All About Flex: Design and Construction Features that Can Cause Trace Fracturing in a Flexible Circuit
Flexible circuits are used in applications requiring millions of flex cycles. But this does not suggest they never experience failures due to flex life. In fact, occurrences of performance issues as the result of fractured traces have been experienced in a variety of applications. Solutions are often the result of design, construction, and feature location modifications.

EIPC’s Winter Conference in Lyon, France: Day 2 Review
The first day of the conference had started and ended in the dark—a long and technically intense day! After a convivial conference dinner and a good night’s sleep we were back on the bus, this time in daylight at the slightly later time of 8:00 a.m., for the journey from downtown Lyon back to Alstom’s conference facility in Villeurbanne, and it wasn’t raining. In fact, there was even some sunshine later in the day!

Cross Border Deals: What to Look for and How to Manage
My firm has been approached by foreign firms several times this year and in 2017 who want to acquire PCB, PCBA, or other electronics companies in North America.

Beyond Design: Ground Bounce
Ground bounce, or more precisely, supply bounce, is the voltage produced between two points in the power delivery path. It is fundamentally related to the total inductance of the current path and shared return paths and the instantaneous surge current delivered by the power supply. Once again, we find that inductance is the covert enemy of the high-speed PCB designer. It is the primary cause of simultaneous switching noise and electromagnetic radiation. As edge rates continue to increase, the impact of intrinsic electrical characteristics become more pronounced. In this month’s column, Barry Olney looks at supply bounce and how to minimise the impact on high-speed digital circuits.

Stanford Researchers Develop Stretchable, Touch-Sensitive Electronics
Of the many ways that humans make sense of our world – with our eyes, ears, nose and mouth – none is perhaps less appreciated than our tactile and versatile hands. Thanks to our sensitive fingertips, we can feel the heat before we touch the flame, or sense the softness of a newborn’s cheek.

Stretchable Electronics a ‘Game Changer’ for Stroke Recovery Treatment
Developed in the lab of Northwestern University engineering professor John A. Rogers, in partnership with Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, the sensor is the latest in Rogers’ growing portfolio of stretchable electronics that are precise enough for use in advanced medical care and portable enough to be worn outside the hospital, even during extreme exercise.

Robotic Crystals that Walk n’ Roll
Scientists at Waseda University may have come a step closer to innovating soft robots to care for people. Its material, however, is something you may have never expected.
