  • Publication number: 20150340124
    Abstract: A destruction detection pattern for use on a printed circuit board formed in a plate shape or a film shape may include a conductor wound in a spiral shape. A width of the conductor may be constant. Within an imaginary square overlaying the destruction detection pattern, the imaginary square having a side length that is 12 times the width of the conductor, and wherein a first direction is parallel to a first side of the imaginary square and a second direction parallel to a second side of the imaginary square that is perpendicular to the first side, the destruction detection pattern may include a first pattern part, a second pattern part, a third pattern part and a fourth pattern part. The destruction detection pattern may be structured to detect its own disconnection or its own short circuit.

  • Patent number: 9053835
    Abstract: A flexible cable may include a data signal layer; a first disconnection detecting signal layer covering a front face of the data signal layer and formed with a disconnection detecting signal pattern; and a second disconnection detecting signal layer covering a rear face of the data signal layer and formed with a disconnection detecting signal pattern. The flexible cable may be formed in a multilayer structure. A shield pattern may be formed in the first and/or second disconnection detecting signal layer and avoiding the disconnection detecting signal pattern. The data signal pattern may be formed so as to be covered by the disconnection detecting signal pattern. At least a part of the signal pattern may be formed so as to avoid the disconnection detecting signal pattern.

  • Patent number: 8320074
    Abstract: A magnetic head which includes a core, a coil wound on the core, terminals to which ends of the coil are connected. The magnetic head also includes a substrate on which mounted are a demodulating electronic component for demodulating an analog output signal output from the terminals to create a digital demodulated signal, and an encrypting electronic component for encrypting the demodulated signal to create an encrypted signal. A cable electrically connects the demodulating electronic component and the terminals. A case body stores the core, the coil, the terminals, and the cable. The demodulating electronic component is mounted on one side of the substrate, and the encrypting electronic component is mounted on the other side of the substrate. The substrate is fixed to the case body so that the demodulating electronic component is placed inside the case body while the encrypting electronic component is placed outside the case body.
