Rigid Flex PCB Design And Assembly
Rigid-flex PCB technology reduces weight and saves space. Today’s small and lightweight consumer electronics are often built using rigid-flex technology, however, a successful rigid-flex PCB design can face many challenges.
Rigid-flex printed circuit boards are circuit boards that combine flexible and rigid circuit board technologies. Most rigid-flex boards consist of a multilayer flexible circuit substrate connected externally and/or internally to one or more rigid circuit boards, depending on the design of the application. Flexible substrates are designed to be in a constant state of bending and often form a bending curve during manufacture or installation.
Designing rigid-flex is more challenging than designing in typical rigid board environments because the boards are designed in 3D space, providing greater space efficiency. By being able to design in three dimensions, designers can twist, fold and roll flex board substrates to obtain the desired shape for the final application package.
