In a recent I-Connect007 survey on flex circuits, we asked the following question: What are the major drivers causing you to utilize flex circuits? Here are just a few of the replies, edited slightly for clarity.

Jana Carraway, MicroSystems Engineering Inc.: Ability to miniaturize; interconnect density—blind, buried, stacked vias in thin flex.

Dennis Fritz, SAIC Inc.: Flex circuits have lower costs than hand-made wire harnesses; they can go to high speeds; and they have the ability to fit in small spaces, bend to assemble.

Anton van Achteren, Major Electronics: We produce products that our customers require for their products. We must keep up with the market, and if this is something that can lead to new customers, then this is something we must satisfy.
