Flexible electronic circuits are a light-weight, cost effective alternative to circuit boards, widely used because of their dynamic range of motion. How- ever, in many applications ofthese 'flex' circuits, the range of motion in some areas needs to be limited or located in order to: reduce wear or cracking at a weak joint of the circuit, limit unnecessary stresses at solder joints or components, and/or produce an effective fold or bend line along an axis.
