Louise Duker, Chief Product Officer at Smoltek, talks about how Smoltek will take the company's technology concept from manufacturing in a laboratory environment to industrial production in a factory - and how the company's product range of ultra-thin capacitors will be developed.
The group company Smoltek Semi will together with, the collaboration partner, Yageo present the first planned joint product technology – ultra-thin decoupling capacitors for mobile phones – at the largest European electronic event next week.
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.
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.
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.
Smoltek has developed the world’s thinnest discrete capacitor. 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 most amazing thing about this microscopic capacitor is its performance. One square millimeter has a capacitance of a whopping 650 nanofarads (650 nF/mm2). Read on for more details.
