Circuits with Integrated Functional Capacitors

3D printed electronic capacitorThe capacitors consist of parallel layers of conductive plates with the AME (Additive Manufacturing of Electronics) dielectric in between. Up to 50 layers of the dielectric can be produced, enabling a variety of capacitor values depending not only on the number of layers but also on the area.

Planar DC-DC Up Converter Transformer

3d printed dc dc up converterThe 3D printed electronic device showed here is a 5V to 18V Up Converter powering 4 LEDs. The Up-Conversion is achieved with a set of two concentric 20 turns coils manufactured during the additive manufacturing process. A total of 13 mounted components are soldered either manually or by solder reflow procedures specified by Nano Dimension.

Vertically Stacked Integrated Cuircuit (IC)

3d printed integrated circuit (IC)

Stacked ICs in an AME (Additively Manufactured Electronic) structure have a higher circuitry density than traditional PCBs by allowing ICs to be mounted and interconnected on top of each other. The circuit uses a combination of High-Density Interconnects (HDI) and vias to enable vertically assembled integrated circuits. Thus mounting of ICs with varying sizes from small to large and reducing the total AME surface area. Up to 4 ICs that conform to the specific pin layouts can be stacked.

Circuit with side mounted and inserted components

3D printed Circuit with side mounted and inserted components

Side mounting of components in AMEs (Additively Manufactured Electronic) enables the use of an area not common for mounting components, resulting in a smaller AME as compared to all components being on the top or on top and bottom of the AME. Furthermore, side-mounted components also enable the creation of customized small AMEs that can be inserted into a socket to provide configuration-specific functionality to a generic PCB motherboard.

Board with side-mounted components and battey sockets

3d printed board with side-mounted components and battey sockets

Side mounting of components in Additively Manufactured Electronic enables the use of an area not common for mounting components, resulting in a smaller device as compared to all components being on the top or on top and bottom of the circuit. In addition, the availability of a battery socket produced during the additive manufacturing process, eliminates the need to purchase this component and the related assembly process, therefore improving reliability and reducing overhead cost.

Internet of Things (IoT) and WiFi Hot Access points

3D printed Internet of Things (IoT) and WiFi Hot Access points

To maintain good data integrity, accurate send and receive data signals are required. The 3D printed IoT/WiFi access point circuit demonstrates a fully functional device with a tested data transmission and reception accuracy of over 99%. The high accuracy of the 2.4GHZ data transmission is due to the dielectric properties and the antenna’s tight dimension control enabled by the additive manufacturing technology of the DragonFly LDM system.
