  • Publication number: 20220145496
    Abstract: A process produces a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) fiber with low shrinkage, in particular at a high spinning speed. The resulting fiber can be used for fabric, especially for garments and shoes. The process combines the high-speed spinning process with the heat-setting process. This allows the process to produce a TPU fiber in high productivity, which could greatly decrease the cost. Moreover, the obtained TPU fiber has very low shrinkage of <10%, which makes it well suitable as the main raw material in fabrics.

  • Publication number: 20220109045
    Abstract: A method of isolating sections of the channel layer in a SOI workpiece is disclosed. Rather than etching material to create trenches, which are then filled with a dielectric material, ions are implanted into portions of the channel layer to transform these implanted regions from silicon or silicon germanium into an electrically insulating material. These ions may comprise at least one isolating species, such as oxygen, nitrogen, carbon or boron. This eliminates various processes from the fabrication sequence, including an etching process and a deposition process. Advantageously, this approach also results in greater axial strain in the channel layer, since the channel layer is continuous across the workpiece.

  • Publication number: 20220102500
    Abstract: A P-type field effect transistor (PFET) device and a method for fabricating a PFET device using fully depleted silicon on insulator (FDSOI) technology is disclosed. The method includes introducing germanium into the channel layer using ion implantation. This germanium implant increases the axial stress in the channel layer, improving device performance. This implant may be performed at low temperatures to minimize damage to the crystalline structure. Further, rather than using a long duration, high temperature anneal process, the germanium implanted in the channel layer may be annealed using a laser anneal or a rapid temperature anneal. The implanted regions are re-crystallized using the channel layer that is beneath the gate as the seed layer. In some embodiments, an additional oxide spacer is used to further separate the raised source and drain regions from the gate.

  • Patent number: 11258721
    Abstract: Described are methods, systems and devices for eliminating redundant retransmissions in radio link layer (RLC) acknowledged mode (AM) data transmissions and receptions. In some embodiments, when an RLC service data unit (SDU) has not been completely received, the value of a state variable may be selectively set based on whether or not a contiguous set of byte segments of the RLC SDU have been received. This prevents the retransmission of byte segments that are either currently being transmitted or have not yet been transmitted. In other embodiments, the selective setting of the state variable may be triggered by the expiration of a reassembly timer. The described implementations may improve the data transmission of RLC SDUs in high data rate scenarios, which may be ubiquitous in 5G implementations.
