30 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-O1
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

During this phase I SBIR effort unique proven lattice and bandgap engineering techniques will be utilized to epitaxially grow InAlAs / InGaAs on GaN substrate for the design and fabrication of high power reconfigurable transceiver single MMIC.

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-2-S6
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

TLC demonstrated a high performance remote Doppler Radar adjustable X-band to W-band transceiver chip that can perform well as a FMCW, super-heterodyne or pulse radar that meets space qualification specifications. This reconfigurable transceiver will serve as the basis for the precipitation & cloud measurement doppler radar system that will be d...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 07-1
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

During Phase I, TLC will demonstrate and deliver a remote mixed-mode adjustable X-band to W-band transceiver chip that can perform well as a FMCW, super-heterodyne or pulse radar that meets space qualification specifications. This reconfigurable transceiver will serve as the basis for the precipitation & cloud measurement doppler radar system t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA05-032
Budget: 06/14/06 - 12/31/06

During Phase I, an X-Band to W-Band reconfigurable mix-mode digital/photonic/RF transceiver MMIC will be delivered that demonstrates >8 GHz of instantaneous bandwidth. The high speed digital circuits will demonstrate digital control and DSP capability on-chip with high sensitivity (low phase noise, low nose figure) MMW T/R section and ultra fas...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-043
Budget: 04/15/05 - 04/15/06

New fully integrated low-cost, low-phase noise microwave Voltage control oscillator MMICs will be developed after the successful demonstration of the proposed effort. TLC will integrate exclusive doping profiles of their patented varactor diode capabilities with their patented VCO MMIC desings on a lattice engineered substrate to develop and del...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will develop an innovative low-cost W-band (70-80 GHz) single chip transceiver using the metamorphic wafer technology developed in Phase I, and efficiently integrating the various MMIC components. The low cost non-electronic beam FET processes, MM HEMTs, and initial ch...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-026
Budget: 07/09/03 - 07/19/04

Current military and commercial communication systems at lower frequencies experience spectrum crowding, and does not have wide bandwidths needed for high data rates. Broadband Low Noise Amplifiers (LNA) are crucial components in any receiver system. Although a wide variety of LNAs are currently available in the frequency bands below 50 GHz, lit...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N02-140
Budget: 02/03/03 - 08/02/03

TLC will develop a wire-bond free wide band (X-band to Ka-band) miniature low cost high trhoughput radar transceiver technology that integrates a circular polarized antenna array with a mix-mode (digital& RF) MMIC transceiver chip. This will be developed by systematically utilizing TLC's proven capabilities of mix-mode lattice engineered materia...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02-027
Budget: 01/21/03 - 04/29/05

Advance millimeter wave (MMW) transceivers are needed to further enhance the U.S. military current and future communication, detection and guidance systems. TLC will develop and demonstrate a unique low-cost, wire-bond-free, 70-94 GHz W-band antenna integrated MMIC transceiver that also meet commercial performance, low price, and simplicity req...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project aims to develop novel, highly integrated, high performance series of high frequency (Ka to W-band) GaAs Monolithic Voltage Controlled Oscillators (VCO) by efficient integration of hyperabrupt varactor diode with the Pseudomorphic High Electron Mobility Transistor (PHEMT) oscillator. This M...
