Home » Trackwise-led consortium successful in Clean Sky application

Trackwise are pleased to announce that their application to Clean Sky Call 8 (supported by Rogers BVBA, Systems Engineering & Assessment Ltd and Victrex Manufacturing Ltd) for “Demonstration of a large, high temperature, flexible printed circuit board” has, subject to negotiation, been successful.

This Project aims, through trials of flexible laminates manufactured from existing and brand new advanced polymers, to progress the temperature at which a flexible printed circuit can operate from the current state of the art maximum of 200°C into the desired range of 260°C (minimum) up to 400°C (target).

The Project aims to develop the materials and manufacturing processes that enable this high temperature performance in a large format, such that the required overall harness length of 5m can be implemented in a single piece multilayer printed circuit.
