One of the areas that wearable devices are making a huge impact is in the medical industry where small, unobtrusive “patches” have replaced monitors that were worn on the patient’s belt or required a shoulder strap. Not only has the quality and variety of monitored data improved, but importantly, the patches are easily covered by clothing, protecting the patient’s privacy.

    14 June 2016

    Are you thinking of using a rigid/flex format for a PCB? If so, the first and most obvious answer to the question ‘why?’ is to make use of the flexibility and to permit movement between two conventional boards – even if the movement is limited to providing vibration tolerance.
