Asahi Glass invests in U.S. firm with advanced electrode technology
(Japan Economic Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) TOKYO, March 11 -- (Kyodo) _ Asahi Glass Co. said Monday it has invested $2.1 million in Triton Microtechnologies Inc. to obtain access to the U.S. company's advanced electrode technology.
The Triton technology is designed to form electrodes in ultra-thin glass interposer substrates for next-generation semiconductor chips for mobile devices.
Asahi Glass plans to combine its micro-hole drilling process with Triton's fill technology employing special copper paste to develop next-generation semiconductor packaging using ultra-thin glass for smaller and higher-function mobile devices.
An interposer connects silicon memory chips and printed-circuit boards with electrodes.
Asahi Glass needs the hole-fill technology of the Tucson, Arizona-based company to bring its ultra-thin interposers into commercial production.
