NanoPierce: Ready to Shrink the World - A Revolution in the Field of Microelectronics

This Is a Global News Network Report on

NanoPierce Technologies (OTC Bulletin Board: NPCT)

    LONDON, April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Global News Network is currently doing a
 series of reports on companies with emerging technologies, which have the
 potential of having an impact on global communications and the global economy.
 This report is available in English, French, Spanish, German, Chinese,
 Portuguese, Japanese, Hindi and Italian, for international distribution.  The
 following is a report on NanoPierce Technologies, Inc.
     NanoPierce Technologies, having received over ten million dollars in new
 financing and having just recently opened the doors to two fully operational
 facilities in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and in Munich, Germany, is now
 prepared for high volume production of its state-of-the-art interconnection
 technology, a technology which requires up to 90% less space to perform
 connections to electronic components than current processes.  The NanoPierce
 Connection System (NCS) is superior in size, strength, cost and quality to the
 current processes on the market.
     Current electronic connection technologies take up to 10 times the area of
 the electronic component they are connecting.  NCS requires no more than the
 space underneath the component itself -- nearly a thousand percent reduction
 in size.
     NCS utilizes microscopic, metallized, hardened particles deposited through
 electroplating to the contact pads of electronic components.  When these
 contact pads make connection with the mating contact points, an immediate
 connection is made, which completes the electrical circuit.
     NCS has the following advantages over existing technologies: (1) less
 expensive processing; (2) considerably faster -- all connections no matter how
 many can be made in a single application; (3) superior thermal and electrical
 properties for component tolerance and conductivity -- excelling in radio
 frequency performance; (4) increased strength in connections and flexibility;
 (5) smaller -- up to a ten fold size reduction; (6) requires no special
 environment when applying the process such as clean rooms, etc.; moreover, NCS
 can be applied at room temperature; (6) NCS is easily integrated into
 pre-existing assembly lines -- quickly and inexpensively; and (7) permits
 immediate testing of the connection (rather than a long delay waiting for the
 connection to cure or cool down).
     The overwhelming advantage of the NanoPierce technology represents a
 crucial breakthrough that will profoundly change the accepted process for
 electronic interconnections, conductivity and performance.
     The electronics industry represents the world's largest market with
 approximately 2.4 trillion electrical connections made each year with over a
 $24 Billion overall, annual market potential.  In addition to trading on the
 OTC BB in the United States, NanoPierce also trades on the European stock
 exchange in Frankfurt and Hamburg, Germany.  You may access the Company
 website at www.Nanopierce.com
     NanoPierce is under the leadership of President and Chief Executive
 Officer Paul H. Metzinger with the technical and marketing expertise of
 Dr. Herbert J. Neuhaus, who holds a Ph.D. in Applied Physics from the
 Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Dr. Michael E. Wernle, who holds a
 Ph.D. from the Technical University of Vienna.  NanoPierce is establishing
 numerous strategic relationships with global players to exploit NCS on an
 industry-wide basis.  NanoPierce intends to compete for the entire electronic
 connectivity market including the production of Smart labels, Smart Cards,
 LEDS, and particularly, chips at the wafer level.
     NanoPierce NCS technology has been tested by Meinen Ziegel against the ISO
 standards for the exceptionally demanding smart cards and has exceeded the
 usual standard by a multiple of eight times.  NCS being 800% superior to the
 ISO standards in connectivity production.  Paul Metzinger, President and Chief
 Executive Officer, stated in a recent interview, "These tests conclusively
 establish the superiority of the NCS technology over the competition in terms
 of cost, performance and reliability.  We remain firmly convinced that NCS
 technology will become the standard of the industry."
     The ultimate application of NCS is at the wafer level.  NanoPierce has
 successfully developed and tested its NCS applied to chips on wafers.  The
 results are astounding.  The implications are so significant for the entire
 electronics market that many of the global players among the wafer
 manufacturers are in discussion with NanoPierce and working with NanoPierce to
 assess the potential for this application.
     When applied at the wafer level on the contact pads on each chip, the
 ultimate user of the chips can use it to make and assemble almost any type of
 product using a chip.  This market is measured in a multiple of billions of
 units, most of which are used in disposable inexpensive products -- creating
 an enormous recurring demand.
     To capitalize on over five years of research and development, NanoPierce
 is now ready to aggressively exploit the extraordinary growth market in
 microelectronics with superior services and technologies.
