  • Patent number: 8310195
    Abstract: Methods and systems for, in one embodiment, accelerating a stage through a clearance height in a first direction and decelerating the stage in the first direction while accelerating in a second direction are shown. The stage is moved in a third direction and a determination is made whether the stage movement in the second direction is below a threshold value before continuing to move the stage further in the third direction. The first direction is perpendicular to the second direction and is parallel and opposite to the third direction.

  • Publication number: 20120066047
    Abstract: Users may save coupon offers in association with account identifiers tied to user accounts, such as identifiers for customer loyalty cards, phones, or personal computing devices. Users may present the account identifiers, or physical items associated with the account identifier, while completing transactions. Retailers may utilize the account identifiers to determine which coupon offers have been saved in association with the corresponding user accounts. The saved coupon offers may then be applied against the transactions. Coupon offers saved in this manner may be counted as distributed for the purposes of producing a distribution count for reports or for applying distribution limits. For example, a user's request to print a coupon for a coupon offer may be denied if the coupon offer is saved in association with an account identifier associated with the user.

  • Publication number: 20080150559
    Abstract: A method of moving a substrate to a probe card. The method comprises moving a probe card and a substrate vertically closer to one another employing dynamically changing velocities during the moving. More than two different velocities are used during the moving. The velocities are at zero only at an initial location and a final location. The moving is such that the probe card and the substrate contact each other with a soft impact. The velocities for the moving begin with a high velocity and reduce to a lower velocity so that the contact between the probe card and the substrate us a microtouch impact.
