I-Connect007 Survey Shows Rising Use of Flex and Rigid-Flex

Reading time ( words)

In our recent survey on flex and rigid-flex circuits, majority or 76% of the respondents are currently using flex, rigid-flex and printed electronics in their manufacturing.

Of the 24% who answered no, a strong majority, 70%, are planning to use rigid-flex circuits in the future; 60% said they will use flex circuits; while 30% are also planing to use printed electronics.


To learn more about the survey, and to find out about the biggest problems when it comes to flex and rigid flex circuit design, fabrication, or assembly, check out the July issue of Flex007 Magazine.
