Project Title:

High Density Passive Component

Arrays for Analog ASICs

Technical Abstract (Limit 200 words)

High density passive component arrays are

increasingly needed to meet the needs for

miniaturized electronics and to interface various

active components to analog ASICs. Existing

technology has inherently limits the packing density

and foot print size of reliable arrays. NRC proposes

a technology that can overcome this technology

barrier and yield high resistance, high capacitance,

high voltage, thermally stable, low pitch fabrication

of reliable passive component arrays. NRC's

technical approach during Phase I would be to

establish the proof-of-concept by producing

proprietary nanostructured materials and

fabricating arrays from them. Phase II will optimize

the proposed technology, develop prototypes and

field test the arrays with lead customers. Phase III

will commercialize the technology.

Potential Commercial Applications (Limit 200 words)

Arrays manufactured from nanostructured

materials can enable NASA to interface strip

detectors to ASICs in high-energy sensing

equipment. The proposed innovation can also

enable a revolutionary evolution in the way passive

components are integrated with active components

in modern day electronic products. The effort may

also provide the foundation for the anticipated era

of molecular nanoelectronics and nanotechnologies.
