Type II Double-Sided Flex

Type II Double-Sided Flex

CHARACTERISTICS:
Double-Sided, or Type 2 Flex, is a flex circuit based on two conductive layers of copper that are interconnected through Plated-Through-Holes (PTH’s) or Via’s creating electrically active circuitry on both conductive layers
FEATURES:
Worlds most popular flex circuit design
Ease of manufacturing or assembly
Through holes are
OPTIONS:
Silver shielding can be added for EMI protection
Stiffeners can be added to “ruggedize” connection areas
“Button Plating” or Pads only plating is a method when copper plating a circuit that must maximize it’s flexibility in it’s end application
The ability to plate to a ground plane with one conductor layer is a good cost effective way for stripline impedance
BENEFITS:
Cost effective and light weight
Ease of assembly as circuit 1 and 1,000 are built with the same tooling guaranteeing reproducibility
Military and IPC Specification qualified
