Order Flex Modules from us or do it yourself with our gerber files in Github.
Design your own PCB using Flex Modules as components or use our demo Flex Module projects.
Get supplies needed for etching flexible PCB. Copper clad Kapton/polyimide can be bought on eBay relatively easily. Sheet or roll will work fine. Our demos only require single sided.
Our hand etching post on medium explains the chemicals required and we recommend glass containers. There are specialized etching containers available.
