INTRINSIX SBIR AND PATENT PORTFOLIO

Internal and Government-funded Research and Development

Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR)

In 2009 Intrinsix began leveraging the Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) program by applying its internally funded innovations within high-integration electronics for a range of DoD applications. The following table summarizes Intrinsix SBIR projects:

SBIR Number/Award Date

SBIR Title

Description

AF093-160

Phase I – 12/09

Phase II – 6/11

Phase II STMP 8/15

Readout Integrated Circuit Technology for Strained Layer Superlattice Photodetectors

Generically applies patent pending technique to enable SDM high dynamic range ADCs and mostly digital characteristics to Read Out Integrated Circuits (ROICs)

MDA09-025

Phase I – 4/10

Phase II - 6/11

Radiation Hardened Monolithic Heterogeneous Processors

Multicore System-on-Chip (SoC) Rad-Hard-by-Design (RHBD) techniques enable the design to be targeted for a high density process. The highly modular and scalable architecture with several Digital Signal Processing cores and several General Purpose Processing cores aims to accelerate space image processing applications.

AF103-099

Phase I – 1/11

Phase II invite - 6/11

Miniature GPS Receiver to Support Operationally Responsive Space Missions

 

Intrinsix proposes to develop a miniaturized, low-power silicon radio architecture for a space qualified GPS receiver that is adequate for small spacecraft operation.

A111-037

Phase 1 – 6/11

Real Time Adaptable Read Out Integrated Circuit (ROIC)

ROIC enhancements for Real-Time adaptability to sense the scene content and to dynamically adjust resolution, frame rate, dynamic range and/or sensitivity to adapt to changing image quality and power consumption needs.

MDA10-032

Phase 1 – 6/11

Rad-Hard, Low Power, Variable Bandwidth/Resolution Analog-to-Digital (ADC) and Digital to Analog (DAC) Converters

A field programmable ADC and DAC both suitable for space and aeronautical applications. The patented Intrinsix approach eliminates the large power consumption penalty which is traditionally incurred with programmable SDMs.

MDA10-033

Phase 1 – 6/11

Lightweight Components

Single Chip Space Qualified GPS Receiver
