  1. Microelectronics Component Adhesive Selection and Design Rules for Failure Avoidance

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: MDA14T002

    Thermally induced fatigue and residual stress introduced during fabrication are sources of stress related failure in microelectronics, which raises concerns about product reliability and specification. CFDRC has teamed with experts in the reliability of microelectronics packaging to develop a testing and physics based modeling protocol to correlate material properties and thermal loading conditio ...

  2. Base Metal Electrode Capacitor Test Methods

    SBC: FUNDO SCIENCE CORPORATION            Topic: MDA14T003

    Miniaturized base metal electrodes (BME) multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCC) are of great interest for future missile applications as designers are striving to achieve smaller, lighter, cheaper, faster and better electronic assemblies without sacrificing long-term performance. Unfortunately, screening, reliability and qualifications criteria are either not available or not standardized. In the ...

  3. An Embedded Health Monitoring System for Determining Readiness of Electronic Components

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: MDA14T001

    Nokomis ultra-sensitive radio frequency (RF) sensor, the Hiawatha System, can leverage changes in unintended emissions signatures to monitor the overall state of electronic device health. As a device ages, emissions signatures change in a predictable and deterministic manner, enabling reliable determination of device readiness. Under this effort, Nokomis proposes to leverage hand-held embedded h ...

  4. Failure Avoidance in Microelectronics through Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE) Mismatch Modeling and Design

    SBC: Space Micro Inc.            Topic: MDA14T002

    Space Micro will develop the core of the decision support system, assemble the models and material properties and demonstrate the utility of the program in materials selection on a subset of failures related to a specific test-bed, which will be the attachment of quad-flat no-leads (QFN) and ball grid array (BGA) devices to printed wiring boards using different solders, underfills, QFN or BGA geom ...

  5. Micro-Particle Debris Characterization from Hyper-Velocity Impacts

    SBC: Torch Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T002

    Leveraging the results of our Phase I work, the Torch Team proposes to execute laboratory-based experiments to elucidate fundamental micro-debris formation mechanisms to improve optical modeling of impacts. Optical signatures from impacts collected over the last decade have identified definitive micro-debris parameter trends. However, current theories have difficulty reproducing these optical ob ...

  6. Lightweight, Stable Optical Bench with Integrated Vibration Attenuation

    SBC: SAN DIEGO COMPOSITES, INC.            Topic: MDA13T007

    The goal of this program is to design a lightweight optical bench capable of remaining stable under temperature and moisture changes, while isolating the precision optical array from vibrations such as engine noise and air turbulence. By integrating a customizable periodic stack in the bench, vibrations are attenuated more effectively than commercially available mounts. Additionally, the periodic ...

  7. An Open-Source Platform for Inter-Network Analytics of High-Consequence Events

    SBC: ANOMALEE INC.            Topic: DTRA14B003

    Objectives and Intellectual Merit: The infrastructure of modern civilization is a set of complex systems1 that dynamically interact across multiple layers of abstraction. Researchers from many disciplines2 are designing analytical tools for predicting the global and local behaviors of these complicated, multi-layer networks. Easily usable, available (open source) and inter-operated tools are neede ...

  8. A Novel, Microscale, Distributable Sensor Technology for Ionizing Radiation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA14B004

    Terrorist use of radioactive nuclear materials via nuclear and/or radiological dispersion devices (dirty bombs) is a serious threat. Therefore, it is critical to detect the proliferation of nuclear material. Critical challenges facing this objective include: (a) high sensitivity detection of signature emissions (e.g., gamma rays) from common radioactive isotopes behind shielding, and (b) cost-effe ...
