All Flex Launches Online Heater Design Course


Reading time ( words)

All Flex, manufacturer of flexible printed circuits and flexible heaters, has added a flexible heater design course to their online flexible circuit design course. It is a self-paced course that provides technical information to support the engineering community and allow self-paced education about polyimide and silicone rubber flexible heaters.

The heater chapter is an addition to the existing flexible circuit design course sponsored by All Flex and authored by John Michael Pierobon, an electronics industry expert and writer who has also taught numerous technical courses throughout the world. Since the 2012 introduction of the online flexible circuit design course, over 500 visitors have participated.

The free course covers basic design requirements based on thermal needs, calculation examples, mounting methods, and concludes with review questions. All Flex Senior Applications Engineer and resident heater expert, Jamin Taylor encourages people to take advantage of the course, “It is a valuable tool for engineers to increase their knowledge about flexible heater materials, constructions and layout conventions. The format is straightforward so it’s beneficial for the novice but experienced designers will find it helpful as well. It also caters to those who may just need a re-fresher course. Expanding this technical support capability was a natural extension for prospective customers and fits nicely with our Build-A-Heater™ offering.” All Flex introduced Build-A-Heater™ in November 2015; it’s a web-based heater configurator for quick turn heating solutions.

All Flex has been manufacturing flexible circuits for nearly 25 years and added flexible polyimide and silicone rubber heater circuits to their product line in 2008. All Flex also provides HighTemp™ heaters and comprehensive surface mount and thru hole component assembly services.

If you wait for a Tom Peters book the way some people (myself included) wait for a new Stephen King novel, then you’re in luck because Tom finally has a new book and it’s a winner. This book covers a myriad of topics in pure Tom Peters fashion. Who but Peters could bring good old meat and potatoes common sense logic to this fast-moving new world order of social media and techno faux-communications?

PCB Material Toolbox for Today’s 3G and 4G Networks and Future High-Speed Needs in 5G

06/27/2018 | Stig Källman, ERICSSON with Happy Holden, I-CONNECT007
The material toolbox idea first came up when I saw the IPC appendix list for standard 1-ply stack-ups. The idea is to make a very simple bill of materials, specifications and notes, and possibly use the same prepreg/resin in the laminate and in the core.
