Flexible printed circuit. A printed circuit (more usually on a rigid board) consists of lines of a metal conductor printed on an insulating material base. The metal lines form a circuit that connects electronic components and so forms a functioning device. Flexible circuits, like this one, are used where space is limited, such as in cameras and palmtop computers, but where complex circuits are needed.
