                              When Fitbit was first developed neither of its creators had PCB design or manufacturing experience, and they immediately ran into major problems. They ultimately wanted a product that comes in a small package, which meant that proper PCB layout was critical for success. Read on to learn more!

                              Medical wearables need to be sleek, unencumbered, and compact; able to collect meaningful medical data with few (or no) wires attached to the patient. This creates demand for flexible board designs. While you’re trying hard to push the limits of space, to use smart materials, and to minimize its footprint, it can be damn annoying when you fall out of a board outline (particularly when dealing with irregular board shapes). Read on to find out how to do this!

                              With wearable technology tracking progress however, fitness suddenly became measurable. Future performance could be compared graphically with past performance, and small, achievable goals could be continuously set and met. This gave people the ability to see exactly what they were hoping to accomplish. Instead of reaching forever for some far-off notion of fitness, people could clearly see the next goal to reach. That inspired people to reach it. Once they had it in hand, they reached for the next goal. How wearable technology really helped people was by giving them hope.

                              Today, it’s essential to investigate thoroughly both the mechanical aspects of a PCB and with the system that it is integrated. You can no longer do one without the other. How has 3D modeling helped designers to investigate the mechanical aspects of a PCB design? Read on to find out.

                              Do you have all the knowledge you need to design not just a proper rigid-flex PCB, but one that’s efficiently optimized for your manufacturing process? Learn how to avoid the 7 most common rigid-flex design mistakes from the manufacturing experts at Sierra Circuits!

                              More and more designers are facing the need to reduce size and cost of the products they design, while increasing density and simplifying assembly. Rigid-Flex circuits (those which incorporate flexible portions between separate rigid sections) are becoming a more common solution. This blog is the beginning of a short series which discusses the materials, fabrication, and design methods for using rigid-flex technology.
