  • Patent number: 10674051
    Abstract: An actuator positions a movable portion including a lens in a first direction (Z-axis direction). An acceleration sensor generates first acceleration information ACC that indicates the acceleration applied to the image capture apparatus in the first direction. An actuator driver IC superimposes a correction value that corresponds to the first acceleration information on a base instruction value that corresponds to the target position to be set for the lens in the first direction. The actuator driver IC controls the actuator according to a corrected instruction value thus obtained.

  • Patent number: 10630335
    Abstract: A signal transmission and reception element transmits and receives a differential signal. Two transmission lines transmit the differential signal between the signal transmission and reception element and a connector. The signal transmission and reception element is connected to an external apparatus with the connector interposed therebetween. A noise generation source generates noise in a wireless band, which is coupled to the transmission lines. An antenna has a gain in a frequency band of the noise which is generated in the noise generation source. A wireless signal processing circuit processes a signal received by the antenna. An absorption-type filter that is mounted on the transmission lines absorbs noise mixed in the transmission lines.

  • Publication number: 20200003768
    Abstract: An electrochemiluminescence method of detecting an analyte in a liquid sample and a corresponding analysis system. An analyte in a liquid sample is detected by first providing a receptacle containing a fluid comprising protein coated magnetic microparticles to a stirring unit. Stirring of the fluid is necessary since the density of the microparticles is usually higher than the density of the buffer fluid. Thus the microparticles tend to deposit on the bottom of the receptacle leading to an aggregation of the microparticles because of weak interactions. To obtain representative measurements a homogeneous distribution of the microparticles in the buffer fluid is necessary to ensure a constant concentration of microparticles for each analysis cycle. It is further necessary to provide disaggregation of the microparticles, which is also realized by stirring the fluid. Stirring is conducted with a rotational frequency that is adapted to the amount of fluid to be stirred.
