Abstract

As the number of passive components in electronic circuits increases, new methods for fabricating passives are under development to optimize utilization of board space. In this paper, we will describe the performance capabilities of TPL's micro‐contact printing (μCP) process to fabricate near‐net‐shape structures with feature sizes ranging from 100 microns to the sub‐micron scale. Like thick film processes, this novel process is compatible with a broad materials base, making a large range of materials properties available. Unlike thick film, however, this novel process employs powder‐free inks that can be patterned with high resolution. It is anticipated that this process will enable integration of passive components that show thin film performance at thick film cost. Emphasis in this paper will be placed on processing conditions, and materials properties to demonstrate the feasibility of this process for passive device fabrication.

Abstract

Purpose

At present, the adoption of cryptocurrency investment has brought consideration to the globe. The present paper attempts to investigate the intention to adopt cryptocurrency (IACR) among the potential investors of Pakistan.

Design/methodology/approach

The theory of planned behavior (TPB) is applied to underpin the conceptual framework. The study uses a quantitative approach. The study collects cross-sectional data through an online survey questionnaire. In the last, the authors utilized 334 samples for outcomes.

Findings

Findings of the SEM reveal a significant positive effect of attitude, subjective norms (SNs), perceived behavioral control (PBC) and trust on IACR.

Practical implications

The outcomes of an investigation would develop further intention and trust towards cryptocurrency adoption. The results would support developing favorable policies regarding the reduction of the ban on cryptocurrency in Pakistan to make easier transactions of the investors further. Possibly, it brings several opportunities in all segments of society in making the digital transaction modes through cryptocurrency. Finally, the findings would further validate the TPB in the context of cryptocurrency.

Originality/value

The study provides a better understanding of cryptocurrency and investors IACR. The empirical evidence further develops the other individuals' intentions towards cryptocurrency usage.
