Abstract
Active Signal Technologies proposes to develop a compact, modular, high-rate data recorder that will record high quality data from an entire exposure event. The design will use hardware logic and single-port, static volatile random-access memory to minimize power required. The system will have a microcontroller that will be in standby mode until an event occurs and will remain on only for the time it takes to transfer the event record to non-volatile memory and to re-initialize the hardware logic and SRAM. In Phase I Active Signal will create a design schematic and evaluate component performance including critical timing functions, so that in the Phase-I Option it can fabricate and test a benchtop prototype. This will enable the first compact prototype circuit layout and packaging design to be created, ready for fabrication in Phase II. Phase I will also include developing a work plan for subsequent human testing; submission of regulatory documents to execute such testing in Phase II; and delivering a report on proposed hardware and software design and prototype test plan.
