INCEP Technologies was rated by Prismark Partners LLC, an electronic industry consulting firm, as one of the top ten “Important New Companies” of the year in their latest Electronics Industry Report 2002. The report provides global analyses and forecasts for the electronics industry, including semiconductor production forecasts. In addition, core sections explore the state of the business, list key enabling technologies, and provide a business outlook for 2002. The report is available through Prismark and is expected to ship November 2001.

Prismark describes this year’s ten innovative companies as exhibiting notable focus on the development and enhancement of materials that allow faster, smaller and more functional semiconductor devices, the drive toward more durable electronics, and the importance of processing and assembly.

Prismark notes that the trend in electronic packaging for high-end systems and subsystems has been to continuously reduce size while increasing performance and functionality. This inevitably leads to power distribution concerns as voltage decreases and current increases, thermal management problems as heat density increases, and EMI containment issues as clock frequencies continue to rise. These issues form the basis of INCEP’s proprietary technology that addresses power, thermal, and EMI challenges.

Of INCEP’s several core technologies, Prismark highlights the INCEP PowerDirect™ power interconnect as the most unique. The first release of the PowerDirect technology is a high performance coaxial interconnect solution for efficiently delivering power directly to demanding semiconductor loads. Concentric conduction paths for both power and ground provide extremely low inductance and low resistance paths.
