Cambridge Nanotherm Partners With Japanese Distribution Giant


Partnership with Inabata brings significant sales and distribution channel to thermal management specialists

Cambridge Nanotherm, producer of innovative nanoceramic thermal
management technology for LEDs and electronics, has announced a
partnership with Japanese sales and distribution giant Inabata.

partnership adds a global sales and distribution arm to the UK-based
company. The agreement gives Inabata worldwide sales and distribution
rights for Cambridge Nanotherm's thermal management solutions across key

Cambridge Nanotherm's thermal management technology
is already in production stage with many of the top LED manufacturing
companies, and now the company is looking to use Inabata's global
network to both consolidate existing relationships and open up new
markets and new applications. The partnership with Inabata provides
Cambridge Nanotherm access to an exceptionally qualified sales and
distribution team with extraordinary reach and an unrivalled reputation
in the marketplace.

Inabata is a major player in the world of
electronics distribution, with more than 60 offices in 19 countries and
around 3,500 employees globally. Inabata's three "˜Information and
Electronics' divisions provide everything from displays, imaging and
clean energy solutions, to Li-Ion batteries, general semiconductors, and
raw semiconductor processing materials. Overall the IT and electronics
division represents approximately 38% of Inabata's revenue.

delighted to be working with Inabata to open up new markets for our
innovative thermal management solutions," commented Mike Edwards, sales
director at Cambridge Nanotherm. "Inabata's focus on servicing the
supply chain of the top electronics manufacturers, and their expertise
in the information and electronics arena, makes Inabata a perfect match
for Cambridge Nanotherm. What's more, while Inabata's ability to execute
globally played a key role in our selection process, that they are
headquartered in Japan aligns closely with one of our main strategic

"Inabata's agreement to sell Cambridge Nanotherm's
products is a clear vindication of the enormous market potential of
Cambridge Nanotherm's thermal management solutions. Both Cambridge
Nanotherm and its customers stand to benefit from Inabata's considerable
sales and distribution network, expertise, and the access this will
give Cambridge Nanotherm to its key markets worldwide."

Matsuo, manager at Inabata, commented: "A partnership between Cambridge
Nanotherm and Inabata is exactly what this rapidly growing market needs
right now and in the near future. Cambridge Nanotherm's unique products
address several major shortcomings of existing thermal management
solutions and can play a role in helping to shape the future of the
industry. The potential for Cambridge Nanotherm in global markets is
huge, and we look forward to realising the potential of this innovative

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
