  • Patent number: 11373877
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for producing high aspect ratio features in a substrate using reactive ion etching. In some embodiments, a method comprises flowing acetylene gas into a process chamber to produce a diamond like carbon deposition on a pattern mask or on at least one layer of oxide or nitride on the substrate, flowing a gas mixture of a first gas of a hydrofluorocarbon-based gas and a second gas of a fluorocarbon-based gas into the process chamber, forming a plasma from the gas mixture using an RF power source and at least one RF bias power source, performing an anisotropic etch of the at least one layer of oxide or nitride on the substrate using the pattern mask, and evacuating the process chamber while interrupting the RF power source to stop plasma formation.

  • Publication number: 20220196416
    Abstract: A vehicle travel route control system controls a plurality of vehicles having an autonomous driving function or a driving assist function, wherein a vehicle dispatch information data server creates a travel route map, in which driving mode switching position at which vehicles have switched over during travel to the manual driving mode from the autonomous driving mode, have been added to a road map. Based on the travel route map, a travel route that avoids the driving mode switching position is calculated from among a plurality of routes on which a dispatch vehicle candidate travels to a destination via user position. When a travel route that avoids the driving mode switching position is calculated, a dispatch vehicle candidate is set as a dispatch vehicle, and the calculated travel route information is transmitted to an on-board unit mounted in the dispatch vehicle.

    Abstract: Provided is an inter-shaft distance measuring device for measuring a distance between two shafts or an amount of a change in the distance that includes: measuring elements that are respectively in contact with peripheral surfaces of the two shafts at a time of measurement and that are used as measurement references; a moving mechanism that includes an elastic member and that holds the measuring elements to move the measuring elements relatively and adds a force in opposite directions separating the measuring elements by an elastic force of the elastic member; and a measurer that measures the change in the distance between the measuring elements. In a state at the time of the measurement, the measuring elements between the two shafts add a pressing force by the moving mechanism respectively to the two shafts in directions widening the distance, and the state at the time of the measurement is maintainable.

  • Patent number: 11367813
    Abstract: Reliable resin packages and semiconductor light-emitting devices using the resin package can include a printed circuit board including a resin layer, metallic layers formed on a top surface of the resin layer and underneath a bottom surface of the resin layer and a frame arranged from a top surface of the printed circuit board toward a bottom surface of the printed circuit board. The semiconductor light-emitting device using the resin package can prevent the printed circuit board from warping toward the frame when forming the frame incorporating the printed circuit board because a total of each thickness of the metallic layers formed on the top surface and underneath the bottom surface of the resin layer can be thicker than a thickness of the resin layer. Thus, the present invention can provide the semiconductor light-emitting devices having high reliability, which can be used as a light source for vehicle lamps, etc.

  • Publication number: 20220178378
    Abstract: A transmission includes a transmission housing member, a ring portion, a high speed shaft, a third roller, and a third plate bearing, which rotatably supports the third roller. The transmission housing member includes a first supporting surface, which restricts the third roller to a first position, and a second supporting surface, which restricts the third roller to a second position. The third roller is moved within a movement range from the first position to the second position. The movement range includes a specified range in which the third roller is not supported, in a radial direction of the high speed shaft, by the transmission housing member with the third plate bearing in between, but is supported by being held between the ring portion and the high speed shaft.
