  • Patent number: 10714596
    Abstract: A method for forming a fin device includes forming semiconductor fins over a first dielectric layer. A second dielectric layer is directionally deposited into or on the first dielectric layer and on tops of the fins on horizontal surfaces. The second dielectric layer is configured to protect the first dielectric layer in subsequent processing. Sidewalls of the fins are precleaned while the first dielectric layer is protected by the second dielectric layer. The second dielectric layer is removed to expose the first dielectric layer in a protected state.

  • Patent number: 10708000
    Abstract: Techniques for contention window size (CWS) adaptation (CWSA) are discussed. One example apparatus can comprise a processor that can receive HARQ messages UEs in response to PDSCH transmissions in one or more reference subframes. The HARQ messages can comprise HARQ-ACK values that denote a HARQ-ACK state for a transport block associated with License Assisted Access (LAA) operation, wherein each of the HARQ-ACK states is one of a DTX state, an ACK state, a NACK state, or an “any” state. The processor can also; determine a metric value for each of the HARQ-ACK states; calculate a CWS adjustment metric based on the determined metric values; increase a CWS to a next higher allowed value when the CWS adjustment metric is greater than or equal to a threshold; and reset the CWS to a minimum allowed value when the CWS adjustment metric is less than the threshold.

  • Patent number: 10700136
    Abstract: A pixel structure and an organic light emitting display are disclosed. The pixel structure includes a plurality of pixels which includes a plurality of sub-pixels. At least one pixel forms a pixel unit, and longitudinally adjacent pixel units are arranged in a vertical mirror image, and/or laterally adjacent pixel units are arranged in a horizontal mirror image. The present disclosure may increase the area of mask opening during evaporation, reduce the difficulty of mask production process, and reduce the evaporation process difficulty by a reasonable pixel arrangement structure and allowing sub-pixels of adjacent pixels to share one mask opening to evaporate. It does not need to preset a gap during evaporating the sub-pixels of adjacent pixels of the mask, thereby a real high PPI is achieved while keeping the opening ratio. In addition, the present disclosure can further increase the strength of the mask.
