Abstract

Disclosed is a method that customizes a generic flexible circuit design for specific connector applications. For ease of precious metal plating, all contact pads are electrically common in the generic design. The customizing process then isolates the circuits. As an additional feature, good electrical performance is achieved in a single layer flexible circuit.
