  • Patent number: 10545526
    Abstract: A circuit includes a current mirror circuit (CM circuit) including first and second transistors, a third transistor whose drain is electrically connected to a drain of the second transistor, a switch controlling the current output from the circuit, and first and second memory circuits. A reference current of the CM circuit is input to a drain of the first transistor; a current that is a copy of the reference current is output from the drain of the second transistor. When a current is output from the circuit, the reference current is not input to the CM circuit. A drain current corresponding to a voltage stored in the first memory circuit flows through the second transistor; a drain current corresponding to a voltage stored in the second memory circuit flows through the third transistor. The difference between the two drain currents corresponds to the output current of the circuit.

  • Patent number: 10522978
    Abstract: In an ignition plug, since a ground electrode is formed in a thin-rod-shape or a mesh-like shape, sufficiently strong radicals are locally generated by a barrier discharge, an anti-inflammation effect by the electrode is small, and the growth of a flame is hardly hindered. Furthermore, by making the thickness dimension of a second dielectric facing a discharge region uniform, the barrier discharge is spread over the surface of the second dielectric, the generation of the radicals is maintained, and combustibility after ignition is promoted. Furthermore, because an end portion of a high voltage electrode and a ground electrode are disposed to face each other within a combustion chamber, a fuel gas introduced into the combustion chamber is liable to flow into the discharge region, and is easily ignited by the radicals generated due to the discharge.

  • Publication number: 20190383777
    Abstract: A first mixer mixes solvents therein. A second mixer has a capacity different from that of the first mixer, and mixes solvents therein. A first separation column is associated with the first mixer. A second separation column is associated with the second mixer. A first valve enables switchover between a first communication state in which the first mixer and the first separation column communicate with a detector, and a second communication state in which the second mixer and the second separation column communicate with the detector. Only by switching the first valve, it is possible to switch between the first communication state and the second communication state. The internal capacity of a flow channel in the first communication state differs from that in the second communication state. Therefore, it is easy to perform analysis with different internal capacities.
