In a recent blog post, we touched on the rapidly-expanding global market for the Internet of Things. We also emphasized the need for companies in this space to act quickly if they hope to take advantage of the emerging opportunities.
Fitness wearables and medical devices—including both wearable medical devices and implantable medical devices—have become increasingly popular and, as our blog recently highlighted, these markets are predicted to grow in coming years.
Our recent blogs have focused on the role flexible printed circuit boards have played in the health care sector. Specifically, we’ve taken a closer look at the increasing popularity of health-related wearables, medical devices, and radio frequency identification technology.

Wearable technology has become an increasingly vital device category in the last few years, thanks in large part to the popularity of fitness trackers such as Fitbit, Jawbone, and smartwatches like the Apple Watch and Pebble. Continue reading “An Inside Look at Flex PCBs for Wearable Technologies”
A successful flexible PCB often depends on two things: the manufacturability of your design, and your relationship (e.g., level of collaboration) with your supplier. Continue reading “Avoiding Common Flex PCB Errors and Designing for Success”
Testing is an essential step in ensuring the integrity of your flexible printed circuit boards. While there are many possible approaches to verifying the quality of both your raw materials and your finished products, guidelines from the Association Connecting Electronics Industries (IPC), such as IPC-6013, IPC-2223, and IP-FC-234 and their respective successors, are a good place to start.
