Flexible and rigid boards consist of a combination of rigid and flexible boards that are permanently connected to each other.
The primary application of rigid-flexible circuit boards offers the best solution in limited space conditions. The technology offers the possibility to safely connect device components while ensuring polarity and contact stability, and reduces the number of plug and connector assemblies.
Other advantages of PCB rigid-flex boards are dynamic and mechanical stability, the resulting 3-dimensional design freedom, simplified mounting, space savings, and maintenance of uniform electrical characteristics.
The use of rigid and soft boards can reduce the total cost of the final product.
Standardized manufacturing processes following IPC guidelines ensure reliable and economical products with UL certification (UL94 / V-0); the UL logo is available at no cost.
Depending on the application, a complete rigid-flexible board can be fabricated symmetrically with inward-flexible layers or asymmetrically with outward-flexible layers.
