  1. GPU-Based High-Performance Computing for Accelerated Design and Analysis

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB082024

    Commodity graphics processing units (GPUs) offer tremendous computational throughput for relatively little cost. They have been shown to outperform microprocessors in the important metrics of FLOPS/dollar, FLOPS/Watt, and FLOPS/unit space and have already been applied to a wide range of numerically intense problems. In Phase I of this project, we demonstrated their potential to enhance complex C ...

  2. High Efficiency, Large-Area, 1550 nm InGaAs Photodiodes

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A back-illuminated planar InGaAs photodiode tested to have 95% quantum effiiency (QE) at 1550 nm, area greater than 1 mm2, low capacitance (<23 pF), and high bandwidth (>125 MHz) will be improved. Although the existing Phase I device exhibited bulk material dark current generation better than commercially available devices, the sidewall-generated dark current was found to dominate the noise ...

  3. A Handheld Sensor for Amorphous Coating Integrity Evaluation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: SB093002

    Under the DARPA sponsored Naval Advanced Amorphous Coating (NAAC) program, a novel, thermal sprayed amorphous metal coating has been developed. Such a coating has demonstrated superior mechanical and corrosion resistance properties. Although the coating is designed to be life-of-ship, the application and operational conditions may compromise the integrity of the coating. For example, the applicati ...

  4. FUSE: Inter-Application Security for Android

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: SB102002

    Mobile applications are becoming ubiquitous, appearing in many new situations. Some of these areas have specific requirements pertaining to information flow and device functionality. However, software on these devices is currently unregulated, and there are mechanisms within the mobile operating systems that facilitate unintended and undesirable information sharing as well as granting excessive co ...

  5. Radiation Fault Analysis for 45 Nanometer CMOS-SOI VLSI Circuits

    SBC: Lynguent, Inc.            Topic: DTRA092001

    State of the art Radiation Hardened by Design (RHBD) techniques must scale down in feature size for radiation effects in 45 nm processes, and also scale up in complexity to support radiation fault analysis of VLSI circuits. Recent access to commercial 45 nm CMOS Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) technologies has increased the interest in this technology for rad-hard electronic applications due to the in ...

  6. HIGH EFFICIENCY COMPACT MODELING OF RADIATION EFFECTS

    SBC: Lynguent, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05001

    The objective of this research is to develop beta versions of tools for automatically migrating radiation effects predicted in TCAD level tools to compact modeling tools. This transition will enable compact models that possess radiation effects to be quickly generated, which can then be used in circuit design activity. This approach is a substantial improvement over the current ad hoc approaches. ...

  7. Novel Propulsion Using Humphrey Cycle or Other Concepts

    SBC: VAPORCOR LLC            Topic: SB052026

    We propose an engine concept, which we call a Cart-Engine, which embodies both a thermodynamic cycle innovation and a mechanical innovation that can achieve exceptional efficiency, low mechanical vibration, and can burn multiple fuels. In addition, the manner in which the Cart-Engine functions promises the potential for low emissions, high power to weight, and low manufacturing cost. We have alr ...
