AKHAN Semiconductor Inc of Gurnee, IL, USA, which specializes in the fabrication and application of lab-grown, electronics-grade diamond as functional semiconductors, 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 firm following its launch in December 2012. The TIPO issued patent I615943 is the second AKHAN patent to be granted by the country. The patent is a foreign counterpart of other issued and pending patents owned by AKHAN that are used in its Miraj Diamond products. The firm says that the claims protect uses far beyond the existing applications, including microprocessors. 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,” says founder & CEO Adam Khan. “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,” he adds.

“The notices of these issuances are very timely as we complete the construction of our cleanroom pilot production facility in northern Illinois,” notes president & chief operating officer Carl Shurboff, who highlights the targeted 2019 launch of Miraj Diamond Glass products for Smartphone devices and the concurrent development of Miraj Diamond electronics products for aerospace and defense.

“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,” says Jeffrey G. Miller, sales advisor to the board.
