Nano Sensing Technology
Whether observing distant space or biological science, nano technologies are leading the way for making great progress in these areas. A common problem that exists in all these fields are knowing the exact position you are observing. The accuracy of positioning an object in the cartesian coordinate system is only as good as the sensor technology that tells you where you are.

NanoWave Inc. an MIT based startup, has made an impressive breakthrough with new position encoder technology in this area. Their SPPE-1000 system attains 7.6 pico meter precision and is based on a reflective diffraction position encoder and patented FPGA technology. Developed in part through collaboration with Nikon Corp. in Japan, it incorporates numerous new technologies such as a MEMS laser scanning mirror, a Super Luminescent Diode (SLD) light source, and an optical fiber guided light source in a compact and low cost package. The SPPE-1000 offers many advantages over other encoder technologies. More...

 

Security

The Federal Information Processing Standard ( FIPS) approved the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) in the summer of 2001 and since then it has quickly become the encryption technology standard for the internet, wireless communications, and many other areas that require security.

Stargate Semiconductor offers a family of CipherTime® encryption cores that can be targeted to FPGA or ASIC technologies. These cores accelerate both AES encryption and decryption. As with many computationally intensive algorithms such as encryption, they are usually implemented in software and run on fast DSP's or RISC processors. These solutions work fine in most cases but the demand for speed from our internet and data networks continues to rise, making it increasingly more difficult to maintain wire speeds using these methods.

Product Design
With ordering lead times for electronic parts becoming increasingly longer, careful attention must be paid to which parts to use in a design. Before a project is complete, you may discover you already have designed in parts that have become obsolete. Many companies are now build-to-order for parts they produce. Even the "Stocking Distributors" are letting their stock run dry. A minimum order buy is usually required to fire up the assembly line.

This dilemma is due to the fact that many manufacturing and servicing processes are geared and designed for volume production. Making only a couple would yield much time and waste adding up to cost which is passed on to the buyer. Stargate can provide vision to our customers who are developing hi-tech products and help avoid many of these pitfalls. We can provide expertise from concept to the shipping dock. Along this path we can also help make critical cost trade-off and build-or-buy decisions for hardware, software, manufacturing, and testing development. We have a wide variety of engineering experience needed for all phases of developing a product in both consumer and industrial markets. More...
