  • Publication number: 20190171614
    Abstract: Provided is an arithmetic processing to reduce a number of parts as it is not necessary to prepare an operation device for each input processing logic. A plurality of types of input processing logics is stored in the ROM, and CPU selects one of the plurality of types of input processing logics and executes input processing according to the selected input processing logic. As a result, there is no need to prepare the ECU for each input processing logic, reducing the number of parts.

  • Patent number: 10264658
    Abstract: A lighting device which can produce various fade operations without significantly consuming memory capacity is provided. Duty ratios for a plurality of steps are recorded in a ROM of a slave ECU. The slave ECU sets an interval time for 1 step, reads out from a map brightness of a next step at each set interval time, and outputs a pulse with the read out duty ratio to a LED. A change duty ratio, a pre-change interval time and a post-change interval time are recorded in the ROM. The slave ECU sets the interval time for 1 step to the pre-change interval time before the duty ratio of the LED reaches to the change duty ratio, and changes the setting by setting the interval time for 1 step to the post-change interval time after the duty ratio of the LED has reached to the change duty ratio.
