Award List:

STTR Phase I: High Performance Piezoelectric MEMS Microphones

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Research Institution: University of Michigan Ann Arbor
Principal Investigator: Robert J. Littrell, BS
Award Amount: $149,265.00
RI Contact: Elaine Brock
Abstract:
This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR)Phase I project seeks to develop a commercially viable, self-calibrating, piezoelectric micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) microphone. The acoustical specifications of these microphones (measured by noise floor, linearity, sensitivity) will meet or… More

Piezoelectric MEMS Microphones for Ground Testing of Aeronautical Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Robert J. Littrell, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $60,708.00
Abstract:
Improving the acoustical environment is critical in aeronautics. Airports and aeronautical systems manufacturers are facing ever-increasing demands to reduce noise levels. Aeronautical applications require the use of large arrays of high quality microphones with a large dynamic range. These arrays… More

Piezoelectric MEMS microphones for hearing aids

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Robert J. Littrell
Award Amount: $172,307.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Roughly 30 million Americans suffer from hearing loss and would benefit from some form of hearing augmentation. However, the hearing aid (HA) adoption rate is low, less than 25 percent [Marke, (2010)] and those who do a dopt wait more than 10 years before doing… More

STTR Phase II: High Performance Piezoelectric MEMS Microphones

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / STTR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Research Institution: University of Michigan Ann Arbor
Principal Investigator: Robert J. Littrell – (734) 846-2268
Award Amount: $496,373.00
RI Contact: N/A
Abstract:
This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project will develop a microphone for the test and measurement (T & M) market that utilizes piezoelectric microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology. During Phase I of this project, feasibility was demonstrated by building and testing… More

Piezoelectric MEMS Microphones for Ground Testing of Aeronautical Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Robert J. Littrell, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $599,990.00
Abstract:
Improving the acoustical environment is critical in aeronautics. Airports and aeronautical systems manufacturers are facing ever-increasing demands to reduce noise levels. Aeronautical applications require the use of high quality microphones with a large dynamic range, sometimes in large arrays. … More
