  • Patent number: 10723296
    Abstract: A method and apparatus is proposed for controlling the electrical connection and disconnection between a battery unit and a supercapacitor on an automobile with the objective of preventing the electrical connection between the battery unit and the supercapacitor from being exceedingly long that would otherwise cause degraded power supply performance or even damage to the battery unit due to the self-discharging property of the supercapacitor. This feature can help to improve the power supply performance and extends the battery life. The proposed method and apparatus is characterized by the steps that the supercapacitor is electrically connected to the battery unit only at a temporal point when there is a need to use the supercapacitor, and immediately disconnected from the supercapacitor whenever there is no more need to use the supercapacitor.

  • Patent number: 9767981
    Abstract: This fluorescent display tube includes an anode and a plurality of filament-shaped cathodes both provided in an envelope, a support as one of a pair of support bodies which support the cathodes is electrically divided for each of the cathodes and at the time of driving, and a cathode driving IC gives pulse voltages to the cathodes at different timing. Since the voltages are applied to the arranged cathodes sequentially, current flowing through the cathode driving IC can be small as compared with a case where voltages are simultaneously applied to a plurality of cathodes. Heat generation of the cathode driving IC is suppressed, and costs required for the cathode driving IC are reduced.
