  • Patent number: 10459003
    Abstract: In a capacitance detection type sensor system, a sensitivity of the sensor system deteriorates because a low frequency noise typified by a 1/f noise cannot be separated in frequency from a signal band. A carrier wave used for capacity detection is modulated with two kinds of frequencies, sampled at a first modulation frequency, subjected to a C/V conversion, and synchronously detected at a second modulation frequency to obtain a signal.

  • Patent number: 10461765
    Abstract: A successive approximation type AD converter includes an in-phase voltage detection and supply circuit that supplies an in-phase voltage obtained by impedance voltage division of a first input analog signal and a second input analog signal to a first capacitance DA converter and a second capacitance DA converter. The first capacitance DA converter samples the first input analog signal with reference to the in-phase voltage, and the second capacitance DA converter samples the second input analog signal with reference to the in-phase voltage. After the sampling period ends, a comparator compares the output of the first capacitance DA converter and the output of the second capacitance DA converter, output voltages of the first capacitance DA converter and the second capacitance DA converter are changed by the control signal of a successive approximation logic unit on the basis of a comparison result, and comparison processing is repeated.

  • Patent number: 10446838
    Abstract: Cycle characteristics of a nonaqueous secondary battery are to be improved. An active material including: a first active material that contains a nano silicon produced by heating a layered polysilane represented by a composition formula (SiH)n and having a structure in which multiple six-membered rings formed from silicon atoms are connected; and a second active material that contains a graphite, is used in a negative electrode. With this, expansion and contraction due to stress during charging and discharging can be mitigated, and thereby cycle characteristics improve.

    Abstract: A nano silicon material having reduced amounts of oxygen (O) and chlorine (Cl) contained therein is provided. The nano silicon material contains fluorine (F) and nano-sized silicon crystallites. Generation of a layer in which oxygen (O) and chlorine (Cl) are present is suppressed due to the presence of fluorine (F), so that a decrease in the moving speed of lithium ions is suppressed. In addition, due to the presence of fluorine (F), the concentrations of oxygen (O) and chlorine (Cl) are reduced, so that reaction thereof with lithium ions is suppressed.

    Abstract: A system may obtain orthogonal pairs of acoustic waveforms obtained by a rotating downhole acoustic tool. The downhole tool may include an acoustic transmitter and an acoustic receiver. A computing device communicatively coupled to the downhole tool that instructs the transmitter to generate the various waveforms detected by the acoustic receiver and store the various waveforms in a buffer. Each waveform of a subset of the various waveforms oriented in a similar direction may be stacked to generate a composite waveform with reduced noise. The computing system may determine an orthogonal pair of waveforms based on the composite waveform and remaining waveforms.

  • Publication number: 20190136346
    Abstract: A hardfacing alloy satisfies the following condition when the hardfacing alloy as a whole is 100 mass % (also simply referred to as “%,” hereinafter), Ni: 10-25%, Si: 1-3%, Fe: 3-18%, the total of one or more elements of Mo, W, and Nb: 6.5-20%, and the balance: Cu and impurities. In particular, it preferably satisfies Fe+2Mo?22.6(%), Mo equivalent/Fe?1.17, and Mo equivalent=Mo+0.522W+1.033Nb. In a hardfacing part composed of the hardfacing alloy, coarse hard particles are formed to ensure the wear resistance, and a soft phase present in the hard particles ensures the machinability. This may be understood as a raw material powder for hardfacing treatment and may also be understood as a hardfacing member in which a hardfacing part is formed on a base material using the raw material powder.
