  • Publication number: 20190368610
    Abstract: A mounting groove of a seal structure using an O-ring is defined by: a groove bottom surface; an acute-angle-side groove side surface inclined at an acute angle contiguously to the radially inner edge of the groove bottom surface; and an obtuse-angle-side groove side surface inclined at an obtuse angle contiguously to the radially outer edge of the groove bottom surface. The O-ring is mounted in a state of being pushed and expanded to the acute-angle-side groove side surface. The O-ring is constrained, in the mounting groove, between the groove bottom surface and the acute-angle-side groove side surface. The O-ring is prevented from falling off from the mounting groove. A groove width is constant or increases from the groove bottom surface toward a groove opening. Work for mounting the O-ring on the mounting groove is easy, and processing for the mounting groove is also easy.

  • Patent number: 10372855
    Abstract: Various aspects of the disclosed technology relate to techniques of selecting scan cells from state elements for partial scan designs. Signal probability values for logic gates in a circuit design are first determined. Based on the signal probability values, next-state capture probability values for state elements in the circuit design are computed. Based on the next-state capture probability values, scan cells are selected from the state elements. Scan cells may be further selected based on continuously-updated control weight values and observation weight values associated with the state elements.

  • Patent number: 8527232
    Abstract: Methods of diagnostic test pattern generation for small delay defects are based on identification and activation of long paths passing through diagnosis suspects. The long paths are determined according to some criteria such as path delay values calculated with SDF (Standard Delay Format) timing information and the number of logic gates on a path. In some embodiments of the invention, the long paths are the longest paths passing through a diagnosis suspect and reaching a corresponding failing observation point selected from the failure log, and N longest paths are identified for each of such pairs.

  • Patent number: 8375334
    Abstract: Predetermined travel locuss are set in a three-dimensional virtual space. Menu panels displaying menu items are arranged along the travel locuss assuming a display position set as a local origin so that the normal to each LCD panel will face a virtual camera. The transparency of a menu panel is raised in accordance with its distance to the virtual camera. A scroll operation moves menu panels along the travel locuss connecting display positions P until a selected specific menu panel reaches the display position P0. A display screen is drawn with the virtual camera and menu panels are three-dimensionally displayed in rolls. By sliding a stylus pen on the LCD panel, the menu screen displayed on the LCD panel scrolls at a velocity corresponding to the drag velocity. When the stylus pen is released from the LCD panel, an application program corresponding to the menu display entity (crosshatched) is activated.

  • Patent number: 7625516
    Abstract: A manufacturing method for a sheet molded body having a desired three dimensional shape and an excellent quality of the design, which has no crease, by uniformly expanding a decorated sheet prior to molding, and closely contacting the decorate sheet to the surface of a male die. In the manufacturing method, the pressure at the front side of the decorated sheet is lowered relative to that at the back side. An arm means is then moved towards the decorated sheet from the back side of the decorated sheet so that the decorated sheet is inverted by increasing the pressure at the front side relative to that at the back side. The decorated sheet is then three dimensionally formed along the surface of the male die by, while pressing the male die from the back side and moving the arm means backwards, increasing the pressure at the front side.
