Of all the devices our clients call on us to make, ultra-miniature flex circuits are among the most challenging. Success often requires spending considerable upfront time with customers to gain a full understanding of their specific requirements as well as to identify risk factors that either they or we may help mitigate before committing to full-scale production. It is not always clear during our initial conversations whether the flex circuit the customer has in mind can even be made — or, if it can be made, whether it can be produced at sufficiently high yield or at low enough cost to be worth the required investment.

Ultra miniature flexible circuits are highly complex devices with some amazing characteristics. Metrigraphics makes circuits with feature sizes ranging from 3 to 10 microns, some of which are so flexible they can wrap around a pencil. Some of our ultra miniature flex circuits have as many as 6 layers (although 6 is not our limit); some can withstand extreme mechanical loads; and some can perform without fault for years in such adverse and critical environments as human body implants.
