Sierra Circuits’ Weekly Roundup: Robots & The Semi-Additive Process
Industry News and Updates
Rigid-Flex Case Study
Flex and Rigid-flex printed circuit board designs have different design and manufacturability rules than traditional PCBs. Flexible circuits are lightweight, durable, and easy to install. From tips and charts to sample stackups, this guide will explain how to design a flex board that fits all your requirements.
Sales and Marketing Director Amit Bahl wrote a blog post for EETimes, where he discussed the advantages in using the semi-additive process. This process can cut trace/space in half, allowing boards to have trace width and spacing as fine as 1.25 mils.
