  • Publication number: 20190163909
    Abstract: A semiconductor chip device include device state fuses that may be used to configure various device states and corresponding security levels for the semiconductor chip as it transitions from wafer manufacturing to provisioned device. The device states and security levels prevent the semiconductor chip from being accessed and exploited, for example, during manufacturing testing. A secure boot flow process for a semiconductor chip over its lifecycle is also disclosed. The secure boot flow may start at the wafer manufacturing stage and continue on through the insertion of keys and firmware.

The laminate may further include a second polymer layer having a thickness joined to the fiber layer and/or a layer of hot melt adhesive applied to the poly ester fibers. Also presented is a composite material having a polyester film, a layer of polyester fibers bonded to the second polymer layer; a second polymer layer joined to the polyester film; and a glass reinforced polymer layer formed on the laminated facer, where the polymer of the as reinforced polymer layer is commingled with the nonwoven of the laminated facer.

  • Patent number: 10279570
    Abstract: A composite board with a multilayer laminated facer is presented having a nonwoven, a first polymer layer, and a second polymer layer. The laminate may be printed on the nonwoven, on the upper surface of the first polymer layer or inverted printed on the backside of an applied film. A number of configurations for the polymer layers are disclosed. The laminate may include exposed fibers on the lower surface or the nonwoven may be saturated. A removable peel-ply may be included. By controlling the placement and thickness of the polymer layers it is possible to tailor additive in the polymers such as colorants, opacifiers, UV stabilizers, and fire retardants to improve quality and reduce costs. In an alternate embodiment of the present invention, a first polymer layer is applied to the topside of the nonwoven and the second polymer is laminated to the first polymer layer as a preformed film. The laminated facer is thermally or adhesively bonded to the composite board.

  • Patent number: 10254110
    Abstract: An optical metrology device determines physical characteristics of at least one via in a sample, such as a through-silicon vias (TSV), using signal strength data for modeling of the bottom critical dimension (BCD) and/or for refinement of the data used to determine a physical characteristic of the via, such as BCD and/or depth. The metrology device obtains interferometric data and generates height and signal strength data, from which statistical properties may be obtained. The height and signal strength data for the via is refined by removing noise using the statistical property, and the BCD for the via may be determined using the refined height and signal strength data. In one implementation, a signal strength via map for a via is generated using signal strength data and is fit to a model to determine the BCD for the via.

  • Publication number: 20180322463
    Abstract: Techniques for enhancing usability and electronic resource efficiency using job relevance are disclosed herein. In some embodiments, a list of a predetermined number of top job openings for a member of the social networking system is generated. The list is communicated to a device of the user for presentation in a user interface on the device. The user interface allows the member to browse through and provide an indication of a lack of relevancy of each of the list of the predetermined number of top job openings to the member and an indication of a reason for the lack of relevancy. Based on the user providing the indication of the lack of relevancy and the reason, a modified relevancy assessment of each of the plurality of job openings is generated. The list of the predetermined number of top job openings for the member is regenerated and communicated to the device.

  • Publication number: 20180220230
    Abstract: A single prong, multiple signal conducting plug and plug detection circuitry is provided. The plug may be electrically coupled to a stereo headset including a microphone. The plug may include four signal conducting regions arranged in a predetermined order along the length of the prong. Detection circuitry may be operative to determine whether a microphone type of plug (e.g., a four region plug including a microphone region and two audio regions, or a three region plug including microphone region and only one audio region) or a non-microphone type of plug (e.g., stereo plug) is inserted into the jack of an electronic device (e.g., mobile phone). Detection circuitry may also detect user activated functions performed in response to user activation of one or more switches included with the headset. For example, the headset may include a single switch for performing a function with respect to a microphone (e.g., end-call function).
