Flexible circuits are rapidly becoming a preferred interconnection technology for electronic products. Thin, lightweight and formable, they allow designers extra degrees of freedom in creating their products. However, flexible circuits, by their intrinsic nature, require a good deal more understanding and planning than their rigid PCB counterparts to be assured of first pass success. This concise and highly useful book on flexible circuits from ASC was written to provide circuit designers, both new and seasoned, with valuable and important information that will help to assure their first pass success in getting their products to market.
