A beam irradiation device includes a photodetector which receives servo light; a signal processing section which generates a position detection signal based on a detection signal from the photodetector; and a control section which controls the laser light source and the actuator for beam scanning based on the position detection signal. The signal processing section performs a sampling operation with respect to the detection signal from the photodetector at two consecutive sampling timings. The signal processing section includes an A/D converting section which converts a difference between two sampling values obtained by the sampling operation into a digital signal, and a computing section which computes the position detection signal based on the digital signal from the A/D converting section.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
