  • Patent number: 9652472
    Abstract: A service requirement analysis system includes a service provider database and an analysis server. The service provider database stores multiple service provider data entries, and is connected to a client device. The analysis server receives a service requirement string, and performs segmentation and filtering to obtain requirement keywords. The correlation values quantifying semantic relatedness between any two of the requirement keywords are calculated to construct a requirement keyword connected graph for dividing the requirement keywords into one or more requirement keyword groups associated with one or more concepts in the service requirement string. A semantic hierarchical structure of each of the requirement keyword groups is constructed for searching the service provider database to obtain service provider data entries matching the service requirement string. The matched entries are displayed on the client device.

  • Patent number: 5496409
    Abstract: A semiconductor wafer processing system is disclosed which reduces particle accumulations in the wafer loading chamber during the pump down and vent cycle. A separate venting tube is provided which is positioned within the roughing tube used for the pump-down cycle. The venting tube is isolated from particulate matter which may be present in the roughing tube so that venting gas flow does not cause re-entry of the residual particulate matter into the loading chamber. The venting tube can be easily and inexpensively installed as a particle reduction kit into existing wafer processing systems.
