Today we have inaugurated the new in-house hydrogen laboratory. In these facilities equipped with advanced instruments and tools the R&D team can carry out performance measurement and long-term tests of electrolyzer cells, and will also be able to manufacture test cells.
Smoltek Hydrogen is attending the 244th ECS Meeting in Gothenburg, Sweden. The event brings together the most active researchers in academia, government, and industry—professionals and students—to engage, discuss, and innovate in the areas of electrochemistry and solid state science and related technologies.
Philip Lessner, EVP & CTO at YAGEO Group explains why he and Yageo sees a lot of potential in Smotek's disruptive carbon nanofiber technology for capacitors and how the CNF-MIM-technology can roll out a wide range of ultra-thin capacitors that fit very well with the new semiconductor segments Yageo is targeting.
Louise Duker, Chief Product Officer at Smoltek, talks about how Smoltek will take the company's technology concept from manufacturing in a laboratory environment to industrial production in a factory - and how the company's product range of ultra-thin capacitors will be developed.
Smoltek Hydrogen has appointed Shafiq Kabir as Head of Volume Processes. Shafiq is the founder of Smoltek and he methodically created the company's technology platform and patent portfolio until January 2021, when he took a break from the nanotechnology industry for pursuing an Executive MBA-program.
In order to enable the extensive electrification and to replace fossil raw materials in industry, large investments are being made globally in the production, distribution and use of completely fossil-free hydrogen, so-called green hydrogen. In Sweden, some attention is certainly directed towards the steel industry's investments, but the huge interest in hydrogen that we see in many other countries has not yet reached this point.
Smoltek has yet another patent granted. This time in China, and it is related to the Assembly platform patent family in the direction of interconnects. This also makes our patent portfolio to now comprise 78 granted patents.
The group company Smoltek Semi will together with, the collaboration partner, Yageo present the first planned joint product technology – ultra-thin decoupling capacitors for mobile phones – at the largest European electronic event next week.
Smoltek is awarded a new patent in Japan. This patent is the sixth one of the patent family in the direction of CNF-MIM based compact energy storage on interposers. This also means that our global patent portfolio now comprises 77 granted patents.
Within the business area Hydrogen, Smoltek develops a high-performance cell material for electrolyzers, where an electrolyzer is the system that uses renewable electricity to split water into oxygen and hydrogen.
Farzan Ghavanini, CTO and Head of R&D at Smoltek, explains the unique advantages of our disruptive carbon nanofiber capacitor technology. How we can make extremely small capacitors with high capacitance density, which is in high demand as the increasing power consumption of micro processors calls for ultrathin decoupling capacitors with Landside mounting.
The group company Smoltek Semi has signed a joint development agreement (JDA) with a subsidiary of the global electronic component company Yageo group to commercialize a silicon based carbon nanofiber discrete capacitor.
The Group company Smoltek Semi has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with a global manufacturer of capacitors for the joint development of Smoltek's ultra-thin CMF-MIM capacitors and, provided that the development goals are achieved, mass production and sales via a 50/50-owned joint venture.
Smoltek’s 75th patent has been granted in Taiwan and is covering the concept and manufacturing of extremely thin energy storage devices embedded in an interposer. The energy storage device concepts can take a large number of forms e.g. discrete, integrated – or it may take the form where the end result is an interposer with CNF-MIM…
Ellinor Ehrnberg, President of Smoltek Innovation, explains the market strategy for our Hydrogen business. She also describes how our disruptive electrolyzer cell material will enable cheaper hydrogen production and/or more powerful electrolyzers for the booming hydrogen sector.
