|20150117094||MEMORY DEVICE AND A METHOD OF OPERATING THE SAME - A semiconductor memory device comprises an array of memory cells arranged in rows and columns, control lines coupled to the rows of memory cells for accessing the memory cells, conductive lines coupled to the rows of memory cells for powering the memory cells, and a control circuit configured to maintain non-selected conductive lines at a first voltage level and boost a selected conductive line to a second voltage level in an access operation, the second voltage level being higher than the first voltage level.||04-30-2015|
|20140094008||CMOS Devices with Schottky Source and Drain Regions - A semiconductor structure includes a semiconductor substrate, and an NMOS device at a surface of the semiconductor substrate, wherein the NMOS device comprises a Schottky source/drain extension region. The semiconductor structure further includes a PMOS device at the surface of the semiconductor substrate, wherein the PMOS device comprises a source/drain extension region comprising only non-metal materials. Schottky source/drain extension regions may be formed for both PMOS and NMOS devices, wherein the Schottky barrier height of the PMOS device is reduced by forming the PMOS device over a semiconductor layer having a low valence band.||04-03-2014|
|20130316289||Electron Beam Data Storage System and Method for High Volume Manufacturing - The present disclosure provides for many different embodiments of a charged particle beam data storage system and method. In an example, a method includes dividing a design layout into a plurality of units; creating a lookup table that maps each of the plurality of units to its position within the design layout and a data set, wherein the lookup table associates any repeating units in the plurality of units to a same data set; and exposing an energy sensitive layer to a charged particle beam based on the lookup table.||11-28-2013|
|20130137222||Method for Stacking Semiconductor Dies - A system and method for stacking semiconductor dies is disclosed. A preferred embodiment comprises forming through-silicon vias through the wafer, protecting a rim edge of the wafer, and then removing the unprotected portions so that the rim edge has a greater thickness than the thinned wafer. This thickness helps the fragile wafer survive further transport and process steps. The rim edge is then preferably removed during singulation of the individual dies from the wafer.||05-30-2013|
|20110210404||Epitaxy Profile Engineering for FinFETs - A method of forming an integrated circuit structure includes providing a wafer including a substrate and a semiconductor fin at a major surface of the substrate, and performing a deposition step to epitaxially grow an epitaxy layer on a top surface and sidewalls of the semiconductor fin, wherein the epitaxy layer includes a semiconductor material. An etch step is then performed to remove a portion of the epitaxy layer, with a remaining portion of the epitaxy layer remaining on the top surface and the sidewalls of the semiconductor fin.||09-01-2011|
