Boston Micromachines Wins Contracts

Photonics Spectra
Aug 2011
Boston Micromachines Corp. of Cambridge, Mass., has been awarded $1.2 million in contracts for space imaging research by NASA’s Small Business Innovation Research program. In the first of two projects, the company will develop compact, ultralow-power, high-voltage multiplexed drive electronics suitable for integration within its deformable mirrors in space-based wavefront control applications. It will scale up the driver circuit that it developed previously for NASA. In the second project, it will design and fabricate a MEMS micromirror array consisting of 1021 ultraflat, closely packed hexagonal mirror elements. It will use manufacturing processes and micromirror optoelectromechanical designs that were demonstrated in previous NASA-funded efforts.
