request is a UID of the Connectivity Manager function, by preventing cellular communication by the Connectivity Manager function.

  • Patent number: 9851867
    Abstract: A portable electronic device capable of more easily selecting a desired text input application, a method of controlling the same, and a program are provided. In a state in which characters or an image is displayed on a display of a portable telephone, an instruction is given such that either the image or at least one of the characters (for example, the characters “a”, “i”, “u”, and “e” on a region) is selected and then the character or the image is moved to an end region (for example, the right side of an end region). Consequently, the portable telephone starts a text input application storing the character associated with the end region (for example, a notepad application) and the selected character or image is input.
