What is Printed Conductive Technology?

Printed Conductive Technology is a term coined by the recent rapid development of electronic devices that incorporate printed electronics into the designs. More and more materials have quickly become “circuit boards” equipped with components for electronic circuits.

How do printed electronics work?

The process of printed electronics is based on a method of combining certain materials to form a new way to manufacture electronics. By applying a solution-based conductive material using printing equipment, electrical devices can be created in applications such as inkjet printing, screen print, lithography and more.
