Smoltek specializes in the development of nanostructure fabrication technology to solve advanced materials engineering problems. Smoltek has developed SMOLTEK Tiger™, a proprietary nanostructure technology platform that enables the formation of nanostructures optimized for advanced semiconductor packaging applications.
According to Smoltek, Smoltek Tiger™ is designed to overcome the limitations of transistors scaling in order to further shrink the size of future semiconductors. The technology grows carbon nanostructures on a CMOS industrial platform at industry-compatible temperatures. The company has focused its research on developing combinations of material stacks that enable the growth of carbon nanostructures on different substrates and the freedom to tailor the positioning and properties of the grown nanostructures. With its innovative research, the company managed to reduce the temperature of nanoparticles to under 390° C.
Based on the core nanostructure growth technology, Smoltek has demonstrated the following applications and functional properties by utilizing carbon nanostructures: ultra-fine flip-chip bump interconnects; filtering or decoupling RF device interconnects; die attach films for thermal, electrical and/or mechanical purposes; and electrochemical or solid-state mini supercapacitors.
Smoltek will attempt to pitch this technology to investors and potential customers at SEMICON Europa, a global exhibition for manufacturing supply chain leaders in semiconductor technology in Europe. Several promising companies were chosen to expose their products at Innovation Village, the open platform for start-up companies and investors within materials and equipment for electronics and semiconductors, as well as micro- and nanotechnologies.
