  • Publication number: 20200035805
    Abstract: In a method for manufacturing a semiconductor device, a gate structure is formed over a channel layer and an isolation insulating layer. A first sidewall spacer layer is formed on a side surface of the gate structure. A sacrificial layer is formed so that an upper portion of the gate structure with the first sidewall spacer layer is exposed from the sacrificial layer and a bottom portion of the gate structure with the first sidewall spacer layer is embedded in the first sacrificial layer. A space is formed between the bottom portion of the gate structure and the sacrificial layer by removing at least part of the first sidewall spacer layer. After the first sidewall spacer layer is removed, an air gap is formed between the bottom portion of the gate structure and the sacrificial layer by forming a second sidewall spacer layer over the gate structure.

  • Publication number: 20190385816
    Abstract: An embodiment is an apparatus, such as a plasma chamber. The apparatus includes chamber walls and a chamber window defining an enclosed space. A chamber window is disposed between a plasma antenna and a substrate support. A gas delivery source is mechanically coupled to the chamber window. The gas delivery source comprises a gas injector having a passageway, a window at a first end of the passageway, and a nozzle at a second end of the passageway. The nozzle of the gas delivery source is disposed in the enclosed space. A fastening device is mechanically coupled to the gas delivery source. The fastening device is adjustable to adjust a sealing force against the gas injector.

  • Publication number: 20190024007
    Abstract: It has been found that the balance between friction reduction in the engine crankcase and the maintenance of sufficient friction in the clutch assembly of a 4T motorcycle, where the engine crankcase and the clutch assembly are lubricating by the same lubricating oil composition from a common sump, can be achieved by use of a lubricating oil composition comprising a combination of molybdenum containing additive and ashless organic friction modifier.

  • Patent number: 8736618
    Abstract: Systems and methods include an electronic device having multiple GPUs and a GPU power control process that controls switching between a first GPU and a second GPU, such as a high performance GPU. The electronic device may be coupled to an external display by a passive adapter or an active adapter. The GPU power control process may determine if the second GPU is active and switch to the second GPU upon connection of the external display through either the passive adapter or the active adapter. Upon connection of an active adapter, the GPU power control process may use hot plug functionality to determine connection of the external display to the active adapter and provide appropriate switching in response thereto.
