    Abstract: Multiple tier structures are stacked over a substrate. Each tier structure includes an alternating stack of insulating layers and sacrificial material layers and a retro-stepped dielectric material portion overlying the alternating stack. Multiple types of openings are formed concurrently during formation of each tier structure. Openings concurrently formed through each tier structure can include at least two types of openings that may be selected from through-tier memory openings, through-tier support openings, and through-tier staircase-region openings. Each through-tier opening is filled with a respective through-tier sacrificial opening fill structure. Stacks of through-tier sacrificial opening fill structures can be removed in stages to form various device components, which include memory stack structures, support pillar structures, and staircase-region contact via structures.

  • Patent number: 10381443
    Abstract: A etch stop semiconductor rail is formed within a source semiconductor layer. A laterally alternating stack of dielectric rails and sacrificial semiconductor rails is formed over the source semiconductor layer and the etch stop semiconductor rail. After formation of a vertically alternating stack of insulating layers and spacer material layers, memory stack structures are formed through the vertically alternating stack and through interfaces between the sacrificial semiconductor rails and the dielectric rails. A backside trench is formed through the vertically alternating stack employing the etch stop semiconductor rail as an etch stop structure. Source strap rails providing lateral electrical contact to semiconductor channels of the memory stack structures are formed by replacement of sacrificial semiconductor rails with source strap rails.

  • Patent number: 10324694
    Abstract: Mechanisms are provided for arranging binary code to reduce instruction cache conflict misses. These mechanisms generate a call graph of a portion of code. Nodes and edges in the call graph are weighted to generate a weighted call graph. The weighted call graph is then partitioned according to the weights, affinities between nodes of the call graph, and the size of cache lines in an instruction cache of the data processing system, so that binary code associated with one or more subsets of nodes in the call graph are combined into individual cache lines based on the partitioning. The binary code corresponding to the partitioned call graph is then output for execution in a computing device.

  • Patent number: 10327253
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide a data sending and receiving method and device. The method includes: receiving a threshold; if a data volume of a packet to be sent is less than the threshold, sending the packet in a first data transmission manner; and if a data volume of the packet is greater than or equal to the threshold, sending the packet in a second data transmission manner. By adopting the technical solution of the present invention, a resource waste caused by transmitting small data in a data transmission manner used for transmitting a large packet in the prior art can be reduced, transmission efficiency of small data can be improved, and a transmission delay can be reduced.
