Flex and Rigid Flex PCB

Flexible Circuit Boards Manufacturer

Flex and Rigid Flex, Flexible circuit board manufacturers make Flex PCBs (Flexible Printed Circuit Boards) or printed circuit boards that are bendable, either bent once as they are being installed like those in a miniature camera, or bent multiple times (even continuously) like those in an inkjet printer.

Flex PCBs can be single-side, double-side, or multi-layer. They can have stiffeners to provide areas of non-flexing, or they can be part of a rigid-flexible assembly to allow a rigid PCB to be bent on assembly or PCB Assembly.

Flex PCB Advantages

Flexible Printed Circuit Boards have advantages over rigid PCBs, ribbon cable, and discrete wiring:

  • Reduction in overall package size/weight.
  • Fewer assembly errors.
  • Increased reliability.
  • Increased control of impedance/inductance.
  • Improved heat dissipation.
  • Allows for a 3-dimensional packaging scheme.
  • Improves the appearance of the package.

Flex PCB Issues

In addition,this prevents damage to both the connections and the Flex PCB.

Flexible PCBs, by their nature, are made to odd shapes; they aren’t a convenient rectangle. After the Flex PCB is manufacture, it has to be route, or skive, to shape it to fit. To make sure that the edges of the circuit traces are not going to be damage in the process of routing, flexible circuit board manufacturers take care in the layout and design stages to keep the circuit traces back from the edge.

In this paragraph,When there will continuous or dynamic flexing of the circuit material moreover, special considerations are need. However, On multi-layer Flex PCBs, therefore flexible circuit board manufacturers take into account number of layers while making sure that after all conductors will not be fatigue when the PCB is flex.

Flexible print circuit boards from RUSH PCB are design and fabricate to the highest quality standards.
