  • Patent number: 11183441
    Abstract: The disclosed principles provide a stress buffer layer between an IC die and heat spreader used to dissipate heat from the die. The stress buffer layer comprises distributed pairs of conductive pads and a corresponding set of conductive posts formed on the conductive pads. In one embodiment, the stress buffer layer may comprise conductive pads laterally distributed over non-electrically conducting surfaces of an embedded IC die to thermally conduct heat from the IC die. In addition, such a stress buffer layer may comprise conductive posts laterally distributed and formed directly on each of the conductive pads. Each of the conductive posts thermally conduct heat from respective conductive pads. In addition, each conductive post may have a lateral width less than a lateral width of its corresponding conductive pad. A heat spreader is then formed over the conductive posts which thermally conducts heat from the conductive posts through the heat spreader.

  • Publication number: 20210160460
    Abstract: In a monitoring area such as a resort house area that a user cannot directly monitor, a vehicle owned by the user performs patrol driving to capture an image of a surrounding state and transmits the image to a user terminal and a monitoring server as imaging data. The monitoring server analyzes the imaging data transmitted from the vehicle to determine whether an abnormality occurs in the monitoring area or not, and notifies the user terminal and the vehicle of a determination result. When the vehicle receives an abnormality notice from the monitoring server, the vehicle notifies outside that the abnormality occurs by light or sound.
