Single-sided flex circuits offer unmatched flexing ability and ease of design, especially in applications that demand repetitive movement of the interconnected system or sub assemblies. In many cases, single-sided flex can be used to create a cleaner, better-organized system than one that uses wiring harnesses. The leads of single-sided flex circuits are fixed in position thereby making it possible to dramatically reduce assembly errors related to improperly wired terminations.
Benefits of Single-sided Flex Circuits
- Increased durability when used in dynamic applications
- Minimizes interconnect errors to provide higher reliability and reduced assembly cost
- Can mount all component types – through hole, surface mount, and wire bonding
- Easy to design and quick to manufacture

Reliable Quality and Consistency
Maximum flexibility endurance is achieved by designing a balanced construction with the copper at the midpoint of the circuit thickness.
