Stretchable electronics – Layout & design

The stretchable circuit carriers can be stretched up to a limit of 20%. This limit decreases depending on the layout and layout shape.

Depending on the application and the required performance, several layout structures are available to achieve the desired functionality. These are shapes that wind over the circuit carrier in zigzag or meander shapes:

As well as the shape itself, the width of the conductor tracks also plays a central role – the wider the conductor tracks, the stiffer the structure.
