  • Patent number: 10461545
    Abstract: In a battery system that connects a plurality of types of batteries through a switch SW, when the switch SW is switched at a voltage (charge rate), it has been possible to increase a stored charge during charging, depending on the DC resistance of the battery. An object of the present invention is to provide switch SW switching control so that the stored charge can further be increased. A first feature of the present invention is to provide a battery system in which a first battery and a second battery are connected in parallel through the switch SW, including an estimator which estimates the charging current by measuring the resistance and OCV of each battery. The battery system can further increase the stored charge by switching to a switch SW combination that can increase the stored charge.

  • Publication number: 20190206789
    Abstract: A semiconductor device has a coil and wirings under the coil. In addition, a distance between the upper face of the wirings and the bottom face of the cod is 7 ?m or larger, and the wirings have a plurality of linear wiring parts each wiring width of which is 1 ?m or smaller. In addition, the linear wiring parts do not configure a loop wiring, and the coil and the linear wiring parts are overlapped with each other in planar view. Even if such wirings (linear wiring parts) are arranged under the coil, the characteristics (for example, RF characteristics) of the semiconductor device are not deteriorated. In addition, the area of the semiconductor device can be reduced or high integration of elements can be realized by laminating elements (for example, MOM capacitance elements and the like) having the coil and the linear wiring parts.

  • Patent number: 10302765
    Abstract: An area monitoring system is configured to include a monitoring apparatus and a reflector. The monitoring apparatus includes a time-based detecting unit (i.e., a first detecting unit) that detects an intruder at a scanning angle by measuring a distance to an object based on an elapsed time until reflected light is received, for a first detection area. The monitoring apparatus further includes a light reception amount-based detecting unit (i.e., a second detecting unit) that detects an intruder at a scanning angle by comparing an actual light reception amount at a timing at which reflected light is received when radiated laser light is reflected by a reflector, and a light reception threshold (i.e., a reference light reception amount) set in advance, with a second detection area set farther than the first detection area as an area subjected to detection.

  • Publication number: 20180349392
    Abstract: An information processing system manages data on customers using tenants which are storage regions dedicated for the customers of a database and registers a message for processing data of a processing target in a queue. The data is processed by accessing the tenants corresponding to the data so as to refer to the tenants based on the message. The information processing system registers a message for processing a plurality of data of processing targets as a batch process in the queue in a case where the plurality of data satisfy the predetermined condition when the message for processing a plurality of data of processing targets is to be registered in the queue. In the process performed on the plurality of data, the different tenants are accessed to be referred to.

  • Publication number: 20180109648
    Abstract: A message execution server executes a process based on a message, which is registered in a queue by a message registration server. The message execution server acquires a message from the queue, executes the process based on the acquired message, and registers, to the queue, a message of a remained process based on the message which is interrupted when a predetermined period of time passes after the process based on the acquired message is executed. To the registered message, a delay time, which indicates a period of time to make the registered message unavailable from the queue, is set.
