Interposer

The inven­tion: An inter­pos­er device com­pris­ing an inter­pos­er sub­strate; a plu­ral­i­ty of con­duct­ing vias extend­ing through the inter­pos­er sub­strate; a con­duc­tor pat­tern on the inter­pos­er sub­strate, and a nanos­truc­ture ener­gy stor­age device. The nanos­truc­ture ener­gy stor­age device com­pris­es at least a first plu­ral­i­ty of con­duc­tive nanos­truc­tures formed on the inter­pos­er sub­strate; a con­duc­tion con­trol­ling mate­r­i­al embed­ding each nanos­truc­ture in the first plu­ral­i­ty of con­duc­tive 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, where­in the first elec­trode and the sec­ond elec­trode are con­fig­ured to allow elec­tri­cal con­nec­tion of the nanos­truc­ture ener­gy stor­age device to the inte­grat­ed circuit.
