First PRINTduino™ has arrived, and more will come.

One of the goals of 3WELES project is to fabricate fully functional microcontroller circuit, printed and 3D printed, with additional discrete components. An electronic circuit from silver paste was screen-printed on an elastic substrate, and elements were attached with electrically conductive adhesive. This allowed to fabricate a fully functional clone of Arduino™ microcontroller but based on a fully printed circuit, instead of PCB. We are currently working on 3D printed PRINTduino™, fabricated with elaborated materials, and with FDM and DW techniques.

This project was a part of a bachelor thesis „Applications of electrically conductive adhesives for assembly of printed electronics on a low temperature and elastic substrates” by Paweł Sawczuk.
