The EM Lab published two seminal papers this month in IEEE Components, Packaging, and Manufacturing Technology. The first paper describes their work which automated hybrid direct-write 3D printing, giving them the powerful capability to build arbitrary metal-dielectric parts. The EM Lab is the first group in the world to accomplish this. The second paper describes how this new capability was used to build demonstrate the first-ever 3D/volumetric electrical circuit. The second paper also described the EM Lab’s custom CAD tool to design 3D/volumetric circuits. With these unique capabilities, the future is very bright for the EM Lab.
