Abstract

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.
