Thanks. 

We use a laser-based process in which narrow grooves and holes are engraved in a thin substrate and filled with nanoparticle silver paste that cures to solid silver at moderate temperatures.  Typical conductor widths are 15 micrometers.  These narrow conductors are easy to route between pads and under components to make miniature circuit modules using the smallest surface mount components.  Connections to the silver conductors are made with conductive epoxy. 

There is more detail on the module fabrication process in the publications on the download page at potomacmeso.com.  No photolithography or etching is involved and no lead is used so the process is pretty green.

Is it your intent to sell these boards, in time?

Yes, but we would first like to get more input from various kinds of users about what they need inside the miniature modules (MCU type, regulators, sensors, op amps, memory, etc.) and how they would like to connect to it (connectors, cable, solder contacts to a board, epoxy contacts to a board, etc.).  Comments and suggestions are always appreciated, either here or through our website, www.potomacmeso.com.

I have some project ideas, but am too new to the technology to answer the requirements question with enough confidence to make it worthwhile. I'll definitely watch with interest.

i'm strongly interested in the wireless sensor node. Never considered the nrf24l01+ chips. That could be a good couple ...
