  • Patent number: 10007313
    Abstract: An electronic device allows a user to exchange a main battery in a state where an electronic device is continuously operated, even when a backup battery is a small-sized battery charger. The power supply device supplies power for driving an electronic device, and includes a first battery used as a driving power supply, a second battery used as the driving power supply when the first battery is unusable, a booster circuit that increases an output voltage of the second battery, a dummy load circuit for the booster circuit, a battery detachment detector that detects whether the first battery is detachable from the device, and a power controller that switches the driving power supply of the device to the first or second battery. The power controller activates the booster circuit and supplies output power of the booster circuit to the dummy load circuit, when the first battery is detachable.

  • Patent number: 7728601
    Abstract: A method of inspecting an electronic circuit that includes a first integrated circuit and a second integrated circuit formed on a circuit board. The first integrated circuit has a first power source, and an input circuit that has a test signal output section and the second integrated circuit has a second power source and an output circuit that has a signal input section. The method includes steps of: turning on the first and second power sources at prescribed voltage levels; changing voltage level of the first power source; applying a test signal to the signal input section of the second integrated circuit; detecting an output signal of the signal output section of the first integrated circuit; and examining whether there is a sufficient margin in the electronic circuit by comparing the test signal and the output signal.

  • Patent number: 7457988
    Abstract: An electronic control system has a microcomputer monitoring section and an output controlling section. A microcomputer is prohibited from controlling control objects of a vehicle by a control prohibition section in the output controlling section and monitoring halting section halts the abnormality monitoring program executed by a monitoring section, when there is a heavy-load program processing request. Thus, the microcomputer executes the heavy-load program processing with reduced processing load. The abnormality monitoring is started by the monitoring section, when the processing of the heavy-load program is terminated. Further, after normal operation of the microcomputer is checked, the control system allows the microcomputer to start controlling the control objects.
