  • Publication number: 20210084750
    Abstract: A wiring circuit board sequentially includes a conductive layer, an insulating layer, and a shield layer toward one side in a thickness direction. The insulating layer covers the conductive layer and has an insulating opening portion exposing a part of a one-side surface in the thickness direction of the conductive layer, and the shield layer has a recessed portion disposed at the inside of the insulating opening portion and recessed toward the other side in the thickness direction so as to be in contact with the conductive layer. The shield layer sequentially includes an adhesive layer and a main body layer toward one side in the thickness direction. A ratio (Tb/Ta) of a thickness Tb of the main body layer to a thickness Ta of the adhesive layer is 4 or more.
