  • Patent number: 10388512
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a semiconductor device includes forming a film on a substrate by performing a cycle a predetermined number of times. The cycle includes non-simultaneously performing (a) forming a first layer by supplying a precursor to the substrate from a first nozzle and (b) forming a second layer by supplying a reactant to the substrate from a second nozzle different from the first nozzle to thereby modify the first layer. The act (a) includes sequentially performing (a-1) supplying an inert gas from the second nozzle at a first flow rate smaller than a flow rate of the precursor in a state in which the precursor is supplied from the first nozzle and (a-2) supplying an inert gas from the second nozzle at a second flow rate larger than the flow rate of the precursor in a state in which the precursor is supplied from the first nozzle.

  • Patent number: 7935018
    Abstract: An automatic transmission is provided with three planetary gear units and five friction elements that establish at least six forward speeds and one reverse speed by engaging different combinations of three out of five friction elements simultaneously. In the automatic transmission, an output shaft is always connected to a first ring gear of the first planetary gear unit. A second ring gear of the second planetary gear unit is always fixed. A first carrier of the first planetary gear unit and a third ring gear of the third planetary gear unit are connected together to form a first rotating member. A second sun gear of the second planetary gear unit and a third carrier of the third planetary gear unit are connected together to form a second rotating member.
