Compact Energy Storage Interposer

The inven­tion: An inter­pos­er device com­pris­ing a first con­duc­tor pat­tern on a first side defin­ing a por­tion of the inter­pos­er device to be cov­ered by a first elec­tri­cal cir­cuit ele­ment; and a sec­ond con­duc­tor pat­tern on a sec­ond side to be con­nect­ed to a sec­ond elec­tri­cal cir­cuit ele­ment. The sec­ond con­duc­tor pat­tern is elec­tri­cal­ly cou­pled to the first con­duc­tor pat­tern. The inter­pos­er device fur­ther com­pris­es a plu­ral­i­ty of nanos­truc­ture ener­gy stor­age devices arranged with­in the por­tion of the inter­pos­er device to be cov­ered by the first elec­tri­cal cir­cuit ele­ment. Each of the nanos­truc­ture ener­gy stor­age devices com­pris­es at least a first plu­ral­i­ty of con­duc­tive nanos­truc­tures; a con­duc­tion con­trol­ling mate­r­i­al embed­ding the nanos­truc­tures; a first elec­trode con­nect­ed to each nanos­truc­ture in the first plu­ral­i­ty of nanos­truc­tures; and a sec­ond elec­trode sep­a­rat­ed from each nanos­truc­ture in the first plu­ral­i­ty of nanos­truc­tures by the con­duc­tion con­trol­ling material.

Miniaturized capacitors with carbon nanofibers

Smoltek has devel­oped the world’s thinnest dis­crete capac­i­tor. Its total build­ing height is less than thir­ty microm­e­ters (30 µm). You have to stack ten of them on top of each oth­er to reach the same height as today’s indus­try-stan­dard when it comes to sur­face-mount­ed capac­i­tors. The capac­i­tor itself, with­out encap­su­la­tion, is a mere 0.5 to 10 µm. It...
