A new system of printing circuit boards has been created called AgIC Print that transforms a standard home printer into a circuit board manufacturing machine.
Offering a cheap and efficient way to print circuit boards to test prototypes or create projects using a special paper and printer ink. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the new AgIC Print circuit board printing system.
The special printer ink contains tiny silver particles less than 100,000th of a sesame seed in size and allows you to print a circuit in seconds to test a PCB layout. Its creators AgIC Inc. base in Tokyo Japan explain.
“Recent advances in material science have made it possible to manufacture magical conductive ink. The ink dries in a few seconds and conductivity emerges instantly when the traces are drawn on our photo inkjet printing paper. You can make circuits exactly as you use a printer using ordinary ink at your home and office.
Breadboards look like faster way of prototyping, but they can easily become messy. Circuit boards with AgIC technology are much simpler and more beautiful alternatives. You can replicate or revise your circuits as many times as you want.
With a sheet of paper, pieces of tiny electrical components along, and your imagination, you get a flying object, an intelligent sensor, and a wearable device in your hand. Let’s materialize your creativity.”
The AgIC Print project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think AgIC Print is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help AgIC Print become a reality.
