  • Publication number: 20200020564
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes a method that prevents pre-mature de-chucking in processing modules. The method includes placing a wafer onto a chuck equipped with lift pins. One or more of the lift pins include a pressure sensor configured to measure a pressure exerted by the wafer. The method further includes measuring a first pressure applied to the one or more lift pins by the wafer, lowering the lift pins to place the wafer on the chuck, and processing the wafer. The method also includes removing the wafer from the chuck by pressing the one or more lift pins against the wafer to measure a second pressure exerted by the wafer. If the measured second pressure is equal to the first pressure, the method raises the wafer using the lift pins above the chuck.

  • Publication number: 20200019631
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable media are described for implementing an active-active transaction protocol according to which multiple sites can each provide active services such as executing update transactions that insert, modify, or delete data records. An active-active transaction protocol utilizes affinity records corresponding to both transactions that have been received as well as the data records those transactions are updating to determine which site should handle execution of an incoming update transaction. An affinity record defines a relationship between a data record and a site that determines whether and where a transaction seeking to update that data record will be routed for processing. Conflict handling mechanisms are also provided by the active-active transaction protocol to ensure data consistency between the multiple sites.

  • Patent number: 10535747
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for forming a transistor with one or more additional gate spacers. The additional spacers may be formed between the gate and original gate spacers to reduce the parasitic coupling between the gate and the source/drain, for example. In some cases, the additional spacers may include air gaps and/or dielectric material (e.g., low-k dielectric material). In some cases, the gate may include a lower portion and an upper portion. In some such cases, the lower portion of the gate may be narrower in width between the original gate spacers than the upper portion of the gate, which may be as a result of the additional spacers being located between the lower portion of the gate and the original gate spacers. In some such cases, the gate may approximate a “T” shape or various derivatives of that shape such as -shape or -shape, for example.

  • Publication number: 20200003624
    Abstract: A tracking and ranging system includes a thermal sensor device, a controller, a ranging device and a transmission device. The thermal sensor device is configured to capture a thermal image. The controller analyzes the thermal image to identify the main heat source from among the heat sources displayed in the thermal image, and obtain an offset distance between the center points of the main heat source and the thermal image. The ranging device is coupled to the controller. The transmission device loads the ranging device and is coupled to the controller. The controller controls the motion of the transmission device in accordance with the offset distance to correct the offset angle between the ranging device and the object corresponding to the main heat source. After correcting the offset angle, the ranging device detects a first distance to the object by transmitting energy and receiving reflected energy.
