Rigid-flex PCB

What is Rigid-Flex PCB: Rigid-Flex printed circuit boards are boards using a combination of flexible and rigid board technologies in an application. Most rigid flex boards consist of multiple layers of flexible circuit substrates attached to one or more rigid boards externally and/or internally, depending upon the design of the application. The flexible substrates are designed to be in a constant state of flex and are usually formed into the flexed curve during manufacturing or installation. Benefits of Rigid-Flex PCBs:Space requirements can be minimized by applying 3D;By removing the need for connectors and cables between the individual rigid parts, the board size and overall system weight can be reduced;By maximizing space, there is often a lower count in parts;Fewer solder joints assure higher connection reliability; It is possible to increase the complexity of mechanical designs, which also improves the degree of freedom for optimized housing solutions.
