  • Patent number: 10631043
    Abstract: Communication reception that enables reception of a packet which may not contain an error without invalidating the same is disclosed. In one example, an information analyzing unit analyzes a data string and frame/slot information, and supplies TMCC information, slot header information, and data length information to a packet length indicating unit and a packet dividing unit. The packet length indicating unit defines the packet length in advance, and indicates the defined packet length to the packet dividing unit. The packet dividing unit performs packet division on the basis of the packet length obtained from the TMCC information, the slot header information, the data length information and the like from the information analyzing unit, and the packet length defined by the packet length indicating unit.

  • Publication number: 20200036850
    Abstract: An image reading device includes a reading unit that reads a document sheet and a reading standard surface and outputs read values corresponding to pixels arranged in a main scan direction, a control unit that processes the read values, and a storage unit storing information to be referenced by the control unit. In the storage unit, first data that is read values of the reading standard surface and serves as standards, and second data on ranges of variation, based on a change in a temperature, in the read values are stored. The control unit determines, based on the first data and the second data read from the storage unit and third data obtained by reading the reading standard surface after an acquisition of the first data, whether an abnormality exists in the pixels.

  • Patent number: 10428140
    Abstract: It is intended to provide an anti-EphA4 antibody or an EphA4-binding fragment thereof which is capable of binding to EphA4 and inhibiting the binding between EphA4 and its ligand, and a pharmaceutical composition comprising the anti-EphA4 antibody or the EphA4-binding fragment thereof as an active ingredient. A mouse anti-EphA4 antibody having binding affinity for EphA4 was obtained, and the sequences of complementarity-determining regions (CDRs) of the mouse anti-EphA4 antibody were identified. This allowed for preparation of a humanized antibody comprising the CDR sequences of the mouse anti-EphA4 antibody in heavy chain variable region and light chain variable region.

    Abstract: The present technology relates to a data processing apparatus and a data processing method capable of achieving higher convenience in a case where a plurality of transmission formats is available in a transmission frame. The data processing apparatus installed in a transmission-side facility processes a transmission frame transmitted as a broadcast signal and adds identification information for identifying the transmission format of the transmission frame, while a data processing apparatus installed in a reception-side facility processes a transmission frame in which a transmission frame has been identified, on the basis of identification information added to the transmission frame transmitted as the broadcast signal. The present technology can be applied as a method of a test stream, for example.

  • Patent number: 10225030
    Abstract: The present technology relates to a reception apparatus and a data processing method that permit efficient processing of time information. The reception apparatus receives a digital broadcasting signal based on an IP transport scheme, acquires time information from a physical layer frame transported in a physical layer of a protocol stack for the IP transport scheme, converts the acquired time information into the same data format as data provided in a payload of the physical layer frame, and outputs the converted time information to a processing section that performs a given process relating to an upper layer that is a layer higher than the physical layer. The present technology is applicable, for example, to a television receiver that supports an IP transport scheme.
