  • Patent number: 10741271
    Abstract: The test device is configured of a device main body and a mobile terminal. The mobile terminal functions as an operation terminal of the device main body, and a browsing terminal for measurement data. The mobile terminal is connected to the device main body through wireless communication. The device main body wirelessly transmits the measurement data to the mobile terminal. The mobile terminal notifies the device main body of the reception data size of the measurement data. In the device main body, a determining unit collates the reception data size with the transmission data size of the measurement data and determines whether or not the measurement data is normally transmitted. A notifying unit notifies the mobile terminal of a transmission result showing that non-transmitted data is present.

  • Patent number: 10729312
    Abstract: An endoscope light source device includes a light source to emit light, and a speckle reduction member to scatter the light. The reduction member has a surface including thickness variation to provide the light with an optical path difference. The device also includes a drive to move the reduction member, and a lens to condense the light passed through the reduction member onto a light guide of an endoscope. The surface of the reduction member has inclination of an average inclination angle. The average inclination angle is determined so that a light quantity loss rate of the entering light into the light guide by scattering of the reduction member and refraction of the lens has a positive value equal to or smaller than an effective allowable loss rate.

  • Publication number: 20200218436
    Abstract: Apparatus and method are provided that are capable of controlling a display in response to reliable detection of a sliding movement operation of a pointer (e.g., a user's finger) that passes through an end of a display region. The apparatus and method utilize a position detection sensor, which is superposed on the display and configured to detect the pointer's position discretely and successively at a predetermined time interval. Based on a first position detected by the position detection sensor and a second position detected, at the predetermined time interval since the detection of the first position, by the position detection sensor, which together indicate a moving operation of the pointer, it is determined whether the moving operation of the pointer has crossed an end of the display region. If it is so determined, a passed end position of the display region is calculated based on the first and second positions.
