nGimat Announces Issued Patent Covering TUNABLE CAPACITORS USING FLUID DIELECTRICS

August 30, 2006 – Atlanta, GA – nGimat Co. announced today the recent issuance of U.S. patent No. 7,088,567 entitled Tunable Capacitors Using Fluid Dielectrics. This patent is directed to capacitors having dielectrics that undergo phase changes, e.g., from liquid to gas or solid to liquid, and a corresponding change in dielectric constant. Such capacitors can be used for rapid sensing of temperature or pressure in a wide range of systems including hydraulic and pneumatic systems. The capacitors are also useful as tunable capacitors in electrical, radio frequency and microwave applications.
