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!

Advantages of Using ZIF Connectors as a Termination Method

03/17/2020 | All Flex
There are many types of connectors and termination methods available when designing a flexible circuit. One of the most common is the zero insertion force (ZIF) connector. The reason why the ZIF connector is so popular is that they eliminate the requirement for an added connector. They create a direct connection from the circuit to the mating connector reducing overall weight and cost. Here are a few general facts about ZIF connectors.

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.
