The Power of Collaboration & Integrated Thinking
We’re proud to announce the release of our new ebook, The Power of Collaboration & Integrated Thinking, a piece that explores how companies benefit from collaborating with Minco by embracing the unique benefits we bring to the table: our ability to integrate heaters, sensors, and flex circuits into a single assembly and our uniquely collaborative engineer-to-engineer (E2E) program both help customers achieve total-cost-of-ownership advantages and speed time to market.
Learn About Minco’s Rigid Flex Capabilities
Minco’s Rigid Flex assemblies offer the advantages of both flexible cables and conventional PCBs. The rigid portions allow you to have surface mount SMT components down to 0201 on both top and bottom surfaces within the same region.
Learn About Minco’s Medical Applications
Minco’s heaters, sensors, and flex circuits are designed for critical applications where failure would endanger lives or be costly. In the field of medical analysis, Minco’s components have become the de facto standard for blood analysis, PCR, DNA sequencing, and immunochemistry.
Supply Chain Insights During COVID-19
The rapid spread of COVID-19 has created unavoidable challenges for nearly every industry—halting supply chains and forcing companies to modify workflows.
Case Study: Catheter-Wound Cauterizing Element
A medical device company approached Minco with a flex circuit need. They were looking to connect a heated portion of their device to their power supply.
Minco Offering Expanded Line of SmartHeat SLT™ Heaters
Minco’s SmartHeat SLT™ heaters are one of the most exciting innovations in thermal management available today. SmartHeat is self-limiting, meaning it maintains a setpoint with no sensor or controller needed, using a unique polymer innerlay to regulate the temperature.
Learn More About Minco’s Flex Capabilities
Minco’s Design Guide can be a lot of information, but it can also overwhelm someone who just wants to look up a specification or two. In the case of our Flex Circuit Technology Overview, we’ve distilled some key points and stats into a four-page PDF.
