SBIR Phase II Grant awarded to Sporian: Self-Assembly of Reliable Three Dimensional Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems

June 1, 2001 - BOULDER, COLORADO

The National Science Foundation announced today that Sporian Microsystems, Inc. has won the Phase II, Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Grant (SBIR). The solicitation is titled: Novel Joining Method for Self-Assembly of Reliable Three Dimensional Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems.

The award will build upon the successful Phase I results that demonstrated the use of solder to self-assemble two-dimensional surface micro-machined Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) into useful three-dimensional structures. This concept is an next important step in the evolution of MEMS assembly. The overall objective of Phase II is to move the technology from the lab environment to a commercial production process that is well understood and has excellent yield. Research personnel from industry and education are involved and state-of-the-art equipment will be utilized. A number of promising commercial applications have been identified and discussions with potential commercial partners suggest interest in commercializing this technology.

The National Science Foundation funds research in various areas of science and engineering through grants, contracts, and cooperative agreements. The SBIR program recognizes and awards small companies that have registered notable achievements through research and development with the intent to commercialize technologies.

Sporian Microsystems, Inc. is a MEMS research and development company providing solutions based on MEMS technology and electronics packaging expertise.
