Technology Lecture: Ink-Jet Deposition of Materials for Electronics Manufacturing

Date: 19 Aug 2005 - 19 Aug 2005

Venue: SIMTech, Auditorium, Tower Block, Level 3


In the last decade, ink-jet has come to be viewed as a precision microdispensing tool in addition to its huge success with colour printing. Today, this tool is being used in a wide range of applications, including electrical & optical interconnects, sensors, medical diagnostics, drug delivery, MEMS packaging and nanostructure materials deposition. Ink-jet microdispensing is data-driven, non-contact, and is capable of precise deposition of picoliter volumes at high rates, even onto non-planar surfaces. Being data-driven, ink-jet dispensing is highly flexible and can be readily automated into manufacturing lines. This lecture will illustrate a few of the applications of ink-jet technology that are related to embedded passives, micro-optics, solder-jetting and potential MEMS manufacturing applications.
