15 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S1.04
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

CoolCAD Electronics, LLC, is proposing the design and fabrication of silicon-carbide based active pixel sensor, comprising a very LARGE AREA SiC UV photodiode (>4mm2 in Phase I and >4cm2 in Phase II) with a monolithically-integrated readout circuit. SiC photodiodes offer advantages in sensitivity, low dark current, high temperature operation, a...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD11-EP1
Budget: 09/27/13 - 09/29/15

Silicon Carbide (SiC) electronics has the potential for revolutionizing the high temperature high power electronics industry. There is a strong need for tools and models for circuit design using the new SiC power devices that are coming to market. Our work in this project will focus on developing analytical models for the newly commercially avai...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Maryland

Agency: Navy
Topic: N11A-T003
Budget: 05/21/13 - 11/30/14

We propose to build a two-dimensional multi-pixel infrared detector based on rectenna technology. The rectennas comprise of a micro-antenna tuned to terahertz reception and an integrated Metal-Insulator-Metal diode. This system captures infrared radiation, rectifies it and converts it to a direct current for further processing. In this Phase II ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-2-S1.05
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

Silicon Carbide deep UV detectors can achieve large gains, high signal-to-noise ratios and solar-blind operation, with added benefits of smaller sizes, lower operating voltages, radiation hardness, ruggedness and scalability. SiC UV APDs implementation is challenging due to some material defects, relatively not-well modeled device operation, and...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: EI-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project seeks to develop a novel technique and device for high-speed uncooled room-temperature infrared (IR) imaging using micro-antennas and Metal-Insulator-Metal (MIM) rectifiers. These antenna-rectifier structures, called rectennas, will be built to convert electromagnetic waves at infrar...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Maryland

Agency: Navy
Topic: N11A-T003
Budget: 08/15/11 - 02/15/12

The overall goal at the end of this multi-phase program is to develop an energy harvester composed of rectenna arrays that are connected in parallel that harness significant amounts of infrared electromagnetic energy. The ultimate systems will be capable of harvesting watts, kilowatts of energy using these structures fabricated in parallel on a ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB092-010
Budget: 02/19/10 - 10/16/10

We propose to directly harvest energy from infrared (3-14microns) radiation sources using micro-antennas coupled to rectifying diodes and storage capacitors. The antenna receives infrared electromagnetic radiation and the rectifier converts it to direct current which is then stored. Large numbers of these rectennas connected in a conformal, ligh...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-2-X1
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

We are developing CAD tools, models and methodologies for electronics design for circuit operation in extreme environments with a focus on very low temperature and radiation effects. These new tools will help enable NASA to design next generation electronics especially for planetary projects including the Europa Jupiter System Mission. The new m...
