Drive Down the Cost of Flex Circuitry


More than ever, there is a need for OEM’s in most industries to achieve three goals with electronic packaging: 1) reduce cost, 2) reduce environmental impact, and 3) reduce weight. These requirements have renewed the interest in evaluating the opportunity to replace copper circuitry with polymer circuitry. Inch for inch, polymer circuitry on polyester substrates provide dramatic cost reductions when used to replace copper circuitry. Depending on the application, cost savings of 50-90% are possible.
