Will Printed Electronics & 3D Printing disrupt PCB rapid prototyping?

Will Printed Electronics & 3D Printing disrupt PCB rapid prototyping?

The vast majority of electronic circuits are currently made using Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) that are both rigid and flat. The market for traditional Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) currently stands at around $60bn. This established technology is used across a variety of different final applications. Several technologies related to traditional PCBs are now emerging in the form of commercial products that address one or more of the limitations with traditional PCBs. Some of these new technologies aim to improve the current workflow by allowing traditional PCB designs to be prototyped more quickly, cheaply and locally. Other new technologies aim to fill gaps in markets such as wearable technologies where rigid PCBs have significant limitations. Finally, some new technologies promise to completely revolutionise the electronics industry by allowing fully 3D printed electronics with traces and components used anywhere inside an object.

Wearable Technology: Lessons of History

Wearable Technology: Lessons of History

Many new wearable technologies will appear in luxury designer products and fashion following the modest beginning with non-electronic technology such as artificial diamonds and Swarovsky selling base metal linking glass that is coated with interference layers. High margins await.

Quantum Materials' tetrapod quantum dots break Kasha's Rule

Quantum Materials' tetrapod quantum dots break Kasha's Rule

Since 1950, Kasha's Rule 1, a principle of photochemistry, held true that if a source of light excited a molecule enough, the molecule would fluoresce in a single color.

Smart Packaging Comes to Market

Smart Packaging Comes to Market

This article concerns the market for electronic smart packaging devices, increasingly known as "e packaging". Global demand for these devices will grow rapidly from a mere $76 million in 2013 to $1.45 billion in 2023. Most of this will involve consumer packaged goods CPG. The rapid growth will be driven by trials now being carried out by leading CPG companies and the rapid technical developments emanating from over 3000 organisations, half of them academic, that are currently working on printed and potentially printed electronics. There will also be growth from existing applications such as talking pizza boxes, winking logos on multipacks of biscuits and bottles of rum, compliance monitoring blisterpacks in drug trials, prompting plastic bottles of drugs that prompt the user, testers on batteries and reprogrammable decoration on mobile phones. However, our projected adoption, large as it may seem, only represents a few percent of CPG packages being fitted with these devices in 2023.
