Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-170
Budget: 05/30/13 - 04/01/14

ABSTRACT: Astronix proposes a particle beam generator for satellite thruster applications based on a novel MEMS technology for fabricating dense arrays of micron-scale particle guns in bonded silicon wafer substrates. Individual micro-guns as small as one micron crossectional diameter are possible, on a pitch of under 2 microns. A fully scala...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF112-062
Budget: 11/17/11 - 11/19/12

ABSTRACT: Astronix Research Corp. proposes to investigate a revolutionary electron-beam analog-to-digital converter (ADC) based on a micro-cathode ray digitizer concept using micron scale, high performance electron guns built with a novel MEMS process concept in silicon. Based on previous work under NRO DII funding we propose to demonstrate ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF103-092
Budget: 02/18/11 - 02/18/12

ABSTRACT: Astronix Research Corp. proposes a novel pipeline ADC in 45nm CMOS SOI with 2GSPS sample rate and 62dB SNDR dynamic performance at ½ Nyquist rate (10 bits SNDR). The approach is based on extensive analysis and simulation showing that with properly optimized architecture and circuit topologies, as well as other proprietary methods, a ...
