New Molex High-Speed Low-Loss Flex Circuit Assemblies Deploy DuPont™ Pyralux® TK Flexible Circuit Material 

LISLE, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Molex Incorporated today introduced its new High-Speed Low-Loss Flex Circuit Assemblies, made using DuPont™ Pyralux® TK flexible circuit material. The assemblies are ideal for electronic data transmission applications such as servers and high-end computing, storage servers and signal processing.

“As surging data transmission demands push system speeds higher, advanced materials become more critical. Our High-Speed Low-Loss Flex Circuit Assemblies utilize leading-edge technologies from DuPont Circuit & Packaging Materials and Molex to bring customers a unique high-performance solution, with superior signal integrity in digital and high frequency flexible circuit applications.”

“Routing signals within densely packaged datacom, telecommunications, aerospace and defense equipment can be challenging,” said Greg Kuchuris, marketing manager, Molex. “As surging data transmission demands push system speeds higher, advanced materials become more critical. Our High-Speed Low-Loss Flex Circuit Assemblies utilize leading-edge technologies from DuPont Circuit & Packaging Materials and Molex to bring customers a unique high-performance solution, with superior signal integrity in digital and high frequency flexible circuit applications.”

Molex is one of the first manufacturers to incorporate DuPont™ Pyralux® TK flexible circuit material into the volume production of multi-layer flexible circuit constructions. Pyralux® TK is a double-sided flexible copper clad laminate and bonding film system formulated with DuPont™ Teflon® fluoropolymer film and DuPont™ Kapton® polyimide film. It provides exceptional electrical performance for high speed digital and high frequency flexible circuit applications.

The dielectric constant and low-loss capabilities of Pyralux® TK deliver a mechanically flexible construction, tighter bend radii and faster transmission than standard flexible assemblies.

“Molex and DuPont have collaborated closely to integrate Pyralux® TK into the volume production of the new Molex High-Speed Low-Loss Flexible Circuit Assemblies, with exceptional results,” said Prasanna Srinivasan, market development leader, DuPont Circuit & Packaging Materials. “Signal loss can be minimized, which allows increased speeds and design flexibility.”

Molex High-Speed Low-Loss Flex Circuit Assemblies are available with self-coiling or mechanically-assisted coiling, offering options for flexible three dimensional packaging, minimizing insertion loss and providing improved airflow compared to a standard PCB design.
