Abstract

Art work employed in the fabrication of etched or deposited, printed circuits can be formed by using pressure-sensitive photographic emulsions. In particular, a high resolution, silver emulsion deposited on glass plates yields line patterns when a spherical element is rolled over its surface. Conductive paths and land patterns can be represented on such an emulsion. Upon development with conventional techniques, a visible image on a transparent background is obtained.

Fine Line Art Work Generation

Art work employed in the fabrication of etched or deposited, printed circuits can be formed by using pressure-sensitive photographic emulsions. In particular, a high resolution, silver emulsion deposited on glass plates yields line patterns when a spherical element is rolled over its surface. Conductive paths and land patterns can be represented on such an emulsion. Upon development with conventional techniques, a visible image on a transparent background is obtained.

The technique reduces the steps required to prepare art work. A one-to-one scale relationship between the master pattern and the finished art work can be obtained by proper selection and careful manipulation of the pressure-producing instrument.
