  • Patent number: 11935778
    Abstract: A holding mechanism includes a Bernoulli pad that holds a plate-shaped body, a hand on which the Bernoulli pad is disposed, a sensor that is disposed on the hand and detects that the plate-shaped body is held under suction by the Bernoulli pad, a lateral movement restriction section disposed on the hand, a tube that connects an air source supplying air to the Bernoulli pad and the Bernoulli pad, an adjustment valve that is disposed in the tube and adjusts a flow rate of air supplied to the Bernoulli pad, and a control section that controls operation of the adjustment valve. The control section gradually increases the flow rate of the air supplied from the adjustment valve to the Bernoulli pad and, when it is detected by the sensor that the plate-shaped body has been held under suction by the Bernoulli pad, fixes the flow rate of the air.

  • Publication number: 20240078173
    Abstract: A training operation may be performed by a memory controller to provide a system clock signal and a data clock signal having a desired temporal (e.g., phase) relationship to one another. The system clock and data clock signals may be provided to a memory. In some examples, the memory controller may provide a command to the memory to put the memory in a training mode. Once in the training mode, the memory controller may provide a write command and toggle the data clock signal a number of times. If the memory provides one output, the memory controller may adjust the relationship between the data clock and system clock signals. If the memory provides another output, the memory controller may maintain the relationship between the data clock and system clock signals and exit the training mode.
