Summer Issue of Flex007 Magazine Available Now


Reading time ( words)

An increasing number of OEMs are being forced into using flexible and rigid-flex circuits, for a variety of reasons: Sometimes rigid boards won’t fit the shrinking enclosures anymore, or the companies just need rugged, reliable circuits. 

In the July 2018 issue of Flex007 Magazine, our contributors discuss some of the hurdles they faced when they dove into flex and rigid-flex circuits, and they offer advice to anyone considering a move into the flexible arena.

Check it all out this month in Flex007 Magazine, now on the virtual newsstand and available for delivery in your e-mailbox each month by subscribing here.

Be sure to download the PDF copy or future reference. The PDF is great for beach reading!

iNEMI’s PCB Roadmap Explained

05/01/2020 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
In an informative and enlightening webinar, iNEMI Project Manager Steve Payne was joined by Isola Group CTO Ed Kelley to explain, review, and discuss the details of the recently published “iNEMI 2019 Roadmap for Organic PCBs.” Pete Starkey provides an overview.

Flexible Circuit Design Guidelines

03/05/2020 | Flexible Circuit Technologies
Flexible circuit designs share many of the same challenges of rigid PCB designs, but there are also many differences and additional challenges. The very nature of a flex circuit being able to bend and flex make it as much a mechanical device as an electrical one. This creates a special set of requirements unique to flexible circuitry. Understanding how these requirements interact will allow the PCB designer to create a flex circuit that balances the electrical and mechanical features into a reliable, cost-effective interconnect solution.

University Students Point to the Future in their Research

04/23/2019 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Cutting-edge automation, AI, machine learning, and Industry 4.0 are all part of the response to the increasing demands for printed circuit boards that are not only faster, smaller, and cheaper but also higher-frequency, lower-loss, more temperature tolerant, and higher reliability. In many cases, it will be unique and advanced research coming out of the university system that will help move the industry forward.
