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.”

Microvias: Links of Faith are Not Created Equally

07/18/2019 | Jerry Magera and J.R. Strickland, Motorola Solutions Inc.
Microvias connect adjacent copper layers to complete electrical paths. There are copper-filled microvias, which can be stacked to form connections beyond adjacent copper layers, and staggered microvias, which stitch adjacent copper layers with paths that meander on the layers between the microvias. This article discusses the various laser-drilled microvias and presents SEM photographs to begin the search for the root cause of weak copper interface.

Sharon Starr, Denny Fritz, and Mike Carano talk about the global 2018 IPC Technology Trends Report released early this year—the size of the survey, how it was conducted, the general findings, and regional differences. They also shared their takeaways and regional insights, and the industry outlook over the next five to 10 years.

An Examination of Glass-fiber and Epoxy Interface Degradation in Printed Circuit Boards

07/12/2019 | Bhanu Sood, Michael Osterman, and Michael Pecht, Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering
Multilayer organic laminates, which make up over 90% of the interconnecting substrates in electronics (standard FR-4 represents 85% of the substrates used for laminates), can develop a loss of electrical insulation resistance between two biased conductors due to conductive filament formation.
