  • Publication number: 20200266111
    Abstract: Compressive and tensile stress is induced, respectively, on semiconductor fins in the pFET and nFET regions of a monolithic semiconductor structure including FinFETs. A tensile stressor is formed from dielectric material and a second, compressive stressor is formed from metal. The stressors may be formed in fin cut regions of the monolithic semiconductor structure and are configured to provide stress in the direction of FinFET current flow. The dielectric material may be deposited on the monolithic semiconductor structure and later removed from the fin cut regions of the pFET region. Metal exhibiting compressive residual stress is then deposited in the fin cut regions from which the dielectric material was removed. Gate cut regions may also be filled with the dielectric stressor material to impart substantially uniaxial tensile stress perpendicular to the semiconductor fins and perpendicular to electrical current flow.

  • Publication number: 20200219597
    Abstract: A system and method for recording video healthcare information of an individual under care without deleting data, includes a device for capturing data and configured to transmit a signal identifying the device, a memory for storing rules, a buffer, a database; and a processor. The processor receives the device identification signal and said data, and retrieves the rules from the memory. Based on the rules, the processor determines, whether the data is to be stored in the database or the buffer. Based on the content of the data, the processor determines the device location, the data recordation time and date, whether the individual under care is identified, and the individual's activity, and based on the rules and the location, time and date, individual identification, and activity, whether the data is proof of service delivery data to be stored in the database or eliminated from the buffer.
