Candor is Breaking Boundaries with Flex-Core Boards


Reading time ( words)

Candor Industries has successfully manufactured 0.5-mil flex-core boards with 0.5-oz copper and 4-mil plated vias.

Sunny Patel, Candor’s technical sales manager, remarked about the accomplishment, "We are pushing the limits on our flex manufacturing, going for much thinner substrates and different material stiffeners."

Thinner material processing allows for better real estate savings for Candor’s flex customers when fitting into smaller packaging. By working together with Candor, developing these types of prototypes will allow for faster lead times with better cost savings down the road.

"Customers need hard, but thin, materials in thin core applications. We’ve found that stainless steel is a good fit for this and we can easily provide this service in-house using our unique flex processing,” said Patel.

Conventional board shops may have trouble getting tooling holes in stainless without CNC subcontracting. Due to their continual investments in the needs of their customers, Candor is able to provide detailed cutting of stainless sheets in-house.

If you’re like me, you’ve probably heard of 5G, but you may not understand what all the fuss is about. First, 5G simply means fifth-generation mobile networks. The best way to understand what 5G is about is to understand all the other Gs, like 3G and 4G (we rarely hear about the early Gs!).
