3D Printed Electronics - Rapid Prototyping Of PCBs
Santa Clara Convention Center, CA, USA
Grand Ballroom D
14:40 - 15:00
BotFactory is pushing the frontiers of additive manufacturing with SV2, its new desktop Electronics prototyping machine. SV2 prints electrical traces and picks-and-places components to build a whole PCB board in a few hours. The presentation will cover the challenges of ink-based electronics, a relevant topic for hybrid-PCBs and flex-hybrid-PCBs, as well as the innovations made for SV2 including high-count multi-layering, smart area stiffening and soldering. This presentation will present state of the art developments and will explain what they mean for the future of Electronics.
