  • Publication number: 20240128131
    Abstract: A camera may capture reflected light from the surface of the wafer during a semiconductor process that adds or removes material from the wafer, such as an etch process. To accurately determine an endpoint for the process, a camera sampling rate and light source intensity may be optimized in the process recipe. Optimizing the light source intensity may include characterizing light intensities that will be reflected from the waiver using an image of the wafer. Pixel intensities may be used to adjust the light source intensity to compensate for more complex wafer patterns. Optimizing the camera sampling rates may include nondestructively rotating a view of the wafer and converting the sampled intensities to the frequency domain. The camera sampling rate may be increased or decreased to remove spatial noise from the image without oversampling unnecessarily. These optimized parameters may then generate a clean, repeatable trace for endpoint determination.

  • Patent number: 11960832
    Abstract: Machine learning, artificial intelligence, and other computer-implemented methods are used to identify various semantically important chunks in documents, automatically label them with appropriate datatypes and semantic roles, and use this enhanced information to assist authors and to support downstream processes. Chunk locations, datatypes, and semantic roles can often be automatically determined from what is here called “context”, to wit, the combination of their formatting, structure, and content; those of adjacent or nearby content; overall patterns of occurrence in a document, and similarities of all these things across documents (mainly but not exclusively among documents in the same document set).

  • Publication number: 20240116538
    Abstract: In various examples, sensor data may be collected using one or more sensors of an ego-vehicle to generate a representation of an environment surrounding the ego-vehicle. The representation may include lanes of the roadway and object locations within the lanes. The representation of the environment may be provided as input to a longitudinal speed profile identifier, which may project a plurality of longitudinal speed profile candidates onto a target lane. Each of the plurality of longitudinal speed profiles candidates may be evaluated one or more times based on one or more sets of criteria. Using scores from the evaluation, a target gap and a particular longitudinal speed profile from the longitudinal speed profile candidates may be selected. Once the longitudinal speed profile for a target gap has been determined, the system may execute a lane change maneuver according to the longitudinal speed profile.
