Publication number: US20210050339A1

Abstract:
A semiconductor device assembly that includes first and second semiconductor devices connected directly to a first side of a substrate and a plurality of interconnects connected to a second side of the substrate. The substrate is configured to enable the first and second semiconductor devices to communicate with each other through the substrate. The substrate may be a silicon substrate that includes complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) circuits. The first semiconductor device may be a processing unit and the second semiconductor device may be a memory device, which may be a high bandwidth memory device. A method of making a semiconductor device assembly includes applying CMOS processing to a silicon substrate, forming back end of line (BEOL) layers on a first side of the substrate, attaching a memory device and a processing unit directly to the BEOL layers, and forming a redistribution layer on the second side of the substrate.

Publication number: US20190354530A1

Abstract:
Disclosed are methods and devices, among which is a system that includes a device that includes one or more pattern-recognition processors in a pattern-recognition cluster, for example. One of the one or more pattern-recognition processors may be initialized to perform as a direct memory access master device able to control the remaining pattern-recognition processors for synchronized processing of a data stream.

Publication number: US20150140742A1

Abstract:
Some embodiments include methods of forming gated devices. An upper region of a semiconductor material is patterned into a plurality of walls that extend primarily along a first direction. The walls are spaced from one another by trenches that extend primarily along the first direction. Steps are formed along bottoms of the trenches. Gatelines are formed on the steps and along lower regions of the walls. After the gatelines are formed, the walls are patterned into spaced-apart pillars that have bottom regions below the gatelines. In some embodiments the gated devices may be transistors or thyristors.
