Smaller Eyes for UAVs
Smaller Eyes for UAVs

The Office of Naval Research has put out the word that it wants industry to develop more compact electro-optical infrared (EO-IR) focal plane array sensors for unmanned vehicles. One goal of the Image Optimization for Small Focal Plane Arrays program is to bend the cost curve for surveillance technology down in the coming years. Currently, development of large arrays for wide-area surveillance is pushing the curve upwards. In addition to the cost-control aims, the program is intended to spur the development of image processing techniques that can achieve useful results from small-format sensors.

High Barometric Pressure NDIR CO2 Sensor
Prime Technology
 

Prime Technology's new Non-Dispersive Infrared (NDIR) CO2 sensor is solid state based, requires no sensing element replacement due to aging, and is easily calibrated on site. The device has been specifically designed to operate in high barometric pressure environments including submarines, hyperbaric chambers, dive chambers, ROVs/AUVs, and many more custom applications.

Designing With FPGAs for the Rough Stuff

Designing With FPGAs for the Rough Stuff An FPGA, once all the design work is done and the die is suitable, can be hermetically packaged and tested to military temperature range and beyond, for applications requiring these characteristics. But what about the design itself? A white paper (registration required) issued by Synopsis, Inc., discusses the various classifications and levels of reliability encountered in military/aerospace, automotive, medical electronic devices, and other applications, and how to match the reliability of FPGA designs to these requirements.

FPGAs for the Final Frontier

FPGAs for the Final Frontier Electronic systems that travel to and through outer space are subject to significant doses of ionizing radiation that have the potential to disrupt the functioning of microcircuits. Radiation-induced failure modes in logic circuits include single-event upset (SEU) and single-event latch-up (SEL). Radiation hardening, while expensive, is necessary, and can be accomplished through processing, packaging, device design or a combination. Xilinx has added rad-hard versions to its line of Virtex®-5QV FPGAs, claimed to be 1,000 time more immune to SEU failures than the commercial version.

Inverters for Medical Diagnostic Gear

Inverters for Medical Diagnostic Gear New vacuum-encapsulated inverters from Endicott Research Group Inc. are designed for driving cold-cathode fluorescent lamps used as backlights for LCD screens in medical diagnostic equipment. The encapsulation method makes the high-reliability devices resistant to shock, vibration, and humidity. Self-shielded magnetics keep RFI/EMI low.

MESFET MMIC Mixer

MESFET MMIC Mixer A triple-balanced passive mixer from Hittite Microwave Corp. requires no DC bias and no external components for matching. The device, based on gallium arsenide MESFET technology and available as a bare die, is intended for up or down frequency conversion in microwave & millimeter-wave radios, military sensors, and test and measurement applications operating from 26 to 32 GHz.

Rad-Hard DC-DC Converters on SMDs

Rad-Hard DC-DC Converters on SMDs More than 150 radiation-hardened versions of DC-DC converters from VPT Inc. have been issued Standard Microcircuit Drawings (SMDs) by the Defense Logistics Agency. The devices are all manufactured to MIL-PRF-38534 Class K and are suitable for use in systems in low-Earth orbit, geosynchronous Earth orbit, and deep space missions. The devices comprise four series of VPT’s single- and dual-output converters.
