  • Publication number: 20210047726
    Abstract: A method of forming a molybdenum film by oxidation and reduction is disclosed. A molybdenum oxide film is formed by CVD or ALD using a halide free organometallic molybdenum precursor. The molybdenum oxide film contains low amounts of carbon impurities. The molybdenum oxide film is reduced to form a highly pure molybdenum film. The molybdenum film has low resistance and properties similar to bulk molybdenum.

  • Patent number: 10664124
    Abstract: A method for monitoring cursor motion between multiple monitors that together form an extended display. The cursor's location and speed are tracked. When it is detected that the cursor has intersected a display edge, the cursor is permitted to transit to the next display only if the cursor speed is above a threshold value. Otherwise the cursor is constrained within the monitor where it is located. This makes it easier for a user to actuate buttons and icons that are located near screen edges. Moreover, if the cursor is predicted to be transiting into a display area where there is no additional monitor, then the stored physical location of the additional monitor's display area is displaced so that it lies in the predicted path of the cursor. Manual configuration of the relative physical locations of monitors is therefore unnecessary as the computer learns this automatically from user-driven cursor movements.

  • Patent number: 10600141
    Abstract: Marker commands are added to a stream of commands that are executed by a graphics processing unit (GPU) in a computing system. While the GPU executes the commands, information is written to a memory location each time a marker is reached in the pipeline. The memory location is accessible to the central processing unit (CPU), and the information identifies a command executed by the GPU. If the CPU receives an indication that the GPU is in an invalid state, then the CPU responds by accessing the memory location to identify the command executed in the pipeline of the GPU. Consequently, a command that was executing when the GPU entered the invalid state can be identified. This information can be used to pinpoint the cause of the invalid state.

  • Publication number: 20190189407
    Abstract: A movable substrate support with a top surface for holding a substrate, when present, is used in conjunction with a cover ring that is stationary to adjust for a shadow effect to control substrate edge uniformity during deposition processes. The cover ring is held stationary by an electrically isolated spacer that engages with a grounded shield in the process volume of a semiconductor process chamber. A controller adjusts the substrate support in response to deposition material on a top surface of the cover ring to maintain the shadow effect and substrate edge uniformity.

  • Publication number: 20110056286
    Abstract: The present invention enables the measurement and determination of a quantity over a selected spatial region by providing a device that incorporates a sensor for the measurement of the quantity and a spatial subsystem for determining the spatial information comprising a spatial position and/or orientation of the device when the measurement is made. A processing module integrated with the device operates on a dataset of multiple measurements correlated with spatial information and provides a determination of the quantity over the selected spatial range, either directly based on the measured data point and the spatial information or via a sensor fusion algorithm such as an interpolation algorithm. The results may be displayed on the device, for example, on a graphical display, or may be transmitted to a remote processor for subsequent processing and/or display.
