  1. Intelligent Flexible Fixturing System

    SBC: ACT Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Two approaches are proposed to attack the problems of fixturing process. First, a novel hardware holding system, Dexterous Vise, is proposed. Functionally, a single Dexterous Vise is capable of revealing four faces of the clamped workpiece to the cutting tool without re-fixturing, which actually increases one degree of freedom to the machine tool. A pair of Dexterous Vises, the "Dual-Vise", ena ...

  2. Automated Accurate Aircraft Weighing System

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Herein, an innovative aircraft weighing system based on a set of piezopolymar film pad sensors is described. The wieghing system, which would operate automatically as the aircraft taxi over it, would be unobtrusive, accurate, and reliable. These sensor pads could be integrated into the flight deck surface below the grated rubber surface finish. These thin (20-30 mils) piezopolymer sensing pads ...

  3. Smart, Compact Packages for Vibration Control

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Herein, ACX proposes to develop compact, low cost, integrated smart packs for vibration reduction. Each package would include actuators and sensors, drive and signal conditioning electronics as well as simple controllers to yield a self standing solution to vibration problems. The electronics module would be low cost and compact. The pack would run off of standard available power supplies and w ...

  4. Arsine Abatement

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    The continued use of arsine gas and/or its derivatives is vital to the manufacture of a wide variety of semiconductor devices. While the use of arsine is growing, it poses serious environmental and safety problems in the industry. New methods must be found that permit the facile trapping and detoxification of arsine and its derivatives. Advanced Technology Materials, Inc. (ATM) has gained a reputa ...

  5. High Performance Thin Film Microactuator Materials

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    The potential applications of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) have only begun to be recognized. This technology demands thin film materials with exceptional microstructural quality for high performance and processes with high yields. For piezoelectric microactuator applications, thin film lead zirconate titanate (PZT) is the leading material choice. Furthermore, substitutional modificatio ...

  6. Stress Analyzer for Microelectronic Devices

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    Multilayer thin films deposited onto Si wafers often exhibit high residual stresses during processing, leading to structural failure and/or electrical breakdown. Traditional scanning x-ray diffraction provides an accurate measurement of complex stress behavior in multilayer structures, but is difficult to carry out on a routine basis. Laser deflection methods are easy to perform but provide a li ...

  7. SiC accelerometers for harsh environments

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    Sensors and control electronics based on SiC offer an opportunity to realize systems with operating temperatures approaching 500 degrees C. The unique high temperature properties and chemical robustness of SiC make it an ideal choice for applications where generic components and sensors need to function under widely varying environmental conditions The wide range of environments in which military ...

  8. Lattice Matched III-V Nitride Heterostructures

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    The III-V nitrides have recently emerged as the primary material system for UV/blue light emitters. Higher bandgap energy (Al,Ga)N alloys are currently employed as cladding layers for GaN and (In,Ga)N active region LEDs and laser structures. Lattice mismatch between the cladding and active regions, however, restricts both the thickness and composition of the layers which in turn limits the operati ...

  9. High Temperature SiC Power MOSFETs

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    Large power handling systems of 1KW to 150KW are required in a many applications ranging from aerospace to consumer electronics to industrial power systems and transportation. Conventional electronic systems, based on silicon or gallium arsenide devices, require a large number of devices enhanced with extra heat sinking and sophisticated control systems to ensure synchronous operation. The extra ...

  10. In-Cylinder Micromachined Pressure Transducers

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    Increasingly strict emissions requirements and the need to increase fuel economy and reduce service intervals have dramatically accelerated the use of monitor and control electronics in engines. traditional methods such as adjusting the air/fuel ratio to optimize catalyst performance are not effective enough to meet future requirements. Measurement of the pressure in each cylinder permits enhanc ...
