  • Publication number: 20200328099
    Abstract: A plasma processing apparatus includes a stage disposed in a processing chamber for mounting a wafer, a plasma generation chamber disposed above the processing chamber for plasma generation using process gas, a plate member having multiple introduction holes, made of a dielectric material, disposed above the stage and between the processing chamber and the plasma generation chamber, and a lamp disposed around the plate member for heating the wafer. The plasma processing apparatus further includes an external IR light source, an emission fiber arranged in the stage, that outputs IR light from the external IR light source toward a wafer bottom, and a light collection fiber for collecting IR light from the wafer. Data obtained using only IR light from the lamp is subtracted from data obtained also using IR light from the external IR light source during heating of the wafer. Thus, a wafer temperature is determined.

  • Publication number: 20200295688
    Abstract: In a motor control device that controls a sensorless-type motor, a controller estimates an initial magnetic pole position of a rotor of a motor by an inductive sensing scheme while sequentially setting a plurality of energization angles. At each of the set energization angles, the controller converts peak values of currents flowing through a plurality of phases of a stator winding into a first current component having an electrical angle that is equal to a corresponding one of the set energization angles and a second current component that is different in electrical angle by 90 degrees from the first current component, to correct the first current component based on the second current component. The controller estimates the initial magnetic pole position of the rotor based on the corrected first current component that is obtained at each of the set energization angles.

  • Publication number: 20200295689
    Abstract: In a motor control device in one embodiment, an initial position estimation unit estimates an initial position of a magnetic pole of a rotor of a motor in an inductive sensing scheme. At each of energization angles, the initial position estimation unit multiplies a ?-axis current component I? corresponding to a peak value of a current flowing through a stator winding by each of a cosine value and a sine value of a correction angle obtained by correcting each of the energization angles. The initial position estimation unit estimates the initial position of the magnetic pole of the rotor based on a ratio between an integrated value of a multiplication result about the cosine value and an integrated value of a multiplication result about the sine value.
