  • Publication number: 20210318175
    Abstract: The invention provides a temperature sensing device of an integrated circuit. The integrated circuit includes a plurality of stacked metal wire layers, and the temperature sensing device includes a first metal sheet, a first via and a second via. The first metal sheet is disposed between the first metal wire layer and the second metal wire layer of the metal wire layers. The first via and the second via are used to connect the first metal sheet and the first metal wire layer, wherein a temperature sensing signal enters the first metal sheet through the first via and leaves the first metal sheet through the second via to measure the temperature of the integrated circuit.

  • Patent number: 9684383
    Abstract: An electronic apparatus and a method for detecting status of keys thereof are provided. The electronic apparatus comprises a key module, a key control circuit, a conversion circuit with calibration mechanism and a processor. The key control circuit detects whether any of keys in the key module is pressed. If the detection result is affirmative, the press status of each of the keys is scanned by the key control circuit to obtain a coarse scan result. The conversion circuit with calibration mechanism is configured to perform the other system function of the electronic apparatus. When the processor determines that at least one of the keys is not pressed according the coarse scan result, the conversion circuit with calibration mechanism is switched to assist a re-scan operation of the press status of the at least one of the keys.
