  • Patent number: 9913389
    Abstract: Tamper-respondent assemblies, electronic packages and fabrication methods are provided which incorporate a vent structure. The tamper-respondent assembly includes an electronic enclosure to enclose, at least in part, an electronic component(s) to be protected. The electronic enclosure includes an inner surface, and an air vent. A tamper-respondent electronic circuit structure is provided which includes a tamper-respondent sensor disposed to cover, at least part, the inner surface of the electronic enclosure, and define, at least in part, a secure volume about the electronic component(s). The vent structure includes at least one air passage coupling in fluid communication the secure volume and the air vent of the electronic enclosure to allow air pressure within the secure volume to equalize with air pressure external to the tamper-respondent assembly.

  • Patent number: 9276113
    Abstract: A method of forming a semiconductor device that includes forming a gate structure on a fin structure and etching the source and drain region portions of the fin structure to provide a recessed surface. A first semiconductor layer is formed on the recessed surface of the fin structure that is doped to a first conductivity type. A leakage barrier layer is formed on the first semiconductor layer. A second semiconductor layer is formed on the leakage barrier layer. The second semiconductor layer is doped to a second conductivity type.

  • Publication number: 20150145010
    Abstract: After formation of semiconductor fins in an upper portion of a bulk semiconductor substrate, a shallow trench isolation layer is formed, which includes a dielectric material and laterally surround lower portions of each semiconductor fin. Trenches are formed between lengthwise sidewalls of neighboring pairs of semiconductor fins. Portions of the shallow trench isolation layer laterally surrounding each trench provide electrical isolation between the buried plate and access transistors. A strap structure can be formed by etching a via cavity overlying a portion of each trench and a source region of the corresponding access transistor, and filling the via cavity with a conductive material. A trench top oxide structure electrically isolates an inner electrode of each trench capacitor from an overlying gate line for the access fin field effect transistor.

  • Publication number: 20140337111
    Abstract: A method and associated systems for rewarding online advocates. The invention identifies a primary advocate as a person or entity that endorses or advocates a product or service. The invention then automatically detects, tracks, and analyzes characteristics of the advocate's act of advocating the product or service to recipients. The invention also tracks the primary advocate's conversions, which occur when the primary advocate's act of advocating influences a recipient into advocating a product or service. The invention then automatically rewards the primary advocate as a function of characteristics of the primary advocate's influence and of the primary advocate's ability to convert recipients.

  • Publication number: 20140318962
    Abstract: A nanosensor for detecting molecule characteristics includes a membrane having an opening configured to permit a charged molecule to pass but to block a protein molecule attached to a ligand connecting to the charged molecule, the opening being filled with an electrolytic solution. An electric field generator is configured to generate an electric field relative to the opening to drive the charged molecule through the opening. A sensor circuit is coupled to the electric field generator to sense current changes due to charged molecules passing into the opening. The current changes are employed to trigger a bias field increase to cause separation between the ligand and the protein to infer an interaction strength.
