  • Patent number: 10290647
    Abstract: A source select level silicon nitride layer and an alternating stack of insulating layers and sacrificial silicon nitride layers are formed over a substrate. A memory opening is formed through the alternating stack and the source select level silicon nitride layer. The source select level silicon nitride layer is laterally recessed farther than the sacrificial silicon nitride layers employing an isotropic etch process. A pedestal channel portion including a laterally protruding annular portion is formed at a bottom region of the memory opening. A memory stack structure is formed on the pedestal channel portion in the memory opening. The source select level silicon nitride layer and the sacrificial silicon nitride layers are replaced with a source select level electrically conductive layer and word line electrically conductive layers, respectively.

  • Patent number: 9600161
    Abstract: A method displays a copy of a specified display area on a computer display. A first signal is received from a user. The first signal specifies a display area on a display as a specified display area. The specified display area presents a dynamic activity being performed on a computer. A second signal is received from the user to identify a particular object in the specified display area. A copy of the specified display area, which includes only the particular object, is generated. The copy of the specified display area has a same shape as the specified display area, presents the dynamic activity being performed on the computer, and is displayed on the display.

  • Patent number: 9299055
    Abstract: To avoid the need for off-line collaboration, a primary user who is attempting to enter data required for computer-based process may, as part of the data entry process, delegate data entry tasks for specific input fields to designated delegate users who are more likely to be knowledgeable about the data to be entered. Data entry operations performed by the primary user are recorded and used to build a transaction model which will enable a server to provide required data input screens to delegate users. Data entered by the delegate users is merged with data entered by the primary user to meet the requirements of the computer-based process.

  • Patent number: 9224637
    Abstract: Contact holes of different depths for source, drain, and gate connections are formed by common etch steps using a relatively low etch rate material over the gate electrode and a relatively high etch rate material over the source and drain terminals to provide similar etch times for all three holes so that risk of over-etching is reduced.
