Printed Electronics Using Conductive Inks

Printed Electronics Conductive Inks

Printed Electronics is a technology involving printing conductive circuit patterns, typically in conjunction with thin a polymer protective coating, for use in interconnecting electronic devices. In use since the 1950’s, printed electronics have evolved from introductory flexible circuits, to today’s more advanced flexible electronic products.
