NanteroNantero is placing its ‘CMOS-friendly’ CNT process modules at SVTC’s two development fabs in the U.S. to allow for wider collaboration with potential licensees of Nantero’s technology and the ultimate aim of full commercialization. 

“By placing our CNT process module at SVTC, we are now able to support multiple co-development relationships across a growing array of CMOS-grade CNT devices,” said Greg Schmergel, CEO of Nantero. “Our development partners now have the opportunity to develop CNT products with us in a third-party environment utilizing state-of-the-art capabilities that will transfer efficiently to their own production environments.”

“SVTC is delighted to welcome Nantero as a partner,” said Dave Bergeron, SVTC’s CEO. “We have seen interest in CNTs coming from a number of companies looking to integrate CNTs with CMOS. Together, Nantero and SVTC have the technology and experience to accelerate their efforts.”

The companies noted that there is a huge gap between the promise of carbon nanotubes as demonstrated in research labs and being manufactured in high volumes within commercial products.
