Farzan Ghavanini, CTO and Head of R&D at Smoltek, explains the unique advantages of our disruptive carbon nanofiber capacitor technology. How we can make extremely small capacitors with high capacitance density, which is in high demand as the increasing power consumption of micro processors calls for ultrathin decoupling capacitors with Landside mounting.
The group company Smoltek Semi has signed a joint development agreement (JDA) with a subsidiary of the global electronic component company Yageo group to commercialize a silicon based carbon nanofiber discrete capacitor.
The Group company Smoltek Semi has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with a global manufacturer of capacitors for the joint development of Smoltek’s ultra-thin CMF-MIM capacitors and, provided that the development goals are achieved, mass production and sales via a 50/50-owned joint venture.
After completed tests and evaluations, Smoltek Semi has now placed an order for a machine for future industrial manufacturing of carbon nanofibers to the company’s ultra-thin CNF-MIM capacitors.
Smoltek conducts operations in the development, industrialization and licensing of technology solutions, based on the company’s patent-protected carbon nanofiber technology, for the semiconductor industry within the Group company Smoltek Semi. Its main focus is the industrialization and commercialization of the company’s ultra-thin CNF-MIM capacitors.
The evaluation license agreement that Smoltek signed in April 2020 with a global manufacturer of electronic components has been extended further. The work within this project is carried out by the subsidiary Smoltek Semi, whose main objective is to develop and license the manufacture of ultra-thin capacitors based on Smoltek’s patent-protected carbon nanofiber technology.
A main goal for Smoltek Semi is to develop an industrial process for mass production of discrete CNF-MIM capacitors at contract manufacturers (foundry), including a specially designed machine for large-scale production of carbon nanofibers.
Håkan Persson, with many years of experience in running and developing listed technology companies, is appointed new CEO of Smoltek. He will assume the position in October.
Smoltek announces that the company has recruited Martin Lenart, as a part-time operational advisor.
Smoltek announces that the license agreement, signed with a global manufacturer of electronic components for its technical and commercial evaluation of Smoltek’s capacitor technology, will be further extended until the end of August 2021. The extended joint project will continue with the aim of making it possible for the customer to enter into a commercial licensing agreement with Smoltek.
The announced project within the framework of Vinnova’s program “Smarter electronic systems” has been completed according to plan. Smoltek will now continue the work to achieve integration of CNF-MIM capacitors on 200 and 300 mm wafers.
Smoltek has developed the world’s thinnest capacitor. The company is now demonstrating practically what it has previously claimed by producing a prototype of a CNF-MIM capacitor with a total height of just under 40 micrometers.
Smoltek announces that the agreement signed with a leading capacitor manufacturer for technical and commercial evaluation of the company’s CNF-MIM technology has been further extended, to December 31. At the same time, the parties have initiated a concrete dialogue on a possible continuation of the collaboration, with a decision to be expected during the first quarter of 2021.
Shafiq Kabir is the founder and CIO of Smoltek. Since the start of the company his thirst for knowledge and innovation has transformed into a IP strategy that the Smoltek business model now is based upon. A strategy that has evolved as the company has grown.
Smoltek announces that the agreement signed with a global manufacturer of electronic components for technical and commercial evaluation of the company’s CNF-MIM technology will be extended until the end of March 2021. In addition to further evaluation, the parties will also discuss the way forward after the evaluation, including a potential broadening of the collaboration.
In 2020 Smoltek signed two licensing agreements for evaluation of the CNF-MIM technology. These are the first steps towards commercialization of the revolutionizing capacitor concept. But there are still some hurdles to jump.
On October 1st Ola Tiverman takes on a new role as President of the wholly owned subsidiary Smoltek Semi AB, a business unit entirely focused on licensing technology concepts to the semiconductor and electronics industry. Olas new title: CRO & President Smoltek Semi.
Smoltek announces that the agreement signed in the spring with a leading capacitor manufacturer for technical and commercial evaluation of the company’s CNF-MIM technology will be extended until the end of October.
Watch Françoise von Trapp (3D InCites) interview with CRO & COO, Ola Tiverman from this year’s virtual SEMICON West.
In the spring of 2020 Smoltek signed two separate evaluation license agreements for its disruptive CNF-MIM capacitor technology. In this interview, Ola Tiverman, former Chief Operation Officer at Smoltek explains how this kind of evaluation projects are structured and what the purpose of them are.
