  • Publication number: 20210286562
    Abstract: A write method for a resistive memory including a storage array, a control circuit and an access circuit is provided. The control circuit receives an external command to activate the access circuit to access the storage array. The write method includes determining whether the external command is ready to perform a write operation for the storage array; generating a first operation voltage group to the access circuit when the external command does not perform the write operation for the storage array; reading a count value of a block that corresponds to a write address when the external command performs the write operation for the storage array, wherein the count value indicates the number of times that the block corresponding to the write address performs the write operation; and generating a second operation voltage group to the access circuit according to the count value of the block.

  • Patent number: 11074426
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to systems and methods for semiconductor tool part tracking and kit verification. Data relating to part identification and performance are encoded to a unique code that is encoded into machine-readable form, such as a data matrix. A multi-dimensional array (MDA) of the data matrices of a group of parts is a ‘golden MDA’. When assembled into a kit, the parts are scanned and compared to the golden MDA. If there's a match, a kit unique code is used to generate a kit data matrix. The part data matrix codes are provided to a database to determine if a part combination will cause a coupling effect, based on part usage history.

  • Publication number: 20200025292
    Abstract: A sealing member is provided, including a plurality of nodes and a plurality of antinodes. Each sealing member can be rotated to expose non-damaged lobes for sealing, and prevents the sealing member from falling out of the lobed groove. A chamber is provided, including a groove that the sealing member is placed in. A method of rotating and placing the sealing member is provided, including a rotation to expose nondamaged portions of the sealing member.

  • Publication number: 20190365244
    Abstract: In non-contact pulse transit time measurement system of the present invention, two continuous-wave radars are provided to detect movements at two positions on a subject for use in measuring pulse transit time. The measurement of the pulse transit time can be continuous and last for a long time because there is no contact to skin necessary.
