The flex files

THE FLEX FILES

One of the great aspects of flex circuit design is its ability to adapt to multiple needs and go places where traditional circuitry cannot. Recently, GC Aero was approached by Bill Hagey of Pisces Design to help him with flexible circuit technology for his fourth generation “Crittercam”-a video and data recorder used in marine research that is used to track the migration paths and daily habits of seals and sealife. The device demands a high degree of engineering and precision-it’s actually attached to a seal to capture video and oceanographic data and must work under a variety of environmental conditions. GC Aero explained the benefits and limitations of different methods of attaching the camera’s rigid board structure together using flex circuits. Once a single method was identified, GC Aero helped recommend the proper material to provide both a rugged flex circuit that was still flexible enough to fold into the limited space of his tracking device. We talked with Bill recently and he was very happy with our service-having used the Crittercam to help conduct research for National Geographic on a recent trip to Antarctica. The modified device worked very well – and he is looking forward to working with us again on Crittercam V5
