Words of Advice: Flex Design and Manufacturing Training


Reading time ( words)

In a recent survey, we asked the following question: Where do your technologists acquire training or expertise regarding flexible circuits? Here are just a few of the answers, edited slightly for clarity.

  1. We have 30 designers and maybe 1/3 of them have flex design experience. We don't have structured training for flex, but designers do share with other team mates to help.
  2. We work closely with our vendors to design the system.
  3. Training on the job.
  4. Learning by asking other staff members.
  5. Flex manufacturers generally help in the layer stack-up definition, and in design rules optimization.
