  • Publication number: 20220406670
    Abstract: A sensor package substrate disclosed in the present specification has a mounting area in which a sensor chip is mounted and a controller chip connected to the sensor chip. 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.

  • Publication number: 20220281293
    Abstract: A blower includes an air introduction box, a casing, an impeller, a filter medium, a frame body, a first partition plate and a second partition plate. The filter medium captures a foreign matter contained in a first air and a second air flowing from the air introduction box to the impeller. The frame body houses the filter medium and is installed in a filter installation portion upstream of the impeller. The first partition plate is fixed to the frame body and divides a space upstream of the filter medium into a plurality of regions. The second partition plate is fixed to the frame body and divides a space downstream of the filter medium into a plurality of regions. The filter medium is interposed between the first partition plate and the second partition plate.

  • Publication number: 20220267142
    Abstract: A sensor package substrate has through holes V1 and V2 at a position overlapping a sensor chip mounting area. The through hole V1 has a minimum inner diameter at a depth position D1, and the through hole V2 has a minimum inner diameter at a depth position D2 different from the depth position D1. Thus, since the plurality of through holes are formed at a position overlapping the sensor chip mounting area, the diameter of each of the through holes can be reduced. This makes foreign matters unlikely to enter through the through holes, and a reduction in the strength of the substrate is suppressed. In addition, since the depth position D1 and depth position D2 are located at different depth levels, it is possible to sufficiently maintain the strength of a part of the substrate that is positioned between the through holes V1 and V2.

  • Publication number: 20220212519
    Abstract: The passage opening and closing device includes a casing in which an opening edge forms an opening of an air passage, and a sliding door slidably movable inside the casing to open and close the opening. A door end part of the sliding door faces a door facing wall of the opening edge when the sliding door is positioned at a closed position where the sliding door closes the opening. A gap flow-path extending in the door moving direction is formed between the door facing wall and the door end part. A distance between the door end part and the door facing wall decreases downstream in air flow in the gap flow-path so that the gap flow-path is a convergent flow path.
