|20110204867||Switching Power Supply Circuit - A switching power supply circuit comprises: a comparator for comparing a reference voltage, which is an output signal of a reference voltage generation circuit, with a feedback voltage, and outputting a set signal when a difference between the reference voltage and the feedback voltage exceeds a predetermined threshold value; an ON-time generation circuit for generating an ON-time signal for defining a period of time during which a switching element is kept ON; and a flip-flop circuit which turns on or off the switching element by the set signal and turns off or on the switching element by the ON-time signal. The reference voltage generation circuit has a first reference power supply for generating a first reference voltage, a second reference power supply for generating a second reference voltage (||08-25-2011|
|20110175581||Switching Power Supply Circuit - A switching power supply circuit comprises: a differential amplification stage for outputting an error signal representing a difference voltage between a preset reference voltage and a voltage based on an output voltage; an ON-time generation circuit for defining a period of time during which a main switching element is kept ON; a flip-flop circuit which is set by a set signal based on the error signal and reset by a reset signal being an output of the ON-time generation circuit; current information means for detecting current information representing a current flowing to a subordinate switching element; current information detecting means for supplying a current information detecting signal, which makes an adjustment based on the current information so as to delay the timing of the rise of the set signal, to the output side or the interior of the differential amplification stage; and current information holding means for holding the current information detected by the current information means at a moment when the subordinate switching element is turned on, and supplying a current information holding signal, which makes an adjustment so as to advance the timing of the rise of the set signal, to the output side or the interior of the differential amplification stage.||07-21-2011|
|20100300205||ACCELERATION SENSOR ELEMENT AND ACCELERATION SENSOR HAVING SAME - A covered acceleration sensor element includes a weight portion, a support frame portion surrounding the weight portion, a plurality of flexible beam portions for connecting the weight portion to the support frame portion to support the weight portion, piezoresistance elements provided on the beam portions, and wirings for connecting them. An upper cover and a lower cover enclosing the periphery of the weight portion together with the support frame portion are joined to the face and back of the support frame portion. Acceleration in the directions of three axes, i.e., a first axis in the joining thickness direction, a second axis in a plane perpendicular to the first axis, and a third axis in the plane and perpendicular to the second axis, or acceleration in the direction of any of the axes, is detected from changes in the resistances of the piezoresistance elements. The support frame portion is separated by separation grooves into an inner frame and an outer frame. The upper cover and the lower cover are joined to the outer frame. The inner frame is connected to the outer frame by a plurality of inner frame support portions having flexibility. The beam portions are connected to both sides of the weight portion along the second axis and the third axis. The inner frame support portions are connected to both sides of the inner frame in a direction in which they are rotated nearly 45 degrees from the second axis and the third axis.||12-02-2010|

|20090079410||DC/DC Converter - A DC/DC converter includes a main switching element and a subordinate switching element, and is arranged to supply power to load via a coil. The ON-time of a subordinate switching element in a succeeding cycle is controlled based on a period of time tdif from the time when the subordinate switching element is turned off until the time when voltage at the point of connection of the two switching elements reaches a predetermined threshold value.||03-26-2009|
|20090033305||PWM/PFM Control Circuit and Switching Power Supply Circuit - A PWM/PFM control circuit has a differential time generating means for forming a differential time signal representing a differential time corresponding to a difference between the pulse width of a PWM control signal and the pulse width of a PFM control signal on condition that the pulse width of the PWM control signal is smaller than the pulse width of the PFM control signal, and the oscillation frequency of a reference signal serving as a reference for forming the PWM control signal is controlled based on the differential time signal to a low value in accordance with the differential time.||02-05-2009|
