Smoltek presents new improved electrical data for CNF-MIM

Smoltek has pre­sent­ed new and improved elec­tri­cal data for CNF-MIM at EDAPS in Tai­wan. The focal point has been on low­er­ing the ESR val­ue that we pre­sent­ed in September.

Today Tues­day, Decem­ber 17, Smoltek has pre­sent­ed the lat­est advances of the CNF-MIM tech­nol­o­gy con­cept. Now we can show a sig­nif­i­cant improve­ment of the ESR para­me­ter since SEMICON Tai­wan in September.

“We are tak­ing the oppor­tu­ni­ty to present our CNF-MIM at EDAPS 2019, empha­siz­ing our lat­est tech­no­log­i­cal devel­op­ment. Our CNF-MIM now fea­tures an equiv­a­lent series resis­tance (ESR) of about 40 mΩ, which rep­re­sents more than a twofold improve­ment com­pared to data released at SEMICON Tai­wan 2019. This tech­no­log­i­cal step also put us on a par with the oth­er com­pet­ing tech­nolo­gies when it comes to elec­tri­cal data but at a frac­tion of their vol­ume.”, says Vin­cent Des­maris, CTO at Smoltek.

The offi­cial name of the con­fer­ence is “2019 IEEE Elec­tri­cal Design of Advanced Pack­ag­ing and Sys­tems Sym­po­sium (EDAPS)”. It is an annu­al flag­ship event in the Asia-Pacif­ic region and has con­sis­tent­ly served as a plat­form for dis­sem­mi­na­tion of lat­est research in the areas of elec­tri­cal design of chip, pack­age and system.

Miniaturized capacitors with carbon nanofibers

Smoltek has devel­oped the world’s thinnest dis­crete capac­i­tor. Its total build­ing height is less than thir­ty microm­e­ters (30 µm). You have to stack ten of them on top of each oth­er to reach the same height as today’s indus­try-stan­dard when it comes to sur­face-mount­ed capac­i­tors. The capac­i­tor itself, with­out encap­su­la­tion, is a mere 0.5 to 10 µm. It...
