DMRPCB.COM announces the release of a new additive printed electronics technology Silver bullet which can replace almost any printed circuit manufactured today with only additive silver and Nano low temperature fusing copper inks layered and contained in a trench in a photo image-able dielectric material. The totally green manufacturing process applies fine lines down to 50 microns into a trench or grove in the photo image-able Nanoceramic dielectric material applied to typical fr4 pcb laminates. Vias as fine as 50 micron are structured in openings between the dielectric layers.
The big advantage is the process uses 1/10 the amount of equipment typical in a PCB shop. Being totality additive the silver or copper printed circuit does not use dangerous chemicals for plating or etching. The green additive silver /copper ink printing system is saving vast amounts of both water and electricity with a zero carbon footprint. The silver bullet process can manufacture advanced 2 layer to 20 layer multi-layers flex or HDI high technology circuits in a small foot print facility with low technology equipment. The silver bullet additive circuit technology is perfect for an electronics business to manufacture their own PCB in house. The low cost small area circuit facility can manufacture a very reliable low cost high technology circuit in shorter time at a lower cost then buying PCB's and waiting for delivery. The silver bullet additive technology also makes a good choice for an addition to any existing PCB shop wanting to upgrade to additive green technologies. Visit DMRPCB.COM for more details.
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
