PCB rigid-flex board

PCB rigid-flex board, that is, rigid-flex PCB board, it is a circuit board that combines flexible and rigid circuit board technology in the application. Most rigid-flex boards are composed of multiple layers of flexible PCB circuit boards, which are attached to one or more rigid boards from the outside and/or from the inside, depending on the design of the application. The flexible substrate is designed to be in a constant deflection state, and is usually formed as a deflection curve during manufacturing or installation.
Rigid-Flex design is more challenging than the design of a typical rigid board environment because these boards are designed in 3D space, which also provides higher space efficiency. By being able to design in three dimensions, rigid and flexible designers can twist, fold and roll up the flexible board substrate to achieve the shape required for the final application packaging.
Rigid and flexible PCB manufacturing applications
Rigid-flex PCB provides a wide range of applications from smart devices to mobile phones and digital cameras. Rigid-flex board manufacturing has been increasingly used in medical devices such as pacemakers to reduce their space and weight. The use of rigid flexible PCB has the same advantages and can be applied to intelligent control systems.

In consumer products, the rigid-flex PCB board not only maximizes space usage and minimizes weight, but also greatly improves reliability, thereby eliminating many needs for solder joints and fragile and fragile wiring that are prone to connection problems. These are just a few examples, but rigid-flex PCBs can benefit almost all advanced electrical applications, including test equipment, tools, and automobiles.
