  1. MANUFACTURING COST ANALYSIS- GALLIUM ARSENIDE MMIC FOR PHASE ARRAY RADAR TRANSMIT/RECEIVER MODULES

    SBC: Anadigics Inc            Topic: N/A

    MMIC YIELD IS THE SIGNIFICANT FACTOR IN DETERMINING BOTH CHIP COST AND LEVEL OF INTEGRATION. IN ORDER TO MAXIMIZE YIELD, IT IS NECESSARY TO ESTABLISH A CONSISTENT, REPRODUCIBLE PROCESS CONTROL, COUPLED WITH CREATIVE CIRCUIT DESIGN TECHNIQUES USED TO CREATE SHIP SETS WHICH ARE TOLERANT TO PROCESS VARIATIONS. A LARGE PROPORTION OF THE FINAL COST FOR THE END PRODUCT IS RELATED TO THE ASSEMBLY AND FIN ...

  2. TOUGH HIGH MODULUS EPOXY CASTING MATERIALS

    SBC: Gumbs Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OVERALL OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF PREPARING LOW VISCOSITY, ROOM TEMPERATURE CURABLE, TOUGH, HIGH MODULUS EPOXY CASTING MATERIALS USING POLY(ARYL ETHER KETONES) AND POLY(ARYL ETHER SULFONE KETONE) COPOLYMERS AS IMPACT MODIFIERS. TOUGH, HIGH MODULUS CASTING MATERIALS ARE NOT AVAILABLE. AS THE MODULUS INCREASES, THE BRITTLENESS OF THE CONVENTIONAL PLASTICS ALS ...

  3. DIRECT SURFACE MOUNT IC PACKAGE FOR PCB'S

    SBC: International Micro Industries            Topic: N/A

    THIS EFFORT WILL FOCUS ON LOWERING COST AND IMPROVING PER- FORMANCE BY ELIMINATING CERAMIC AND PLASTIC PACKAGES PRES- USED IN SURFACE MOUNTING SEMICONDUCTOR CHIPS. THE CHIP WILL BE MOUNTED DIRECTLY TO A PREPARED FOOTPRINT ON THE PRINTED CIRCUIT BOARD (PCB) UTILIZING ADVANCED TAPE AUTO- MATED BONDING (TAB) AND NEW CHIP OVERCOATING MATERIALS. A COMMERCIALLY AVAILBLE VLSI SHIP WITH MORE THAN 60 I/O'S ...

  4. CERAMIC REINFORCEMENT FOR METAL MATRIX COMPOSITES DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Material Concepts Inc            Topic: N/A

    RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY HAVE DEMONSTRATED THAT DISCONTINUOUS CERAMIC FIBER REINFORCEMENT CAN BE INCORPORATED IN A METAL MATRIX BY THE RELATIVELY SIMPLE AND INEXPENSIVE PROCESS OF SQUEEZE CASTING. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO UPGRADE THIS TECHNOLOGY TO PRODUCE MATERIALS WHICH ARE FULLY, RATHER THAN SELECTIVELY, REINFORCED BY UP TO 20 VOLUME PERCENT DISCONTINUOUS FIBERS ...

  5. MATRIX ALLOY DESIGN FOR TOUGHENING DISCONTINUOUSLY REINFORCED COMPOSITES

    SBC: Materials Reliability Inc            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT ALUMINUM MATRIX COMPOSITES WHICH USE ALLOYS REQUIRING SOLUTION HEAT TREATING, QUNEHCING, AND ELEVATED TEMPERATURE AGING SUFFER FROM POOR TOUGHNESS. IT IS EXPECTED THE TOUGHNESS OF ALUMINUM MATRIX COMPOSITES CAN BE SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASED THROUGH THE USE OF 5000 SERIES ALLOYS WHICH HAVE HIGH WORK HARDENING RATES AND GOOD DUCTILITY. ANY LOSS IN COMPOSITE STRENGTH CAN BE COMPENSATED BY ADJUST ...

  6. A CONFIGURABLE AUTOMATED LIBRARIAN FOR COMPUTER SOFTWARE SOURCE CODE

    SBC: Modular Software Systems            Topic: N/A

    COORDINATION OF THE SHARING OF SOURCE CODE IN MEDIUMETO LARGE-SCALE SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS POSES A DIFFICULT PROBLEM IN THE ABSENCE OF A SOURCE CODE LIBRARIAN SYSTEM. UNFORTUNATELY, SYSTEMS OF THIS TYPE, WHILE POWERFUL AND FLEXIBLE, GENERALLY REQUIRE A LEVEL OF EXPERTISE AND COMMITMENT NOT COMMONLY FOUND IN THE APPLICATIONS CODE DEVELOPER. IN AN ATTEMPT TO ADDRESS THIS PROBLEM, THIS PROPOSA ...

  7. FAST SHORTLINE TRACING FOR SURVIVABILITY/VULNERABILITY CODES

    SBC: Physics Mathematics &            Topic: N/A

    ALL SURVIVABILITY/VULNERABILITY COMPUTER CODES, INCLUDING THOSE FOR PROJECTILES, LASERS, AND RADIATION EFFECTS, INVOLVE TRACING SAMPLE PATHS (CALLED SHOTLINES) THROUGH COMPUTERIZED GEOMETRY MODELS. FOR COMPLEX EQUIPMENT, HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF SHOTLINES ARE ANALYZED TO DETERMINE ITS VULNERABILITY TO VARIOUS WEAPON EFFECTS. THUS, THE SHOTLINE-TRACING COMPUTER CODES STRONGLY INFLUENCE THE ACCURACY ...

  8. MONOLITHIC INTEGRATION OF OPTICAL STRUCTURES IN SUPERLATTICES BY MEV ION IMPLANTATION

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    INTEGRATED OPTICS IS THE ANALOG OF INTEGRATED ELECTRONICS IN SEMICONDUCTOR CIRCUITS USED FOR COMMUNICATIONS PURPOSES. INTEGRATED OPTICS HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED WITH COMPONENTS THAT ARE COMBINED INTO SIMPLE HYBRID CIRCUITS, HOWEVER MONOLITHIC OPTICS HAS BEEN IMPEDED THROUGH DIFFICULTIES IN CONSTRUCTING COMPONENTS IN A SINGLE MATERIALS SYSTEM. GAAS AND ITS ALLOYS HOLD PROMISE AS CANDIDATES FOR MONOLIT ...

  9. COMPACT HIGH POWER LASERS FOR MODERN DEFENSE APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Advec Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF COMPACT, HIGH ENERGY DENSITY, HIGH POWER (AND POTENTIALLY C.W.) LASER SYSTEMS CAPABLE OF PROPAGATING THROUGH BOTH AIR AND WATER COULD PAVE THE WAY FOR NEXT GENERATION TACTICAL NAVAL SYSTEMS. APPLICATIONS IN OTHER DEFENSE AREAS AS WELL AS A HOST OF COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS ARE ALSO POSSIBLE WITH THESE TYPES OF SYSTEMS. WE PROPOSE TO PROVIDE A DETAILED PLAN AND DESIGN OF SPECIFIC E ...
