  • Patent number: 10791198
    Abstract: In an example information processing system including a server and at least one apparatus capable of communicating with the server, the apparatus includes at least an application execution unit. The application execution unit executes a predetermined application. The system includes, by either one of the apparatus and the server or by a cooperation of the apparatus and the server, an execution state determination unit and a writing management unit. The execution state determination unit determines whether or not a state of the execution performed by the application execution unit has satisfied a predetermined condition. The writing management unit, when the state has satisfied the predetermined condition, permits a user of the apparatus to write in information managed by the server.

  • Patent number: 9618461
    Abstract: An X-ray analysis apparatus for detecting, using an X-ray detector, X-rays given off by a sample when the sample is irradiated with X-rays, the X-ray analysis apparatus having replaceable components. The X-ray analysis apparatus comprises labels attached to the replaceable components and including symbols indicating the types of replaceable components, a camera for photographing the replaceable components and the labels, and CPU and image recognition software for specifying the types of replaceable components by calculation based on the symbols in the labels.

  • Patent number: 7711091
    Abstract: An X-ray analysis apparatus has information about a relationship between selection of a measurement type and a replacement work of optical parts and shows, on a screen of a display, graphical information about optical parts which should be changed, to make it easy for an operator to perform a preliminary work before measurement. When the operator selects one desired measurement type among a plurality of measurement types in a selection window, there is displayed on the display, depending on the selected measurement type, graphical information about necessary optical parts which should be newly installed and/or installed optical parts which should be removed. The operator looks at the operating instructions and then performs the replacement work. The graphical information may be: graphical indication of the installation locations of the optical parts; different pictorial expressions about the installation and the removal works; and graphical indication of the identification marks of the optical parts.

  • Patent number: 7569822
    Abstract: In an inspection of a semiconductor wafer for a defect, when infrared light passing through a semiconductor wafer is imaged by a camera and an inspection is conducted using the image, a problem that halation occurs in the camera due to light leaking from the side of the inspection object, which makes it impossible to conduct an inspection at the periphery portion occurs. An inspection object is irradiated by an infrared light source, and transmitted light is imaged by an infrared camera to be conducted. With the use of mask means that secures a clearance from the end portion on the outer side, it is possible to inspect on the peripheral portion. Also, as means for supporting the object, plural sets of those configured to be capable of evacuating are used, and by allowing the plural sets to evacuate alternately, it is possible to inspect across the entire surface.

  • Patent number: 6920170
    Abstract: Plate springs as coupling members can absorb deformation of an oscillator case due to heat and do not transmit the deformation to two optical bases constituting an optical resonator, and it is thereby possible to maintain an appropriate positional relation between the optical cases. A harmful deformation force is produced due to imperfect alignment deformation of bellows each of which is connected between the oscillator case and each optical base. The plate springs can also suppress the force acting on the two optical bases, and it is thereby possible to keep a laser optical axis of a laser beam to be a fixed position.

  • Patent number: 6792014
    Abstract: One optical base is provided on each side of a housing that houses a laser oscillator. Optical parts of an optical resonator are fixed to the optical bases. The optical bases are fixed to each other, independently from the housing, by supporting rods. A plate spring and two dampers fix the respective optical base to respective end of the housing. The plate spring bends in the direction of the laser beam when the housing deforms. The damper attenuates oscillation generated due to the displacement of the housing.

  • Patent number: 6669566
    Abstract: In a game processor GP that enable a player to play a plurality of games interrelated to each other, flash memory 12 stores a plurality of game programs PG interrelated to each other. SRAM 13 readably and writably stores backup data DG representing the progress of each of games A, B, and C. The player selects one of the game programs PG through a controller 70 to start game play. A deciding unit (CPU) 61 decides whether there is backup data DG for any game related to the game specific to the selected game. Based on a decision as to the backup data DG, a game program changer changes part of the game program PG.
