This 3D printer exclusively makes Printed Circuit Boards

This 3D printer exclusively makes Printed Circuit Boards | EMSinsider # | Scoop.it

Instead of acquiring a 3D printer to make useless knick-knacks that ultimately go in the garbage, why not grab one that makes something a bit more practical, like a printed circuit board?

 

To print images on a substrate, EX⊃1; uses two inkjet cartridges similar to the ones in your desktop printer, but lays down silver nitrate and ascorbic acid (vitamin C) - instead of ink. When these two chemicals mix, a reaction occurs producing silver nano-particles that leave a conductive silver image on the substrate.

 

The connectivity of the silver nitrate is as dependable as that of copper traces.

Conductive ink for drawing circuits for flexible electronic books, displays and wearables

Conductive ink for drawing circuits for flexible electronic books, displays and wearables | EMSinsider # | Scoop.it

A picture drawn with conductive ink lights up a green LED (credit: American Chemical Society) Chinese researchers have developed a novel conductive metal.

 

Chinese researchers have developed a novel conductive metal ink made of  copper nanosheets that can be used in a pen to draw a functioning, flexible electric circuit on regular printer paper. This development could be a step beyond the inkjet-printed circuits. The new process could pave the way for a wide range of new bendable gadgets, such as electronic books that look and feel more like traditional paperbacks, roll-up tablets, and wearables, according to the researchers.


They made copper nanosheets in the laboratory, coated with silver nanoparticles to help the copper nanosheets overlap and stack together in a laminar (multi-layer) structure to improve conductivity. They then incorporated this material into an ink pen, using it to draw patterns of lines, words and even flowers on regular printer paper.


To show that the ink could conduct electricity, the scientists added small LED chips (lights) to the drawing that lit up when the circuit was connected to a battery. To test the ink’s flexibility, they folded the papers 1,000 times, even crumpling them up, and showed that the ink maintained 80 to 90 percent of its conductivity.

 

Wenjun Dong, Ge Wang and colleagues note that current efforts to create flexible circuits are “complicated, time-consuming, and expensive processes.” The research was funded by the National Natural Science Foundation of China, the Zhejiang Provincial Natural Science Foundation of China, the National High-Tech R&D Program of China, the Program for New Century Excellent Talents in University, and the Program for Changjiang Scholars and Innovative Research Team in University.

The Next HOPE (2010): How to Run an Open Source Hardware Company

Saturday, July 17, 2010: 10:00 am (Tesla): In this session, open source hardware pioneers Limor "Ladyada" Fried of Adafruit Industries and Phillip Torrone of MAKE Magazine show how anyone can start their own open source hardware business. The talk will show how Adafruit runs its open hardware business, top to bottom -- from choosing a PCB (printed circuit board) manufacturer to selecting which open source online shopping cart works best for selling electronics online. Limor and Phil will also give a detailed overview of the top ten open source hardware businesses, what they do, and what you can learn from their projects and products. If you're considering turning your electronics hobby into a full-fledged business, this is a talk not to miss.

Richard Florida: The Urban Tech Revolution | Urban Land Magazine

Richard Florida: The Urban Tech Revolution | Urban Land Magazine | EMSinsider # | Scoop.it

Ever since their nearly simultaneous births roughly half a century ago, the high-tech industry and venture capital have been clustered in suburbs: in the low-rise office parks spread across California’s vaunted Silicon Valley, where Intel, Apple, Google, and Facebook have their headquarters; along the Route 128 tech corridor near Boston; in Redmond, Washington, outside Seattle, where Microsoft’s vast headquarters is located; in the suburbs surrounding Austin, Texas; and in the North Carolina Research Triangle of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill, to give a few notable examples.

 

They are not so much suburbs as “nerdistans,” specifically developed to attract high-tech industry and high-tech workers. Think of San Narciso in Thomas Pynchon’s The Crying of Lot 49, “less an identifiable city than a grouping of concepts—census tracts, special purpose bond-issue districts, shopping nuclei, all overlaid with access roads to its own freeway.” Looking at its expanse through the windows of her rental car, one of the book’s characters “thought of the time she’d opened a transistor radio to replace a battery and seen her first printed circuit. The ordered swirl of houses and streets, from this high angle, sprang at her now with the same unexpected, astonishing clarity.”

 

In our studies of the geography of venture capital–financed high technology back in the late 1980s, Martin Kenney and I identified two dominant complexes: Silicon Valley and Route 128. While New York City possessed a lot of venture capital, the great majority of it was exported to those two areas. We did not identify a single urban center as a home to a significant cluster of high-tech innovation and venture capital–backed startup activity.
