|Aerosol Jet Deposition for Direct Write Electronics|
|Keywords: Packaging, Printing, Interconnect|
|Optomec's M3D Aerosol Jet Deposition is a maskless additive printing technology enabling finer feature sizes than ink-jetting and screen printing processes. The process utilizes an innovative aerosol aerodynamic focusing technique which produces electronic traces and structures with feature sizes down to 10 microns. The process supports a wide variety of materials including nanoparticle inks, screen-printing pastes, conductive polymers, insulators, adhesives, and even biological matter that can be accurately jetted onto non-planar substrates including but not limited to glass, silicon, Kapton, alumina, and low-temperature plastics. Applications include direct printing of resistors, diodes, capacitors, transistors, interconnects and high performance devices.|
