( センサーの商業化 )

Presenters:

Steven Walsh

Dr. Juan Figueroa, Puerto Rico Science and Technology Trust

The objective of the Micro, Nano and Emerging Technology Commercialization Education Foundation (MANCEF) is to provide product developers with pragmatic, detailed and actionable information needed to be addressed in the design, development, manufacturing and test process to bring a product to the market with the focus on sensors and where possible, on the medical application of these devices/systems. This tutorial will present the latest approaches to overcoming the barriers to commercialization through effective design, engineering and manufacturing scalability. In addition to the presentations, this tutorial will feature a panel discussion to address key case study successes and failures and what innovative startup companies are doing to achieve success in sensors development.

Presentations will include:

Roadmapping for Commercial Success

Steven Walsh

Technological Roadmapping was the first tool used to place technology in the strategy of a firm.  Today there are at least three generations of Roadmaps.  The first generation assists firms with known manufacturing technologies, units, dimensions and end projects.  This traditional roadmapping technique has been used in the high-tech semiconductor world where this rapidly advancing technology has been using planar processing, microlithography, device integration and known products like memory, microcontrollers and smart power devices for decades.  Second generation roadmaps were developed to assist firms in manufacturing realms where no single manufacturing technology was yet dominant.  In this case, few industry standard products exist and even manufacturing measurables like line width and unit cells might be application specific.  This was and in some application areas still is the case for MEMS and Nano Technology products. These techniques were used in the first MEMS and Top Down Nano Roadmaps of the late 1990’s and early 2000’s.  Third generation roadmaps were designed for multiple root technologies-based products.  Here there is not a simple “Moore’s Law” for semiconductor micro manufacturing and new technology product boundaries.  Techniques here include developing a sigmoidal curve that will approximate the use of concepts such as TRLs (Technology Readiness Levels), MRLs (Manufacturing Readiness Levels) and new boundaries like the “Proactive Principal.”  These techniques find utility in Medical applications and other industries.  Here we will take time to discuss how to use the relatively well-known roadmapping tools to enable maximum value for a given application.

SBIR as a Source of Equity-Free Investments in Innovative Sensor Applications

Dr. Juan Figueroa, Puerto Rico Science and Technology Trust

The Small Business Innovation Research/Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR/STTR) program’s mission is to support scientific excellence and technological innovation through the investment of Federal research funds in critical American priorities to build a strong national economy. It is a federal government equity-free investment program where small businesses receive financial support, $100K to $250K, to determine the innovative technology proposed solution commercial viability, Phase I, followed by another round of investment for the development of a commercial prototype. This second round of investment, Phase II, ranges from ~$600K to $1M for two years; amounts vary according to the agency. To qualify for these funds the small businesses must have less than 500 employees, must be >51% US-owned by individuals and individually operated OR at least 51% owned and controlled by another for-profit business concern that is at least 51% owned and controlled by one or more individuals; all work must be performed in the US. The USA government stimulates private investments by absorbing the technical risks of new innovative technologies resulting from academic research and individual/organizations ingenuity. The SBIR (SBIR/STTR) provides an excellent vehicle to the sensors innovative community to develop new and commercially viable applications by reducing private investments risks. As new and challenging applications emerge for sensors it is important that human and financial capital risks be reduced to address market needs while creating jobs and wealth; SBIR provides the right vehicle to make this happen.

The Process to Commercialize a Medical Device for Scale, Quality, Performance and Profit

David DiPaola, Managing Director, DiPaola Consulting

It is often mistaken that the commercialization process begins with a design, a lab prototype and experimental testing.  So often entrepreneurs and companies come with design, prototype and validation in hand without a customer or an understanding of their needs, consideration for manufacturing and quality nor any evaluation of a supply base.  This presentation challenges this thinking and presents an alternative process that starts with an idea accompanied by the end customer’s specifications, a thorough review of the method for manufacturing, definition of a quality plan and an understanding of your validation requirements at the component and device level.  There should also be a consideration of your potential supply base and their capabilities.  Furthermore, a plan should be developed for the path through the FDA approval process.  Once this is complete, an iterative design is developed with a constant reassessment of performance, manufacturing, quality, validation and FDA approval.  During the design phase, a core building block of technology should be developed such that it can be easily replicated in derivative products keeping as much of the design as possible the same (usually only the customer interfaces changing).  This enables high volume production of identical components and features lowering cost. The resulting prototype is then closely representative of a production device that can then be fine-tuned through 2-3 design validations off tools capable of low volume production.  Also in the design phase, testing is completed to understand the ranges in performance and failure as it relates to expected capability in materials, dimensions, manufacturing and environmental exposure.  Scaling is then accomplished by adding capacity through tool replication and automation that is validated in the pilot phase with limited fine tuning.  This process will be demonstrated through two case studies.

Tutorial 6: Analytics at the Edge
( エッジデバイスで稼働する分析機能 )

Presenters:

David Goldstein, President & CEO, AssetLink Global LLC

The global technology landscape is volatile, shifting, and fast-moving. And when it comes to wireless connectivity, it seems like every day new, innovative technologies are being developed to improve the connections between people, systems, and things. The explosion in the number of connected equipment and wearables means more touch-points to monitor, manage, and monetize. With billions of new IoT edge devices projected to come online over the next decade, next-gen multi-band wireless standards are sure to surface that provide the throughput and capacity needed to manage the data needs on a massive and global scale. The ability to bake wireless “scalability”, “future-proofing”, and “sustainability” into the IoT solution will be increasingly difficult. This tutorial will discuss strategies to improve timely access to large volumes of data, to improve actionable intelligence and predictive analytics.
