The outer connection space has an overlapping space that overlaps the space division portion in an axial direction, and a non-overlapping space excluding the overlapping space from the outer connection space. A suction port has an outer overlapping portion located outside the separation cylinder in a radial direction, and an outer non-overlapping portion excluding the outer overlapping portion from the separation cylinder located outside in the radial direction.

A through hole is formed in the sensor package substrate so as to overlap the mounting area in a plan view and to penetrate the substrate from one surface to the other surface thereof. The mounting area and the controller chip overlap each other in a plan view. According to the present invention, by reducing the thickness of an insulating layer, it is possible not only to reduce the distance of a wiring for the sensor chip and controller chip, but also to reduce the area of the substrate.

  • Patent number: 10491732
    Abstract: A transmitter modulates an input voice signal to transmit an RF signal. A receiver demodulates a received RF signal to output an output voice signal. A voice level comparator compares a level of an input voice signal obtained by collecting a voice by a microphone with a VOX sensitivity level. A transmission determination unit instructs the transmitter to transmit the input voice signal, when the level of the input voice signal is equal to or greater than the VOX sensitivity level, based on a comparison result by the voice level comparator. A VOX sensitivity level calculator calculates the VOX sensitivity level in a predetermined period until just before the receiver completes outputting the output voice signal, based on an ambient sound collected by the microphone.
