About EoPlex

EoPlex Technologies Inc., is a Redwood City, CA company that is developing and commercializing a family of new technologies to manufacture complex miniature 3-D structures, circuits, sensors, and assemblies. The company is backed by Labrador Ventures, Draper Fisher Jurvetson, and Draper-Richards. EoPlex has developed proprietary and patented methods for production (High Volume Print-Forming™ or HVPF™) of 3-D structures from a wide range of metallic and non-metallic materials. Complex shapes such as three-dimensional grids, interwoven circuits, assemblies containing many parts, and multiple material structures can be produced at the same time. The EoPlex process makes it cost effective to mass-produce products, which would be difficult or impossible to manufacture using conventional techniques. Virtually any shape that can be computer modeled or scanned can be produced using EoPlex processes. The greatest cost advantage, however, is with small structures similar in size to semiconductor packaging. The company is currently working with customers in areas that include: 3-D ceramic circuit boards, pressure sensors, fluidics, fuel cells, medical components, thermal management, high-frequency and RF components and other applications.
