Claim of US Patent No. 10,143,080

1. An article, comprising:a flexible electronic component configured for bending along a first dimension and along a second dimension different from the first dimension; and
a flexible support coupled to the flexible electronic component, the flexible support including bending limiting structure configured to constrain bending of the flexible electronic component along the first and second dimensions to a range within a bending tolerance of the flexible electronic component,
wherein the flexible electronic component is slidable relative to at least a portion of the flexible support when the article is bent along the first dimension and when the article is bent along the second dimension, such that the article can have a bending range that is within a bending range of the flexible electronic component.
