Standard Flex

Single-Sided

When to Use
  • Dynamic flexing applications
  • Unusual folding and forming applications
  • Installation/service applications/repair
  • Limitations on space/thickness
  • Installation/service flexing
Features
  • Very thin construction under .004″-.008″ (.10mm-.20mm)
  • 1 conductive layer
  • Reverse bared or back bared pads
  • Supported and unsupported finger areas

Double-Sided

When to Use
  • Required when circuit density and layout can not be routed on a single layer
  • Ground and power plane applications
  • Used for shielding applications
  • Dense surface mount assembly
Features
  • Component assembly available on both sides
  • Two conductive layers
  • Can be converted into a Sculptured Flex

Multi-Layer

When to Use
  • Required when circuit density and layout cannot be routed on a single layer
  • Ground and power plane applications
  • Used for shielding applications
  • Dense surface mount assembly
  • Increased circuit density
  • Controlled impedance with shielding
Features
  • Up to eight conductive layers
  • Use of resistive foils like Cupronickel and Constantan possible
  • There are unbonded regions to increase flexibility
  • EMI/RFI shielding
