Previous publications showed the potential of gold nanoparticle inks in microelectronic manufacturing. The main advantage of using nanoparticles for the production of microelectronic conductors is their low melting point. Indeed the melting point of gold nanoparticles decreases dramatically with decreasing size. This interesting property presents us with an uncomplicated way in which to produce electronic conductors on plastics, thus manufacture flexible electronics. Microelectronic applications which make use of materials other than silicon make their appearance ever more often. In this paper we present a method of manufacturing multilayered electronic circuits using a scanning-probe-inspired technology to deposit and anneal a gold nanoink on various substrates. We then tested the quality of this technology by applying it to a real complete electronic circuit.
