  • Patent number: 10341114
    Abstract: A providing device according to the present application includes a detecting unit and a providing unit. The detecting unit detects a function, from among functions used for communication with an authentication server that authenticates the identity of a user by verifying a signature of authentication result information that is information created by adding the signature using a predetermined key to an authentication result obtained by an authentication device that performs personal authentication on the user and that is information processed by a specific authentication procedure, that is not held by a terminal device that is used by the user. The providing unit provides the function detected by the detecting unit to the terminal device that is used by the user.

  • Patent number: 7265738
    Abstract: Provided are a method and apparatus for driving an electro-luminescence (EL) display panel having data electrode lines and scanning electrode lines intersecting each other at a predetermined distance and EL cells, formed at the intersections thereof. In the method and apparatus, a booting current corresponding to a magnitude change of a display data signal in the next horizontal drive time period with respect to a display data signal in the current horizontal drive time period is applied to each of the data electrode lines at the beginning of the next horizontal drive time period. Instantaneous values of the booting currents are kept constant, and the application time for the booting current is proportional to a magnitude change of each display data signal in the next horizontal drive time period with respect to the display data signal in the current horizontal drive time period.
