SMARTKEM, INC. ANNOUNCES QUALIFICATION OF ITS TRUFLEX® MATERIALS
SmartKem, Inc. is a company seeking to reshape the world of electronics with a revolutionary semiconductor platform that enables a new generation of displays.
MANCHESTER, England, Sept. 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- SmartKem, Inc. (OTCQB: SMTK) is pleased to announce the qualification of SmartKem's TRUFLEX® SL03 photocurable, organic dielectric for use with existing Build-up film (BF) materials as a redistribution layer to interconnect High-Performance Computing (HPC) silicon ICs. The HPC market is projected to grow from $3.60Bn to $4.99Bn from 2022 to 2027, indicating significant opportunity as a result of this qualification.
TRUFLEX® SL03 can be patterned by direct laser writing using Direct Lithography Technology to deliver a maskless process for rapid prototyping, with via hole sizes down to 3.7 Microns diameter, at a low process temperature of 150°C. It is photocurable at 10millijoules/cm2, enabling rapid production throughput. The performance demonstrated in these tests illustrates the potential of this material for the next generation of high-density interconnects. A demonstration of this detailed performance can be seen at the ITRI (Industrial Technology Research Institute) booth, as well as high-resolution line width and high-end panel-level fan-out packaging or advanced IC substrate applications, at SEMICON Taiwan 2022 from 14th-16th of September 2022.
ITRI's booth can be found in N0662 (N Zone), 4F, Tainex1 at SEMICON.
