Abstract

The technology of additive manufacturing results in 3D printing of conductive traces in radio frequency circuits. This creates a plethora of possibilities in realizing flexible and wearable electronics. While the prototypes of microstrip transmission lines and antennas have been recently reported, there is now a need of Electromagnetic Compatibility based study of such 3D printed conductive traces. This paper presents a comparative study on the near end and far end unintentional crosstalk components between a pair of microstrip transmission lines made of Copper in the presence of a 3D printed conductive trace made of a commercially available conductive filament, Electrifi. Any physical contact with the 3D printed trace has been purposefully averted to discard the high contact resistance between the trace and such contacts.
