Technologies to connect humans and their environment
|A thin FPC that can be bent into any form is used for the hinge area connecting the display and key switch section of a cell phone. As demand for lightweight and thin types of cell phones is accelerating, the FPC in the hinge area must be able to be installed in a thin and lean space and have a long lifetime for repetitive bending. We build prototypes of such FPC and begin the mass-production after designing patterns and selecting materials that are appropriate for complicated bending modes such as crank bending, α shape bending and sliding to respond to smaller and thinner shapes of new cell phones.
In addition, we propose optimal solutions by combining various options such as mounting electronic components like connectors and materials to shield electromagnetic noise whenever the necessity arises.
