  • Patent number: 10317958
    Abstract: The embodiments herein describe a computing device (e.g., a storage server) that includes at least one telescoping unit which includes a plurality of removable (or pluggable) hardware components. The computing device includes a chassis which defines a form factor of the computing device. The telescoping unit, when prompted by the user, can extend vertically from a top surface of the computing device. By doing so, the pluggable hardware components are then exposed to the user who can add or replace the components. In one embodiment, the telescoping unit includes telescoping links disposed on opposite sides which are used to guide or urge the telescoping unit vertically from the chassis. Cross links may be coupled between first and second rails where one end of each of the links is coupled to a sliding member in the rail while the other end is fixably attached to the rail.

  • Patent number: 10296554
    Abstract: Optical metrology is used to calibrate the plane-of-incidence (POI) azimuth error by determining and correcting an azimuth angle offset. The azimuth angle offset may be determined by measuring at least a partial Mueller matrix from a calibration grating on a sample held on a stage for a plurality of POI azimuth angles. An axis of symmetry is determined for a curve describing a value of a Mueller matrix element with respect to POI azimuth angle, for each desired wavelength and each desired Mueller matrix element. The axis of symmetry may then be used to determine the azimuth angle offset, e.g., by determining a mean, median or average of all, or a filtered subset, of the axes of symmetry. If desired, an axis of symmetry may be determined for data sets other than Mueller matrix elements, such as Fourier coefficients of measured signals.

  • Patent number: 10262910
    Abstract: Methods and systems for using a time-series of spectra to identify endpoint of an etch process. One method includes accessing a virtual carpet that is formed from a time-series of spectra for the etch process collected during a training operation. And, running a fabrication etch process on a fabrication wafer, such that while the fabrication etch process is performed portions of a carpet defined from a time-series of spectral is generated for the fabrication etch process. Then, comparing the portions of the carpet of the fabrication etch process to the virtual carpet. End pointing is processed for the fabrication etch process when said comparing indicates that a desired metric has been reached for the fabrication wafer. In one example, said portions of the carpet include a current frame of captured spectra and at least one previous frame of captured spectra.

  • Patent number: 9668538
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for coloring an article includes fastening an article to a container which at least partially encloses the article. The article fastens to the container in a fixed position. A portion of the container is inserted into a liquid by an actuator. The liquid enters the container through an open end. An air pocket is created in the container when it is inserted into the liquid. A first portion of the article is contained within the air pocket and a second portion of the article is dipped into the liquid and thereby is colored from a dye in the liquid. The actuator also removes the container and the article from the liquid. The process can be repeated with the article in an inverted position and with another liquid to color another portion of the article a second color.
