  • Publication number: 20200096569
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a processor includes a scan system controller to control test operations on the processor in response to test commands from an external test entity, and at least one core to execute instructions. The processor may further include a field scan controller to control a field test mode of the processor to perform a self-test of the at least one core during field operation, where the field scan controller is to obtain a test pattern from an external memory and cause the scan system controller to test circuitry of the first subsystem using the test pattern. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Publication number: 20170167009
    Abstract: A method for forming a chromium nitride coating over a substrate to provide a chromium nitride coated article, and the resulting chromium nitride coated article, each use a bilayer chromium nitride containing material layer deposited over a UV-absorbing material layer deposited over a leveling material layer on the substrate. The bilayer chromium nitride containing material layer includes: (1) a first chromium nitride material layer having a first thickness, a first uniform chromium concentration and a first uniform nitrogen concentration located and formed closer to a substrate which provides the article; and (2) a second chromium nitride material layer having a second thickness, a second increasingly graded chromium concentration and a second decreasingly graded nitrogen concentration located and formed upon the first chromium nitride material layer. This particular bilayer chromium nitride containing material layer provides the article with superior reflectivity and crack resistance.

  • Patent number: 5071206
    Abstract: Visually transparent, color corrected, infra-red reflecting films are disclosed for solar heat control. The films employ Fabry-Perot sandwich interference filters which are characterized by having three or more transparent layers of sputter-deposited metal such as silver directly contiguous with dielectric spacer layers and optionally boundary layers. Methods for producing these materials by sputtering techniques as well as glazing materials incorporating these films are disclosed, as well.
