New and in 3D: Automatic 3D data conversion and 3D-MID prototyping


Aarbergen - At this year’s Munich Electronica trade fair (November 11th-14th), Beta LAYOUT continues to announce interesting innovations. Brand new for Beta LAYOUT at Electronica is the introduction of “3D-MID prototypes.” Molded Interconnect Device (MID) is the production of moldings with integrated conductive structures. In mass production, these moldings are manufactured using injection molding techniques. For prototyping purposes, this method is not economically feasible. Coming soon, Beta LAYOUT will offer the ability to manufacture MID components in prototype and small batch quantities, including the production of formed components by 3D printing, metallic coating, laser patterning, selective metallization, and mounting.

Still, we can’t explain the basics, such as why individual cells have their own internal clocks.
