Smoltek patent No. 57 now granted

Smoltek keep grow­ing its pro­pri­etary tech­nol­o­gy plat­form. In March 2020 the 57th patent was grant­ed. This is a Pan-Euro­pean patent which cov­ers inter­con­nects applications.

This is the sec­ond grant­ed patent in 2020 and as it is a Euro­pean (EPO) patent that will be val­i­dat­ed in rel­e­vant Euro­pean countries.

The actu­al inven­tion is a bond­ing film that uti­lizes con­duc­tive nanos­truc­tures, and there­by pro­vide prop­er­ties that enable fur­ther minia­tur­iza­tion of semi­con­duc­tor assemblies.

“The patent cov­ers essen­tial aspects of a bond­ing film com­pris­ing nanos­truc­tures that enables con­nec­tion between two adja­cent semi­con­duc­tor chips/​components for both mechan­i­cal and elec­tri­cal pur­pos­es. Such imple­men­ta­tion brings sub­stan­tial ben­e­fits in  advanced pack­ag­ing of semi­con­duc­tor com­po­nents, with poten­tial to replace todays thick and bulky bond­ing films,” says Shafiq Kabir, CIO at Smoltek.

Smoltek’s patent port­fo­lio now glob­al­ly com­pris­es 57 grant­ed patents. Read more about our IP and patents.
