World of instant electronic everything begins: Circuits can now be 3D-printed directly into electronic devices

FOR the past few months, a factory in China has been spitting out a new kind of smartphone. Inside each is an antenna that was 3D-printed directly onto the plastic housing.

It doesn’t sound like much, but this ability to print electronic components at the scale and speed required by the smartphone industry is new. It has the potential to usher in a world where sensors and electronics are embedded in everything around us. Continue reading “World of instant electronic everything begins: Circuits can now be 3D-printed directly into electronic devices”

Optomec Introduces Aerosol Jet Technology for 3D Printed Electronics (Video)

Optomec Aerosol Jet printing technology is an additive manufacturing process (aka 3D printing or direct write) that prints commercially-available conductive, dielectric, semiconductor and biologic inks onto a variety of 2D or 3D plastic, ceramic, and metallic substrates. The result is 3D digital printing that eliminates the need for hard tooling photomasks or stencils and enables engineering changes to be quickly implemented by simply modifying the design file.

Researchers prove semiconductors could be soldered and 3D printed, while still delivering proper electronic performance

A research effort led by Dmitri Talapin, a chemistry professor at the University of Chicago, has demonstrated how semiconductors could be soldered – and even 3D printed — and still deliver the proper electronic performance.

The classical method of manufacturing processes in the silicon industry does not require soldering; instead, engineers create a large silicon crystal which they can cut, carve, and etch to a desired shape. Continue reading “Researchers prove semiconductors could be soldered and 3D printed, while still delivering proper electronic performance”

Nascent Objects uses EnvisionTEC technology to create 3D printed consumer electronics (Video)

Nascent Objects analyzed close to 600 widely used consumer electronic products across the world, from home security cameras to WiFi speakers; each one is packaged and sold separately from one another. You may be surprised to learn that they found about 15 total electronic modules could build a vast majority of these various electronic products (about 80%).
