Top 10 Applications for Flexible Heaters

Written by Chris Perry
Posted on January 29, 2020 at 8:45 AM

Around the world, different industries have applications and equipment where there will be changing temperatures, humidity, or moisture that can impact how a component operates or processes signals. There may also be instances where a product needs to be at a certain temperature so that it may be processed, such as a liquid chemical or food product that has to be at the right temperature, so that it will be fluid enough to be packaged into containers.

Challenges in Dynamic Flexible Circuit Board Design

Written by Paul Tome
Posted on January 21, 2020 at 9:43 AM

Dynamic flexible circuit boards have the capability of solving many interconnect and packaging challenges in designs that require repetitive motion. They allow for extremely high-density interconnects while consuming a very small amount of space. However, these applications have a different set of design rules than that of a “one-time” or “bend-to-fit” static application.

There was a time when the PCB manufacturing industry included a fair number of bucket shops, so called because much of their processing was done in small portable tubs filled with etchants, solvents, and other mysterious solutions. They cranked out very basic, low-cost, low-complexity PCBs, using equipment and methods that were questionable at best. Their business and environmental practices were often similarly questionable.

Understanding Your Custom Cable Assembly Testing Requirements

Written by Steven J Goodman
Posted on November 20, 2019 at 9:57 AM

Custom cable assemblies are used everywhere in a variety of applications, supporting a diverse customer base. These custom cable assemblies may transmit power, data, or other high-fidelity signals during their operation, and in some applications may be used for life-saving or mission critical equipment. These cables must be reliable enough to continuously transmit signals without failure, and be strong enough to withstand certain mechanical stresses, and durable enough to withstand the environment they will operate within.
