Technique for mounting LED on single layer FPC

   Disclosed is a new method to mounting LED on single layer FPC. This technique
enable to mount electrical parts on back side of the pattern.

Conventionally LED on FPC must be other side of
connector when it is used board to board type. Then
usually it is used dual layer FPC to locate LED on
FPC. The way of this invention make possible use
single layer FPC in this case. This invention means
single layer FPC behave as partly dual layer one by
folding back near the connector. The application of
this method as specific case is indicated as Fig.1
and Fig.2.

Fig.1 is required position between the portion of
lightening and connector on planar.

Fig.2 is an application of this invention.
