PV Nano Cell’s PV Nano Inks for the Mass Production of PCBs


Reading time ( words)

PV Nano Cell, an innovative producer of single-crystal nano-metric conductive digital inks, today announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with a leading manufacturer of printed circuit boards (PCBs) pursuant to which PV Nano Cell will provide, and the manufacturer will exclusively use, PV Nano Cell’s Sicrys™portfolio of conductive inks for the mass production of PCBs.

The parties believe this arrangement will constitute the first commercial mass production of PCBs using a digital conductive inkjet printing process. The MOU anticipates that such printer will be provided by PV Nano Cell at its cost, and PV Nano Cell is in discussions with several manufacturers to purchase such a printer.  PV Nano Cell will provide its inks at no charge for the first three months of production under the MOU.  Thereafter, the manufacturer will pay for the ink based upon an agreed upon pricing structure.

“Partnering with an impressive and established leader in PCB manufacturing with a proven track record is not only a natural fit for us but also provides us with the foundation we need to continue to expand into this market,” said Fernando de la Vega, Ph.D., founder and CEO of PV Nano Cell. “Our Sicrys™ family of conductive inks deliver enhanced performance characterized by a unique combination of low cost, high conductivity, long shelf-life and robust printing, placing them well ahead of competing products.”
