  • Patent number: 10861775
    Abstract: A semiconductor package assembly having a connecting clip disposed on both a first material stack and a second material stack having different thicknesses and disposed on a conducting substrate. This connecting clip has a first portion disposed on to the first material stack and second portion disposed on the second material stack, such that the surfaces of the first portion and second portion opposite the conducting substrate are at the same perpendicular distance from the conducting substrate. For example, in some implementations, when the thickness of the second material stack is smaller than the thickness of the first material stack, the second portion of the connecting clip may include a vertical support disposed on the second material stack to equalize the heights of the surfaces of the first portion and second portion of the connecting clip.

  • Patent number: 9022773
    Abstract: A device and method for manufacturing integrated circuit packaging using a mold plunger with position compensation in a manufacturing setting. In an embodiment, a compensating mold plunger, which may be used during the manufacture of an integrated circuit package, engages a die set on a carrier and within a bushing. This may be done to inject a mold compound on top of the die/carrier. If the bushing that is housing the die/carrier tandem is misaligned with the plunger in any lateral direction, the amount of pressure may be compromised. A compensating mold plunger includes a flexible portion that allows for the head of the plunger to properly engage the die/carrier despite any possible misalignments. Further, different die/carrier combinations may also be used with a compensating mold plunger because the pressure and force applied may be uniform inside a bushing despite the contents of the bushing.

    Abstract: An adjustable food press for making a wide variety of hot and cold sandwiches and other foods that are compressed during preparation. The food press has a dome and a handle assembly, attached to a pressing plate inside the dome, that adjusts the position of the pressing plate to the desired sandwich thickness. Once positioned, the handle assembly is locked in position, holding the pressing plate in place until the sandwich is ready. When the pressing plate is released, the dome is left in place to keep the food warm, or removed and used on the same or a different sandwich style. The food press functions with a variety of flat-surfaced cooking equipment used to prepare hot and cold food. The dome prevents spatter of grease and food particles on surrounding surfaces. The pressing plate is removable for cleaning or for interchanging with a different style of pressing plate.

    Abstract: Self-assembled buckling patterns of thin films on compliant substrates can be used in micro-fabrication. However, most previous work has been limited to planar substrates, and buckling of films on curved substrates has not been widely explored. With the constraining effect from various types of substrate curvature, numerous new types of buckling morphologies can be derived. The morphologies not only enable true three-dimensional (3D) fabrication of microstructures and microdevices, but also can have important implications for the morphogenesis of quite a few natural and biological systems.

  • Patent number: 7972545
    Abstract: A device and a method for manufacturing an end mill in which the amount of grinding of a blank end mill is small. The device for manufacturing an end mill includes: upper and lower punches; a die; a feed box for supplying a powder of material for the end mill; and a cleaner for eliminating the powder from a top surface of the die. The upper and lower punches are movable up and down relative to each other and have a lengthwise molding cavity formed thereon. The die has a penetrating slit sized to be approximated to the width of the upper and lower punches. The penetrating slit allows the up-and-down movements of the upper and lower punches. The feed box supplies the powder into a space formed by the wall of the penetrating slit and the lower punch.

    Abstract: A method for tableting surface treatment of a tableting punch or die includes provisional filming and beam irradiation steps. In the provisional filming step, a tableting surface of a base metal material 1 is subjected to shot peening using different type metal grains 2 made of a different type of metal for adhesion, or the different type metal grains 2 are adhered by a binder whereby forming a different type metal film 3 on the surface. In the beam irradiation step, after the different type metal film 3 is formed, the surface is irradiated with an electron beam 4 or laser beam as energy beam to combine the different type metal film 3 and the base metal material 1.
