  • Publication number: 20240045345
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to a linear motor system and a digital lithography system having the linear motor system that compensates for potential parasitic forces applied to at least one stage of the digital lithography system during operation. The digital lithography system includes one or more motor coils disposed between an upper plate and a lower plate of a yoke of at least one track. The motor coils are each coupled to a mount which is coupled to a stage. Each mount includes one or more active compensators. During a digital lithography operation, the active compensators are in communication with the controller, The active compensators provides a force in the opposite direction of the parasitic forces, such as vibrations and other disturbances. The compensation of the parasitic forces increases the quality of the patterns printed by the digital lithography system.

  • Publication number: 20230288822
    Abstract: Actual physical locations of dies on a substrate package may be identified without using a full metrology scan of the substrate. Instead, one or more cameras may be used to efficiently locate the approximate location of any of the alignment features based on their expected positioning in the design file for the packages are substrate. The cameras may then be moved to locations where alignment features should be, and images may be captured to determine the actual location of the alignment feature. These actual locations of the alignment features may then be used to identify coordinates for the dies, as well as rotations and/or varying heights of the dies on the packages. A difference between the expected location from the design file and the actual physical location may be used to adjust instructions for the digital lithography system to compensate for the misalignment of the dies.

  • Patent number: 11701037
    Abstract: A method for detecting in-vivo properties of a biosensor. In the inventive method, a sensitivity-to-admittance relation is provided and a raw current in the biosensor is measured. An in-vivo current response is also measured at first and second operating points. A time constant ? is determined by the electrical capacitance C of the working electrode and the electrical resistance RM of the membrane by ?=RM·C. The first and second operating points are selected below and above ?, respectively. An analyte value in a sample of a body fluid is determined by using the raw current and compensating sensitivity drift in the biosensor, which in turn is compensated by using the measured value for the raw current and a corrected value for the sensitivity. The failsafe operation of the biosensor is monitored by using the in-vivo current response measured at the first and second operating points.

  • Publication number: 20230158886
    Abstract: A method and an operator control device operate an infotainment system. The operator control device has a control unit, an audio device, an actuating element, and a touch-sensitive display device, which is mounted so as to be movable and is designed to display at least one graphical control element. The touch-sensitive display device moves during an actuating action and thus activates the actuating element. The control unit determines an actuation position of the actuating action on the touch-sensitive display device when the actuating element is activated and compares said actuation position with a display position of the at least one graphical control element. The audio device is actuated to output an audible signal when the actuation position matches the display position.
