  • Publication number: 20190233224
    Abstract: A vacuum processing apparatus having a small installation area is provided. A lifting plate is arranges inside a vacuum chamber, and a substrate holding device is arranged on the lifting plate to be able to be lifted up and down. An upper side processing device and a lower side processing device are provided in a processing region located beside a lifting region where the lifting plate moves up and down. An upper side moving device and a lower side moving device make the substrate holding device pass through the processing region, and a transfer device transfers the substrate holding device between the upper side moving device or the lower side moving device and the lifting plate. Because vacuum processing can be performed on the upper side and the lower side, the installation area of the vacuum processing apparatus is small.

  • Patent number: 10362436
    Abstract: An example of an information processing system includes a plurality of user terminals and a server capable of communicating with each user terminal. The server transmits a content to the user terminal. The user terminal executes a first program for displaying a content, thereby displaying on a display apparatus the content received from the server. The user terminal stores related image information indicating a related image related to the content. When executing a second program, which is a program that is different from the first program and can be executed in the user terminal, the user terminal displays on the display apparatus an image by changing an image based on the second program, using the related image information.

  • Publication number: 20190207826
    Abstract: An apparatus obtains, from a first device, an identifier of a higher-order service for which occurrence of an abnormality or a possibility of being affected by an abnormality has been detected, where the first device searches for a range of effects of failure within a higher-order service layer that provides a higher-order service using a service provided in an object-service layer within a cloud service providing a layered structure of services. The apparatus determines a service within the object-service layer, which is reachable by tracing relations among services from the detected higher-order service, to be an in-effect-range service for which there is a possibility of being affected by an abnormality, and transmits the identifier of the in-effect-range service to a second device that searches for a range of effects of failure at a lower-order service layer that provides a lower-order service used to provide a service within the object-service layer.
