Several important factors are often neglected or forgotten by engineers and designers with respect to designing for cost‐effective manufacture of the different types of flexible printed circuits (FPCs). This paper discusses the various design features which influence the cost of FPC production, offers layout guidelines and considers the items affecting flexibility. Designing manufacturable products can lead to benefits such as reduced lead times, lower material costs, higher quality and increased yields.
