  • Publication number: 20210215753
    Abstract: An inspection system may include a controller communicatively coupled to one or more in-line sample analysis tools including, but not limited to, an inspection tool or a metrology tool. The controller may identify defects in a population of dies based on data received from at least one of the one or more in-line sample analysis tools, assign weights to the identified defects indicative of predicted impact of the identified defects on reliability of the dies using a weighted defectivity model, generate defectivity scores for the dies in the population by aggregating the weighted defects in the respective dies in the population, and determine a set of outlier dies based on the defectivity scores for the dies in the population, wherein at least some of the set of outlier dies are isolated from the population.

  • Patent number: 6072402
    Abstract: A secure entry system makes use of radio transmissions to communicate with locks, keys, and related components throughout the system. The radio transmissions can be made using a paging system, a cellular telephone system, or any other RF carrier. Some embodiments employ a cellular telephone in lieu of an electronic key. Others integrate a paging receiver within an electronic key to provide a unit with dual functionality. The system is illustrated with reference to exemplary applications in the industrial site security, real estate lockbox, and transportation fields.

  • Patent number: 4947163
    Abstract: A key for an electronic lock system is provided with circuitry capable of performing a plurality of lock-related functions. Stored in the key is characterization data that determines the key's particular functionality be electronically disabling certain ones of these functions, leaving just a subset of functions from which the operator may select. Keys having various capabilities can thus be electronically tailored from a single master design.
