Maximum Layers of a Flexible PCB Before it is No Longer Flexible

Written by Zachary Walker
Posted on November 29, 2023 at 8:41 AM

At first glance, the answer to the question “How many layers can a flexible circuit have before it can no longer bend?” sounds like a simple, black-and-white answer. However, this answer proves to be more complex than expected and involves a great deal of specifications before it can be answered.

As the 2023 U.S. holiday season rolls into full gear, it’s impossible not to also think about the 2024 Chinese New Year (CNY). Maybe it’s because the U.S. holidays are busy not only at work but personally as well, for many of us, and by the time we catch our breath, the CNY is already on top of us.

Design Principles and Best Practices for Surface Modeling

Written by Darren Casey
Posted on November 7, 2023 at 8:59 AM

The two main categories of 3D modeling can be defined as solid modeling and surface modeling. Solid modeling consists of extruding and cutting away from solid geometric volumes. This is great for subtractive and additive manufacturing methods such as milling and 3D printing.

Adhesives in Flexible Circuit Boards: Types and Their Uses

Written by Zachary Walker
Posted on November 1, 2023 at 8:33 AM

One of the key components in the stack-ups for flexible circuits is adhesives. From bonding coverlays to the surface to adhering stiffeners to rigidize the circuit to creating additional use applications for the circuit, adhesives hold many possibilities and can add another dimension of complexity to flexible circuits.

Multi-layer PCB Manufacturing: Managing Time and Cost

Written by Angie Brown
Posted on October 23, 2023 at 9:13 AM

As I think about the processing of multi-layered printed circuit boards (PCBs), I find it interesting that in the early 1980s, I wouldn’t have dreamed of where we are today in terms of technology. I mean, think about it. Where we are in comparison to then is simply phenomenal.

Pros and Cons of Using Flexible PCBs In Your Application

Written by Zachary Walker
Posted on October 19, 2023 at 8:57 AM

Applications that rely on printed circuit boards (PCBs) to control functions can experience difficulties when having operating components or when designed in slimmed or smaller sizes. Standard rigid circuit boards have to be made in specific sizes and dimensions, which can make it difficult when designing working components that could scrape against and damage the PCB.

The Role of the Battery Management System

Written by Anton Beck
Posted on October 11, 2023 at 8:47 AM

Battery packs contain a multitude of cells that provide the power to the electrical load of a device. Battery chemistries such as lithium-ion can become unstable due to a number of factors. This instability can cause thermal runaway which could lead to an explosion or fire.

How To Overcome Challenges of a Rigid-Flex PCB Design

Written by Zachary Walker
Posted on October 3, 2023 at 9:21 AM

Rigid-flex printed circuit boards (PCBs) are a great solution to combine the benefits of both rigid and flex PCBs, but as a result, can accumulate the design challenges of both types alongside creating their own challenges along the way.

Best Software Tools for Making Custom Cable Assembly Drawings

Written by Steven J Goodman
Posted on September 25, 2023 at 9:04 AM

In the modern engineering landscape, computer-aided design (CAD) serves as an invaluable resource for crafting complex systems like custom cable assemblies. Offering an all-encompassing three-dimensional perspective of the assembly, CAD provides engineers with the ability to experiment and iterate on their designs much more efficiently than ever before.
