Abstract

Fig. 1 shows a step and repeat method that provides an accurate alignment and attachment of a flex circuit 1 to another circuit 2 or device 3 by creating solder reflowable "touch dots" 4 that maintain attachment and registration. Additional sets of "touch dots" allow for realignment and attachment, by removal of the prior, used set, and reflowing a second set 5.

Interconnection and Alignment Methods for Flexible Cable Attachment

       Fig. 1 shows a step and repeat method that provides an
accurate alignment and attachment of a flex circuit 1 to another
circuit 2 or device 3 by creating solder reflowable "touch dots" 4
that maintain attachment and registration. Additional sets of "touch
dots" allow for realignment and attachment, by removal of the prior,
used set, and reflowing a second set 5.

      Fig. 2 describes a method that provides an accurate alignment
and attachment of a flex circuit 1 to another circuit 2 or device 3
by creating solder reflowable "touch dots" 4 which maintain
attachment and registration. Additional sets of "touch dots" allow
for realignment and attachment, by removal of the prior, used set,
and reflowing the second set 5.  Additional bonding and alignment is
provided with a set of "touch dots" 6 located on the device.
