  • Patent number: 6278956
    Abstract: A method for locating a failing latch in a defective shift register having P latches connected in series fabricated in an integrated circuit chip. The chip is depassivated to expose its upper metalized layer, and it is in the chamber of a scanning electron microscope (SEM) having sharp voltage contrast capabilities. Clock signals are generated to properly exercise the shift register. A string of N latches, wherein 1≦N≦P, typically N=P/2 is first selected and the stimuli are applied to the latches to allow the output net of the last latch of the string to toggle at a frequency of about 1 Hz. The SEM beam is focused on the area which encompasses the last latch, so that, if the latch output net blinks on the SEM screen, the string under observation is deemed to be good. Then, another, more extended string is selected and the above procedure is repeated.

  • Patent number: 5890858
    Abstract: A clamp-style sheet metal nut having a self-centering strip. The nut has two legs resiliently spaced apart. One leg has a threaded boss, the other leg has a through-bore for accepting the thread fastener. The self-centering strip is formed by twisting an annular strip of metal cut from the second leg and supported by a pair of resilient arms. The self-centering strip forms a circular aperture for accepting the threaded member and extends up into the bore of the carrier plate.

  • Patent number: 4671962
    Abstract: A chicory base refreshing drink is prepared from a chicory root extract solution by causing a sugared chicory juice to be fermented by using a Kefir type ferment. The solution is obtained by maceration, decoction or infusion of roasted or dried chicory roots, and sugared to yield a 6-percent saccharose concentration in the end product. Preferably, the sugar consists of a mixture of molasses and pure sugar with molass contents of the third-crop sirup in excess of 81.6 g/liter, the fermentation process being controlled by measuring the acidity rate which is kept preferably at 2.5 percent after 70 hours.
