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.
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.
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.
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.
Smoltek is awarded yet another approved patent, the fourth this year. The patent is also the third in a patent family protecting solutions for interposers based on the CNF-MIM capacitor concept. This means that our patent portfolio now comprises 59 granted patents.
Smoltek announces that the company has signed an evaluation agreement with one of the world’s largest capacitor manufacturers. The agreement concerns a project with a license for evaluation of Smoltek’s patented carbon nanofiber-based CNF-MIM technology. The intention is to replace the evaluation agreement with a production license agreement as a next step. The order value for this first step amounts to approximately SEK 1 million.
Smoltek attended the international IEEE EDAPS conference for the first time come this last December. Besides presenting new and improved data for the CNF-MIM technology Vincent Desmaris also won the title ‘Best Oral Paper Award’.
Smoltek is awarded a new patent. This Korean patent is the second of a patent family in the direction of CNF-MIM based compact energy storage interposers. This means that our patent portfolio now comprises 56 granted patents.
