  • Publication number: 20200152676
    Abstract: A method of making a semiconductor device includes etching a substrate to define a trench in a substrate, wherein the trench is adjacent to an active region in the substrate, and etching the substrate includes patterning a mask. The method further includes partially removing the mask to expose a first portion of the active region, wherein the first portion extends a first distance from the trench. The method further includes depositing a dielectric material to fill the trench and cover the first portion of the active region. The method further includes removing the mask, wherein the removing of the mask includes maintaining the dielectric material covering the first portion of the active region. The method further includes forming a gate structure over the active region and over the dielectric material.

  • Publication number: 20200132916
    Abstract: An electronic device may include display layers such as liquid crystal display layers and a backlight unit that provides illumination for the display layers. The backlight unit may include light-emitting diodes that emit light into the edge of a light guide film. To minimize the inactive area of the display, the light-emitting diodes may be tightly spaced to approximate a line light source instead of point light sources. Color and/or luminance compensation layers may be incorporated at various locations within the backlight structures to ensure that the backlight provided to the display layers is homogenous. A thin-film transistor layer of the display may be coupled to a printed circuit board by a flexible printed circuit. The flexible printed circuit may have additional solder mask layers to improve robustness, may include encapsulation, and may have traces with a varying pitch.

  • Publication number: 20200121197
    Abstract: A device for collecting cardiovascular data relating to an individual user, comprising a control unit assembly with an electronic controller and a pneumatic unit, an arm band having an inflatable bladder and configured to surround the left arm of the individual, wherein the pneumatic unit has a pump and a pressure sensor, and is configured to inflate and deflate the inflatable bladder, so that the electronic controller can determine the arterial pressure of the user, the device further comprising an acoustic sensor being coupled to the external wall of the arm band and having a sensitive side such that in use configuration, the sensitive side is adjacent to the chest of the user, whereby at least a cardiovascular timing characteristic can be inferred from signals from the acoustic sensor and the pressure sensor. The device may also comprise a set of contact electrodes to provide additionally ECG functionality.
