The EDAPS symposium consists of technical paper presentation, poster sessions, industry exhibits, workshops and tutorials. Designers, engineers and researchers across the world come forth to share and discuss their work on all aspects of electrical signal integrity including modeling, design and simulation, fabrication, characterization and packaging.
At the conference, Vincent Desmaris, CTO of Smoltek, presented the Smoltek paper: “Ultra Thin Capacitors based on Carbon nanofibers with Ultra High Capacitance Density,” in which he said:
“We are taking the opportunity to present the latest achievements of our CNF-MIM technology, emphasizing our latest technological development. The CNF-MIM electrical data now feature 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.”
At the closing ceremony of the conference Vincent’s presentation was awarded ‘Best Oral Paper’-presentation. However, by then the Smoltek team had already left the conference for business meetings in Taiwan. In fact, it wasn’t until yesterday, when Vincent received an e‑mail from the EDAPS 2019 secretariat informing him on the award, that we became aware of the achievement.
Still, late news can be good news.
