    Abstract: A semiconductor device with a memory unit of which the variations in the operation timing are reduced is provided. For example, the semiconductor device is provided with dummy bit lines which are arranged collaterally with a proper bit line, and column direction load circuits which are sequentially coupled to the dummy bit lines. Each column direction load circuit is provided with plural NMOS transistors fixed to an off state, predetermined ones of which have the source and the drain suitably coupled to any of the dummy bit lines. Load capacitance accompanying diffusion layer capacitance of the predetermined NMOS transistors is added to the dummy bit lines, and corresponding to the load capacitance, the delay time from a decode activation signal to a dummy bit line signal is set up. The dummy bit line signal is employed when setting the start-up timing of a sense amplifier.

    Abstract: A desired whole slice image corresponding to a whole object is created in a slice image creation device, in which a synthesis processor overlaps a target slice image created by a target slice image creation processor and a support slice image created by a support slice image creation processor. The synthesis processor determines a portion of the overlap region corresponding to a target printing region of the target slice image and/or a support printing region of the support slice image as a whole printing region to be printed, and determines a portion of the overlap region corresponding to both of a target non-printing region of the target slice image and a support non-printing region of the support slice image as a whole non-printing region not to be printed. The synthesis processor colors the whole printing region and the whole non-printing region with different colors to create the whole slice image.
