Title: Development of discrete components. Final report

Abstract

Allied-Signal Inc, Kansas City Division, was provided with funding to maintain the capability to procure discrete components for various applications. A development project was undertaken to procure transistor die from one supplier for assembly into finished components by a different supplier. These components would be SA-equivalent with appropriate preconditioning, testing, and certification, The methodologies developed herein go far to ensure the future availability of discrete components.

  • This project was designed to study the effectiveness of industrial computed tomography (CT) and digital radiography (DR) as inspection techniques for the evaluation of materials and structural components manufactured on-line. The results indicate that computed tomography is an appropriate technique if speed and cost are not critical considerations. Digital radiography is the faster technique, but provides less information about the material. Limited view tomography (LVT), which is a simplified form of computed tomography, was compared and found to provide a good compromise between computed tomography and digital radiography when a priori knowledge of material structure is available. For some materialmore » configurations, it provides virtually complete computed tomography data in a fraction of the time required for full view computed tomography data collection and reconstruction. It offers the greatest potential for the productive cross-sectional characterization of composite materials.

  • The development of passive components for electronic circuits for geothermal well-logging tools is discussed; this involves resistors, capacitors, metallization and passivation. The basic technology is the chemical vapor deposition (CVD) of metal interconnections, resistor material, dielectric material and passivating material. The investigation in this project is directed toward tungsten metallization, tungsten-silicon resistors, and capacitors with silicon nitride dielectric and passivation. Since CVD can be done at temperatures in the range 500/sup 0/C to 1200/sup 0/C, the resulting components are capable of operating at least at short and medium term temperatures, and possibly at long term temperatures. The devices are depositedmore » on their own substrate, either sapphire or oxidized silicon.« less
  • Both resistors and capacitors have been successful fabricated. The parameter ranges which can be obtained are summarized. The complete process sequence is given for resistors, for capacitors, and for integration of resistors and capacitors. Contact deposition and delineation for all processes is described.
  • The implementation of a program of spectral observations of solar radiation on a horizontal surface at ground level has been accomplished to 80% of the expected target. A set of 8 spectral pyranometers associated with a data logging integrator system has been built, and a method has been developed for the absolute calibration of spectral radiometers for measuring spectral data. Observations of the spectral distribution between 300 nm and 100 nm of the total and diffuse radiation have been carried out as often as possible for some typical sky conditions. Four appendices are included.
  • Final development work on fluid amplifiers is discussed. A pneumatic servo valve having no moving parts, a special amplifier for high temperature use, and other efforts in connection with this device are described. Capabilities of the fluid amplifier as a high-reliability servo valve are discussed. (auth)
