Flex Interconnect Technologies (FIT), a leader in the design, manufacture and assembly of flexible printed circuits, announces that its CEO Chetan Shah recently held a successful presentation for the Silicon Valley Chapter of the IPC Designer Council. The presentation, “Routing in the 3D World,” took place at JAVAD EMS in San Jose, CA.
Mr. Shah presented best practices for routing in the 3D world, including a discussion about designing reliable flexible circuits and the differences between rigid and flex circuits. Additional topics included materials selection – substrates, laminates and cover film, bend area considerations, the identification of stress points, using X-ray tools to locate fractures, and poor solder joints. The presentation was followed by a scheduled facility tour of FIT to give designers a deeper understanding of how flexible circuits are manufactured.
Future presentations are now being planned. For more information, contact FIT at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.fit4flex.com.
