  • Publication number: 20150254804
    Abstract: An image processing device may judge whether to execute a first type of enlarging process or a second type of enlarging process based on M lines of letter strings in an original image, in a case of judging to execute the first type of enlarging process, generate a first type of processed image data indicating a first type of processed image by executing the first type of enlarging process, and in a case of judging to execute the second type of enlarging process, generate a second type of processed image data indicating a second type of processed image by executing the second type of enlarging process. A layout of the plurality of letters in the second type of processed image is different from a layout of the plurality of letters in the first type of processed image.

  • Publication number: 20150254801
    Abstract: An image processing device may acquire original image data representing an original image including M lines of original character strings, and combine M items of original character string image data representing the M lines of original character strings so as to create target character string image data representing one line of target character string. The image processing device may divide the target character string image data so as to create N items of divided character string image data representing N lines of divided character strings into which the one line of target character string is divided, and create output image data representing the N lines of divided character strings by using the N items of divided character string image data. A number of characters of a leading line of divided character string may be different from a number of characters of a leading line of original character string.

  • Patent number: 9009387
    Abstract: In a memory system using a storage medium, which is inserted into an electronic apparatus via a connector to add a memory function thereto, the storage medium has a GROUND terminal, a power supply terminal, a control terminal and a data input/output terminal, and the connector has a function of being sequentially connected to each of the terminals. When the storage medium is inserted into the connector, the GROUND terminal and control terminal of the storage medium are connected to corresponding terminals of the connector before the power supply terminal and data input/output terminal of the storage medium are connected to corresponding terminals of the connector. Thus, it is possible to improve the stability when a memory card is inserted into or ejected from the memory system.

  • Patent number: 8897200
    Abstract: When no synchronization signal is transmitted over a system bus (115), a master repeater is arbitrarily selected from a plurality of repeaters (1112 to 111n), starts transmitting a synchronization signal over the system bus (115), and transmits information to the system bus (115) in synchronization with the synchronization signal. Other slave repeaters transmit information to the system bus (115) in synchronization with the synchronization signal transmitted by the master repeater.

  • Patent number: 8867429
    Abstract: Plural repeaters (1111 to 111n) are connected one another via a system bus (115), and each of which detects the state of another repeater by checking a signal transmitted over the system bus (115). When stopping the operation of home repeater (e.g., the repeater (1111)) which performs relaying process among wireless terminal devices (TA) to (TH), a secondary repeater (e.g., the repeater (1112)) set beforehand detects that the home repeater breaks down as the secondary repeater becomes unable to detect the signal over the system bus (115). The secondary repeater responds to the detection and bears the relaying process instead of the home repeater.

  • Patent number: 8824957
    Abstract: Wireless terminal devices (TA) to (TH) each detects whether channel information received from each of repeaters (1111) to (111n) indicates an occupied state or an idle state, and when detecting a channel in an idle state, writes identification information of that channel in a RAM (23). The wireless terminal devices (TA) to (TH) each selects a piece of identification information of a channel among plural pieces of identification information of a channel written in the RAM (23) to start making a call to a channel of the selected identification information.

  • Patent number: 8738057
    Abstract: A wireless terminal device (TA) receives a downlink signal that is repeatedly transmitted from a pre registered home repeater when requesting communication, specifies an idle channel based on idle channel information that is included in the downlink signal, and using the frequency of the uplink signal of the idle channel requests communication permission from the relay device that provides the idle channel. When communication permission cannot be received from the relay device from which communication permission was previously requested, the wireless terminal device (TA) uses the same frequency as the frequency of the downlink signal from the home repeater to transmit a signal to the wireless terminal device (TB) of an intended other party requesting communication.
