  • Publication number: 20200398982
    Abstract: A vehicle is described having an aerodynamically contoured lifting body comprising a plurality of cooperating body modules, wherein at least two of the modules are displaceably secured to each other. The modules include a thrust vectoring module operatively coupled to a propulsive mechanism. The thrust vectoring module is dynamically controlled to affect positioning and actuation of the propulsive mechanism to attain a desired positioning of the vehicle and at least one of a plurality of modes of operation thereof. The thrust vectoring module includes a nacelle module carrying the propulsive mechanism thereon and rotatably displaceable about one or more axes extending from the lifting body. The propulsive mechanism is positioned externally, internally, or in combinations thereof of the nacelle module and is tiltably displaceable about one or more axes of the nacelle module.

  • Patent number: 9975172
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for real time preventative maintenance of a molding system. The molding system could be a metal molding system or a plastics molding system. The method and apparatus are capable for scheduling service, business billing and invoicing, parts management, a remote control of a molding system for assessing the need for preventative maintenance. The indication for preventative maintenance is based upon a real time operational status of the molding system.

  • Publication number: 20070293977
    Abstract: A real time method and apparatus for indicating preventative maintenance in a molding system. The molding system could be a metal molding system or a plastics molding system. Real time threshold data is compared to real time operational parameter data as measured by sensors located on the molding system. If an out of tolerance condition is detected and validated by a comparator, then an indicator is provided to notify the need for preventative maintenance.

  • Patent number: 6437868
    Abstract: A system for measuring the thickness of a wafer while it is being thinned this disclosed. The system and method provide integrating an optical reflectometer into a common wafer thinning apparatus. Using reflected optical signals from the top and bottom of the wafer, the thickness of the wafer is determined with time based calculations in real-time while thinning is occurring. Once the desired thickness has been reached, the thinning operation is halted. By performing the measurement in-situ, this system and a method prevent scrapping of wafers which are overthinned and the reloading of wafers which are too thick. Since an optical reflectometer is used, the measurement is contactless, and thus prevents possible damage to wafers during measurement.

  • Patent number: 6184582
    Abstract: Compliant standoffs are disposed on a support surface of a semiconductor or hybrid semiconductor device. The standoffs extend further from the support surface than other active or passive structures associated with the (hybrid) semiconductor device, and are spaced at least a minimum distance from such associated structures. Each compliant standoff provides a surface at which auxiliary devices, such as optical subassemblies, lightwave circuits and the like, can be attached. Since the compliant standoffs extend further from the support surface than other associated structures, such other associated structures are protected from potentially damaging contact with the auxiliary device(s) being attached to the compliant standoffs.

  • Patent number: 6133125
    Abstract: A method for altering a dopant front profile of a dopant in a wafer is disclosed. An initial wafer is provided with an upper doped layer and a lower undoped layer. An oxide layer is grown over a portion of the wafer while a second portion of the wafer remains oxide-free. The wafer is then exposed to a substantially non-growth enhancement diffusion environment that contains the dopant at a given flow rate, but lacks additional materials which would cause growth on the exposed portions of wafer. After a predetermined amount of diffusion is allowed to occur, the wafer is removed from the diffusion environment and the oxide layer is removed.
