How Are Rigid-Flex PCBs Made?

Rigid-Flex PCBs are made by combining rigid and flexible PCBs to incorporate the best features of both PCB types. Rigid side brings in proper component anchoring, high component density, compact component assembly, and higher-layer count to the mix. In contrast, the flex side offers overall circuit...

What is Turnkey PCB Assembly?

Many engineers are capable of preparing their own PCB assemblies. From inception (design) to the final product (finished PCB assembly), PCBs can be fabricated in-home using some DIY methods. But only until the PCB design is very simple. At home, there is a hard limit to how fine a hole you can make,...

What is HDI Flex PCB

Flex PCBs offer fantastic flexibility and diversity to circuits. But there are certain limits to how much you can achieve with a simple flex alone. Designers and fabricators are trying to push the boundaries of flex, but it’s still a work in progress. One of the major milestones in achieving further...

What is Circuit Board Assembly?

A circuit board or a printed circuit board is an integral part of every electronic device. The efficiency, integrity, and robustness of the circuit board itself can have a significant impact on the life and performance of the electronic device it’s the part of. This is why, from inception, conceptualization,...

What is A Rigid-Flex PCB?

Conventionally, PCBs were nothing more than hard boards with holes to anchor and sold components. These were the forefathers of what we now call a rigid PCB. Now, circuits have gotten way more complicated, dense, durable, and flexible. Owing to the compactness and high-quality circuitry needs of the...

Price Considerations for Flexible Circuit Design

Flex circuits are becoming increasingly popular. They are light, mechanically flexible, and allows for 3D designing. This makes up for the design complexity and price considerations they come with. But understanding the factors that drive the cost of a flex circuit may help you control it. Flex Circuit...

How to Reduce the Cost of Your Flex Circuit

Flexible PCBs and Flex circuits have revolutionized the field of electronics ever since their inception. Not only did they made it possible to create electronic circuits of dynamic nature (circuits that need to bend constantly), but they also allow designers much more freedom in design, since flex...
