AKHAN Semiconductor, a technology company specializing in the fabrication and application of lab-grown, electronics-grade diamonds, announced today that it has obtained official notifications from both the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and Taiwan Intellectual Property Office (TIPO) for the Miraj Diamond trademark registration and patent allowance.
The official registration of the Miraj Diamond mark by the USPTO (Registration No. 5,438,740) follows nearly six years of completed filings fulfilled by the Illinois-based technology company following its launch in December 2012. The TIPO issued patent I615943 is the second AKHAN patent to be granted by the country- well-known to be strategic in the global semiconductor marketplace. The patent is a foreign counterpart of other issued and pending patents owned by AKHAN Semiconductor, Inc. that are used in the company’s Miraj Diamond® products. The claims protect uses far beyond the existing applications, including microprocessor applications. Covering the base materials common to nearly all semiconductor components, the intellectual property can be realized in everything from diodes, transistors, and power inverters, to fully functioning diamond chips such as integrated circuitry.
“The official declarations from both the USPTO and TIPO significantly add to the critical protections of the Miraj Diamond intellectual property portfolio and brand,” said Adam Khan, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of AKHAN Semiconductor. “Less than six years after our founding, the Miraj Diamond trademark is not only gaining global attention from the consumer electronics and semiconductor market places, but is also synonymous for next-generation performance, breakthrough capability, and flagship technology with diamond.”
“The notices of these issuances are very timely as we complete the construction of our cleanroom pilot production facility in northern Illinois,” added Carl Shurboff, AKHAN President and Chief Operating Officer. “With the targeted 2019 launch of our Miraj Diamond® Glass products for Smartphone devices and the concurrent development of our Miraj Diamond® electronics products for aerospace and defense, the brand equity we deliver in diamond continues unparalleled.”
“Safeguarding the technology and trademark from infringement, improper use, and other challenges, benefits not only our OEM Customers, by preserving their market value and time-based exclusivity, but also our shareholders, corporate development partners, and technology partners around the world,” said company Sales Advisor to the Board, Jeffrey G. Miller.
