Introduction to flexible PCB basics
In pursuit of smaller and lighter electronic products, people have developed a compact and lightweight electronic component – flexible PCB. The flexible PCB is mainly made of polyimide or polyester film and is a highly reliable and excellent flexible printed circuit board.
In the 1980s, flexible PCB was widely used in the United States and Europe. With the development of economic technology, flexible PCB is widely used in the world for its unique performance.
Flexible PCB has the characteristics of high wiring density, lightweight and thin thickness. The use of flexible PCB reduces weight and space, because of the need for installation and maintenance, the board needs to have some flexibility, and the flexible PCB can meet the dynamic bending requirements while controlling the impedance and improving the reliability and repeatability of the board.
Because flexible PCB has excellent work efficiency and heat resistance, it is widely used as the core component of all modern electronic products, such as cameras, computers, and peripherals, mobile phones, video and audio equipment, camcorders, printers, satellite equipment. , military equipment and medical equipment.
There are five styles of flexible PCB :
- the single-sided flexible circuit board
- the double-sided flexible circuit board
- the multi-layer flexible circuit board
- the dual-access flexible circuit board
- rigid-flexible circuit board
Nowadays, all major circuit board manufacturers have very mature circuit board production design and technology. According to the specific requirements of customers, we can produce flexible boards with various parameters, complex structures, and shapes. Let customers enjoy higher quality flexible PCB boards.
