  • Patent number: 10516623
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a cloud computing system provides user extensibility by providing a plugin interface for major systems. Plugin interfaces for a compute service, object service, network service, authentication and authorization service, message service, and image service are disclosed. One or more of the plugin interfaces can be used to alter the allocation of virtual to physical resources across multiple services. Compound services and smart allocation facilities are possible with user-directed modification.

  • Patent number: 10426474
    Abstract: A sutureless device and methods for closing a tissue opening that minimizes the labor, cost, and skill typically required is disclosed. The apparatus comprises two anchors that attach to either side of an open tissue wound. The two anchors are connected together by a tie strip; the tie strip has a plurality of teeth and a rack. As the wound edges and anchors are brought together the ratchet system on the tie strip prevents the anchors and tissue wound from reopening. To control the distance between the two anchors, a rack and pinion system and a key or a lever system is utilized. The rack is located on the tie strip and the pinion is located on the key.

  • Patent number: 8603252
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for cleaning residue from components of semiconductor processing systems used in the fabrication of microelectronic devices. To effectively remove residue, the components are contacted with a gas-phase reactive material for sufficient time and under sufficient conditions to at least partially remove the residue. When the residue and the material from which the components are constructed are different, the gas-phase reactive material is selectively reactive with the residue and minimally reactive with the materials from which the components of the ion implanter are constructed. When the residue and the material from which the components are constructed is the same, then the gas-phase reactive material may be reactive with both the residue and the component part.

  • Patent number: 7819981
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for cleaning residue from components of an ion source region of an ion implanter used in the fabrication of microelectronic devices. To effectively remove residue, the components are contacted with a gas-phase reactive halide composition for sufficient time and under sufficient conditions to at least partially remove the residue. The gas-phase reactive halide composition is chosen to react selectively with the residue, while not reacting with the components of the ion source region or the vacuum chamber.

  • Publication number: 20100180955
    Abstract: A gas cabinet including an enclosure containing at least one gas supply vessel and flow circuitry coupled to the gas supply vessel(s). The flow circuitry is constructed and arranged to flow dispensed gas from an on-stream gas supply vessel to multiple sticks of the flow circuitry, with each of the multiple sticks being joined in gas flow communication to a respective gas-utilizing process unit. The flow circuitry is valved to enable sections of the flow circuitry associated with respective ones of the multiple sticks to be isolated from other sections of the flow circuitry, so that process gas can be flowed to one or more of the sticks, while other sticks are being evacuated and purged, or otherwise are closed to dispensed gas flow therethrough.

  • Publication number: 20100112795
    Abstract: A first method for producing a doped region in a semiconductor substrate includes performing a first implant step in which a carborane cluster molecule is implanted into a semiconductor substrate to form a doped region. A second method for producing a semiconductor device having a shallow junction region includes providing a first gas and a second gas in a container. The first gas includes a first dopant and the second gas includes a second dopant. The second method also includes implanting the first and second dopants into a semiconductor substrate using an ion. The ion source is not turned off between the steps of implanting the first dopant and implanting the second dopant.

    Abstract: A multi-chip package comprising at least a first die and a second die, wherein each die comprises an integrated circuit (IC) disposed thereon. Each of the first die and the second die comprise a plurality of contact pads coupled with the respective IC. The contact pads on the first IC comprise a first mode pad coupled to a first device formed on the first die, and the contact pads on the second IC comprise a second mode pad coupled to a second device formed on the second die. The first mode pad is coupled to a first potential and causes the first device to operate in a first mode. The second mode pad is coupled to a second potential and causes the second device to operate in a second mode. The first and second mode are selected based on the relative position of the first and second die.
