  • Publication number: 20200160121
    Abstract: Systems and methods of improved network analytics are disclosed. A system may determine feature propagation in a network of nodes of a graph database. The system may compute, at scale, datasets having complex relationships using graph analysis to determine network effects of entities in a network of entities stored in a graph database. The system may identify entities of interest, which may be associated with a quantitative feature value. The system may compute paths from an entity to the entities of interest, centrality metrics for entities in each of the paths, and path lengths to determine network effects of the entity of interests on the entity. The system may use the computed network effects, taking into account types of relationships between entities in the paths, to determine scaled quantitative feature values for the entity that is subject to the network effects of the entities of interest.

  • Patent number: 10644112
    Abstract: A subfin leakage problem with respect to the silicon-germanium (SiGe)/shallow trench isolation (STI) interface can be mitigated with a halo implant. A halo implant is used to form a highly resistive layer. For example, a silicon substrate layer 204 is coupled to a SiGe layer, which is coupled to a germanium (Ge) layer. A gate is disposed on the Ge layer. An implant is implanted in the Ge layer that causes the layer to become more resistive. However, an area does not receive the implant due to being protected (or covered) by the gate. The area remains less resistive than the remainder of the Ge layer. In some embodiments, the resistive area of a Ge layer can be etched and/or an undercuttage (etch undercut or EUC) can be performed to expose the unimplanted Ge area of the Ge layer.
