The need for unlimited communication and access to information
has led to an ever-increasing demand for bandwidth, and the need to go beyond 5G. High bandwidth means high frequencies and short wavelengths. Short wavelengths mean tiny antennas and structures.
From radio astronomy research to THz wavelength communication, our
CERES µAM system allows you to engineer high-frequency microelectronic components with sub-micrometer precision. For example, pictured is a microscale waveguide 3D printed in pure copper (gold also available) for use
within Traveling Wave Tubes (TWT)
. These TWTs are essential for maintaining signal strength, but are extremely difficult to manufacture. This is where Exaddon's technology comes in.
works through local electroplating of ionic metal, allowing you to manufacture minute antennas in geometries impossible for any other technology. Through the incredible precision and control which CERES offers, access to the THz range can be fully realized via our metal 3D printing technology.
