What is a Rigid Flex PCB?
Rigid flex printed circuit boards are boards using a combination of flexible and rigid board technologies in an application. Most rigid flex boards consist of multiple layers of flexible circuit substrates attached to one or more rigid boards externally and/or internally, depending upon the design of the application. The flexible substrates are designed to be in a constant state of flex and are usually formed into the flexed curve during manufacturing or installation.
Rigid flex designs are more challenging than the design of a typical rigid board environment, as these boards are designed in a 3D space, which also offers greater spatial efficiency. By being able to design in three dimensions rigid flex designers can twist, fold and roll the flexible board substrates to achieve their desired shape for the final application's package.
More components in a smaller space
Improved signal quality and integrity
Easy to test
Very reliable in harsh environment
Reduces system costs
Our expertise – your profit!
The circuit board is no longer thought of as simply something to hold other elements. In fact, it is part of the system and offers a diverse range of options to integrate different functions. We want to support our customers as early on in the development process as possible so that they can get the most out of our wide-ranging expertise. In this way we can succeed in finding the perfect solution for the specific situation whilst keeping an overview of the entire system.
