Smoltek technology opportunities 

Smoltek has developed an extensive IP portfolio with more than 100 patents granted and pending. Our innovative nanotechnology can be used in almost any technological platforms and/or applications where today's materials no longer are up for the task.

 

Together with a significant body of know-how our technology platform offers a huge variation of business opportunities.

How we do it

 

The patented and patent pending technology platform enables growth of carbon nanostructures on a CMOS compatible industrial platform at industry-compatible temperatures. The R&D is focused on engineering combinations of material stacks that enable the growth of carbon nanostructures on different substrates with the freedom to tailor the positioning and properties of the grown nanostructures. 

This is completely new and revolutionizing way to manufacture high performance, solid state capacitors with extreme form factor has been developed as a technology platform. This technology works for discrete component capacitors as well as for in-circuit directly integrated capacitors. 

Solutions for the semiconductor industry

In the pursuit of miniaturization in the semiconductor industry Smoltek has developed a number of concepts and prototypes aimed for advanced packaging and heterogenous integration that will provide higher performance with a lower profile and a significantly reduced footprint.

CNF-MIM – Capacitor technology platform 

Smoltek's CNF-MIM capacitor technology is a revolutionizing way of making high performance capacitors with an extremely small footprint and a very thin profile. 

The CNF-MIM capacitor technology platform enables production of several different types of capacitor components, including discrete passives, embedded capacitors and capacitors directly integrated on the chip. All done in a CMOS-compatible process.

Smoltek Tiger™ is an assembly platform concept for advanced packaging and heterogenous integration that consists of integrated capacitors, interconnects and interposers that are incapsulated by an thermal heat dissipation film.

CNF-MIM – integrated capacitors 

Smoltek's CNF-MIM capacitor technology is a revolutionizing way of making high performance capacitors with an extremely small footprint and a very thin profile. 

SmolINCO – Component Integration Interconnects

The SmolINCO™ concept improves the overall performance and reliability of existing Cu-based microbump technology and smoothens the scaling path down to ~5μm pitch, and beyond that solder free thermal compression bonding.

SmolINPO – Interposers concept

SmolINPO™ is our interposer concept based on super conductive nanostructures. It facilitates ultra-fine pitch integration of multi-die SiP (System-in-Package) components as well as with integrated solid-state mini-supercapacitors for multiple functions. 

SmolTIM – Thermal enhancement materials

SmolTIM™ is Smoltek’s heat dissipation concept that facilitates higher performance and sustained lifetime for RF and Power Electronics components.
