  2. Nanomachine Device for Semiconductor Process Control Monitoring

    SBC: Xallent LLC            Topic: None

    Conventional characterization and test methods are increasingly ineffective when applied to structures less than 100 nanometers, causing challenges across R&D, process control and failure analysis. An increasing number of subtle defects become prominent drivers of failure as device size and operating margins decrease, e.g., processing anomalies in thin gate oxides, substrate problems related to do ...

  3. Gap-Free Model-Based Engineering for Manufacturing and Analysis: Digital Thread without Translation

    SBC: Nvariate, Inc.            Topic: None

    Modern Model-Based Enterprise / Engineering (MBE) systems rely on freeform surfaces built as complex combinations of geometric primitives to define engineered objects. Unfortunately, the intersection of freeform surfaces in MBE applications results in highly approximated solutions, degrading models that cost billions annually by US industry to fix. Current technology limits the abilities of users ...

  6. Wireless Transducer Interface Module for Smart Sensor Network with Localization Capability

    SBC: Complete Test and Measurement Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Homeland security and first responders need high quality & timely information upon which to make critical decisions. In a number of homeland security scenarios, the information will be a distillation of data gathered from an array of sensors. Such data can consist of temperature, vibration and the like along with the position of each sensor. This project proposes meeting this need through an innov ...

  10. Acoustic Pulsed Phase Locking Energy Sensor (APPLES)

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Luna Innovations has developed for NIST a low-cost, yet high resolution acoustic sensor system capable of determining ten micro-degree changes in a water path caused by clinical medical radiation devices. A system will be delivered to NIST for their evaluation and testing. The sensors are external to the water and play a negligible role in error sources from thermal transfer in contrast to current ...
