Flex circuit designs face challenges similar to rigid PCB designs, but also additional challenges. The nature of a flex circuit is in its ability to bend and flex. This makes flex circuits a mechanical and electrical device and creates a special set of requirements unique to flexible circuitry. Understanding how these requirements interact allows a PCB designer to create a flex circuit that balances the electrical and mechanical features into a reliable, cost-effective interconnect solution.
