Fabrication of Sensor Packages enabled by Additive Manufacturing – TINKER

tinker

Autonomous driving and self-driving cars represent one prominent example for the use of microelectronics and sensors, most importantly RADAR and LiDAR sensors. Their respective markets have a big potential, e.g. it is estimated that the market size of LiDAR in automotive will double itself in the next two years (within 2020 to 2022).

Rabbit Proto makes it easier to get circuits into 3D printed objects (VIDEO)

Circuit printers and 3D printers are relatively accessible these days. Rabbit Proto, an open source project based out of Stanford University, wants to make it a little bit simpler to put the two together with a set of kits it is offering that make it easier to print 3D objects that are electronics compatible from the start.

The EX makes printing circuits quick and easy – in the material of your choice

The Cartesian Co. printer EX¹ transforms electronics and prototyping in the same way that 3D printing has made things possible that were inconceivable even 5 years ago.

The EX¹ printer is not designed to create any 3D object like normal 3D printers. It’s been crafted and designed for one key purpose, to allow you to 3D print circuit boards, layering silver nano particles onto paper or any suitable surface to rapidly create a circuit board. In 2011, an article in Wired said that within two years 3D printers could print electronic circuits. Two years to the day, we’re announcing the EX¹, a printer that allows you to rapidly 3D print circuit boards.
