  • Patent number: 8304908
    Abstract: A multilevel interconnect structure in a semiconductor device includes a first insulating layer formed on a semiconductor wafer, a Cu interconnect layer formed on the first insulating layer, a second insulating layer formed on the Cu interconnect layer, and a metal oxide layer formed at an interface between the Cu interconnect layer and the second insulating layer. The metal oxide layer is formed by immersion-plating a metal, such as Sn or Zn, on the Cu interconnect layer and then heat-treating the plated layer in an oxidizing atmosphere.

  • Patent number: 7573510
    Abstract: Before a moving image is picked up, a data write speed of set recording media 20 is measured or acquired (steps S2-S5, S6). The speed performance of the recording media (represented by “high”, “medium” and “low”) is determined based on the measured or acquired data write speed (step S7). In the moving-image pickup, when the determined write speed performances are low, medium and high, respectively, control passes to a buffer data lump recording mode, a ring buffer recording mode and a stream recording mode, respectively, and then the moving-image data is recorded on recording media 20 in different moving-image recording methods (steps S11, S12 and S13), respectively. Thus, the settable upper limit of recording quality need not be set to that of recording media having low write speed performance.

  • Patent number: 7554686
    Abstract: A camera in which is stored a unique ID is directly or indirectly connected to a printing service site, to which log-in is performed using the ID, whereupon an image from the camera is uploaded to the printing service site, and a printing server distinguishes from the ID which camera the image was uploaded. Printing of the uploaded image can instructed via the printing service site. At the time of printing, when the printing server is calculating the printing charge, the charge is discounted if the image was obtained from a prescribed camera. Alternatively, if the image to be printed was photographed by a camera of a specific manufacturer, a cash-back is issued to the manufacturer in accordance with the number of prints.

  • Patent number: 7466349
    Abstract: An image sensing device that can photograph and play back a moving image simplifies and executes an edit operation for forming one moving image by inserting another image in the middle of a given moving image. A device includes a flash memory (38) which records moving image data, a key input unit (36) which designates an arbitrary time position in the moving image data recorded in the flash memory (38), and a control unit (32) which starts photographing of an image on the basis of designation of the time position, inserts image data obtained by photographing in the moving image data on the basis of the designated time position, and plays back the obtained moving image data.

  • Publication number: 20030174219
    Abstract: A favorite folder (history image folder) is prepared for storing reduced image files. The favorite folder is provided separately from a folder for storing a full image files which are created by a digital camera. The full image file is reduced to create the reduced image file of a small memory size. The reduced image file in the favorite folder can not be deleted in a normal delete mode. Even though the full image files are transferred to another memory device such that of a personal computer, the reduced image files are used for searching or content confirming purpose.

  • Publication number: 20030081142
    Abstract: An electronic device for automatically shutting off a power source is provided with a key input section, and a touch sensor. The key input section includes plural keys and a switch for turning on the power source. When the power source is turned on by operation of the key or the switch, a time period corresponding to the operated key or switch is set for shutting off the power source, a time duration is counted during which no operation is performed, and the power source is shut off when the counted time duration has reached the time period previously set. The power source may automatically be shut off at the time that a user intended, and power consumption is effectively reduced without troublesome operation to turn on and/or off the power source.
