  • Patent number: 5812859
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus having a work suspend/resume function which allows operator to use a main memory shared by different processings even when work suspension information is saved therein. A system for allowing a same operational environment as that set up in one information processing apparatus to be easily implemented in another information processing apparatus. A main memory used by a CPU for execution of processings has a function for storing information concerning the state of the information processing apparatus prevailing at a time point when execution of a given processing is suspended by a CPU for allowing the suspended processing to be performed in continuation later on. When the suspension state information has already been stored in the main memory by a former user, the suspension state information is transferred to a removable nonvolatile storage device so that the CPU can perform other processing than the suspended one by using the main memory.

  • Patent number: 4855728
    Abstract: A data converting system converts CRT display data into display data for another display unit such as a liquid crystal display unit by use of a memory. The system includes a data load controller which selects one segment of data out of two segments of data in the CRT display data successively while changing the segment position to be selected alternately in every two frame scanning periods so that the CRT display data for one complete picture is written into the memory in two frame scanning periods, i.e., a segment is written into the memory once for every two adjacent segments. Display data is read out of the memory in the data form conformable to the other display unit.

  • Patent number: 4839739
    Abstract: A one-dimensional image sensor comprising a solid image pick-up element takes images in sequence, and generates an image signal. Clock pulses from a frequency variable type clock pulse generator having a frequency which varies in correspondence to a control signal are supplied to a one-dimensional image sensor, thereby image signals are outputted in sequence. The image signal is amplified by an amplifier and inputted to a comparator and compared with a reference signal. A frequency variable range of the frequency variable type clock pulse generator is set higher than the cut-off frequency of the amplifier, and the binary level output by the comparator is substantially the same as the image inputted to the one-dimensional image sensor and control is effected by the variable frequency of the clock pulses.

  • Patent number: 4808991
    Abstract: A liquid crystal display is capable of displaying intermediate, partial or half tones of images, while at the same time preventing the occurrence of flicker and the decay of the liquid crystal panel. The display operation for data to be displayed in an intermediate tone has one or more lines of a repeating frame of display data that are prohibited from being displayed during in each frame. Such inhibited display lines are designated differently on a sequential basis over consecutive frames, and the sequence of designation is varied in successive frames in accord with changing patterns.

  • Patent number: 4408197
    Abstract: A display apparatus for use with a cathode-ray tube capable of displaying patterns in interlaced scanning and non-interlaced scanning operation modes, comprising a composite video signal synthesizer, a memory for storing pattern data, a mode setting circuit for the memory, a data selection signal generator and a raster line number signal generator. The memory stores data for relatively simple patterns such as alphabetical letters and those for relatively complicated patterns such as Chinese characters in individually particular areas in the memory addresses of these different areas are identified by a combination of the data selection signal and the raster line number signal supplied to the memory from the data selection signal generator and the raster line number signal generator. Accordingly, the apparatus is capable of displaying both relatively simple and relatively complicated patterns with satisfactory resolution and with a relatively small-scale structure.

  • Patent number: 4388621
    Abstract: In a .phi..sub.2 cycle steal mode, a clock signal is selected such that a time period during which a RAM is connected to a timing signal generator for display is extended and a time period during which the RAM is connected to a CPU is shortened accordingly, without changing an overall period. This clock signal is used to actuate a switching circuit for the RAM while a clock signal having unmodified duty ratio is applied to the CPU, a ROM and external circuits so that a display data readout period from the RAM is extended without affecting the CPU clock frequency and the operation of other circuits. During this readout period, a plurality of display address signals are applied to the RAM from the timing signal generator and a plurality of data derived from the RAM are sequentially loaded in a register which is then read out at a desired timing to enable the display of a plurality of characters in one CPU clock period.

  • Patent number: 4368461
    Abstract: A digital data processing device in which a color memory has a temporal data storage register at input/output interface thereof so that the data write-in or data read-out operations executed by a micro-processing unit (MPU) is always performed through the temporal storage register. When data read-out or write-in operation is made to a character memory at a certain address, the same operation is simultaneously carried out for the color memory at the corresponding address. Assuming that MPU reads out a certain display address of a display screen, a corresponding character code is fetched by MPU from the character memory, while the corresponding color code is transferred to the temporal storage register from the color memory. When MPU performs the write-in operation for another address of the display screen, the character code held by MPU until then is written in the character memory at a designated address, while the color data i.e.
