Printing Passive Electronic Components?
VQ Research is advancing Additive Manufacturing Technology to “3D print” high-performance electronics using ceramics and thick film metals.
Passive components (such as capacitors, resistors, and inductors) are a vital part of every electronic device. From everyday items like mobile phones and appliances to advanced aerospace and medical technology, passive devices are integral and ubiquitous.
VQ Research has a proprietary formulation for Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCCs) with the highest energy and power density in the industry, temperature-resistance to 300ºC and above, and very slow loss of stored energy (tera-ohms of internal resistance). The lifetime of these parts can be many decades without significant specification degradation. Unlike canister-type capacitors that contain toxic electrolytes, these MLCCs are solid-state, non-toxic, and mechanically strong.
