Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of California, San Diego

Agency: Navy
Topic: N09-T035
Budget: 09/29/11 - 04/29/13

Tahoe RF s will develop BeamDirect, a phased array beam forming & beam steering system which incorporates the LO Phase Shifting technology developed during the Phase I activities. The system will perform as a broad band phase array antenna receiver from 100 MHz to a 6 GHz in conjunction with a circular broadband antenna. This system will provi...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Microelectronics Agency
Topic: DMEA-092-002
Budget: 02/01/11 - 01/31/12

Tahoe RF will design, simulate, fabricate and test a low noise amplifier (LNA) and companion power amplifier (PA). The feasibility study for this design was completed during the Phase I activities. The design will be fabricated using a noise improved device models of a 0.25 µm silicon-on-sapphire (SOS) process.

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Microelectronics Agency
Topic: DMEA102-002
Budget: 12/16/10 - 07/15/11

Silicon on Sapphire technology offer several advantages over bulk CMOS and BiCMOS technologies for the design of RFICs (RF Integrated Circuits) for the System on Chip radio applications. These advantages include superior radiation hardness, improved isolation between circuits, higher efficiency amplifiers, and more bandwidth per cost. In the las...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Microelectronics Agency
Topic: DMEA-092-002
Budget: 12/04/09 - 04/30/10

This proposal explores the feasibility of a communication system based on the modulation of a magnetic field. The principle of mutual induction states that the voltage induced by mutual induction in one inductor is always proportional to the rate of current change in the other inductor. If one inductor is in the transmitter, and the other indu...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of California, San Diego

Agency: Navy
Topic: N09-T035
Budget: 06/29/09 - 04/30/10

Coupled oscillator arrays provide electronic beam-steering for phased array antennas without the need for RF phase shifters. However, Defense systems require a large number of elements in the phased array antenna to generate antenna patterns with narrow beamwidth. This proposal outlines the simulation, fabrication, and testing of a one-dimension...
