Electrification, sensors, infotainment, interior, and exterior lighting, and the potential for autonomous functionality are transforming the automotive vehicle into a sophisticated electronic device on wheels. This increased electronic content demands a circuit technology that can be folded, fit into small spaces, provide unique functionality, and 3D structures allowing for space and weight savings. 
Sheldahl has been providing Flexible Circuits to the automotive industry for almost 60 years. Sheldahl provided the first Flexible Circuit into the ‘65 Ford Thunderbird and from those early instrument clusters to today’s sensor, heaters, and lighting applications, demonstrating a history of circuits that have been driven billions of vehicle miles in the harshest of environments.
