  • Patent number: 10467841
    Abstract: Proceeds deposit machine has determination setting data containing correspondence between types of the coupons and information relating to necessity of authentication determination. A type determination unit determines the type of deposited coupon and then refers to the determination setting data. If “yes” has been set for the necessity of the authentication determination for the determined type of coupon, an authentication determination unit performs authentication determination. If the coupon is determined to be counterfeit as result of the authentication determination, the proceeds deposit machine discharges this coupon. If the coupon is determined to be genuine, proceeds deposit machine stores this coupon in one of sheet cassettes.

  • Patent number: 9520177
    Abstract: A semiconductor device is equipped with memory cells which are provided at the intersections of word lines and local bit lines, hierarchical switches which are respectively connected between the local bit lines and a global bit line, and a hierarchical sense amplifier which amplifies a potential difference generated between signal nodes, with the signal nodes being respectively connected to the local bit lines. According to the present invention, because the hierarchical sense amplifier is a differential type circuit, a stable sensing operation can be performed. In addition, because one hierarchical sense amplifier can be assigned to multiple local bit lines, the number of hierarchical sense amplifiers can be reduced.

  • Patent number: 9448429
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for fabricating a lightweight and thin liquid crystal display (LCD) device, using a supplementary substrate for processing of a thin glass substrate. Inactive gas is sprayed onto the surface of the substrate to thus remove OH groups from the surface, before the thin glass substrate and the supplementary substrate are attached to each other. Under such configuration, the supplementary substrate can be easily separated from a completed liquid crystal panel which is in an attached cell state, without any damages.
