Individual radar technology out of the 3D printer :
Radar technology is enabling an increasing number of everyday applications, such as distance and environment sensors for robots and industrial automation machines or transmitters and receivers for telecommunications. However, the concrete application scenarios are usually very individual, the quantities small and the manufacturing costs high. The new DiFeMiS research laboratory at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is focusing on this and developing printing technologies for precise high-frequency systems up to the terahertz range (THz) that are individual, small and inexpensive.

The well-known green printed circuit boards shape the image of electronics. But they are only suitable for circuits that operate at frequencies well below 100 GHz. In addition, boards for high-frequency systems and radar technology are mostly based on lithographic processes, which are, however, optimized for mass production: Creating an appropriate exposure mask is too cost-intensive for medium quantities of up to 10,000 units, as typically produced by small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The latest additive processes and precision printing technology could close the gap between individual and mass production.

The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) has now set a laboratory dedicated to research and develop such production techniques. Its heart is a configurable, micrometer-precise printing platform with which packaging can be realized in the future in a highly flexible and cost-effective way, explains Professor Thomas Zwick, head of the Institute for RF Technology and Electronics at KIT.
