Smoltek patent No. 71 now granted

Smoltek is award­ed a new patent in Korea. This patent is the fourth one of the patent fam­i­ly in the direc­tion of CNF-MIM based com­pact ener­gy stor­age on inter­posers. This also means that our glob­al patent port­fo­lio now com­pris­es 71 grant­ed patents.

Smoltek’s 71st patent has been grant­ed in Korea and is cov­er­ing the inven­tion and man­u­fac­tur­ing of extreme­ly thin ener­gy stor­age devices embed­ded in an inter­pos­er. Our ener­gy stor­age device con­cepts may take many forms e.g. dis­crete, inte­grat­ed, or it can take the form where the end result is an inter­pos­er with CNF-MIM capac­i­tors embed­ded in it.

“This is the fourth grant­ed patent from our sec­ond wave of patent fil­ings that pro­tect our CNF-MIM capac­i­tor tech­nol­o­gy and var­i­ous use cas­es for the same, pri­mar­i­ly in the area of semi­con­duc­tors and elec­tron­ics”, says Karl Lun­dahl, VP Prod­uct Man­age­ment and Indus­tri­al­iza­tion at Smoltek.

Smoltek’s inven­tions in the area of semi­con­duc­tors and elec­tron­ics facil­i­tate inte­gra­tion of extreme­ly low-pro­file sol­id state ener­gy stor­age devices, such as CNF-MIM capac­i­tors, clos­er to the con­nec­tion points and pow­er rails of the active chips. The CNF-MIM-tech­nol­o­gy offers the small­est form-fac­tor for inte­grat­ed high-per­for­mance capac­i­tors by pro­vid­ing very high capac­i­tance per area at a frag­ment of height com­pared with today’s technologies.

Inter­posers are fre­quent­ly used in today’s advanced pack­ag­ing archi­tec­tures for inte­grat­ed cir­cuits,. The present patent­ed con­cepts are built on the need to improve cir­cuit per­for­mance by enabling a com­pact ener­gy stor­age to be fab­ri­cat­ed and embed­ded into an inter­pos­er substrate.

Smoltek’s patent port­fo­lio now glob­al­ly com­pris­es 71 grant­ed patents.
