Flexible PCB

What is Flexible PCB?

Flexible printed circuit boards, also called Flexible PCBs or Flex PCBs.

They are constructed from flexible, high-performance plastic material.Flexible PCB that can be bent or twisted without damaging the circuit.This flexibility allows them to be used in a wide range of applications.

Flexible PCB can be freely bent, wound, and folded, can be arranged arbitrarily according to the space layout requirements, and can be moved and stretched arbitrarily in three-dimensional space, so as to achieve the integration of component assembly and wire connection. The use of Flexible PCB can greatly reduce thae volume of electronic products, which is suitable for the development of electronic products in the direction of high density, miniaturization and high reliability. Therefore, Flexible PCB has been widely used in aerospace, military, mobile communications, laptop computers, computer peripherals, PDAs, digital cameras and other fields or products.
Flex Pcb Benefits
There are some pretty amazing benefits to using flexible PCBs. Some of the advantages of flexible PCBs include the following:
 
Reduced Space and Weight:
Most of the advantages associated with flexible PCBs come from their low volume and weight. In fact, using a flexible PCB instead of a rigid PCB can result in a space reduction of over 50 percent and a weight reduction of 95 percent, while simultaneously maintaining the function and reliability of the circuit.
 
Durability:
The flexibility, reduced weight and reduced number of interconnects in the PCB allows them to handle changing external forces and improve their resistance to shock and vibration.
 
Signal Integrity:
Flexible PCBs work in a wide range of environments, so signals will continue to perform smoothly despite exterior conditions. This improves the PCB’s signal reliability.
Higher Density:
The thin flex layers and smaller parts mean that flexible PCBs are capable of supporting higher circuit densities.
 
Minimized Errors:
Due to the elimination of mechanical connectors and reduced variations in assembly methods, flexible PCBs experience reduced wiring errors.
 
Low Cost:
Because of the fewer assembly steps involved in the creation of flexible PCBs, they tend to be relatively low-cost.
 
Heat Dissipation:
The thinner flex PCB materials allow for a greater surface-area-to-volume ratio, improving heat dissipation.
