  • Patent number: 10713106
    Abstract: A communication unit receives a message in a network. A first anomaly detector detects an anomalous message by detecting values of a plurality of monitoring items from the message received by the communication unit and determining whether each of the detected values of the plurality of monitoring items is inside a corresponding first reference range and a corresponding second reference range. The second reference range is narrower than the first reference range. The first anomaly detector detects the message as the anomalous message, when any of the detected values is outside the first reference range, and detects the message as the anomalous message, when any of the detected values is inside the first reference range and is outside the second reference range and when a predetermined rule is satisfied.

  • Publication number: 20200143980
    Abstract: A coil component in which a change in thicknesses of the winding part is prevented is provided. According to the coil component, since each of a pair of neighboring resin walls and a seed part between the pair of resin walls are separated by a predetermined distance, a plating part grown on the seed part is easy to grow uniformly between the pair of neighboring resin walls. For this reason, the winding part whose surface is gentle and in which a change in thickness is prevented is obtained by plating growth.

  • Patent number: 10544425
    Abstract: By a QTL analysis and so forth using 4-HPPD inhibitor-susceptible rice and 4-HPPD inhibitor-resistant rice, a hypothetical gene (HIS1 gene) of an iron/ascorbate-dependent oxidoreductase gene located on a short arm of chromosome 2 of rice has been identified as a 4-HPPD inhibitor-resistance gene. Further, it has also been revealed that a homologous gene (HSL1 gene) of the HIS1 gene is located on chromosome 6 of rice. Furthermore, it has been found out that utilizations of these genes make it possible to efficiently produce a plant having increased resistance or susceptibility to a 4-HPPD inhibitor and to efficiently determine whether a plant has resistance or susceptibility to a 4-HPPD inhibitor.
