Minco has been building flex circuits for our customers for decades and we’ve encountered countless challenges along the way. Some of these pitfalls are encountered during the design process, others involve problems with documentation, and still others are mechanical issues with the design.
Sensor leads often live in pretty tough neighborhoods. Physically, they may have to negotiate tight corners, sharp edges, vibration, and impacts of various sorts. Electrically, they may be surrounded by all sorts of components and wiring operating at significantly higher voltages than the sensors.
In today’s competitive markets, manufacturers are always looking for ways to cut costs, slash time to market, and improve product performance. But while component buyers are price sensitive, they also look at measures like total cost of ownership, reliability, performance, and customization.
The marketing team at Minco is excited to share our latest project: The Engineer’s Corner podcast. We sat down with five experts to discuss one of our most fascinating products: SmartHeat SLT™ self-limiting heaters.
During Minco’s 62 years of operation, we have come to master a diverse — but related — set of competencies. Our Temperature Sensing and Control Solutions team makes sensors and transmitters. Our Thermal Solutions group builds heaters, and Flex makes circuits.
Minco’s Thermal Solutions business unit serves critical Medical, Military, and Aerospace customers, building components for systems too critical to be allowed to fail. We are proud of being called on to supply satellites, military aircraft, and medical analyzers with products accurate and predictable enough to serve these life-dependent applications.
While flexible printed circuits often save money in the long term over traditional wire circuits and PCBs, they are subject to many up-front expenses that might potentially impact the bottom line. This blog post discusses a number of factors that might affect final project cost.
