Flexible Circuit saves space.
August 15, 2002 -
Twisty-Flex(TM) circuit provides the noise reduction of twisted-wire pairs or coax cable in flexible circuit. Two-layer design uses alternating conductors connected between layers of micro-vias, resulting in true twisted-pair construction with total thickness of less than 0.015 in. Wire pair can fit into circuit less than 0.1 in. wide, or integrate with other signal or power conductors in larger or rigid design

Twisted Wire Pair Flex Circuits
Twisty-Flex(TM) circuits from Minco provide the noise reduction of twisted wire pairs or coax cable in a flexible circuit. The two layer design uses alternating conductors connected between layers by micro-vias. The result is a true twisted pair construction with a total thickness of less than 0.015" (0.38 mm). A wire pair can fit into a circuit less than 0.1" (2.5 mm) wide, or integrate Twisty-Flex conductors with other signal or power conductors in a larger flex or rigid flex design.
Twisty-Flex is ideal for integrating high-frequency impedance matched conductors with DC or other signals in a single flex design. Use one or two Twisty-Flex pairs in a double- or multi-layer flex circuit to speed up and error-proof assembly, while meeting the tightest space requirements.
Design ideas include: Signal carriers between antenna and main circuit board; board-to-board jumpers; partially over molded with rubber or epoxy to provide weatherproof signal entrance to
an enclosure; or combined signal and power carrying circuit for reduced component count and faster assembly.
