  1. Laser Dithering Device for Handheld Liquid Particle Measurements

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: DMEA182001

    We propose a hand-held device that would be capable of measuring particles as small as 20 nm in liquid batches from semiconductor fabrication. The proposed system will overcome the complexities of existing in-line and batch sampling techniques and thus would reduce the operating time and cost of the fabrication process. The device will be small and easily portable and will not come in direct cont ...

  2. Handheld Liquid Particle Counter

    SBC: Hal Technology, LLC            Topic: DMEA182001

    The trend of microelectronic processing technology is for more advanced complex devices integrated in smaller size. Particles could become significantly more  prevalent as killer defects and have adverse effect on fabrication yield rate. Meanwhile, clean environment control requirements originally focused on particles in the air have been extended to encompass liquids that come into direct conta ...

  3. BlockChain Enhancement for Trusted FPGAs & ASICs

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: DMEA182003

    ASIC and FPGA design and manufacturing companies are globally distributed. As a result, third party IP designs sent to offshore to untrusted fabs for manufacture are vulnerable to security threats such as cloning, over-building and reverse engineering. There is a growing need to enhance the security of the ASIC and FPGA supply chain. The blockchain technology which is primarily used in cryptocurr ...

  4. High-brilliance Multi-Energy X-ray Source and Optics for Rapid IC Inspection

    SBC: Sigray, Inc.            Topic: DMEA162001

    This Phase II SBIR proposal aims to develop an x-ray illumination beam system comprising a dual-target x-ray source and a set of magnifying Wolter x-ray optics for use in laboratory-based integrated circuit (IC) inspection x-ray microscopes. Due to the increasing reliance on electronics for military systems and devices, a method to quickly analyze ICs in 3D is critical. X-ray microscopy enabled by ...

  5. Through-Lens Fiducial Marking System

    SBC: Checkpoint Technologies LLC            Topic: DMEA172002

    Awarded Phase I and having completed the Phase I concept and feasibility study of the innovative development of a tool, Thru-Lens Fiducial Marking, that can be integrated into an IR microscope that is able to create fiducial marks on the surface of the backside of silicon, we now propose to embark on Phase II, or implementation of said technology. The current state-of-art in semiconductor device ...

  9. "EXTENDING A HCLPF-BASED SEISMIC MARGIN REVIEW TO ANALYZE PLANT DAMAGE STATES AND THE ROLE OF HUMAN FACTORS AND NON-SEISMIC FAILURES"

    SBC: Future Resources Associate Inc            Topic: N/A

    TECHNIQUES HAVE RECENTLY BEEN DEVELOPED TO ANALYZE THE 'SEISMIC MARGIN' OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT USING THE HCLPF CONCEPT (HIGH CONFIDENCE OF A LOW PROBABILITY OF FAILURE). STARTING WITH AN EARTHQUAKE LEVEL SHOSEN FOR MARGIN REVIEW, THE TECHNIQUE DETERMINES WHETHER THE PLANT CAN OR CANNOT 'WITHSTAND THE REVIEW-EARTHQUAKE WITHOUT CORE DAMAGE. HERE 'WITHSTAND' MEANS 'WITHSTAND WITH A HIGH CONFIDENCE ...
