  • Patent number: 9225547
    Abstract: A data processing apparatus can reduce an occupancy rate of a ring bus by suppressing occurrence of a stall packet, and can change a processing sequence. In the data processing apparatus, a buffer is provided in each communication unit connecting the ring bus and the associated processing unit. Transfer of data from the communication unit to the processing unit is controlled by an enable signal. Consequently, occurrence of a stall packet is suppressed. Accordingly, frequency of occurrence of a deadlock state is reduced by decreasing the occupancy rate of the ring bus.

  • Patent number: 7155031
    Abstract: From a plurality of pictures 1-1 through 1-3 captured at successive time intervals, pictures 2-1 through 2-3 of regions determined in accordance with the movement of the celestial object are cut out. By deriving median values in regard to the same pixels in each of the cut-out pictures 2-1 through 2-3, a median value picture 3-1 is created. By deriving median values, the influence of large numbers of fixed starts that hinder the detection of the moving celestial object that moves in the cut-out pictures is eliminated, and only the moving celestial object is permitted to remain. When deriving median value, pixel values indicating singular values are eliminated in advance, so that the effects of the images of large bright light sources and the lost pixels that output no pixel values are effectively reduced.

  • Patent number: 6873745
    Abstract: The subject matter of the invention is to add information to image data of multicolor image and monochromatic image. An image processing apparatus capable of adding information on raw data performs a dispersion conversion on the spectrum of the additional information by multiplying a code sequence of the PN sequence generator 114 by the additional data which is inputted from the input terminal 111 and converted into serial data in P/S converter 112. At this time, the data sequence transmitted from the image signal processor 102 to the printer engine 107 is converted by the scan converter 109 to correspond to the spatial axis for desperation. The converted data sequence is added to the output from the adder 113 by the adder 110, and reconverted to the original scan by the scan inverter 115.

  • Patent number: 6722800
    Abstract: At least one printer is connected to an image source such as a digital camera via a network. When the printer receives a notification from the image source to switch a first image displayed on a display device to a second image, the printer displays an identifier of the second image according to the notification, and lights up an LED on a print button provided on the printer. When a period in which the printer is permitted to print the displayed image reaches a set time before a timeout, the LED on the print button is flashed. When the timeout is reached, the LED is turned off. When the print button is depressed, the printer sends a request for an image to the image source, receives image data for the image sent from the image source, and prints the image.
