Smoltek Nanotech Holding AB, Göteborg, Sweden, announces that the company has signed an evaluation agreement with one of the world’s largest capacitor manufacturers. The agreement concerns an evaluation license where Smoltek’s patented carbon nanofiber-based CNF-MIM technology is to be evaluated in a joint project. The agreement is intended to lead to a production license agreement in the next step. The order value for this first step amounts to approximately Swedish Krona 1 million (Euros 90,484).
The agreement will be valid until August 2020, with the possibility to extension. During this time, the leading capacitor manufacturer will evaluate Smoltek’s CNF-MIM technology from both a technical and commercial perspective with the ambition to sign a production license agreement as a next step.
“This is the first license agreement that we have signed for our CNF-MIM technology, making it an important milestone for Smoltek. Both parties understand that our technology has great potential in the market for miniaturized high-performing capacitors,” says Smoltek’s CEO Anders Johansson.
During the autumn of 2019, Smoltek was able to demonstrate that the company’s CNF-MIM technology is competitive from an industrial perspective as it offers improved performance while using just a fraction of the space needed for conventional capacitors.
“A substantial reduction of the capacitor building-height is highly coveted in advanced 2.5D and 3D semiconductor circuit packaging solutions,” says Smoltek’s COO Ola Tiverman.
Smoltek is developing process technology and concepts for applications based on carbon nanotechnology, primarily for the global semiconductor industry. Smoltek’s unique technology enables the production of semiconductor components with smaller form factors, higher performance and lower energy consumption.
