Important Points to Remember about Designing of the Flex Circuits

The basic characteristic of flex circuits is that they can be light, dense or tough. But there are some stark differences between the conventional rigid circuits and this variety of circuits as it should be supple. While designing such circuits certain necessary factors like the material needed to build, framework of the circuit, degree of bending, frequency of flexes, tightness of the bends etc should be clearly kept in mind.

The most important aspect to know about the designing of the flex circuits is the neutral-bend axis. It is an imaginary plain within the circuit where either of the compression or tension forces are absent during the circuit flexes. The outside parts of the bend always experience a tensile force which can break the circuit and causing a lot of problems in its working. The inner parts feel a compression force which may have the same effect. Bend angle is another factor to keep in mind during the making of the flex circuits. The bend angle and the compression and tension forces are proportional to each other. The maximum tolerable bend angle is 90 degree. During installation, the angle may exceed the permissible level by mistake but the circuit which is flexed, deflexed multiple times should be within the limit. Bending should not be done manually and rather via tool to eliminate this problem.

As the flex circuits become thicker, there are higher chances of it getting damaged while flexing. Thus unwanted thickness should be shunned. Here lies a catch that excess thinness of the circuit will cause other problems related to mechanical or electrical performances. The bend ratio is the ratio of the bend radius to circuit thickness..
