Reading time ( words)

Matrix Electronics, North America’s leading quick turn supplier for raw materials to the printed circuit market announced that the Panasonic Felios R‐F705S LCP flex product line has been expanded to now include 5 and 6 mil thick LCP materials.

Since the introduction of Panasonic’s Felios LCP materials customers and designers have been requesting thicker materials to support new RF and 5G designs requirements and to simplify the stack‐up of these part designs during fabrication. The newly available 5 and 6 mil LCP materials are available with the specialty EC low loss copper foil cladding in 9, 12, and 18µm. These materials are in stock for purchase, testing, and evaluation. Please contact Matrix customer service for additional information. 

Bob Berg, Vice President of Business Development adds: “The demand for LCP flex circuit materials continues to grow to support RF and 5G designs. In addition, the chemical resistance and low moisture absorption of these LCP materials make them highly suitable for many new medical sensor and equipment applications. Matrix is delighted to be the only supplier of LCP materials in North America and like our other circuit materials the Felios LCP line is supported with a fully stocked inventory.”

All Flex Discusses Merger and New Medical Applications

11/19/2021 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
I recently spoke with Jamin Taylor, vice president of sales and marketing at All Flex Flexible Circuits in Minnesota. We discussed the company’s recent merger with Printed Circuits Inc., and some creative new flex applications, including flexible heaters and catheters for the medical field. As Jamin explains, "It’s always interesting to see different technologies amongst different companies. We’re working on a few new applications and products, like being able to do some fine lines and flex materials, but with large format, a longer format than usual. Some of their capabilities with lasering and fine features really help with our long flex capability; when we merge the two, we see a new market being created for that technology."

With Flex, Sometimes You Gotta Break the Rules

Sometimes in life, we need to break the rules. For example, in junior high I had a curfew but to have my first kiss, I had to break curfew. I got grounded, but it was worth it! My last article was about reasons to follow IPC design and inspection rules. This time, we are discussing instances where, due to complex requirements, customers are not always able to follow the rules. I will also discuss some design options that will hopefully keep you from “getting grounded.”
