  • Publication number: 20200149185
    Abstract: The present application provides a reflective screen of a monocrystal growth furnace and the monocrystal growth furnace. The reflective screen comprises an inner cylinder, an outer cylinder, a thermal insulating material sandwiched between the inner and the outer cylinders, and a thermal insulating pad disposed at the joint of the inner and the outer cylinders. The reflective screen and the monocrystal growth furnace are able to decrease the thermal transmittance from the outer cylinder to the inner cylinder, increase the vertical temperature gradient of the ingot, and prevent or decrease the silicon oxides evaporated from the molten silicon to condensate on the outer cylinder of the reflective screen. Thereby, polycrystalline caused by the oxides falling into the molten silicon can be reduced. Moreover, the thermal power required during the growth of monocrystalline silicon can be reduced because of the reduction of unnecessary thermal transmittance.

  • Publication number: 20200105709
    Abstract: A packaged semiconductor device includes a substrate having input/output (I/O) pads, a semiconductor die attached to the substrate and electrically connected to the substrate with bond wires. A bond-wire reinforcement structure is formed over the bond wires before the assembly is covered with a molding compound. The bond-wire reinforcement structure prevents wire sweep during molding and protects the wires from shorting with other wires. In one embodiment, the bond-wire reinforcement structure is formed with a fiberglass and liquid epoxy mixture.

  • Publication number: 20170089003
    Abstract: The invention relates to a steaming device component (4, 7, 25) comprising a passageway (16, 23, 33) having an inner surface (17, 24, 34) along which steam may flow. At least a section of the inner surface (17, 24, 34) is formed by a foam material (19, 35) having a low thermal conductivity such that the foam material (19, 35) reduces the rate of condensation on the inner surface (17, 24, 34). Since the foam material requires less heat energy to attain the same temperature as the steam, the foam material heats up quickly reducing the time in which condensation can take place on the inner surface of the steam passageway.

  • Patent number: 8141279
    Abstract: A steam ironing device (10) provides an ionized steam output using an ionizing arrangement (30). The ionization process, in particular the high energy electric discharge used for ionization, breaks down steam particles into finer particles. As a result, a greater proportion of the steam particles generated can penetrate into the fabric of the garment being ironed, to improve fabric treatment and fabric moistening. Air ionization can also be used. The ionization process is improved by limiting the temperature of the steam.
