  4. 64MB+ Radiation-Hardened, Non-Volatile Memory for Space

    SBC: Microelectronics Research Development Corporation            Topic: AF141250

    ABSTRACT: High density radiation-hardened non-volatile memory continues to be a limiting factor in the design of systems for use in space environments. Non-volatile memories can support a number of storage applications, such as CPU configuration, flight control systems, flight data recording, image capture, store and forward communications and the list goes on. A high density non-volatile memory ...

  9. A Compact Membrane Reactor Methanol Reformer

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: A07T011

    Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) fuel cells require a relatively pure, concentrated hydrogen stream, with very low levels of carbon monoxide (CO) in order to prevent poisoning of the fuel cell anode catalyst. In addition, removing inerts and impurities (such as CO2) from the hydrogen feed to the fuel cell increases a fuel cell’s electrical conversion efficiency. TDA Research, Inc. (TDA), in ...
