Award List:

SEPARATION OF LARGE DNA MOLECULES BY GEL ELECTROPHORESIS USING A SWEEPING ELECTRIC FIELD

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Cyrus Ashtiani , Dir., Engineering Services
Award Amount: $49,781.00
Abstract:
A new concept is described in which an alternating magnetic field is used to induce a "sweeping" electric field with adjustable "sweep angle" and "frequency" for gel electrophoresis. the easily adjustable sweep angle and frequency are known to be key factors in resolution of electrophoresis systems… More

Principal Investigator: Xingchao Yuan
Award Amount: $720,000.00
Abstract:
A methodology is proposed for introducing the capability of modeling active MMICs into the industry-standard three dimensional electromagnetic field simulator High Frequency Structure Simulator (HFSS) and Maxwell SI Eminence. The first objective of the proposed work is to evaluate the existing… More

Focused Application Software for Design of Ferrite Patch Antennas

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1996 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Brian Anderson
Award Amount: $60,000.00
Abstract:
Currently, most antenna array designs are mechanically steered. However, as demand for higher performance antennas increases, an electronic replacement for the mechanical system becomes necessary. An alternative that may prove to be more cost effective is to use ferrite patch antennas as the… More

Adaptive Computing for RF Device and Component Modeling

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1997 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: John Silvestro
Award Amount: $72,000.00
Abstract:
While circuit simulation tools have revolutionized the art of RF and microwave design, these tools are only as good as the component values they employ. The increased demand for reduced design cycles and easier to manufacture systems has generated the need for accurate and reliable tools. Current… More

AUTOMATED DEVICE MODEL EXTRACTION

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1998 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Mr Jason Gerber
Award Amount: $99,609.00
Abstract:
Accurate modeling of active RF devices is a critical component in circuit and system design. In the past the generated model's accuracy depended heavily on the expertise of the scientist who was performing the model extraction. This proposal develops algorithms and scripting planning for reducing… More

Development of Electromagnetic (EM) Dosimetric Evaluation Software

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1998 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Mr. John Silvestro
Award Amount: $69,916.00
Abstract:
The interaction of electromagnetic (EM) radiation with living tissue is an important area of current research. Part of this interest is due to the possible health concerns for users of personal communication and military systems. Medical research in the use of EM radiation for such applications as… More
