  • Publication number: 20060152586
    Abstract: An image processing system is used for dentistry. Upon creating a false tooth of a patient (59), a plurality of illuminating light of LEDs with different wavelengths emit light and a photographing apparatus (1A) photographs a tooth portion of the patient (59), thereby obtaining image data. The image data is sent to a dentistry filing system (2A) serving as a processing apparatus, and color reproducing data is obtained by calculation. The color reproducing data is sent to a dentistry factory (55) via a public line. Data is searched from a database (56) for calculating a ceramic compounding ratio, compound data of the ceramic false tooth is obtained, matching the color of the tooth portion of the patient (59), and the false tooth approximate to the tooth color of the patient (59) is created.

  • Publication number: 20050102560
    Abstract: To reduce power consumption of a processor system including a plurality of processors without degradation of the processing ability, a CPU detects mode setting information added to instruction code and outputs a clock control signal and a power supply voltage control signal to a clock controlling section and a power supply voltage controlling section, respectively. When a plurality of processing engines execute an instruction in parallel, clock signals with a frequency lower than a predetermined frequency and power supply voltages lower than a predetermined voltage are supplied. As a result, power consumption is reduced and the processing ability is maintained by the parallel execution.
