  • Patent number: 10651097
    Abstract: Methods and systems for tracking an edge ring includes capturing an edge ring identifier from a source related to the edge ring. The edge ring is inserted into a slot of an edge ring carrier, wherein the edge ring is being assigned to the edge ring carrier. The edge ring identifier is tracked to determine transfers into and out of the edge ring carrier and into and out of a processing station. The tracking of the edge ring identifier builds a metadata file that provides lifetime information regarding the edge ring.

  • Publication number: 20200134387
    Abstract: Certain aspects involve evaluating modeling algorithms whose outputs can impact machine-implemented operating environments. For instance, a computing system generates, from a comparison of a set of estimated attribute values of an attribute to a set of validation attribute values of the attribute, a discretized evaluation dataset with data values in multiple categories. The computing system computes, for a modeling algorithm used to generate the estimated attribute values, an evaluation metric. The computing system provides a host computing system with access to the evaluation metric, one or more modeling outputs generated with the modeling algorithm, or both. Providing one or more of these outputs to the host computing system can facilitate modifying one or more machine-implemented operations.

  • Publication number: 20200122802
    Abstract: Presented here is a system and method for creating easy-to-understand notifications of the vehicle state. The notification can be visual or can be auditory and can indicate to the user the vehicle state even when the user's attention is directed elsewhere. The indication can serve to attract the user's attention before more involved information is presented to the user, such as text, or the indication can serve to communicate to the user the vehicle state in an easy-to-understand way such as using color-coded displays or audio indications. The intensity of the indication can be adjusted based on the likelihood that indication will be perceived by the user by, for example, measuring ambient light and/or ambient noise. Reducing the intensity of the indication conserves energy of an energy source associated with the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 10600793
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes apparatuses and methods for manufacturing programmable memory devices with optimized gate oxide thickness. In some aspects, lithography masks are used to fabricate oxide gates for programmable memory devices of an integrated-circuit (IC) die that are thinner than oxide gates fabricated for processor core devices of the IC die. In other aspects, lithography masks are used to fabricate oxide gates for the programmable memory devices of the IC die such that they are thicker than the oxide gates fabricated for the processor core devices of the IC die. By so doing, the programmable memory devices can be manufactured with optimized gate oxide thickness that may reduce programming voltage or increase device reliability of the programmable memory devices.

  • Publication number: 20200038071
    Abstract: An interspinous process device is configured for placement between adjacent spinous processes on a subject's spine. The device includes a housing configured for mounting to a first spinal process, the housing having a lead screw fixedly secured at one end thereof. A magnetic assembly is at least partially disposed within the housing and configured for mounting to a second spinal process. The magnetic assembly includes a hollow magnet configured for rotation within the magnetic assembly, the hollow magnet comprising a threaded insert configured to engage with the lead screw. An externally applied magnetic field rotates the hollow magnet in a first direction or a second, opposite direction. Rotation of the hollow magnet in the first direction causes telescopic movement of the magnetic assembly out of the housing (i.e., elongation) and rotation in the second direction causes telescopic movement of the magnetic assembly into the housing (i.e., shortening).
