Soldering Flexible Circuits

The most common methods for component attachment on flexible circuits and rigid printed circuit boards involve soldering. The basic principles for soldering are the same for both flex and hard board, but soldering components to flexible circuits involves certain...

How to Avoid Trace Fracturing on Flexible Circuits

Flexible circuits are ideal for applications that require bending and twisting. This flexibility gives designers options that are not available with the typical printed circuit board. This does not mean that a flexible copper trace will never crack, as like most...
