Smoltek 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 SEK 1 million.
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 thickness is highly coveted in advanced 2.5D and 3D semiconductor circuit packaging solutions,” says Smoltek’s COO Ola Tiverman.
