    Abstract: An integrated circuit (IC) comprising an enhanced passivation scheme for pad openings and trenches is provided. In some embodiments, an interlayer dielectric (ILD) layer covers a substrate and at least partially defines a trench. The trench extends through the ILD layer from a top of the ILD layer to the substrate. A conductive pad overlies the ILD layer. A first passivation layer overlies the ILD layer and the conductive pad, and further defines a pad opening overlying the conductive pad. A second passivation layer overlies the ILD layer, the conductive pad, and the first passivation layer, and further lines sidewalls of the first passivation layer in the pad opening and sidewalls of the ILD layer in the trench. Further, the second passivation layer has a low permeability for moisture or vapor relative to the ILD layer.

  • Publication number: 20200389376
    Abstract: Methods and system for supporting multiple management interfaces using a network analytics engine. The network analytics engine can run on a core switch for performing data collection and monitoring of network traffic through the switch. The switch can receive a first list including a first set of network packet parameters for monitoring network traffic using certain monitoring criteria. Then, the switch can receive a second list including a second set of network packet parameters for monitoring network traffic in accordance using different monitoring criteria. The switch can generate a concatenated list including the first list and the single list to form a single set of packet parameters. Concatenation may be consistent with a determined sequential order and priorities assigned to the lists. The switch can be programmed with the concatenated list such that network monitoring is accomplished using both monitoring criteria, while only implemented a single concatenated list.

  • Patent number: 10860411
    Abstract: A method implemented by a network element (NE) in a distributed system, the method comprising tracing an execution of a program in the distributed system to produce a record of the execution of the program, wherein the record indicates states of shared resources at various times during the execution of the program, identifying a vulnerable operation that occurred during the program execution based on the record, wherein the record indicates that a first shared resource of the shared resources is in a flawed state after a node that caused the first shared resource to be in the flawed state crashed, and determining that the vulnerable operation results in a time of fault (TOF) bug based on performing a fault-tolerance mechanism.
