Award List:

Low Power 1-Bit ADC Array with Serial Output

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Dalius Baranauskas, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,306.00
Abstract:
Microwave interferometers for NASA missions such as PATH and SCLP consist of up to 900 receivers. Each receiver requires I and Q ADCs (analog-to-digital converters) for signal digitizing at >200MHz before further digital processing in the cross-correlators. Power dissipation as well as instrument… More

Fast, High Resolution 3-D Flash LIDAR Imager

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Denis Zelenin, CTO
Award Amount: $69,988.00
Abstract:
Mine and obstacle detection in very shallow water and through the surf-zone is an extremely challenging technical problem. A recent Navy system uses a 3-D LIDAR employing an image tube with a GaAsP photocathode and an anode based on a silicon PIN diode array bump bonded to a ROIC. The Navy system… More

SBIR Phase I: 3D X-ray Imager

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Denis Zelenin
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop a novel 3-D X-ray imager that will allow potential users to directly obtain 3D images with a single X-ray exposure. Computer Tomography (CT) permits capturing a 3D image of an object however, it requires bulky and… More

Low Power 2-Bit ADC Array with Serial Output

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Dalius Baranauskas, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $599,973.00
Abstract:
Microwave interferometers for NASA missions such as PATH employ the GeoSTAR instrument, consisting of 600 receivers. Each receiver requires I and Q ADCs (analog-to-digital converters) for signal digitizing at 1GHz before further processing in the cross-correlators. Power consumption as well as… More

Real Time Adaptable ROIC for improved Power and Performance Optimization in Imager Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Denis Zelenin, CTO – (310) 428-3164
Award Amount: $99,992.00
Abstract:
Remote fielding of Low Light, Near IR and Short Wave IR (N/SW-IR) focal plane arrays (FPAs) requires Readout Integrated Circuits (ROICs) that may dynamically adapt their performance parameters to meet the needs of the situation at the lowest possible power consumption. Pacific Microchip Corp.… More
