Custom high quality cost-effective Rigid-Flex Printed Circuit Boards Making

Short Description:

Though they offer greater spatial efficiency and cost, weight savings, rigid-flex PCBs require different design rules and can be more challenging than rigid boards both for designer and manufacturers. PCB ShinTech is experienced with helping many of our customers bring their complex rigid-flex printed circuit boards design to market. Save yourself time and safeguard your budget when you contact PCB ShinTech today to discuss your upcoming project. You’ll experience, rapid quote response, flexible lead times, technical support, and price-to-value for rigid-flex solutions.



Product Detail

Product Tags

As the name implies, rigid-flex PCBs are the composition of rigid circuit boards and flexible circuit boards that are permanently connected to one another. Rigid-flex are a type of high-adaptability PCBs that use both flexible and rigid-board construction in an application.

Due to the advantages that Rigid-Flex circuit boards have, they are used in an even wider range of applications including:

● Consumer electronics

● Contract manufacturing

● High-speed digital development

● Instrumentation

● LEDs and lighting

● Power electronics

● RF and microwave equipment

● And other industrial applications

Flex-Rigid PCB (1)

The proper application of Rigid-Flex circuit boards offers optimum solutions for difficult, limited space conditionsThis technology offers the possibility of a secure connection of device components with the assurance of polarity and contact stability, as well as a reduction in plug and connector components. Additional advantages of Rigid-Flex circuit boards are dynamic and mechanical stability, the resulting 3-dimensional freedom of design, simplified installation, space savings, and maintenance of uniform electrical characteristics. Use of Rigid-Flex circuit boards can reduce the total cost of the final product.

Though they offer greater spatial efficiency and cost, weight savings, rigid-flex PCBs require different design rules and can be more challenging than rigid boards both for designer and manufacturers. PCB ShinTech is experienced with helping many of our customers bring their complex rigid-flex printed circuit boards design to market.

A standardized manufacturing process following IPC guidelines guarantees a reliable and simultaneously an economical product, which is ISO9001, TS16949 and UL certified.

Technical options for Rigid-Flex PCBs

Most rigid-flex circuits are multi-layered. A rigid-flex PCB can include one/several flex boards and rigid boards, which are connected through internally/externally plated-through holes.

Layout Recommendations for Rigid-Flex PCBs

  Circuit Construction     

   Bend Radius Calculation

  1 Layer (single-sided)

   Flex Thickness x 6

  2 Layer (double-sided)

   Flex Thickness x 12

  Multi-Layer

   Flex Thickness x 24

Other Design Tips Include:

● Avoid 90˚ bends whenever possible.

● Gradual bends are always safer.

● Bend radius is measured from the inside of the bend.

● Conductors running through a bend need to be perpendicular to the bend.

● Use curved traces instead of traces with corners.

● Traces should be perpendicular to your bend.
