  1. Practical Roots of Trust for Mobile Devices

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: HSB0132002

    To meet the critical security needs of the Department of Homeland Security and others, we propose two methods for providing a secure root of trust for mobile devices. One method is designed to integrate as easily into existing systems, while the other requires deeper integration but provides correspondingly stronger security. The keys to our work are practicality and integration: practicality to e ...

  2. SBIR Phase I: Silicon quantum-dot phosphors for LED general illumination

    SBC: LUMISANDS, INC            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project seeks to greatly improve the light output of white-light light-emitting diodes (LEDs) using fluorescent nanoparticles or quantum dots (QDs) made from silicon. The most efficient and economical design for a contemporary white LED is based on a blue LED chip which excites a yellow-emitting rare-earth phosphor. This particular mix of blue and ye ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: Low cost, scalable and selective electrochemical TSV fill technology for 3D IC interconnects

    SBC: Nano3d Systems, LLC            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project advances a novel method to fabricate 3D IC interconnects. Physical and economical limitations for 2D scaling (Moore's Law) prevents further increase of integration density to improve the performance of integrated circuits (IC). These challenges have stimulated the development of 3D through-silicon via (TSV) technology (so called 'Mo ...
