Maxi-flex® simplifies electronic packaging

One of All Flex’s unique capabilities is in fabricating very large circuits and heaters.   By large, we mean beyond the standard 24” panel length typical of many circuit board suppliers, and in fact we have produced individual parts 40 feet and longer.   We call this...

Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) Connectors

Mating with Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) connectors is an increasingly popular termination for flexible printed circuits. Use of a ZIF connector eliminates the need for a mating connector. The flex end “mates” into the connector, usually located on a rigid board....

Dielectric Covering Options for Flexible Printed Circuits

The circuit traces of a flexible PCB often needs a dielectric covering to selectively protect the traces from shorting against a conductive surface or to prevent select areas from subsequent metal coating or plating operations. The dielectric will have openings that...

Creating the Cutline of a Flexible Circuit

One of the great features of a flexible PCB is that it can come in just about any shape or size. The final shape is defined when the completed circuit pattern is removed from the base substrate. Flex circuits are either fabricated in sheets or in rolls. There are a...
