Beta Electronics has this week launched a new Kickstarter campaign to raise the $80,000 its development team require to take their new PCB printer and pattern transfer machine into production. The desktop-sized Litho tool has been designed to print a circuit and transfer a pattern in seconds, say the development team based in the United States. Enabling electronic enthusiasts, developers and makers to test their ideas and concepts without delay.
Beta Electronics explain more about the inspiration behind the desktop Litho PCB printing and pattern transfer machine: “You typically need to submit designs to a PCB foundry, spend tens to hundreds of dollars and wait for a week or two to have your circuits made. Often, the first version does not work, and iterations are generally needed to perfect the design. This means that you need to spend a lot more time and money! Sounds frustrating, right? That is exactly what motivated us to develop LITHO!” This
The Litho is now available to back from $1,049 for early bird backers and a full goes well should start shipping out to backers during June 2018.
