    Abstract: A semiconductor memory device includes a differential waveform shaping circuit including first and waveform shaping circuits connected in parallel. The first waveform shaping circuit has a first inverting amplifier, and two inverters connected in series. The first inverting amplifier inverts and differentially amplifies an input signal having a rectangular waveform. Then, the output of the first inverting amplifier is passed through the two inverters.

  • Patent number: 10771032
    Abstract: To improve the Q value of a piezoelectric thin-film element in a state in which unnecessary vibration is suppressed, an acoustic reflection film (104) is affixed to a first electrode (102), a piezoelectric single-crystal substrate (101) is thinned by polishing from the other surface (101b) of the piezoelectric single-crystal substrate (101), such that the first electrode (102) and piezoelectric thin film (105) are piled on the piezoelectric single-crystal substrate (101). In this polishing, a pressure (polishing pressure) to the surface (101b) during polishing in an electrode formation region where the first electrode (102) is formed differs from that in a non-electrode formation region around the electrode formation region. Consequently, the electrode formation region of the piezoelectric thin film (105), where the first electrode (102) is formed, is made thinner than the non-electrode formation region around the electrode formation region.

  • Patent number: 10545017
    Abstract: The purpose of the present invention is to provide an overlay error measuring device which measures an overlay error with high accuracy even when a lower layer pattern is disposed under a thin film and a sufficient signal amount cannot be ensured. The present invention proposes an overlay error measuring device provided with an arithmetic processing unit for measuring a pattern formed on a sample on the basis of a signal waveform obtained by a charged particle beam device. The arithmetic processing unit finds a correlation with the signal waveform using a partial waveform obtained on the basis of partial extraction of the signal waveform, forms a correlation profile indicating the correlation, and measures an overlay error using the correlation profile.
