  • Patent number: 10789253
    Abstract: A storage device, connected to a computer including a processor and first memory, and executing a program, stores data processed under the program. The computer includes a protocol processing unit that accesses data in the storage device, an accelerator that includes an arithmetic unit executing a part of a process of the program, and a second memory storing data, and executes the part of the process. The first memory receives a processing request for processing data, and causes the accelerator to execute a command to process data, corresponding to the processing request for the processing request including a process to be executed by the arithmetic unit. The accelerator requests the protocol processing unit to provide target data indicated by a command received from the program, reads data from the storage device via the protocol processing unit, and stores the data in the second memory. The arithmetic unit executes the command.

  • Patent number: 10747773
    Abstract: A database management system (DBMS) manages a database existing in a second storage device with an access speed lower than that of a first storage device. In an execution of a query, the DBMS dynamically generates tasks two or more executable tasks in parallel. The DBMS generates task start information which is information representing a content of the execution of the task, manages the task start information, and executes a content represented by the task start information by the task. The task start information includes a data address set existing in the second storage device. The DBMS controls movement of the data address sets between the first storage device and the second storage device based on a management state of the task start information. In addition, the DBMS selects the task start information based on whether or not the data address set exists in the first storage device.

  • Publication number: 20200126770
    Abstract: A decrease of an etching rate of a substrate can be suppressed, and energy of ions irradiated to an inner wall of a chamber main body can be reduced. A plasma processing apparatus includes a DC power supply configured to generate a negative DC voltage to be applied to a lower electrode of a stage. In a plasma processing performed by using the plasma processing apparatus, a radio frequency power is supplied to generate plasma by exciting a gas within a chamber. Further, the negative DC voltage from the DC power supply is periodically applied to the lower electrode to attract ions in the plasma onto the substrate placed on the stage. A ratio occupied, within each of cycles, by a period during which the DC voltage is applied to the lower electrode is set to be equal to or less than 40%.

  • Publication number: 20200103478
    Abstract: Attenuation of microwaves is reduced or prevented when vacuum windows are provided in microwave waveguides of a DNP-NMR probe. A DNP-NMR probe has an inner container and an outer container. The inner container has therein a sample tube containing a sample to which radicals are added. The outer container keeps a space between the outer container and the inner container in the outer container in a vacuum state. The outer container has an outer container waveguide that has a vacuum window at an inner end portion and guides microwaves. The inner container has a vacuum window facing the vacuum window of the outer container waveguide through vacuum, and guides microwaves transmitted from the outer container waveguide to the sample. The window-to-window distance between the vacuum window of the outer container and the vacuum window of the inner container is adjusted by means of adjustment bolts.
