THIS IS THE second and final part of the series covering flex circuit
Graphic will feature an assortment of complex Rigid, Rigid Flex, Flex Circuit
and Flex Heater products for the Medical, Military, Aerospace, Automotive and Consumer industries.
Polyimide dissipates heat quicker, so the flex circuit
requires less cooling.
In my 30-plus years of flex circuit
design, I cannot point to a single application where a pad fillet caused a failure, but I can point to dozens of occasions where the lack of pad fillet did cause a failure.

Corp, a unit of US circuit products and thermal solutions provider Vulcan Electric Co, said today it had struck a deal to take over New Hampshire-based sector player JETI Testing LLC.
A flex circuit
is made from a flexible polymer film laminated to a thin sheet of copper that is etched to produce a circuit pattern.
A raw or unpackaged silicon chip is mounted directly on to a metallic heat sink using an adhesive and is then attached to the flex circuit
using aluminium wedge bonding.
Two flex circuits
connect the LCD board to the main board, and a third flex circuit
connects the IR sensor.

QUESTION: I NEED a flex circuit
for my device, but I have never designed one before.
The eight-page guide, Critical Components for Medical Diagnostic and Implant Applications, recommends ways engineers can save weight and space when they incorporate heater, flex circuit
and temperature sensor designs into their medical diagnostic and implantable device components.
But what if you have a more complicated flex circuit
that does require some netlist capability?
