  • Patent number: 11137446
    Abstract: A test apparatus is configured to test a DUT that does not support synchronous control from an external circuit. A main controller is configured based on an architecture that tests a device by synchronous control with the main controller itself as the master. A MIU is configured as an interface between the main controller and the DUT. The MIU establishes asynchronous control between it and the DUT with the DUT as the master, and establishes control between it and the main controller with the main controller as the master.

  • Patent number: 10779076
    Abstract: A damper and a speaker apparatus includes the damper, which suppresses damage to an oscillatory system from an excessive input signal, enabling an efficiency increase of the speaker apparatus. As a damper has a planar surface, undue deformation of the oscillatory system due to an excessive input signal is suppressed, and damage to the oscillatory system can be suppressed. Furthermore, since the deformation of a corrugation portion by a normal input signal is hardly prevented, a reduction in sound pressure of the speaker apparatus with respect to an input signal is suppressed, enabling an increase in efficiency. Furthermore, the planar surface is extended at a height in a thickness direction different from that of an attachment portion. Thus, rising portions are deformed when a voice coil bobbin is oscillated, enabling suppression of rupture of the damper in the vicinity of a boundary between the planar surface and the attachment portion.

  • Patent number: 10148518
    Abstract: A management apparatus transmits a plurality of probe packets with different hop count limits to a remote computer of interest. Then, on the basis of responses to the probe packets, the management apparatus produces path data that indicates a path from the management apparatus to the remote computer. The management apparatus obtains type data from the remote computer and intervening computers on the path to the remote computer. This type data indicates whether each of the remote computer and intervening computers is a physical computer or a virtual computer. When the type data indicates that the remote computer is a virtual computer, the management apparatus determines a host physical computer that is hosting the remote computer, on the basis of the type data and path data.
