  • Patent number: 9811254
    Abstract: A transaction terminal device includes an orientation detecting unit that detects the orientation of an information processing device with respect to the orientation of gravity, and an information processing unit that displays a work screen of work categories on a display unit based on display attributes for changing of the orientation of the information processing device configured for each of the work categories. When the display attributes are permitted for rotating the work screen based on the changing of the orientation of the information processing device, the information processing unit displays the respective elements constituting the work screen in the position/orientation based on the detected result by the orientation detecting unit.

  • Patent number: 9773131
    Abstract: An information processing device includes a non-secure information processor and a secure information processor that are each accommodated in a housing. A first input display and a second input display are each provided on an operational surface of the housing. A boundary is between a first end side of the housing and a second end side of the housing, with the second end side of the housing being opposite to the first end side of the housing across the first input display and the second input display. A color or a surface treatment of a first portion of the first end side of the housing corresponding to the non-secure information processor is distinguishable from a color or a surface treatment of a second portion of the second end side of the housing corresponding to the secure information processor.

  • Patent number: 9760739
    Abstract: A non-secure display area and a secure display area are set on a screen of a display section of a touch panel TP. A non-secure input area and a secure input area are set on a detection surface of a touch input detector of the touch panel TP. In settlement processing, in a display area where the non-secure display area and the secure display area are overlapped, amount information is displayed. A message for urging authentication information input and a PIN pad are displayed in the secure display area. An operator can safely input PIN information to secure the input area through the PIN pad displayed in the secure display area. Even when the secure portion and the non-secure portion are present together, the settlement terminal device can secure the security of input authentication information or the like to suppress the operator's mistake or incorrect operation.

  • Patent number: 9670593
    Abstract: A method for recharging raw material polycrystalline silicon which enables large chunks of polycrystalline silicon to be recharged to a CZ ingot growth process while preventing the CZ crucible from being damaged and restricting a decline of the dislocation free rate and the quality of the grown ingot. Polycrystalline silicon chunks are recharged by first forming cushioning layer silicon of smaller chunks. The cushioning layer of polycrystalline silicon chunks are deposited on a surface of the residual silicon melt in a crucible. Subsequently, large-sized polycrystalline silicon chunks are introduced onto the cushioning layer, the cushioning layer cushioning the impact due to dropping of the large-sized polycrystalline silicon chunks.

  • Publication number: 20160042348
    Abstract: In a settlement system, a credit card determination unit collates an input card number with negative data of an acquirer or a settlement processor which is accumulated in a negative data table of an acquirer or a settlement processor and store's internal negative data accumulated in a store's internal negative data table, and determines whether or not the settlement process is executable by using the input card number based on the collation result. In a case where a negative data updating unit updates the store's internal negative data by itself, a communication unit distributes the updated store's internal negative data to other settlement terminal devices. In addition, the communication unit receives the updated store's internal negative data from the other settlement terminal devices.

  • Publication number: 20160042178
    Abstract: In a payment terminal device, a plurality of APIs are called with the execution of a payment application, and have individual functions. Monitor statistics monitor a call procedure of APIs which are used with the execution of the payment application. A statistics accumulator accumulates a history of the call procedure of the APIs. A determiner determines the validity of the call procedure of the APIs monitored by the monitor statistics based on the call history of the APIs accumulated in the statistics accumulator.

  • Publication number: 20150262175
    Abstract: In the payment process of a transaction, it is possible to ensure security of information regarding the payment process, and perform a suitable payment process. When mutual authentication is established, a secure input application and a command interpreter form a secure virtual private communication path (VPN). Transmission of payment-related information such as encrypted PIN information is started through the VPN. The command interpreter and a payment center form a secure virtual private communication path (VPN). Transmission of payment-related information is started through the VPN. When transmission using the VPNs and is normal, a secure input manager and a terminal UI payment application perform a card payment process in which the command interpreter is relayed.
