  • Patent number: 10393051
    Abstract: An internal-combustion-engine fuel injection control device which can accurately control a boosted voltage applied to a fuel injection valve during fuel injection and can control a variation in a fuel injection amount without increasing a size or a cost of the fuel injection control device even when a width of a fuel injection driving pulse to drive the fuel injection valve is small is provided. A fuel injection control device includes a boosting operation control unit configured to start a boosting operation at predetermined timing regardless of an amount of a detected voltage when the detected voltage is higher than a threshold voltage for starting boosting and is lower than a threshold voltage for stopping boosting.

  • Patent number: 9415664
    Abstract: A windshield control device is configured such that a position and/or an angle in a height direction of a windshield attached to a front part of a vehicle is optionally adjusted by an actuator. The windshield control device includes receiving means that receives a signal related to a head set having a microphone used by a rider, and control means that drives and controls the windshield. The control means upwardly moves the windshield according to the signal received by the receiving means. The signal is a tone signal input from the microphone or a manipulated signal of an active switch for operating the head set or the receiving means. The windshield is upwardly moved according to magnitude of the tone signal input from the microphone after the receiving means is operated.

  • Patent number: 8754495
    Abstract: A method of fabricating a photodiode array having different photodiode structures includes providing a semiconductor substrate having first and second diode areas including a bottom substrate portion doped with a first doping type, an intrinsic layer, and a top silicon layer doped with a second doping type. The second diode areas are implanted with the second doping type. A dopant concentration in the surface of the second diode areas is at least three times higher than in the first diode areas. The top silicon layer is thermally oxidized to form a thermal silicon oxide layer to provide a bottom Anti-Reflective Coating (ARC) layer. The second diode areas grow thermal silicon oxide thicker as compared to the first diode areas. A top ARC layer is deposited on the bottom ARC layer. First PDs are provided in the first diode areas and second PDs provided in the second diode areas.
