A self-protecting electronic circuit may include an energetic substrate comprising an energetic material, a plurality of traces disposed onto the energetic substrate, and at least one surface component couple to the plurality of trace. The self-protecting electronic circuit may optionally include a non-platable insulator disposed on portion of the energetic substrate not having the plurality of traced disposed thereon. The at least one surface component may include an activation mechanism for initiating the energetic substrate. Methods for making a self-protecting electronic circuit include forming an energetic substrate, coating the energetic substrate with an insulator, removing at least a portion of the insulator from the energetic substrate, and disposing at least one trace onto the energetic substrate.
