Session Overview

Title:  Designing Flex and Rigid-Flex Applications

Duration: 90 minutes

Abstract:   Of course they bend and can be formed, but did you know that flexible circuit boards are lighter weight, more durable and more cost effective than a rigid board or wiring harness?  Flex circuit boards offer numerous benefits to the ever-growing variety of applications in the demanding military, medical, aerospace and industrial control industries.

Presenter: Circuits, LLC President, Adeodato Vigano
