Application field of Rigid-flex PCB

Rigid-flex PCB is a new type of printed circuit board that combines the durability of rigid PCB and the adaptability of flexible PCB. In all types of PCBs, the combination of rigid and flexible is the resistance to harsh application environments. The strongest, so it is favored by industrial control, medical pcb assembly, and precision equipment manufacturers.

Rigid-flex PCB application field
1. Mobile phone—the application of Rigid-flex boards in mobile phones, such as folding mobile phone hinge,camera Module, keypad and radio frequency module (RF Module), etc. are common.
2. Industrial use—Industrial use includes rigid-flex boards used in industry, military, and medical treatment. Most industrial parts require the characteristics of accuracy, safety, and resistance to soil damage. Therefore, the characteristics required for soft and hard boards are: high reliability, high precision, low impedance loss, complete signal transmission quality, and durability. However, because of the high complexity of the manufacturing process, the output is small and the unit price is quite high.

3. Cars—the use of hard and soft boards in cars, commonly used are the buttons on the steering wheel connected to the motherboard, the connection of the car video system screen and the control panel, the operation connection of the audio or function keys on the side door, and the reversing radar imaging system , Sensors (including air quality, temperature and humidity, special gas regulation, etc.), vehicle communication systems, satellite navigation, rear seat control panels and front-end controller connection boards, vehicle exterior detection systems, etc.

4. Consumer electronic products—among consumer products, DSC and DV are representative of the development of soft and hard boards, and they can be discussed in terms of performance and structure. In terms of performance, the rigid and flexible boards can be three-dimensionally connected to different PCB rigid boards and components.
Therefore, under the same circuit density, the total use area of the PCB can be increased, the circuit carrying capacity can be relatively increased, and the signal transmission limit of the contacts and the assembly error rate can be reduced. On the other hand, since the flexible and rigid board is lighter and thinner, it can bend the wiring, so it is helpful to reduce the volume and reduce the weight.
There are also smart wearables, artificial intelligence, 5G products, etc., all of which are full of soft and hard structures. The above is only a part of the list, not all of them.
The above are part of the application areas of the rigid flex PCB board. I hope it will be helpful to everyone. If you still have any questions, please contact the online customer service. We will have professional staff to answer you.
