  • Patent number: 11145343
    Abstract: A method for controlling a multi-cycle write leveling process in a memory system is provided. After a write leveling process is completed and before a write training process is performed, the multi-cycle write leveling process is performed. Consequently, when a DDR memory of the memory system receives a clock signal and a first data strobe signal, the DDR memory can confirm that the signal edges of the clock signal and the first data strobe signal are aligned with each other and the signal edges are accurate.

  • Patent number: 9406675
    Abstract: A semiconductor structure and a method for forming the same are provided. The method includes providing a substrate, forming a fin structure extruding from the substrate, forming shallow trench isolations over the substrate, and forming an oxide material over the fin structure. The method further includes forming a carbon-doped amorphous silicon layer or a carbon-doped poly silicon layer over the oxide material, wherein the forming a carbon-doped amorphous silicon layer or a carbon-doped poly silicon layer includes doping carbon in a range of from about 5E19/cm3 to about 1E22/cm3.

  • Publication number: 20120289069
    Abstract: An input/output (I/O) interface blocking device includes a fitting member. The fitting member includes a protruding portion, which includes a first sidewall and a second sidewall opposite to each other. The first sidewall is slanted in a direction allowing the first fitting member to be inserted into a space in an I/O interface receptacle. The second sidewall is configured to block the fitting member from being pulled out of the space in the I/O interface receptacle.

  • Patent number: 7323212
    Abstract: A dummy dispense of liquid is controlled by recording a time at which a substrate is processed; recording a time at which a liquid is dispensed; comparing the time at which the substrate is processed and the time at which the liquid is dispensed to generate a dummy dispense signal when a dummy dispense is required. A system for controlling dummy dispense of liquid includes at least one information storage device storing a time at which a substrate is processed and a time at which a liquid is dispensed. At least one processor compares the time at which the substrate is processed and the time at which the liquid is dispensed to determine whether a dummy dispense is required.

  • Patent number: 7145459
    Abstract: A system for manufacturing control using radio frequency identification (RFID). A trigger issues a trigger signal when activated by user contact. A RFID interrogator retrieves information from a RFID tag when activated. A controller is configured to activate the RFID interrogator, get the relative information from associated systems and control the indicator according to the trigger signal. An indicator provides operating status of the RFID interrogator and/or information getting from the controller.
