Amphenol Printed Circuits Recognizes Panasonic as a Qualified Vendor for Flexible Laminates


Reading time ( words)

Amphenol Printed Circuits has qualified Panasonic’s Felios Flexible Laminates and will now increase usage on new part-numbers. Both Amphenol and Matrix have worked diligently to achieve this qualification milestone over the course of 2019.

Panasonic’s Felios is an advanced adhesive-less copper-clad flex circuit material, designed to meet the demanding high performance and reliability requirements of the Aerospace and Commercial Avionics market segments. Panasonic offers the largest selection of both thin and thick copper foil and polyimide film constructions in the industry.

“Panasonic and Matrix are an integral part of our planned growth in the Flexible Circuits business”, stated Christine Harrington, Managing Director, PCB Operations at Amphenol Printed Circuits. “Matrix is providing the best-in-class flexible materials. I would like to thank Matrix and Panasonic for their efforts to qualify and support Amphenol Printed Circuits”.

“Matrix is delighted to be one of Amphenol’s strategic partners, and our Team is committed to servicing the North American PCB marketplace with Felios, the most reliable and most dimensionally stable flexible circuit materials available”, says Jeff Cassell, vice president of Sales at Matrix.

Decreasing Bend Radius and Improving Reliability- Part II

11/22/2019 | Kelsey Smith, All Flex
Many of the issues that arise when using a flex circuit come from a lack of knowledge about how to properly design one, especially when the circuit is required to bend. Many novices will design a circuit that calls for bending the flex in too tight of a bend radius, which can cause damage to the circuit and lower the reliability of the end product. This series of articles will focus on the seven key aspects to consider when designing for maximum durability and maximum “flexibility”.
