Smoltek intends to sign an exclusive agreement with Yageo Group

Smoltek has the intention to sign a global exclusive license and services agreement for discrete and embedded capacitors with YAGEO Group. This would grant YAGEO a global, exclusive right to manufacture and sell capacitor products based on Smoltek's patent protected technology platform for ultra-thin carbon nanofiber capacitors (CNF-MIM).

Smoltek Hydrogen is verifying its technology for high-volume manufacturing

Smoltek Hydrogen has placed an order for the design and engineering of a Prototype Coater for industrial growth of carbon nanostructures. The purpose is to verify that the nanostructures can be grown using the equipment from AGC Plasma Technology Solutions that has been selected for future mass production – a Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD) tool that can be configured for substrates of several square meters.

We enable the next-generation capacitors

Advanced nano- and microelectronics are at the core of tomorrow’s hardware engineering. At Smoltek we are pioneering carbon nanotechnology that enables manufacturing of the next-generation solutions for the semiconductor industry. Currently the focus is on a new type of carbon nanofiber-based capacitor that fits in the extremely miniaturized packaging architectures being developed by chip manufacturers.

8‑inch format process for capacitors

Smoltek Semi has developed a process for manufacturing of engineering samples in high volumes. This process will now be tested for production of CNF-MIM engineering samples in high volumes, as the first trial-run of capacitor prototypes (without the patent protected carbon nanofibers) was successful.
