In a control device for a limited slip differential that limits a differential operation of front and rear wheels of a four-wheel-drive vehicle having mounted thereon a vehicle behavior control device that controls a braking force, an ECU that controls a torque coupling as the limited slip differential includes: a differential limiting force calculating device that calculates target torque of the torque coupling based on a vehicle traveling state; a differential limiting force correcting device that makes a correction to reduce the target torque based on a command from the vehicle behavior control device; and a thermal load calculating device that calculates a thermal load of the torque coupling. The differential limiting force correcting device limits the correction of the target torque based on the command from the vehicle behavior control device, when the thermal load of the torque coupling is equal to or larger than a predetermined value.

A tapered roller bearing includes: an inner ring; an outer ring; a plurality of tapered rollers having a roller large end face that is a convex curved surface; and an annular cage that holds the tapered rollers at intervals along a circumferential direction. The inner ring includes a large rib portion having a rib surface that is a concave curved surface and that contacts the roller large end face. Inequalities represented by R>Ri>Rr are satisfied, where Rr is a curvature radius of the roller large end face, Ri is a curvature radius of the rib surface in a longitudinal cross section of the inner ring, and R is a distance from a cone center to a center of a contact ellipse obtained by contact between the roller large end face and the rib surface.

A rolling bearing device includes a rolling bearing; and a spacer provided adjacent to one side of the rolling bearing in an axial direction and having a grease reservoir and a flow path, the grease reservoir being in a form of a groove, extending along a circumferential direction, and having grease reserved in the grease reservoir, and the flow path providing communication between the grease reservoir and an inner part of the rolling bearing. The spacer includes an annular wall surface that defines an inner periphery of the grease reservoir. An end of the annular wall surface on a side of the rolling bearing in the axial direction of the grease reservoir is continuous with an opposed end face of the spacer that is opposed to the rolling bearing. An entire area of the annular wall surface is constituted by a flat surface.

A gate pad and a source pad are disposed on a semiconductor layer. The gate pad is disposed at the center portion of the semiconductor layer and has the shape of a circle centered on the center of the semiconductor layer as viewed in plan. The source pad is disposed so as to surround the gate pad, and has the shape of a circular ring centered on the center of the semiconductor layer as viewed in plan. A plurality of unit cells that compose a trench type MOSFET element are formed in the semiconductor layer.
