  • Patent number: 9925754
    Abstract: A manufacturing method of a flexible device comprises: an adjustment step of adjusting adhesive characteristics of an adhesive layer formed over a supporting substrate; a temporary bonding step of temporarily bonding the flexible substrate; an electronic device formation step of forming an electronic device; and a separation step of separating the flexible substrate. In the adjustment step, the adhesive characteristics of the adhesive layer are adjusted to satisfy a relationship of PB<PA, where PA denotes a peel strength of the adhesive layer after the electronic device formation step, in a case where the adhesive layer undergoes the electronic device formation step without undergoing the adjustment step, and PB denotes a peel strength of the adhesive layer after the electronic device formation step, in a case where the adhesive layer undergoes the electronic device formation step after undergoing the adjustment step.

  • Patent number: 9914290
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a peeling bar, apparatus, and method for peeling a polarizing film from a panel. This invention can minimize friction between the peeling bar and the polarizing film since the peeled polarizing film is in contact with a front part of the peeling bar. Also, in order to equalize tension applied to the polarizing film in a peeling process, this invention makes both ends of the polarizing film closely adhere to the peeling bar. According to this invention, fracture of the polarizing film is prevented, and thereby the polarizing film can be stably peeled from the panel without fracture.

  • Patent number: 9889533
    Abstract: The invention provides a cloth taking-up device including: a platform, on which glue/cloth to be taken-up are disposed; and a clamp part movable with respect to the platform, which can clamp a roller and roll the glue/cloth to be taken-up successively onto the roller. An outside surface of the platform has an included angle of 0°-180° with respect to the horizontal plane, on which the glue/cloth to be taken-up are disposed, and the clamp part can keep the roller in parallel with the outside surface. The cloth taking-up device can avoid uneven pressure applied to the glue/cloth to be taken-up in the down-press manner, improving uniformity of taken-up glue/cloth. Meanwhile, the foreign matters on the glue/cloth to be taken-up can easily fall off, and the foreign matters on the rollers cannot drop onto the glue/cloth to be taken-up with the rotation, thereby ensuring glue/cloth taking-up quality.

  • Patent number: 9887847
    Abstract: A conductor on glass security layer may be located within a printed circuit board (PCB) of a crypto adapter card or within a daughter card upon the crypto adapter card. The conductor on glass security layer includes a glass dielectric layer that remains intact in the absence of point force loading and shatters when a point load punctures or otherwise contacts the glass dielectric layer. The conductor on glass security layer also includes a conductive security trace upon the glass dielectric layer. A physical access attempt shatters a majority of the glass dielectric layer, which in turn fractures the security trace. A monitoring circuit that monitors the resistance of the conductive security trace detects the resultant open circuit or change in security trace resistance and initiates a tamper signal that which may be received by one or more computer system devices to respond to the unauthorized attempt of physical access.
