Shih Wei Chou, Ming Hsing Tsai, Ming Wei Lin: Method to improve planarity of electroplated copper. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, Haynes and Boone, June 20, 2006: US07064068 (184 worldwide citation)

Narrow trenches in a substrate tend to fill more rapidly than wide trenches This results in a non-planar surface once all trenches have been filled. The present invention solves this problem by performing the electro-deposition in two steps. The plating bath used during the first step, is optimized ...

Wei Lin: Service interface for QoS-driven HPNA networks. AT&T, February 20, 2007: US07180855 (173 worldwide citation)

An out-of-band signaling model media control (MC) terminal for an HPNA network includes a QoS management entity (QME) and an admission control entity (ACE) and provides end-to-end QoS by passing the QoS requirements from higher layer to the lower layers of the HPNA network. The QME receives an end-t ...
