  • Patent number: 10319421
    Abstract: A memory macro includes a first set of memory cells, a second set of memory cells and a set of conductive lines. The first set of memory cells is arranged in columns and rows. Each memory cell of the first set of memory cells includes a voltage supply node configured to receive a first voltage of a first supply voltage or a second voltage of a second supply voltage. The second set of memory cells includes a set of retention circuits configured to supply the second voltage of the second supply voltage to the first set of memory cells during a sleep operational mode. The set of conductive lines is coupled to the set of retention circuits and the voltage supply node of each memory cell of the first set of memory cells.

  • Publication number: 20190172501
    Abstract: A device includes a memory array. The memory array includes a first sub-bank, a second sub-bank, a strap cell and a continuous data line. The strap cell is arranged between the first sub-bank and the second sub-bank. The continuous data line includes a first portion coupled to the first sub-bank and a second portion disposed across the second sub-bank. The first portion of the continuous data line and the second portion of the continuous data line are disposed at separate layers above the strap cell.

  • Publication number: 20190155140
    Abstract: A method of fabricating a photomask includes selectively exposing portions of a photomask blank to radiation to change an optical property of the portions of the photomask blank exposed to the radiation, thereby forming a pattern of exposed portions of the photomask blank and unexposed portions of the photomask blank. The pattern corresponds to a pattern of semiconductor device features.

  • Publication number: 20190148110
    Abstract: In a method of manufacturing a photo mask for lithography, circuit pattern data are acquired. A pattern density, which is a total pattern area per predetermined area, is calculated from the circuit pattern data. Dummy pattern data for areas having pattern density less than a threshold density are generated. Mask drawing data is generated from the circuit pattern data and the dummy pattern data. By using an electron beam from an electron beam lithography apparatus, patterns are drawn according to the mask drawing data on a resist layer formed on a mask blank substrate. The drawn resist layer is developed using a developing solution. Dummy patterns included in the dummy pattern data are not printed as a photo mask pattern when the resist layer is exposed with the electron beam and is developed.

  • Publication number: 20190139810
    Abstract: A apparatus includes a susceptor and a non-reactive gas source. The susceptor has through holes and a wafer support surface. Each through hole includes a lift pin and a lift pin head. The lift pin has a vertical degree of motion in the through hole to lift up or place a wafer on the susceptor. The lift pin head has at least one flow channel structure running from its first surface at least partially exposed to a bottom side of the susceptor through its second surface exposed to a top side of the susceptor wherein the lift pin. The non-reactive gas source is configured to flow a gas to a backside of the wafer through the flow channel structure through the bottom side of the susceptor.

  • Publication number: 20130060855
    Abstract: System and computer program products for allowing a renderer in a UPnP network the capability of being able to render general Internet content, which the renderer was not designed to render in the contents original data format and file type. The system queries all devices on the local network, queries specific remote servers over the Internet, and retrieves data feeds from remote sources. The queried and retrieved data that is not in a format and file type that can be rendered by the renderer is loaded into a template and turned into a format and file type acceptable by the renderer. The queried and retrieved data in the proper format and file type is organized in a custom format and made available for rendering to the renderer.

  • Publication number: 20090150570
    Abstract: Systems and computer program products for allowing a renderer in a UPnP network the capability of being able to render general Internet content of static or dynamic nature, which the renderer was not designed to render in the contents original data format and file type. The system queries all devices on the local network, queries specific remote servers over the Internet, and retrieves data feeds from remote sources. The queried and retrieved data that is not in a format and file type that can be rendered by the renderer is loaded into a template and turned into a format and file type acceptable by the renderer. The queried and retrieved data in the proper format and file type is organized in a custom format and made available for rendering to the renderer. The system has the capability of transmitting content or the metadata of the content within the devices on the local network to a hosting service over the Internet.

  • Publication number: 20020049852
    Abstract: A software implementable approach capable of creating, delivering, reassembling, rendering, and storing asynchronous and synchronous multimedia message. This approach integrates video/audio streaming with existing Internet/Intranet e-mail messaging and video/audio conferencing systems. The software provides both one-way asynchronous communication as well as bi-directional synchronous communication. Each stream represents a user access from client on one computer to server on the other computer. The method enables electronic multimedia messaging on video/audio capture-equipped mobile platform with limited pre-installed software capability or memory footprint.
