Abstract
Intrinsix proposes a low power, high-integration, radiation hardened software defined Global Positioning System (GPS) single chip solution. The phase I SBIR contract proposes two major components. First the proposed GPS receiver is a heterodyne Radio Frequency Sigma Delta Modulator (RF-SDM) that significantly improves performance over other integrated solutions by absorbing mixers and high selectivity filters into a specialized Analog to Digital Convertor (ADC). Second Intrinsix proposes the development of a flexible digital platform using the NASA Navigator GPS as a baseline. The phase I SBIR contract will focus on the validation of the RF architecture, architecting an extendable digital platform for signal processing and the methodology for radiation-hardening by design in a modern commercial sub-100nm process technology.
