Abstract: Properties of a semiconductor device are improved. A semiconductor device having a superjunction structure, in which p-type column regions and n-type column regions are periodically arranged, is configured as follows. Each n-type column region has a vertical section including an n-type epitaxial layer located between trenches and a tapered embedded n-type epitaxial film disposed on a side face of the trench. Each p-type column region includes an embedded p-type epitaxial film disposed within the trench. The tapered embedded n-type epitaxial film is thus provided on the sidewall of the trench in which the p-type column region is to be disposed, thereby the p-type column region is allowed to have an inverted trapezoidal shape, leading to an increase in margin for a variation in concentration of a p-type impurity in the p-type column region. On resistance can be reduced by lateral diffusion of an n-type impurity (for example, As).
Abstract: In a vertical power MOSFET having a superjunction structure, the withstand voltage of the power MOSFET can be ensured even if the aspect ratios of an n-type column region and a p-type column region are increased so as to vary the impurity concentration of the p-type column region. P-type semiconductor regions PR1 are formed on the sides of an n-type column NC1 adjacent to a p-type column region PC1. In this configuration, the p-type semiconductor region PR1 is formed from the upper end of the n-type column region NC1 to about a half depth of a height from the upper end to the lower end of the side of the n-type column region NC1. This inclines the sides of the overall p-type column region including the p-type semiconductor regions PR1 and the p-type column region PC1.

Abstract: A detection apparatus 30 stores a determination list (A1601) for determining whether there is unauthorized communication, receives a communication packet (A1501) flowing in a control system, determines whether a valid data pattern in the determination list (A1601) and a data pattern relating to the communication packet (A1501) match each other. When the valid data pattern in the determination list (A1601) and the data pattern relating to the communication packet do not match each other, the detection apparatus 30 calculates a similarity degree between the valid data pattern in the determination list and the data pattern relating to the communication packet, and determines whether the similarity degree satisfies a predetermined condition. When the similarity degree is determined not to satisfy the predetermined condition, the detection apparatus 30 determines that the communication packet (A1501) is an unauthorized communication packet.
