  1. Rigorous Analysis and Design of Nano-Photonic Devices using a Novel Hardware Approach

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB031016

    A nearly universal trend in modern technology is integrating systems, and their associated devices, on decreasingly smaller scales. Examples range from complete telecommunication systems on a chip to implantable medical devices smaller than human cells. The majority of these devices apply hybrid designs that integrate on a commensurate scale electronics with active and passive optical components. ...

  2. Hardware Assisted Electronic Circuit Simulation System

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB041029

    In this proposal, we outline an approach for performing a complete electromagnetic analysis of electrical circuits in a fraction of the time that is currently possible. As clock rates increase, the need for such analysis grows. Current tools are inadequate to handle this burden. The computational times required excessively tax tools running on even the most state-of-the-art computers. To comba ...

  3. Hardware Assisted Electronic Circuit Simulation System

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB041029

    In Phase I, EM Photonics demonstrated the viability of using a reconfigurable hardware approach to accelerating the simulation of electronic circuits based on their electromagnetic properties. In Phase II, this technology will be used to create a solver capable of analyzing mixed signal circuits 64 times faster than is currently available from equivalent software. The resulting device will shrin ...

  4. Chemical Nano-Imprint Lithography

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB041030

    The rapid expansion in the electronics industry has given rise to what has become known as Moore's law. At its core, lies advances in lithography that enable the miniaturization of features patterned on semiconductor substrates. As the minimum feature patterned on modern integrated circuits approaches 100nm, projection photolithography is put under enormous pressure to satisfy the demands of indus ...

  5. Chemical Nano-Imprint Lithography

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB041030

    The overall objective of this Phase II project is to optimize the fabrication procedure associated with the chemical lithography proposed in Phase I to fabricate nanophotonic structures and devices at a fraction of the cost of existing technologies. We plan to use our optimized chemical lithography procedure to fabricate an ultra-high resolution patterns and devices including nano-probe for near f ...

  6. Flat Head-Mounted Displays

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB041027

    A number of military situations require individual soldiers and pilots to instantaneously respond to complex visual scenes and make rapid decisions regarding potential threats. Text and graphics overlaid on the scene provide a means to aid the soldier in the decision making process. Helmet mounted displays that simultaneously allow the direct view of the natural scene with text and graphic overl ...

  7. GPU-Based CFD Analysis for Modeling Complex UAV Flight Scenarios

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB082024

    Recent advances in computing have produced special-purpose hardware comprised of vector processors streamlined for high-performance computations. Development of these devices, such as graphics processing units (GPUs) and the Cell Broadband Engine (Cell Processor), has been advanced by the videogame industry. In an effort to increase flexibility and enter new markets, vendors have increased platf ...

  8. Object-Accelerated Computational Fabric

    SBC: EXOGI LLC            Topic: SB072008

    CPU technology has progressed to a point of diminishing marginal returns in its current direction. The great success of the highly pipelined sequential processor has now become a hindrance to the efficient scalability for the evolutionary escape route of cookie-cutter chip multi-processor (CMP) designs. RISC instruction sets exist because they are easy to decode and pipeline, but they have relativ ...

  9. Graph-Matching Accelerator (GMA)

    SBC: EXOGI LLC            Topic: SB082024

    We propose to explore the applicability of COTS general-purpose graphics processing units (GPGPU) to approximate graph matching problems, in order to dramatically improve the speed and utility of DoD-relevant processing areas such as machine vision, target recognition and social network analysis.
