Rigid Flexible PCB
Rigid flex circuits have been used in the military and aerospace industries for more than 20 years. In most rigid flex circuit boards, the circuitry consists of multiple flexible circuit inner layers selectively attached together using an epoxy pre-preg bonding film, similar to a multilayer flexible circuit. However, a multilayer rigid flex circuit incorporates a board externally, internally or both as needed to accomplish the design.
Rigid flex PCBs have many advantages over just using rigid or flexible PCBs for certain applications. For one, Rigid + flex boards have a lower parts count than traditional rigid or flexible boards because the wiring options for both can be combined into a single board. The combination of rigid and flexible boards into a single rigid flex board also allows for a more streamlined design, reducing the overall board size and package weight.
Rigid flex circuits combine the best of both rigid boards and flexible circuits integrated together into one circuit. The two-in-one circuit is interconnected through plated through holes. Rigid flex circuits provide higher component density and better quality control.
Rigid flex PCBs are most often found in applications where space or weight is prime concerns. Rigid flex boards are more costly than alternative flex design so ideal application require maximum of three dimensional space, rigid flex is often used in designs that can allow higher costs. The Applications include medical, aerospace and military.
