New Smoltek patent granted

Smoltek keep grow­ing its pro­pri­etary tech­nol­o­gy plat­form. In the begin­ning of May 2020 patent No. 58 was grant­ed. The patent is con­nect­ed to our helplay­er family.

The company’s third grant­ed patent in 2020 is a Euro­pean (EPO) patent. It is an inven­tion that relates to how to grow nanos­truc­tures on sub­strate with­out destroy­ing the under­ly­ing mate­ri­als for exam­ple CMOS cir­cuit ele­ments, sen­sors etc., which may be sen­si­tive to such a growth process. 

The patent cov­ers an essen­tial aspect of method of pro­duc­ing nanos­truc­tures on a sub­strate where the sur­face con­sti­tutes both con­duc­ing and non-con­duct­ing struc­tures and devices out of the same.“This new patent cov­ers essen­tial aspects of a pro­duc­tion method that enables growth of nanos­truc­tures on any giv­en sur­face includ­ing pres­ence of sen­si­tive cir­cuit ele­ments under­neath. The beau­ty of the tech­nol­o­gy lies in its sim­plic­i­ty. It is easy to imple­ment in, and com­pat­i­ble with vol­ume pro­duc­tion set-ups. The new patent adds to our growth-relat­ed part of our patent port­fo­lio, and pro­vides addi­tion­al pro­tec­tion of our key tech­nol­o­gy.”, says Shafiq Kabir, CIO at Smoltek.
