Abstract

Single-sided flexible circuits are presently sol- dered directly onto a printed circuit board (PCB) with solder portions that are typically cladded with copper. However, such solder portions may not be sufficiently strong to form reliable connections with the PCB as, conventionally, flexible circuits are thin.
