  • Patent number: 10770363
    Abstract: A semiconductor substrate support for supporting a semiconductor substrate in a plasma processing chamber includes a heater array comprising thermal control elements operable to tune a spatial temperature profile on the semiconductor substrate, the thermal control elements defining heater zones each of which is powered by two or more power supply lines and two or more power return lines wherein each power supply line is connected to at least two of the heater zones and each power return line is connected to at least two of the heater zones. A power distribution circuit is mated to a baseplate of the substrate support, the power distribution circuit being connected to each power supply line and power return line of the heater array. A switching device is connected to the power distribution circuit to independently provide time-averaged power to each of the heater zones by time divisional multiplexing of a plurality of switches.

  • Publication number: 20200180411
    Abstract: An articulating slanted back soft top assembly for 4-door and 2-door SUVs. A fabric cover is supported by a frame that is at least partially articulatable from at least a closed position to at least one open air position. The frame includes at least one forward fabric support bow member and at least one rearward fabric support bow member. The rear fabric support bow member being positioned when in the closed position in a manner which allows the fabric to clear a sport bar or “roll bar” member of a vehicle in the closed position such that a rear portion of the top is angled from the vertical when viewing the vehicle from the side.

  • Patent number: 10605054
    Abstract: A system includes a schedule generator having one or more processors configured to obtain resource extraction parameters for extracting a resource from a reservoir. The resource extraction parameters include well creation parameters associated with drilling wellbores, well stimulation parameters associated with introducing fracturing fluid into the wellbores, and production parameters associated with extracting the resource through the wellbores. The schedule generator selects initial trial schedules having different values of the resource extraction parameters and receives initial resource output data generated by execution of the initial trial schedules with a designated reservoir model. The schedule generator generates a surrogate model based on the initial resource output data and the initial trial schedules and uses the surrogate model to perform iterations of selecting modified trial schedules until a predetermined condition is satisfied.
