Smoltek patent No. 65 now granted

Smoltek has yet anoth­er patent grant­ed. This time in the US. The patent is relat­ed to the Assem­bly plat­form patent fam­i­ly in the direc­tion of inter­con­nects. This also makes our patent port­fo­lio to now com­prise 65 grant­ed patents.

Smoltek’s 65th patent has been grant­ed in the US and relates to the Assem­bly plat­form fam­i­ly, and this par­tic­u­lar appli­ca­tion is in the field of inter­con­nects and het­ero­ge­neous integrations.

Our Assem­bly plat­form patent fam­i­ly is a path­way to tap into the ever-increas­ing demand for minia­tur­iza­tion of elec­tron­ic com­po­nents and inter­con­nect them in the form of an assem­bly to min­i­mize foot­print at the pack­ag­ing level.

“Through this patent grant, we are again show­cas­ing both our tech­ni­cal and inno­v­a­tive capa­bil­i­ties of exploit­ing our plat­form tech­nol­o­gy towards the future”, says Dr Shafiq Kabir, Founder and Chief Inno­va­tion Offi­cer at Smoltek.

In the con­text of Assem­bly plat­form and inter­con­nects, the present appli­ca­tions con­cepts take advan­tage of the wet­ta­bil­i­ty prop­er­ties of nanos­truc­tures to form small sized com­pos­ite inter­con­nect bumps togeth­er with tra­di­tion­al solder/​metal mate­ri­als. Such com­pos­ite inter­con­nects pro­vide a means to improve the elec­tri­cal reli­a­bil­i­ty of the solder/​metal bumps since car­bon nanos­truc­tures are inher­ent­ly capa­ble of car­ry­ing high cur­rent at a much small­er footprint.

Smoltek’s patent port­fo­lio now glob­al­ly com­pris­es 65 grant­ed patents. Read more about our IP and patents.
