Smoltek patent No. 72 now granted

Smoltek is award­ed a new patent. This new patent has been grant­ed in Tai­wan, and is relat­ing to the patent fam­i­ly in the direc­tion of CNF-MIM capac­i­tor appli­ca­tions on inter­posers. This also brings our patent port­fo­lio to now com­prise 72 grant­ed patents.

The patent, recent­ly grant­ed in Tai­wan, belongs to a patent fam­i­ly that cov­ers the company’s CNF-MIM capac­i­tors tech­nol­o­gy and var­i­ous use cas­es for the same, pri­mar­i­ly in the field of inter­posers for advanced pack­ag­ing and het­eroge­nous inte­gra­tion of semiconductors.

The inven­tion as such facil­i­tates inte­gra­tion of extreme­ly thin sol­id-state devices, such as CNF-MIM capac­i­tors, where the main advan­tage is that the ener­gy stor­ing devices can be placed clos­er to the inter­con­nec­tion points and pow­er rails of the active chip, thus enabling more effi­cient pow­er man­age­ment solu­tions for the whole circuit.

Minia­tur­ized or com­pact ener­gy stor­age devices, e.g. capac­i­tors, are in high demand in the field of today’s advanced pack­ag­ing archi­tec­tures for inte­grat­ed cir­cuits, for exam­ple com­mon­ly used for micro­proces­sors and oth­er het­ero­ge­neous­ly inte­grat­ed semiconductors.

Smoltek’s patent pro­tect­ed tech­nol­o­gy around inter­posers are built on the need to improve cir­cuit per­for­mance by enabling smarter, com­pact ener­gy stor­age devices which in turn can enable more effi­cient pow­er man­age­ment solutions.

Smoltek’s patent port­fo­lio now glob­al­ly com­pris­es 72 grant­ed patents. Read more about our IP and patents.
