FlexTech Webinar: Manufacturing a Flexible Version of an Arduino® Microcontroller Board

Learn about how NextFlex® manufactured a flexible Arduino® in this hour-long webinar. 

Flexible Arduino 2 What is an Arduino? It’s an open source microcontroller-based system for automation and IOT applications, used widely for prototyping and has freely available compilers and hardware extension kits. There are many devices that require flexible form factors that would benefit from this developer tool, but currently Arduino is only available in a rigid format.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • The flexible hybrid electronics (FHE) process to convert the rigid Arduino board to its flexible counterpart
  • How the results measured up against a regular Arduino
  • The process steps required
  • How the form factor changes
  • How a standard copper flex process was modified to a new additive FHE approach
  • Experience, insights and Q&A from the audience
