Pecision Engineered Resistor Arrays from Band-gap Engineered Materials
Phone: (520) 294-7115
The performance of existing resistors is unsatisfactory for high frequency, small foot print, low noise electronic and communication applications. These technology limitations can be addressed with resistors prepared from proprietary band-gap engineered, near-molecular scale materials. This project, during Phase I, will establish the proof-of-concept that commercially useful resistor arrays can be prepared from near-molecular scale materials. Phase II effort will seek to optimize and produce array prototypes. Phase III will commercialize the technology. Proposed research will build the foundation for a whole new family of molecular electronic devices. Potential specific applications include launching of resistors and resistor arrays that are needed for HF, VHF, UHF, and radio frequency electrical, electronic, and communication circuits. The technology will be timely for the anticipated market trend towards miniaturization of electronics to nanometer feature size.
