  • Publication number: 20190300011
    Abstract: An information processing device collects information used for analyzing communication performed in an in-vehicle network by ECUs including an ECU which performs predetermined control related to a function of an ADAS. The information processing device includes a receiver, a determiner, and a processor. The receiver receives a plurality of items of communication data sequentially transmitted over the in-vehicle network. The determiner detects a control end time which is a time at which the predetermined control ends, and determine an analysis target period including the control end time. The processor classifies the plurality of items of communication data received by the receiver into analysis target communication data received within the analysis target period and non-analysis target communication data received outside the analysis target period. The processor further performs predetermined processing for analysis of the analysis target communication data based on the classification result.

  • Patent number: 8309462
    Abstract: A photolithographic method for fabricating a pattern which includes a line and a hook-up pad in a semiconductor device, such that the line and the hook-up pad are self-connected to one another by spacer deposition that mitigates a process control issue, and without being misaligned or short circuited. Spacer double patterning lithography can be used. A pattern of sidewall spacer material is formed from a photoresist deposition, conformal spacer material deposition, etching, and removal of the photoresist. A pattern of the sidewall spacer material and a sacrificial layer is formed by performing a further photoresist deposition at a hook-up pad location, a further conformal spacer material deposition, covering part of the sacrificial layer and etching an uncovered part of the sacrificial layer to form a gap. The pattern is transferred to a hard mask layer and then to a wiring layer.
