Flex Expert Joe Fjelstad Releases Nine-Part Flexible Circuit Technology Workshop Series

Reading time ( words)

I-Connect007 is proud to announce the release of a new video workshop series presented by subject-matter expert Joe Fjelstad. Divided into nine sessions, this series provides a comprehensive view of the structures, applications, materials, and manufacturing processes of flexible circuits.

If you’re engaged in designing or using electronic interconnections, flex is arguably one of the most versatile interconnection technologies available.  

Joe said, “There are many reasons to use flex circuits, and it isn’t just because they’re flexible; they’re also thin, lightweight, and high-performance. They allow you to do very fine-line features, which are becoming increasingly important. Flex circuits have a lot of attributes that make them very attractive.”

This is a must-watch series for those who are new to the industry, as well as experienced engineers who want to learn more about the benefits of flex circuits and how to better incorporate them into their products.

Each of the nine workshops can be viewed in about 20 minutes and covers a specific aspect of flex technology. You can get full access to the entire series now by registering here.

We hope you enjoy Joe Fjelstad’s flexible circuit technology workshop series, sponsored by American Standard Circuits, a proud supporter of online education.
