The announced project within the framework of Vinnova’s program “Smarter electronic systems” has been completed according to plan. Smoltek will now continue the work to achieve integration of CNF-MIM capacitors on 200 and 300 mm wafers.
Smoltek has developed the world’s thinnest capacitor. The company is now demonstrating practically what it has previously claimed by producing a prototype of a CNF-MIM capacitor with a total height of just under 40 micrometers.
Smoltek attended the virtual IMAPS 2020 symposium in October last year. In this virtual format of the 53rd International Microelectronics Assembly and Packaging Society symposium our technical paper was selected ‘Best of Session Paper’.
Smoltek announces that the agreement signed with a leading capacitor manufacturer for technical and commercial evaluation of the company’s CNF-MIM technology has been further extended, to December 31. At the same time, the parties have initiated a concrete dialogue on a possible continuation of the collaboration, with a decision to be expected during the first quarter of 2021.
Shafiq Kabir is the founder and CIO of Smoltek. Since the start of the company his thirst for knowledge and innovation has transformed into a IP strategy that the Smoltek business model now is based upon. A strategy that has evolved as the company has grown.
Smoltek has yet another patent granted. This time in the US. The patent is related to the Assembly platform patent family in the direction of interconnects. This also makes our patent portfolio to now comprise 65 granted patents.
Smoltek announces that the agreement signed with a global manufacturer of electronic components for technical and commercial evaluation of the company’s CNF-MIM technology will be extended until the end of March 2021. In addition to further evaluation, the parties will also discuss the way forward after the evaluation, including a potential broadening of the collaboration.
Smoltek’s IP footprint relating to interposers keeps growing. This new Taiwanese patent is covering energy storage devices embedded in an interposer, and the usage of the same. Our patent portfolio now comprises 64 granted patents.
Smoltek is involved in developing Swedish cutting-edge expertise in smarter electronics systems – a Vinnova innovation program backed by the Swedish Energy Agency and Formas.
Smoltek has yet another patent granted. This time in India. The patent is related to the growth process of nanostructures and it makes the Catalyst diffusion patent family complete.
Smoltek announces that the company’s founder and Chief Innovation Officer (CIO) Shafiq Kabir will leave the CIO position on January 22, 2021 to instead take on a role as a senior advisor and active shareholder in the company.
In 2020 Smoltek signed two licensing agreements for evaluation of the CNF-MIM technology. These are the first steps towards commercialization of the revolutionizing capacitor concept. But there are still some hurdles to jump.
Smoltek’s IP related to interposer technology keeps growing. This new US patent is covering energy storage devices embedded in an interposer, and manufacturing of the same. Our patent portfolio now comprises 62 granted patents.
On October 1st Ola Tiverman takes on a new role as President of the wholly owned subsidiary Smoltek Semi AB, a business unit entirely focused on licensing technology concepts to the semiconductor and electronics industry. Olas new title: CRO & President Smoltek Semi.
The constantly expanding Smoltek IP-portfolio is divided into several different patent families. One of them is named Helplayer, a method to protect the underlaying materials when growing nanostructures on a given surface. To this family we can add another patent number recently granted.
Smoltek announces that the agreement signed in the spring with a leading capacitor manufacturer for technical and commercial evaluation of the company’s CNF-MIM technology will be extended until the end of October.
Watch Françoise von Trapp (3D InCites) interview with CRO & COO, Ola Tiverman from this year’s virtual SEMICON West.
Smoltek’s proprietary platform keeps growing as we have been awarded another approved patent. This new US patent covers energy storage devices and the usage of the same. Our patent portfolio now comprises 60 granted patents.
At the virtual IEEE NANO 2020 conference in Montreal, Canada Smoltek presented that the CNF-MIM capacitor concept isn’t restrained to only silicon substrates.
Research Engineer Qi Li is a new member of the R&D‑team at Smoltek. Qi will be working with the design, manufacturing and characterization of carbon nanostructure-based components.
