Applications in 3D Printed Electronics
Matt Schimmelbusch, 3S & Additive Product Manager – Emona Instruments

3D printing technologies such as inkjet deposition and aerosol jet are revolutionizing electronics R & D, manufacturing, research and education with the printing of mutli-layer PCBs, as well as resistors, capacitors, antennas, sensors and think film transistors. These technologies allow companies to reduce the size, thickness and weight or their end products as well as bring designs to market more quickly and keep sensitive design information in-house.
