All Flex Launches Flexible Circuit Video Library

Reading time ( words)

All Flex has added a library of videos about flexible circuitry that serve as an educational resource for designers, product development engineers, electronic technicians and hardware engineers.

Unlike rigid printed circuit boards, flexible circuits serve more than an electrical function within a device or electronic package and therefore are highly-customized in their material selection, mechanical properties, and overall construction.  With a significantly large number of variations that flexible circuits can be designed to, OEM engineers struggle with understanding the options and how flexible circuits can be utilized to solve problems or to meet key requirements within their unique electronic package. 

Dave Becker, VP of Sales/Marketing, said, “Despite an established level of written documentation available on flexible circuitry, our customers still demand one-on-one education on design principles, options to solve problems, and a general knowledge of flexible circuitry.  By providing a series of videos, our customers can more quickly and easily understand flex circuits instead of trying to filter through a design guide to figure out how to apply characteristics and features to their particular requirements.”

The industry has lacked "how-to" videos that communicate directly to engineers on flexible circuit technologies.  All Flex has utilized the company’s engineers and technical experts to capture and present the information in the videos rather than professionally skilled speakers.  This reinforces its commitment to designers and the engineering community by enabling engineer-to-engineer dialog and communication.

The videos are accessible at  The company will continue to expand and broaden its library over time and also welcomes suggestions and recommendations on additional topics.

All Flex has manufactured flexible circuits for over 25 years and added flexible polyimide and silicone rubber etched-foil heaters to its product line in 2008. All Flex also provides HighTemp™ heaters and comprehensive surface mount and thru-hole component assembly services.
