Technology has almost come full circle: we started printing with graphite (pencils) as children and will now be printing electronic circuits using graphene. "plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose"

Unfortunately I won't be in Santa Clara for Printed Electronics. Still here in wintery old England. But I will try and check out Vorbeck Materials Inc.

My mistake, That should read 90-micron line width and 90-nm thickness. It has now been corrected.

Wow! Printing 90nm and below using a modified standard inkjet printer. That should get them the Nobel Prize. Surely there must be an error of several orders of magnitude in this? Even 90um width is still impressive.

Combine this with home 3D printers and one day some percentage of the manufacturing infrastructure could be replaced. Throw in Arduino and other open-source designs and things really get interesting. larrym

I agree that the technology has a way to go, but that said, it has been a long time since I such a potential game changing technology as Graphene. Only time will tell if it fulfills its promises. Cool stuff thought.

@PeterClark: timely article... the Printed Electronics conference starts at Santa Clara tomorrow. I was privy to a news brief by Dr. Cathleen Thiele of IDTechEx who says Vorbeck Materials Inc. will have their patented Graphene-based electronic ink will appear in major retail stores sometime in late 2011 (we are there almost!). I will keep you posted most likely with an article on EE Times (if you are going to attend, please let me know, we can meet F2F!). Dr. MP Divakar

This technology has probably a long way to go until potential commercial appeal but it looks very promising...Kris

Wearable electronics is one great innovation. The ease of prototyping may benefit more people. The question is how much a 3x3 real-printed circuit board will cost.

It is often said that "the devil is in the details." All too often those details are hidden deep within a datasheet, where you can easily overlook them. When a datasheet reference circuit ...
