DMEA Transfers to DDR&E
The Honorable Ken Krieg USD (AT&L) has transferred the Defense Microelectronics
Activity to the Director, Defense Research and Engineering. This transfer acknowledges
the increased significance of microelectronics technology to the DoD which has led
to a broadened demand for DMEA’s unique technical and engineering capabilities
in microelectronics and emerging technologies. DMEA’s distinctive resources
are being utilized to meet DoD’s requirements across the entire spectrum of
technology development, acquisition, and long term support. In meeting those needs,
DMEA’s unique services are requested throughout the DoD, other Government
Agencies, Industry, and Allied nations.

Provides a quantitative method of predicting the lifetime of COTS IC's when used
in other than commercial applications--especially when used in military applications.
Forecasting Failure: By Determining
Chip Quality at the Nanoscopic Level, DMEA may Avert Disaster.
Wouldn't it be great if a microchip could be analyzed for reliability without all
the messy, lengthy field testing? Maybe, thanks to research being done at DMEA,
Cool in a Box: COTS goes
rugged quickly with help from DMEA partnership.
How do you get a lot of heat out of a chip?
How can it be done efficiently and inexpensively?
The Department of Defense is asking these questions as it looks for ways to use
advanced Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) technology in harsh military environments
without waiting for traditional re-engineering or risking failure of over-heated,
damaged computer-based systems.
