  • Publication number: 20210074585
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a stealth dicing method and apparatus. With the method, the focusing element focuses the laser beam on the surface of material to be diced, and the dynamic-equilibrium plasma channel is formed in the material to be diced by means of self-focusing and defocusing effect of plasma generated by ionizing the material to be diced. The modified layer may be formed in the material to be diced throughout the plasma channel, so as to realize stealth dicing.

  • Patent number: 8805952
    Abstract: In a distributed computing system that includes compute nodes that include computer memory, globally accessible memory space is administered by: for each compute node: mapping a memory region of a predefined size beginning at a predefined address; executing one or more memory management operations within the memory region, including, for each memory management operation executed within the memory region: executing the operation collectively by all compute nodes, where the operation includes a specification of one or more parameters and the parameters are the same across all compute nodes; receiving, by each compute node from a deterministic memory management module in response to the memory management operation, a return value, where the return value is the same across all compute nodes; entering, by each compute node after local completion of the memory management operation, a barrier; and when all compute nodes have entered the barrier, resuming execution.
