  1. SBIR Phase II: Integrated Voltage Regulators for Small Footprint, Efficient Power Delivery in Mobile Electronics

    SBC: Lion Semiconductor            Topic: EI

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project seeks to develop integrated voltage regulators (IVR) that are 10 times smaller than existing solutions. Power management ICs (PMICs) are chips in mobile electronic devices that deliver power from the battery to different chips (e.g., processor, memory). Existing PMICs use discrete board-level inductors to efficiently deliver power, bu ...

  2. Development of Corrosion Resistant Prestressed Concrete Strands Utilizing Liquie Plasma Technology

    SBC: CAP Technologies LLC            Topic: 141FH6

    This proposal is to prove the feasibility of a new and novel zinc-based alloyed coating on both the manufactured Grade 270 0.5 and 0.6 low-relaxation strands and for the individual wires used to make the 7-wire strand for prestressed concrete used in bridge construction. The application of the coating will use CAP Technologies LLC [CAP] proprietary and patented foam plasma technology also kn ...

  3. Structured Waveform, Magnetic Field (SWMF) PIG Development for Cracks and Corrosion

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: 132PH1

    Multiple major pipeline failures have been caused by seam weld defects not detected by available ILI technology [August 16, 2013 WSJ]. Phase I will demonstrate a game changing capability to deliver internal and external corrosion mapping and seam weld crack detection in a low-cost tool that “encourages more repetitive ILI runs and wider use.” JENTEK’s new through wall imaging method called S ...

  4. Mid-chord Rail Offset Measurement Systems (McROMS)

    SBC: TECHNICAL PRODUCTS, INC.            Topic: 141FR1

    What is needed is a lightweight system that can be deployed and used by one person that will measure and compile the track geometry data and compute the MCO for a rail section in real time without reliance on any external reference. Such a device, the Mid-chord Rail Offset Measurement System (McROMS) is the subject of this proposal. But MCO is not the only rail geometry data of interest. If this s ...

  5. Integrated Tracking and Guidance (I-TAG) System for Trenchless Utility Relocation

    SBC: White River Technologies Inc.            Topic: 141FH3

    Trenchless excavation methods, such as horizontal directional drilling (HDD) operations, offer the potential for significant cost savings on many utility relocation projects; however, these methods require extremely accurate drill head navigation in addition to precise knowledge of existing utility location in order to ensure boring operations do not interfere with existing pipelines or conduits. ...

  6. The Intelligent Brace: A Compliance Monitoring System for Scoliosis

    SBC: Liberating Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Scoliosis, a condition where there is lateral curvature of the spine, affects an estimated 6 million people in the United States. There is widespread use of bracing for treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, and recent studies have begun documenting its efficacy. These studies have indicated that user compliance is a large, yet largely unquantified, factor in successful outcomes. There are ...

  7. Therapeutic Intermittent Compression Socket

    SBC: Liberating Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this project is to develop a device that provides rapid intermittent compression to the residual limb of amputees that do not have good blood flow in their limbs. The device will be built into the prosthetic socket to provide the user with portable therapy throughout the day, which will free the user from being confined to a chair for up to six hours each day to receive the prescrib ...

  8. Socrative Learning Network

    SBC: Socrative Inc            Topic: N/A

    The project team is developing a prototype of the Socrative Learning Network, a website for teachers to share information to guide instructional practice. The website will support Socrative’s existing 600,000 registered teachers in creating, sharing, searching, and filtering assessments by content, grade, or user, with a mechanism for commentingedu on and editing questions. Pilot research in Pha ...

  9. Expanding Supports for Data-Driven Language Instruction

    SBC: LingoJingo            Topic: N/A

    The project team will strengthen the functionality of Lingo Jingo, an on-line foreign language teaching and learning website, by adding lesson development capabilities, management tools, analytic capabilities, and activities aligned with commonly used language textbooks. The product will be used by middle and high school teachers to develop or modify classroom instruction, assign lessons, and prov ...

  10. The Iowa Assessment of Skills and Knowledge for Automatic Word Recognition and Decoding (iASK)

    SBC: Foundations In Learning, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The project team is developing a prototype of an online word recognition assessment program for middle school students who are struggling readers. The assessment will address a variety of literacy skills including decoding, fluency, and word recognition. The product will generate formative assessment profiles of individual students for teachers to provide targeted instruction. In the Phase I pilot ...
