Flexible thinking

Flexible printed circuit boards are unique among electronic interconnection and packaging technologies. The technology offers a wide variety of advantages unobtainable using conventional rigid interconnection methods.
Free-form integration of electronic elements through all three dimensions of space is both highly liberating to the design process and highly desirable in product design. Even so, such advantages cannot be garnered without a thorough understanding of the basic flex circuit design principles. Proper use of design principles learned and practiced over the years can provide a path to early success. In contrast, failure to use good design practices can result in failure and product redesign. The objective of the next several installments of this series is to provide that information which is vital to the successful production of flexible circuit designs that will consistently perform to user expectations.
