  • Publication number: 20220380253
    Abstract: A glass substrate according to one or more embodiments is disclosed. The glass substrate includes an alkali-containing bulk, at least one first alkali-depleted region, and at least one second alkali-depleted region. The alkali-containing bulk has a first surface and a second surfaces with the first and second surfaces opposing one another. The at least one first alkali-depleted region extends into the alkali-containing bulk from the first surface. The at least one second alkali-depleted region extends into the alkali-containing bulk from the second surface. The first alkali-depleted region and the second alkali-depleted region are amorphous and have a substantially homogenous composition. The first alkali-depleted region in some embodiments is a first alkali-depleted surface layer that extends across the alkali-containing bulk. The first alkali-depleted region in some embodiments is plurality of first alkali-depleted regions that are spaced apart from one another.

  • Publication number: 20220384645
    Abstract: High voltage isolation devices for semiconductor devices and associated systems, are disclosed herein. The isolation device may support operations of a 3-dimensional NAND memory array of the semiconductor device. In some embodiments, during high voltage operations (e.g., erase operations), the isolation device may provide a high voltage to the memory array while isolating other circuitry supporting low voltage operations of the memory array from the high voltage. The isolation device may include a set of narrow active areas separating the low voltage circuitry from the high voltage and a gate over the narrow active areas. In a further embodiment, the isolation device includes interdigitated narrow active areas and a common gate over the interdigitated narrow active areas to reduce an area occupied by the isolation devices.

  • Publication number: 20220382502
    Abstract: A computer-generated scene is generated as background for a live action set, for display on a panel of light emitting diodes (LEDs). Characteristics of light output by the LED panel are controlled such that the computer-generated scene rendered on the LED panel, when captured by a motion picture camera, has high fidelity to the original computer-generated scene. Consequently, the scene displayed on the screen more closely simulates the rendered scene from the viewpoint of the camera. Thus, a viewpoint captured by the camera appears more realistic and/or truer to the creative intent.

  • Publication number: 20220382882
    Abstract: A system, product and process for building a package dependencies data structure. The method comprises determining a package instance identifier of the package to be processed. The package instance identifier is determined based on a unique identifier of the package to be processed and based on a unique identifier of a dependency sub-tree of the package to be processed in the package instance identifier. The package instance identifier is utilized to determine if a node representing the package to be processed exists or not. In case the node does not exist already in the data structure, the node is created and added.
