80 DESIGN007 MAGAZINE I JULY 2020 Flex007 Interview by Barry Matties I-CONNECT007 Joe Fjelstad has been an innovator in flex- ible and rigid-flex technology for four decades. About 10 years ago, I-Connect007 helped Joe produce an online workshop on flex technol- ogy based largely on his book Flexible Circuit Technology, which was first published in 1994 and is now heading into its fifth edition. In this online video course, Joe offers a primer on flexible circuits, covering everything from the history of this technology through the most cutting-edge technologies. Now, Joe is updating this workshop to make it current with today's flex technologies and processes. In this interview, Joe explains what attendees will learn in the "new and improved" seminar, as well as his drive to continue shar- ing his wealth of knowledge with the young flex technologists of today. Barry Matties: Joe, thanks for joining us today. Around 2010, we worked with you on your first online flex course. Please give us an overview of the course and what your intent was when you created it. Joe Fjelstad: First of all, thanks for being so supportive of this cause for the last decade. For years, I was going out and doing live seminars on flex technology. Live seminars cause one to have to get on a plane and travel somewhere. It takes a lot of time, and much of it is not terri- bly productive. For me, it's really about getting information out in a very efficient way, and Joe Fjelstad Updates His Online Flex Workshop Joe Fjelstad
