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.
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 has presented new and improved electrical data for CNF-MIM at EDAPS in Taiwan. The focal point has been on lowering the ESR value that we presented in September.
The EDAPS conference in Kaohsiung Taiwan, December 16–19 will be an excellent forum to highlight the latest advances for our CNF-MIM capacitor technology concept.
Smoltek will be part of a Swedish business delegation going to Seoul, South Korea in December. This gives us the opportunity to connect and have a sit down with Korean semiconductor giants.
Smoltek is awarded a new patent. This US patent is the first of a patent family in the direction of CNF-MIM capacitor applications on interposers. This brings our IP portfolio now to consists of 54 granted patents.
A year ago, the capacitance density for the CNF-MIM capacitor technology was at 200 nF/mm^2. In May this year it had risen to 350. And now we nearly have doubled that to +650 nF/mm^2!
Karl Lundahl is taking on the new position as Vice President Product Management at Smoltek, with start this fall. Karl has a long track record within the semiconductor, photovoltaic and electronic industries. In particular, Karl is bringing extensive experience in the field of advanced semiconductor packaging.
