Nano Dimension Files Patent for 3D Printing of Electrically Shielded Conductive Traces


Reading time ( words)

Nano Dimension Ltd., a leader in the area of 3D Printed Electronics, announced today that Nano Dimension Technologies, a fully owned subsidiary of Nano Dimension, has filed a patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for the printing of shielded conductors combined in a PCB.

The patent presents an innovative solution for the phenomenon of electric power loss in PCBs that are primarily used in the communication industry.

The communications industry requires high speed data transfer, where current high speed circuitry reaches speeds of 60G-100G. PCBs for this industry suffer from losses between the conductive traces (crosstalk) and other phenomena arising from a multiplicity of signals. The loss phenomenon interferes with the proper function of the electric circuit and can prevent its proper function.

Nano Dimension has developed a unique 3D printing method that creates printed sheaths to shield the conductors like a form of insulated cable, and this new printing method allows the sheaths to be built into the PCB.

This innovative approach creates the opportunity to minimize the size of PCBs used in the high speed communication space.

By selectively depositing Nano Dimension's conductive ink, one can build a shield along the entire length of the conductor at a minimal distance. This prevents leakage and loss and is similar to the current practice of using shielded cables with the PCB externally. 3D printing allows the shielded cables to be embedded.

High-speed boards are essential to the telecom industry and are a key component of the rapid servers that allow real-time Big Data implementations.

About Nano Dimension

Nano Dimension Ltd., founded in 2012, focuses on development of advanced 3D printed electronics systems and advanced additive manufacturing. Nano Dimension's unique products combine three advanced technologies: 3D inkjet, 3D software and nanomaterials. The company's primary products include the first 3D printer in development, dedicated to printing multi-layer PCBs (printed circuit boards) and advanced nanotechnology-based conductive and dielectric inks. Nano Dimension trades on the NASDAQ and TASE under the symbol NNDM. The Bank of New York Mellon serves as the depositary for Nano Dimension.
