  • Publication number: 20190296541
    Abstract: A mobile application includes a motive power circuit having a power storage device and an electrical load, where the power storage device and the electrical load are selectively electrically coupled through a power bus. The application includes a power distribution unit (PDU) electrically interposed between the power storage device and the electrical load, where the PDU includes a breaker/relay positioned on one of a high side and a low side of the power storage device. The breaker/relay includes a fixed contact and a moveable contact selectively electrically coupled to the fixed contact, where the moveable contact allows power flow through the power bus when electrically coupled to the fixed contact, and prevents power flow through the power bus when not electrically coupled to the fixed contact. The breaker/relay includes an armature coupled to the moveable contact, and capable to open or close the motive power circuit.

  • Patent number: 8951900
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to, among other things, an illustrative method that includes forming an opening in a dielectric material of a contact level of a semiconductor device, and selectively depositing a conductive material in the opening to form a contact element therein, the contact element extending to a contact area of a circuit element and having a laterally restricted excess portion formed outside of the opening and above the dielectric material. The disclosed method further includes forming a sacrificial material layer above the dielectric material and the contact element, the sacrificial material layer surrounding the laterally restricted excess portion. Additionally, the method includes planarizing a surface topography of the contact level in the presence of the sacrificial material so as to remove the laterally restricted excess portion from above the dielectric material.

  • Patent number: 8450197
    Abstract: Contact elements in the contact level of a semiconductor device may be formed on the basis of a selective deposition technique, such as electroless plating, wherein an efficient planarization of the contact level is achieved without subjecting the contact elements to undue mechanical stress. In some illustrative embodiments, an overfilling of the contact openings may be reliably avoided and the planarization of the surface topography is accomplished on the basis of a non-critical polishing process. In other cases, electrochemical etch techniques are applied in combination with a conductive sacrificial current distribution layer in order to remove any excess material of the contact elements without inducing undue mechanical stress.

  • Publication number: 20060266652
    Abstract: By evaluating a dynamic failure signal, such as a voltage signal and/or a current signal, obtained during an electroplating operation for forming solder bumps, an inline control system with a responsiveness on a substrate basis may be established. Thus, the electroplating tool may be controlled on a single wafer basis to improve process uniformity and also significantly reduce yield loss.

  • Patent number: 7055134
    Abstract: Methods and data processing apparatus, including computer program products, providing and implementing an integration framework for service providers, where a persistent object identifier object is used to provide a general reference to a persistent object of a service provider. A service provider has a service provider client, a service provider backend, and a service provider repository for storing service provider persistent objects. The service provider provides to its objects the services of storage of persistent objects in the service provider repository; visualization of objects in the service provider client, and access to objects in the service provider backend. The framework has a client framework and a backend framework. The client framework communicates directly with the backend framework, and the backend framework performs non-visual operations on the service provider backend.

  • Patent number: 6430563
    Abstract: A system and method for storage and management of multiple versions and context variants of documents in a multi-user environment is provided by a three-tiered content system/model for storage and a context resolution mechanism for retrieval. It utilizes three classes consisting of logical objects, physical objects, and components that contain administrative data associated with physical objects. The physical objects that belong to the same logical object (a collection) may be context specific variants (based on content, format, language, etc.) of each other, or related by a different criteria. The context resolution mechanism retrieves the most appropriate variant of an object through correlation of attributes of physical objects encapsulated by a particular logical object and attributes of a front-end client application. The system comprises a logical hyperlink mechanism that allows physical links between objects to be resolved at run-time.

  • Patent number: 6134552
    Abstract: A system and method is described for the efficient management and storage of documents in a multi-user environment by implementing a three-tiered content model for storage and a context resolution mechanism for retrieval. Source objects may logically reference target objects where the target objects dynamically exist in different versions. In particular, the content model contains three classes in a collection wherein each subsequent class inherits the properties of the previous class. The classes comprise logical objects, physical objects, and components. All physical objects that belong to the same logical object are context specific variants, such as different versions of each other. Physical objects in a collection can be related by different criteria, as well as by user-defined relations. The system provides for versioning of objects, such as variations based on content, format, language, etc.
