  • Patent number: 11900586
    Abstract: A hot spot defect detecting method and a hot spot defect detecting system are provided. In the method, hot spots are extracted from a design of a semiconductor product to define a hot spot map comprising hot spot groups, wherein local patterns in a same context of the design yielding a same image content are defined as a same hot spot group. During runtime, defect images obtained by an inspection tool performing hot scans on a wafer manufactured with the design are acquired and the hot spot map is aligned to each defect image to locate the hot spot groups. The hot spot defects in each defect image are detected by dynamically mapping the hot spot groups located in each defect image to a plurality of threshold regions and respectively performing automatic thresholding on pixel values of the hot spots of each hot spot group in the corresponding threshold region.

  • Patent number: 11734156
    Abstract: Machine-learned prediction of a blame frame of a crash stack. Specifically, a crash stack associated with a crash is parsed into a sequence of frames. The blame frame of the crash stack is estimated by, for each of a plurality of the sequence of frames, identifying a plurality of features of the corresponding frame, feeding the plurality of features to a neural network, and using the output of the neural network to make a prediction on whether the corresponding frame is a blame frame of the crash. If this is done during training time, the predicted blame frame can be compared against the actual blame frame, resulting in an adjustment of the neural network. Through appropriate featurization of the frames, and by use of the neural network, the prediction can be made cross-application and considering the context of the frame within the crash stack.

A phased deployment of a software application update generally involves initially deploying the software update to a subset of compute instances running the software application within a computing environment, using a testing application to verify whether the updated software application is operating as expected, and then deploying the update to the remaining compute instance of the computing environment once the tests are passed. A testing system and framework described herein enables a code deployment service to determine when complete or sufficient test coverage is achieved for software updates deployed in a computing environment supporting a distributed software application.

  • Patent number: 11150536
    Abstract: Techniques for generating an arbitrary target electromagnetic signal with a nonlinear material, include determining a time varying target amplitude and target phase and an order n of a nonlinear material. For each time, a first set of nth roots of the target amplitude and a second set of nth roots of the target phase are determined. An input amplitude based on one value from the first set and an input phase based on one value from the second set is determined at each time. A difference between temporally successive values of phase is minimized. An electromagnetic signal is modulated to impose the input amplitude and phase to produce a modulated electromagnetic input signal that is introduced into the nonlinear material to produce a target electromagnetic signal.

  • Patent number: 11030642
    Abstract: Whether video advertisements are being delivered to a human user or a machine is determined passively, i.e., without having the user to perform any explicit actions. Based on the time and frequency of ad requests generated from a user device, a daily schedule is estimated for the user. The estimated daily schedule is compared with a daily schedule pattern to determine whether the user is a human user or not.

  • Patent number: 10993630
    Abstract: A method of determining respiratory rate from a photoplethysmograph signal includes filtering the photoplethysmograph signal to create a filtered photoplethysmograph signal. The method also includes detecting peaks and valleys in the filtered photoplethysmograph signal to extract predetermined features from the filtered photoplethysmograph signal. The method also includes obtaining variation waveforms from the predetermined features. The method also includes removing outliers from each of variation waveforms. The method also includes interpolating for the outliers removed from each of the variation waveforms to acquire a frequency estimation of each of the variation waveforms. The method also includes determining a respiratory rate based on the frequency estimation of each of the variation waveforms. The method also includes determining a weighted average of the respiratory rate the variation waveforms to determine an estimated respiratory rate.

  • Patent number: 10872406
    Abstract: A hot spot defect detecting method and a hot spot defect detecting system are provided. In the method, hot spots are extracted from a design of a semiconductor product to define a hot spot map comprising hot spot groups, wherein local patterns in a same context of the design yielding a same image content are defined as a same hot spot group. During runtime, defect images obtained by an inspection tool performing hot scans on a wafer manufactured with the design are acquired and the hot spot map is aligned to each defect image to locate the hot spot groups. The hot spot defects in each defect image are detected by dynamically mapping the hot spot groups located in each defect image to a plurality of threshold regions and respectively performing automatic thresholding on pixel values of the hot spots of each hot spot group in the corresponding threshold region.

  • Patent number: 10846070
    Abstract: Behavioral intelligence can be used with cloud native computing to enhance software deployment for various infrastructures by analyzing and deploying software functions according to the various infrastructures. Because different providers can have their own systems and controls for managing their infrastructures, it is costly to deploy software functions that are coupled together. However, if the software functions are disaggregated and translated according to the systems and controls relative to the various infrastructures, then the software functions can be failed and scaled independently of one another, thereby generating efficiencies.
