  • Patent number: 10720324
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a semiconductor device is provided. The method includes forming a film on a substrate by causing a first precursor and a second precursor to intermittently react with each other by repeating a cycle a plurality of times, the cycle alternately performing supplying the first precursor, which satisfies an octet rule and has a first pyrolysis temperature, to the substrate and supplying the second precursor, which does not satisfy the octet rule and has a second pyrolysis temperature lower than the first pyrolysis temperature, to the substrate. In the act of forming the film, a supply amount of the first precursor is set larger than a supply amount of the second precursor.

  • Publication number: 20200225286
    Abstract: A test apparatus is configured to test a DUT that does not support synchronous control from an external circuit. A main controller is configured based on an architecture that tests a device by synchronous control with the main controller itself as the master. A MIU is configured as an interface between the main controller and the DUT. The MIU establishes asynchronous control between it and the DUT with the DUT as the master, and establishes control between it and the main controller with the main controller as the master.
