Smoltek CEO Anders Johansson comments on the first evaluation license agreement, March 2020.
Smoltek has a revolutionizing concept of how to make tiny semiconductor components smaller.
Smoltek is pioneering carbon nanotechnology, which will change the world.
Smoltek – Pioneering Carbon Nanotechnology
Smoltek is a global provider of Intellectual Property for process technology and concepts based on carbon nanotechnology, primarily providing applications for the semiconductor industry. The main focus is applications within the segment for advanced circuit packaging and heterogeneous integration.
Smoltek's technology concepts are based on a patented core technology which enables catalytic growth of vertically aligned conductive carbon nanostructures that can be grown in precisely defined patterns – in other words, carbon fibers of the thickness of approx. 1/1000 of human hair can be manufactured, and exactly located, on the surface of a suitable material. This technology constitutes the platform for the company's patented technology applications, such as CNF-MIM – a concept for ultra-thin capacitor elements for use in integrated circuits.
Smoltek offers the market access to this technology by licensing of its Intellectual Property – patents and know-how – supported by technology transfer and long-term relations. The company protects its unique technology through an extensive and growing patent portfolio consisting of some 100 patent filings, of which 62 are currently granted patents.
Smoltek is listed on Spotlight Stock Market in Stockholm, Sweden, under the short name SMOL.
In December 2005 Shafiq Kabir establish "Shafiq's Molecular Technological Company" (SMOLTEK). First patent is filed – basic patent on how to grow nanostructures.
2009 Patent platform secured. Development projects are outlined.
2011 Succeeds with growth of carbon nanofibers below 390° C. This fact, together with the materials used, means that the growth process is now proven to be CMOS-compatible.
2015 Integration of the first carbon nanofiber-based capacitor prototype. The foundation for CNF-MIM technology takes shape.
2017 The semiconductor industry confirms interest in Smoltek based on the technological successes of the revolutionizing capacitor technology, which means that miniaturization of chips can be achieved with retained and even better performance.
2018 Proves industrially attractive capacitance density performance for the CNF-MIM technology.
2019 Tremendous progress with the CNF-MIM technology: Demonstration of a capacitance density of over 650 nanoFarad per square millimeter, the equivalent series resistance (ESR) is reduced to below 40 mOhms. The CNF-MIM technology now demonstrates the same performance as today’s technology solutions, at just a fraction of the device height.
2020 First evaluation license agreement for the CNF-MIM technology is signed with a globally leading capacitor manufacturer. A second similar license is signed shortly thereafter with a world-leading passive device manufacturer.
