Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S4.04
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

Manned and robotic space missions require high-performance electronic control systems capable of operating for extended periods in harsh environments subject to radiation, extreme temperatures, vibration and shock. Semiconductor technologies capable of meeting these demanding requirements tend to have limited capabilities, are expensive, and ar...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S20.03
Budget: 06/12/15 - 06/11/17

Radiation Hardened Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) provide the highest performance, lowest power and smallest size ICs for Space Missions. To dramatically reduce the development cycle, and reduce cost to tape out, Micro-RDC proposes a Structured ASIC approach. In this methodology, we fix an array of complex logic cells and provi...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-192
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

ABSTRACT: The E-Band frequency bands from 71 to 76 GHz and 81 to 86 GHz have been designated for satellite down- and uplinks, and have gained an increased interest. The wide bandwidth in excess of 1GHz allows the use of low order modulation schemes and simple receiver implementation. In other words, coarser Analog to Digital converters (ADC) an...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-250
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

ABSTRACT: High density radiation-hardened non-volatile memory continues to be a limiting factor in the design of systems for use in space environments. Non-volatile memories can support a number of storage applications, such as CPU configuration, flight control systems, flight data recording, image capture, store and forward communications and ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-096
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

ABSTRACT: Central Processing Units (CPUs) continue to grow in complexity while introducing higher speed clocks required to process data at extreme speeds. Advanced space grade, radiation-hardened processors are following this trend as processing requirements in space become more demanding, but for the full benefit to be derived from to faster C...
