Award List:

SBIR Phase I: Low-cost, High-performance Microphones Enabled by MEMS Integration Innovation

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Neal A. Hall, PhD
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will lay the foundation for creation of a new microphone with performance characteristic of the highest precision measurement microphones today, but with size and cost approaching those of microphones found in consumer electronics. The broader… More

High performance micromachined microphones for hearing aids

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $98,100.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Overall, customer/patient satisfaction with existing hearing assistive devices is very low. Innovations at the microphone level related to marriage of high performance miniature microphone hardware with advanced signal processing have the potential to introduce… More

Seismic Detection, Miniaturized Seismometers

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Neal Hall, Dr.
Award Amount: $99,500.00
Abstract:
The Department of Energy seeks revolutionary innovations with respect to miniature seismic sensors for the monitoring of nuclear detonations. Specifically, the performance must be comparable to that obtainable by only an elite few products available today, but with orders of magnitude reduction in… More

SBIR Phase I: High Performance Directional MEMS Microphones for Communication Devices

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Caesar Garcia, MME
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will investigate a novel MEMS based microphone based on entirely new design principles. By abandoning the traditional 100 year-old microphone architecture common to both full-scale microphones as well as recently commercialized MEMS… More

Seismic Detection, Miniaturized Seismometers

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Neal Hall, Dr.
Award Amount: $737,698.00
Abstract:
The DOE is seeking revolutionary innovations with respect to miniature seismic sensors for the monitoring of nuclear detonations. The performance of these sensors must match the specifications of the best products available today, but with orders of magnitude reduction in size, weight, power, and… More

High performance micromachined microphones for hearing aids

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Caesar T. Garcia
Award Amount: $750,000.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Overall, client satisfaction with hearing-aid systems is very low. Today, only 2 percent of Americans wear a hearing aid, while it is believe that at least 10 percent of Americans could benefit from a hearing assi stive device. Innovations at the… More

SBIR Phase II:High Performance Directional MEMS Microphones for Communication Devices

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Caesar Garcia
Award Amount: $490,012.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will investigate a novel Micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) microphone based on new design principles. By abandoning the design principles of traditional microphones (both MEMS and full-scale), a vastly superior acoustical design… More
