  • Patent number: 8334193
    Abstract: Provided is a method of manufacturing a semiconductor device capable of preventing a relative displacement of the positions between a range where impurity ions are injected and a range where charged particles are injected. The method of manufacturing the semiconductor device includes: irradiating impurity ions in a state in which a mask is disposed between an impurity ion irradiation apparatus and a semiconductor substrate; and irradiating charged particles to form a short carrier lifetime region, in a state in which the mask is disposed between a charged particle irradiation apparatus and the semiconductor substrate. A relative positional relationship between the mask and the semiconductor substrate is not changed from a beginning of one of the irradiating the impurity ions and the irradiating the charged particles to a completion of both of the irradiating the impurity ions and the irradiating the charged particles.

  • Patent number: 8330505
    Abstract: A detection circuit is coupled to an output terminal of a driver circuit. The detection circuit includes a comparator to compare a signal at the output terminal to a reference signal corresponding to a signal that would be generated if a capacitive load having a relatively high capacitance value were connected to the output terminal. Output of the comparator is sampled at a predetermined time after the driver circuit provides the drive signal. An error signal is generated when the sampled output indicates that the capacitive load having the relatively high capacitance value is actually connected to the output terminal.

  • Patent number: 8331390
    Abstract: A method and a data-transmission system for transmitting data encoded in a signal between a transmitting user and a receiving user of the data-transmission system via a network structure of the data-transmission system. The data encoded in the signal are serially transmitted bit-by-bit in data frames having a defined structure. Each bit of the data encoded in the signal is sampled in the receiving user. Due to the transmission via the network structure, the signal is delayed asymmetrically. To compensate for the asymmetrical delay on the physical layer in the transmission channel, it is provided that the asymmetrical delay of the signal is determined at at least one point in the network structure, and is at least partially compensated prior to the receiving user sampling the bits of the data encoded in the signal. A measuring and compensating device is provided to measure and compensate for the asymmetrical delay.

  • Patent number: 8332161
    Abstract: In a method for detecting a level of contamination of a particle sensor provided with two electrodes situated on an insulator material for generating an electrical field, the insulator material is heated to above a limiting temperature of the insulator material at which the insulator material begins to become conductive. The insulator material is modulated by heating or cooling, the modulation being carried out at a lower temperature and an upper temperature which are each above the limiting temperature. The variation over time of a measuring signal which may be picked up between electrodes is measured during the modulation. The measured variation over time of the measuring signal is compensated using a theoretical variation over time of the measuring signal in a contamination-free state of the particle sensor in order to obtain a variation over time of a differential signal.
