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.
One of the primary decisions faced by our customers is whether to employ pads-only or panel plating when designing a flex circuit. You can see the two techniques in the image to theright: Figure A shows a 2-layer flex circuit with pads-only plating, whereas Figure B shows another circuit with panel plating.
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.
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.
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.
If you specify or design flexible printed circuits, you’ll want to check out the latest version of Minco’s Flex Circuit Design Guide. It includes sections on standard design recommendations, material tolerances, value-adds, and manufacturing tips. It’s the perfect resource for working with Minco to build a high-reliability flex circuit.
In today’s competitive world of electronic manufacturing, each generation of product must be lighter and more compact than its predecessor. And not just consumer electronics – industrial, medical, and defense OEMs continually look to shave off inches and pounds.
For more than 60 years, Minco Products has designed and manufactured heating, flex circuit, temperature sensing and instrumentation solutions for some of the world’s most demanding applications.
