||PCT/CN2013/080438||SHENZHEN CHINA STAR OPTOELECTRONICS TECHNOLOGY CO.,LTD.||LEE, Kuancheng|
The present invention provides a transparent conductive layer, a CF substrate having the transparent conductive layer, and a preparation method thereof. The transparent conductive layer is made of a grapheme transparent conductive layer, and is film shaped. The transparent conductive layer has the thickness being 0.36 nm-10 nm, the transmittance of a visible region being 80-97%, and the sheet resistance being 30-500Ω/square. The transparent conductive layer can replace the existing ITO transparent conductive layer, and has better chemical strength and flexibility. For the CF substrate having a grapheme transparent conductive layer, the grapheme transparent conductive layer, in substitution of an ITO transparent conductive layer, is applied to the CF substrate, so as to obtain an electrode or a static discharge layer having high transmittance and good flexibility, which is applied to a liquid crystal display panel, can improve the transmittance of the liquid crystal panel, and can reduce the use of backlight. The preparation method of the CF substrate having a grapheme transparent conductive layer comprises forming grapheme on a growth substrate by using a CVD method, and transferring the grapheme to a CF substrate body. The method has a simple process and low cost.

||PCT/IB2013/002080||INTEL CORPORATION||OOI, Eng, Hun|
In an embodiment, a memory interface may send an indication that a request is being sent. The indication may be sent to a non-volatile memory via a point-to-point bus between a memory interface and the non-volatile memory. The memory interface may send the request to the non-volatile memory via the bus. The request may include an address that may be used to identify a location for storing or reading data. The non- volatile memory may acquire the request from the bus and process the request. After processing the request, the non-volatile memory may send an indication to the memory interface that indicates the non-volatile memory has a response to send to the memory interface. The memory interface may grant access to the bus to the non-volatile memory. After being granted access to the bus, the non-volatile memory may send the response to the memory interface.
