  • Patent number: 9893887
    Abstract: A dynamic licensing method, implemented in an integrated system, includes, responsive to an end user requesting a third-party application through the integrated system; determining a license key, for the third-party application, in the integrated system using a public key associated with the integrated system; receiving an encrypted validation result from a system associated with the third-party application that validates the license key using a private key and software provided with the integrated system, wherein the system returns the encrypted validation results to the third-party application which provides the encrypted validation results to the integrated system; and decrypting the encrypted validation results using previously allocated session key and determining whether to run the third-party application based on the validation results.

  • Patent number: 6733367
    Abstract: The invention shows a workpiece template and a number of additional elements for forming wafers of varying thicknesses=. The template is formed of a main disk including a plurality of cavities extending through a main plate with either a frictionless material or a backing plate forming the cavity base. The template shows additional elements to aid in the lapping/polishing abrasive fluid movement in the form of spiraling channels moving across the top surface of the template. The channels can extend through the template cavity walls. Also shown are the improvement previously stated applied to a template having notched gear-like teeth for another type of lapping/polishing machine.

  • Patent number: 6666948
    Abstract: An method and apparatus for forming wafers of varying thickness'. The apparatus includes a template. The template is formed of a main disk including a plurality of cavities extending into a first side thereof and a backing plate positioned on a side of the main disk opposite the first side. Holding disks are moistened and positioned within respective cavities for releasably securing a wafer in the cavity. When the template is releasably secured to and rotatable with a rotating head and positioned such that the first side faces a lapping and polishing surface, wafers received by the cavities are lapped and polished upon rotation of the rotating head. A plurality of shims are selectively received within respective cavities between a base of the cavity and the holding disk for adjusting a depth of the cavity thereby adjusting an amount of a wafer to be lapped and polished. The shims have varying thickness' and are color coated, each color being representative of a predetermined thickness for the shim.

  • Patent number: 6645049
    Abstract: An method and apparatus for forming wafers of varying thickness'. The apparatus includes a template. The template is formed of a main disk including a plurality of cavities extending into a first side thereof. Each cavity has notches cut in the walls thereof and a pattern etched in the base thereof. Holding disks are moistened and positioned within respective cavities for releasably securing a wafer in the cavity. A moistening liquid is dispensed and diffuses into the cavities via the notches cut in the walls and collects in the pattern etched on the base of the cavity thereby increasing the suctional force used to secure the holding disk. When the template is releasably secured within a cavity, rotatably connected to a rotating head and positioned such that the first side faces a lapping and polishing surface, wafers received by the cavities are lapped and polished upon rotation of the rotating head.
