Travis A Bogard: Instant messaging via telephone interfaces. Tellme Networks, Jeanette S Harms, Bever Hoffman & Harms, June 29, 2004: US06757365 (426 worldwide citation)

A method and apparatus for enabling users of a phone based speech activated system such as a voice portal to communicate with users of an Internet based instant messenger (IM) service is described. Phone based users are able to send and receive IMs. Incoming messages can cause an asynchronous notifi ...

Thomas P Glenn, Steven Webster, Vincent DiCaprio: Chip size semiconductor packages with stacked dies. Amkor Technology, James E Parsons, Bever Hoffman & Harms, June 10, 2003: US06577013 (301 worldwide citation)

Chip-size semiconductor packages (“CSPs”) containing multiple stacked dies are disclosed. The dies are mounted on one another in a stack such that corresponding ones of the vias in the respective dies are coaxially aligned. An electrically conductive wire or pin is in each set of aligned vias and so ...

Vincent DiCaprio, Kenneth Kaskoun: Semiconductor memory cards and method of making same. Amkor Technology, James E Parsons, Bever Hoffman & Harms, September 23, 2003: US06624005 (221 worldwide citation)

Alternative methods for making memory cards for computers and such eliminate a need for a separate external housing and a separate chip encapsulation step and enable more memory to be packaged in a same-sized card. One of said methods includes providing a substrate having opposite first and second s ...

Michael Sanie, Dipankar Pramanik, Susan Jennifer Lippincott: Mask cost driven logic optimization and synthesis. Synopsys, Bever Hoffman & Harms, Jeanette S Harms, August 16, 2005: US06931617 (195 worldwide citation)

The cost of making a mask set cost has been dramatically increasing due to demand for very small device sizes as well as higher chip complexity. Thus, users would like to minimize the total mask costs. Current logic synthesis tools can create mask designs based on IC characteristics, e.g. speed, are ...
