  • Patent number: 8442671
    Abstract: A system (1), a method and an operating unit (62) for the creation of mixed layers for pallets (81, 82, 83, 84) are disclosed. A storage (10) is provided in which at least two different pack types are stored on a plurality of pallets (81, 82, 83, 84), including a plurality of layers of homogenous packs. The packs are intermediately stored in a plurality of individual, parallel conveyors (301, 302, . . . 30N) in a homogenous state. Based on the input of a user (5) on a touch panel (62), the packs are supplied to a grouping table (50) via a supply conveyor (40) in a predetermined sequence. A controller (60) is associated with the system (1) so that, in the grouping table (50), individual different pack types are allocated to the predefined positions of the different pack types as a function of predefined positions of the different pack types in a layer pattern (14) of a layer (24) of a production pallet (12).

  • Publication number: 20100099253
    Abstract: One implementation is a method for fabricating a semiconductor on a substrate. A first layer is formed on the substrate. An implanted pattern is introduced into the first layer by implanting using a structured implantation mask arranged over the first layer. A structured second layer is formed on the first layer after removing the implantation mask. A first pattern is generated in the substrate using the second layer as a mask. The first layer is developed with regard to the implanted pattern. A second pattern is generated in the substrate using the first layer as a mask.

  • Patent number: 7691736
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention provide a semiconductor device having dielectric material and its method of manufacture. A method comprises a short (?2 sec) flash activation of an ILD surface followed by flowing a precursor such as silane, DEMS, over the activated ILD surface. The precursor reacts with the activated ILD surface thereby selectively protecting the ILD surface. The protected ILD surface is resistant to plasma processing damage. The protected ILD surface eliminates the requirement of using a hard mask to protect a dielectric from plasma damage.

  • Patent number: 7688597
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a power supply circuit comprising at least one transformer which is connected to a primary side circuit and to a secondary side circuit. The present invention further relates to a method for producing such a power supply circuit. To provide an improved power supply circuit which has a reduced size and increased power density and offers more flexibility in the formation of the safety distances between primary side and secondary side, the primary side circuit and the secondary side circuit are each mounted on at least one separate circuit carrier, said circuit carriers being mechanically and electrically coupled to one another and arranged in at least two different planes. According to advantageous embodiments, said circuit carriers may be arranged in planes that are either parallel with or transverse to one another.
