  1. Massively Parallel High Temperature Probe System for Wafer-level Reliability Testing

    SBC: Celadon Systems Inc.            Topic: 910021R

    Historical methods of reliability assessment are less and less effective as device sizes shrink. Larger sample sizes and longer duration tests are increasingly needed. At the same time, efforts to continue scaling semiconductors to ever smaller geometries is leading to an explosion of new device structures, materials and processes. The cost of testing these innovations is becoming a major barrier ...

  3. INTERACTIVE DISTRIBUTED LOGISTICS MANAGEMENT

    SBC: Caps Logistics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL DEMONSTRATE THE PRACTICALITY OF AN INTERACTIVE, HIERARCHICAL, DISTRIBUTED PLANNING SYSTEM FOR LOGISTICS MANAGEMENT. WE WILL DESIGN A SYSTEM THAT WILL SUPPORT PARALLEL, ASYNCHRONOUS, INTERACTIVE LOGISTICS PLANNING AT MULTIPLE LEVELS OF THE MANAGEMENT HIERARCHY AND AT MULTIPLE SITES SO THAT MANY PEOPLE COOPERATIVELY BUILD AND ADMINISTER A LOGISTICS PLAN. FOR EXAMPLE, A HIGHER-LEVEL ...

  4. FAIL-SAFE FAULT-TOLERANT ELECTRONICS

    SBC: Daina            Topic: N/A

    FUTURE MILITARY AVIONICS SYSTEMS WILL REQUIRE AT LEAST AN ORDER OF MAGNITUDE IMPROVEMENT IN MEAN TIME BETWEEN CRITICAL FAILURES. TO ACHIEVE THIS GOAL INNOVATIVE FAIL-SAFE FAULT-TOLERANT ELECTRONIC SYSTEM DESIGN CONCEPTS WILL BE NEEDED. THE APPROACH PROPOSED BY DAINA WILL BE BASED ON THE USE OF EXTERNAL ENVIRONMENT DATA, BUILT-IN RELIABILITY MODEL, ADAPTIVE STATISTICAL SYSTEM STATE AND PARAMETER ES ...

  5. PULSE TO DIGITAL CONVERSION SYSTEM

    SBC: Moscow Electronics Co            Topic: N/A

    THE COMPLETE DESIGN IS PRESENTED WITHIN THIS PROPOSAL FOR A SYSTEM WHICH WILL PROVIDE A PRECISE, ONE-STEP CONVERSION DIRECTLY FROM A PULSE TRAIN INPUT TO A DIGITIZED PULSE RATE OUTPUT. IT IS A DISTRIBUTED PROCESSOR SYSTEM EMPLOYING A MASTER CONTROL PROCESSOR AND FROM 2 TO 30 IDENTICAL PULSE MODULES. THE PULSE MODULE IS A STANDALONE UNIT WHICH PERFORMS THE PULSE PERIOD MEASUREMENT. THE MICROPROCESS ...

  8. Self-Reconfigurable Memristor-Based Computing Architecture: Design, Fabrication, and Characterization

    SBC: Bio Inspired Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF10BT31

    ABSTRACT: The behavior of the Chalcogenide based ion-conducting memristor lends itself for use as an element in a simple neuromorphic computing circuit. The reaction of a circuit to an external stimulus may be the result of its ability to learn from previous similar, yet unrelated exposures to environmental stimulus. A highly specialized variation of the memristor, previously developed by the Ad ...

  9. Precise fabrication of photonic integrated systems using low cost nanoimprint process

    SBC: Sinoora Inc.            Topic: OSD10T006

    In this STTR proposal, we propose to develop a cost-effective and high-fidelity nanoimprint process for the fabrication of integrated photonics devices. VLSI photonics applications require a hig-level of control on device-to-device uniformity. Nanoimprint lithography (NIL) holds promise to overcome the current technological challenges in lithography while being cost effective at the same time. One ...

  10. Electrical power generation for sustained high speed flight

    SBC: Johnson Research & Development Co Inc            Topic: AF08BT25

    ABSTRACT: Providing electrical power for long duration hypersonic flight is a technology that is required to bring about this revolutionary mode of transport. Whether for weapons delivery or for space access, the long duration missions anticipated require a novel approach to the generation of electrical power during flight. Scramjets contain no rotating shafts from which typical generators or mec ...
