  1. Development of Novel RAD-Hard ASICs and a Modular Design Methodology Using Asynchronous Architectures

    SBC: Nanomatronix, LLC            Topic: MDA18007

    The NMT/UA team propose to develop a radiation-hardened, low power, and highly robust delay-insensitive asynchronous circuit design methodology in 90nm technology, prototyped by designing a SET/SEL/SEU immune asynchronous microcontroller test chip (PIC 16C57, for example).The proposed Phase 1 SBIR effort will focus on design, simulation, prototyping and demonstration of the key functional blocks o ...

  2. Structural Reactive Polymeric Materials

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: MDA15004

    Missiles produced with reactive materials can add chemical energy to the kinetic energy generated on impact with a target. Thus, reactive materials have potential to serve as structural components resulting in possible increase lethality without a weight impact. In Phase I, Tetramer will demonstrate a new material system with significantly stronger mechanical properties and excellent reactive prop ...

  3. Off c-Axis Bulk Crystal Growth of Silicon Carbide

    SBC: BANDGAP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The development of a process to produce bulk silicon carbide (SiC) boules with alternate crystallographic orientations, specifically the a-orientation, which is perpendicular to the normally-grown c-orientation crystal, offers significant improvements inthe SiC semiconductor electronic properties. Specifically, the electron mobility will increase by a factor of five for 4H-SiC, and the thermal co ...

  4. Growth of Large Diameter Silicon Carbide Boules

    SBC: BANDGAP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Absence of low defect density large diameter (~100 mm) silicon carbide (SiC) wafers is a major barrier for the commercial production of SiC-based devices. Hence, the development of a process to produce large diameter bulk SiC boules with low defectdensity offers a significant impetus for the widespread commercialization of SiC-based devices. An approach that will simultaneously increase wafer di ...

  5. Gallium Nitride (GaN) Device Technology Enhancements Leading to Advanced Transmit/Receive (T/R) Modules for Radar Performance Enhancement

    SBC: Belford Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to increase the mobility of both n- and p-type GaN by applying tensile strain and fixing the strain by bonding to an appropriate heat sink material. Straining in other semiconductor materials is now recognized as a viable route to higherperformance. We have demonstrated in these systems how low-level strain (0.05%) can increase mobility by a factor of two. Increases were larger for p-ty ...
