Self-aligned conductive plugs in a semiconductor device

You’ve invested time, talent, and energy into making a dent in the universe with your invention and ideas. Now it’s time to make sure it’s protected with a PowerPatent Utility, Provisional or Design Patent Application

The Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. patent solves the following problem:

Our analysis of this patent is as follows:

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.’s patent US 6768204 B1 deals with Self-aligned conductive plugs in a semiconductor device.
The present invention provides for improved alignment with an opening in a lower dielectric layer with an opening in a surface dielectric layer. This greater flexibility is useful as it improves the functionality of the device with dual damascene arrangement material, as normal right not thought of consuming devices or non-functional. Furthermore, the present invention is useful as it allows for a designer, such as a microprocessor designer, to rely on more predictable conductive nature of the contact between a first conductive region and a second conductive region.

The Robert J. Might patent solves the following problem:

This invention relates to a method and apparatus for gathering and evaluating the qualitative inputs or feedback, including the views and opinions from employees and customers.

Our analysis of this patent is as follows:

Robert J. Might’s patent US 6766319 B1 deals with Method and apparatus for gathering and evaluating information.
An ongoing information gathering and evaluation system used was five with database and software for gathering user input (respondent software), to evaluate the input (evaluator software), and for service system (administrative software). The first database contains the categories of users in an organization. The second database stores information about each user. The third database includes all topics and issues of interest and questions for each combination of topics, issues, and accused categories. Answers to question statements best collected using a 7 point Likert scale. The fourth database is the repository for the response from users and relevant statistics based on the answers. The fifth database includes data allowance and the rules that determine how the systems and processes implemented for a particular organization.

The Solomon Zaromb patent solves the following problem:

This invention relates to apparatus and methods for monitoring the concentration of harmful airborne substances, especially in the lead in order to fire, and around the lead-smelting or lead-fabricating facilities, lead-acid battery or ceramic pots and plants, radiator repair, and other soldering shop, address contaminated chipping lead paint, and other places with high respirable levels may pose a health hazard man.

Our analysis of this patent is as follows:

Solomon Zaromb’s patent US 6762060 B1 deals with Apparatus and methods for monitoring the concentrations of hazardous airborne substances, especially lead.
Air sample at a rate in excess of 100 L / min, preferably 200-300 L / min, to collect a substantial portion, ie, at least 20%, preferably 60 -100%, the airborne particulates. A wealth of interest (analyte), like lead, is rapidly solubilized from the collected particulates into a sample liquid extraction, and the concentration of the analyte in the sample extraction determined. The high-rate air sampling and particulate collection will be implemented with a high-throughput filter cartridge or with a recently developed portable high-throughput liquid-absorption air sampler. Rapid Solubilization lead to achieve a liquid extractant containing 0.1-1 M acetic acid or acetate, preferably to a pH of 5 or less and preferably to include 1-10% hydrogen peroxide . Rapid determination of lead content in liquid extraction could be effected by a colorimetric or a electroanalytical analyzer.
