  • Patent number: 10891247
    Abstract: In example implementations, an apparatus for detecting hardware components is provided. The apparatus includes a multipurpose integrated circuit comprising an input pin, a hardware component coupled to the input pin and a two-way communication bus coupled to the multipurpose integrated circuit. The multipurpose integrated circuit is to receive an interrogation signal from a processor for the hardware component coupled to the pin via the two-way communication bus. A response signal that indicates that the hardware component is detected on the pin is generated in response to the interrogation signal. The response signal is then transmitted to the processor over the two-way communication bus.

  • Publication number: 20200328201
    Abstract: An integrated circuit includes a first cell and a second cell. The first cell with a first cell height along a first direction includes a first active region and a second active region that extend in a second direction different from the first direction. The first active region overlaps the second active region in a layout view. The second cell with a second cell height includes a first plurality of active regions and a second plurality of active regions. The first plurality of active regions and the second plurality of active regions extend in the second direction and the first plurality of active regions overlap the second plurality of active regions, respectively, in the layout view. The first cell abuts the second cell, and the first active region is aligned with one of the first plurality of active regions in the layout view.

  • Patent number: 10607856
    Abstract: A manufacturing method of a redistribution layer is provided. The method includes the following steps. A patterned sacrificial layer is formed on a carrier. An actuate angle is formed between a side wall of the patterned sacrificial layer and the carrier. A first conductive layer is formed. The first conductive layer includes a plurality of first portions formed on the carrier and a plurality of second portions formed on the patterned sacrificial layer. The patterned sacrificial layer and the second portions of the first conductive layer are removed from the carrier. Another manufacturing method of a redistribution layer is also provided.

  • Publication number: 20190310714
    Abstract: A motion evaluation system, a method thereof and a computer-readable recording medium are provided. The motion evaluation system includes at least one sensor and a processor. The sensor generates sensing data for a motion posture. The processor obtains the motion posture of the sensor, determines a continued time accumulated when the motion posture conforms to a correct posture, and sends a notification message according to the continued time. The correct posture is related to an angle at which a portion under test inclined to a reference object. Accordingly, the rehabilitation can be performed anytime and anywhere, and it is easier for tracking the rehabilitation situation.

  • Patent number: 9213398
    Abstract: A keypad circuit provides a signal corresponding to an actuation of a button. A query is presented to confirm intent to place an apparatus in a low-power state in response to the signal. The apparatus assumes a low-power state in response to a confirmation. The apparatus is also configured to assume an active state from a low-power state in response to the signal. Point-of-sale terminals and other apparatus can be controlled and operated accordingly.
