  • Publication number: 20190095569
    Abstract: Implementations of the present disclosure provide coloring methods that sort and pre-color nodes of G0-linked networks in a multiple-patterning technology (MPT)-compliant layout design by coordinate. In one embodiment, a method includes identifying target networks in a circuit layout, each target network having two or more linked nodes representing circuit patterns, and each target network being presented in an imaginary X-Y coordinate plane, assigning a first feature to a first node in each target network, the first node is determined using a coordinate-based method, and assigning the first feature and a second feature to remaining nodes in each target network in an alternating manner so that any two immediately adjacent linked nodes in each target network have different features.

  • Publication number: 20190074051
    Abstract: A refresh control method for a memory system is provided. The memory system includes a dynamic random access memory with a register set and a memory cell array. The refresh control method includes the following steps. Firstly, a masking command or an unmasking command is issued, and thus the register set is updated. A first region of the memory cell array is set as a masked region according to the masking command. A second region of the memory cell array is set as an unmasked region according to the unmasking command. Then, a refresh command is issued to the dynamic random access memory. According to the refresh command, a refresh action is performed on the second region of the memory cell array.

  • Patent number: 10015980
    Abstract: A method includes a step of identifying a subject in need of diet modification; and administering a first diet to the subject for a first time period. The first diet provides 4.5 to 7 kilocalories per pound of subject for a first day and 3 to 5 kilocalories per pound of subject per day for a second to fifth day of the first diet. The first diet includes less than 30 g of sugar on the first day; less than 20 g of sugar on the second to fifth days; less than 28 g of proteins on the first day; less than 18 g of proteins on days the second to fifth days; 20 to 30 grams of monounsaturated fats on the first day; 10 to 15 grams of monounsaturated fats on the second to fifth days; and between 6 and 10 grams of polyunsaturated fats on the first day.
