  • Patent number: 8782626
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide a method, system and computer program product for heuristically generated suggestions in static code analysis. In an embodiment of the invention, a method for heuristically suggesting an asset transition in a code analysis tool can include receiving from an end user a request to select an asset of a computer program subject to static code analysis by a code analysis tool and selecting in response and contemporaneously to the request, an asset from amongst many assets during static code analysis of a computer program in a code analysis tool. The method further can include determining a set of assets amongst the many assets historically selected by other users of the code analysis tool during static code analysis subsequent to a selection of the contemporaneously selected asset.

  • Patent number: 8298433
    Abstract: A method for generating plasma for removing an edge polymer from a substrate is provided. The method includes providing a powered electrode assembly, which includes a powered electrode, a dielectric layer, and a wire mesh disposed between the powered electrode and the dielectric layer. The method also includes providing a grounded electrode assembly disposed opposite the powered electrode assembly to form a cavity wherein the plasma is generated. The wire mesh is shielded from the plasma by the dielectric layer when the plasma is present in the cavity, which has an outlet at one end for providing the plasma to remove the edge polymer. The method further includes introducing at least one inert gas and at least one process gas into the cavity. The method yet also includes applying an RF field to the cavity using the powered electrode to generate the plasma from the inert gas and process gas.

  • Publication number: 20120118320
    Abstract: Methods for cleaning an edge of a semiconductor substrate include providing a brush in a housing, the housing provides a volume for holding the brush. A cleaning fluid is inserted into the housing to at least partially fill the volume holding the brush, with the cleaning fluid. The cleaning fluid is removed from the volume of the housing while the cleaning fluid is being inserted. The brush is rotated within the housing while the cleaning fluid is inserted and removed. The edge of the semiconductor substrate is inserted into a slot of the housing. The edge of the semiconductor substrate inserted into the slot is maintained at a distance and for a period of time. The distance is configured such that the brush contacts the edge of the semiconductor substrate but continues to enable rotation of the brush within the housing.

  • Patent number: 8127395
    Abstract: An apparatus, system and method for cleaning a substrate edge include a bristle brush unit that cleans bevel polymers deposited on substrate edges using frictional contact in the presence of cleaning chemistry. The bristle brush unit is made up of a plurality of outwardly extending vanes and is mounted on a rotating shaft. An abrasive material is distributed throughout and within the outwardly extending vanes of the bristle brush unit to provide the frictional contact. The bristle brush unit cleans the edge of the substrate by allowing frictional contact of the plurality of abrasive particles with the edge of the substrate in the presence of fluids, such as cleaning chemistry, to cut, rip and tear the bevel polymer from the edge of the substrate.
