  • Patent number: 10297291
    Abstract: The present invention provides a semiconductor device that can reduce the power consumption. The semiconductor device includes a plurality of sub-blocks each including a memory cell array, and a plurality of sub-search units corresponding to the respective sub-blocks. Of the data stored in each row of the memory cell array, each sub-block searches for data that matches the input search data according to a search instruction, and outputs a search result indicating hit or miss for each row. Each sub-search unit includes a flag data generation part that generates flag data for presearch to compare with part of the input search data based on the data stored in the corresponding memory cell array, and a search part that compares part of the input search data with the flag data generated by the flag data generation part, and outputs the search instruction to the corresponding sub-block based on the comparison result.

  • Patent number: 7969294
    Abstract: An onboard display device includes a display section attached to an instrument panel of a vehicle. The section has a second display area and a first display area. The second display area shows at least the speed as vehicle condition images indicating the conditions of the vehicle. The first display area shows a navigation image and other secondary images. The display section measures greater in width than in height with an aspect ratio of 7:3 or greater. The aspect ratio is the width/height ratio of a display area. The onboard display device allows for a visibility-improved simultaneous display of the secondary image, such as a navigation image, and the vehicle condition image, such as a speed display, which presents information on the conditions of the vehicle.
