  • Patent number: 11362675
    Abstract: In a multi-antenna communication system using LDPC codes, a simple method is used to effectively improve the received quality by performing a retransmittal of less data without restricting applicable LDPC codes. In a case of a non-retransmittal, a multi-antenna transmitting apparatus (100) transmits, from two antennas (114A,114B), LDPC encoded data formed by LDPC encoding blocks (102A,102B). In a case of a retransmittal, the multi-antenna transmitting apparatus (100) uses a transmission method, in which the diversity gain is higher than in the previous transmission, to transmit only a part of the LDPC encoded data as previously transmitted. For example, the only the part of the LDPC encoded data to be re-transmitted is transmitted from the single antenna (114A).

  • Patent number: 11351631
    Abstract: A calculating section of a control unit calculates a vertical position Defocus for a condensing lens using a height value H1 of a modified layer in a wafer that is set by a setting section according to the equation (1) below. Defocus=(thickness T1 of wafer?height value H1?b)/a??(1) The calculating section calculates an appropriate vertical position for the condensing lens according to the equation (1) depending on the height value H1 of the modified layer that is set by the setting section. Therefore, the vertical position of the condensing lens in laser processing operation can be determined more easily, and a time-consuming and tedious experiment for fine adjustment of the vertical position of the condensing lens does not need to be conducted.

  • Patent number: 11347165
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes an image forming portion, a belt, an inner roller, an outer member, an inner roller position changing mechanism, an acquiring portion, and a controller. In a case that information acquired by the acquiring portion shows that first and second recording materials are coated paper, the controller controls a position changing mechanism so that a position of the inner roller when a toner image is transferred onto the second recording material is changed to a second position. In a case that the information acquired by the acquiring portion shows that the first and second recording materials are plain paper, the controller controls the position changing mechanism so that the position of the inner roller when the toner image is transferred onto the second recording material is maintained at a first position.

  • Publication number: 20220158762
    Abstract: A transmitter apparatus wherein a simple structure is used to successfully suppress the degradation of error rate performance that otherwise would be caused by fading or the like. There are included encoding parts that encode transport data; a mapping part that performs such a mapping that encoded data sequentially formed by the encoding parts are not successively included in the same symbol, thereby forming data symbols; and a symbol interleaver that interleaves the data symbols. In this way, a low computational complexity can be used to perform an interleaving process equivalent to a bit interleaving process to effectively improve the reception quality at a receiving end.
