  • Patent number: 10113234
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein provide a method for sealing a porous low-k dielectric film. The method includes forming a sealing layer on the porous low-k dielectric film using a cyclic process. The cyclic process includes repeating a sequence of depositing a sealing layer on the porous low-k dielectric film and treating the sealing layer until the sealing layer achieves a predetermined thickness. The treating of each intermediate sealing layer generates more reactive sites on the surface of each intermediate sealing layer, which improves the quality of the resulting sealing layer.

  • Publication number: 20170292521
    Abstract: A pump device includes a casing, an impeller, a base, and a motor. The casing includes a pump chamber, and an inlet and an outlet. The impeller is accommodated in the pump chamber. The motor is connected to the casing for driving the impeller to rotate and includes a rotor chamber for receiving a rotor. The base is disposed between the impeller and the motor and includes an accommodating groove having an inlet port in communication with the rotor chamber to allow fluid in the pump chamber to enter into the rotor chamber. In the pump device, precipitation has been performed to fluid in the accommodating groove before the fluid enters into the rotor chamber, thus the impurity particles can be prevented from entering into the rotor chamber, thereby prolonging the service life of the pump device.

  • Patent number: 9626829
    Abstract: The current invention discloses devices and methods that may be used for detection and verification of interactions, such as collisions, between objects in application programs, such as online games. After receiving interaction information from a first terminal, a server may send the interaction information to another terminal for verification based on the first terminal's credit rating. When the credit rating is high, the server may broadcast the interaction information before the verification process, which may be conducted randomly. On the other hand, when the credit rating is low, the server may wait for the verification results from the other terminal and only broadcast the interaction information when the information is confirmed. Such an approach optimizes the interaction verification process, reduces security risk, and saves computing resources.

  • Patent number: 9506145
    Abstract: A cleaning method for a UV chamber involves providing a first cleaning gas, a second cleaning gas, and a purge gas to one or more openings in the chamber. The first cleaning gas may be an oxygen containing gas, such as ozone, to remove carbon residues. The second cleaning gas may be a remote plasma of NF3 and O2 to remove silicon residues. The UV chamber may have two UV transparent showerheads, which together with a UV window in the chamber lid, define a gas volume proximate the UV window and a distribution volume below the gas volume. A purge gas may be flowed through the gas volume while one or more of the cleaning gases is flowed into the distribution volume to prevent the cleaning gases from impinging on the UV transparent window.
