Reading time ( words)

American Standard Circuits has just released The Printed Circuit Designer's Guide to… Flex and Rigid-Flex Fundamentals, part of the newly launched I-Connect007 eBook series. Anaya Vardya, President and CEO, and Dave Lackey, Director of Business Development, co-authored this guide which is meant to help PCB designers and engineers to design and layout the most efficient, productive and economical flex and rigid-flex boards possible. 

“We found that when we are working with companies who need flex and rigid-flex PCBs, the best course of action is to work closely in partnership to ensure they receive the best quality and value,” Lackey said. “We want to make sure our customers get exactly what they need for their end-products the first time around, and this book is another step to helping them do that.” 

Vardya added, “This guidebook is based on the many conversations we have had with our customer partners, helping them to gain a complete understanding of this technology. We also consider this our gift, American Standard Circuits’ gift to the industry. This unique guidebook will be available to everyone through a free download on our eBook website.” 

This eBook has something for everyone.  In addition to guidance on key callouts, design considerations and material sets for optimum manufacturability, there are plenty of do's and don’ts for fabricators, cost drivers for OEMs, and key information on data package requirements for contract manufacturers. 

The Printed Circuit Designer's Guide to… Flex and Rigid-Flex Fundamentals is a must-read for anyone using flex and rigid-flex technology.
