Flexible printed circuits

Flexible printed circuits have become established in recent years as a medium for circuits.

The main users of flexible printed circuits are the technological sectors which need the following characteristics and benefits:

  • Implementation of compact, complex assemblies which minimise size and weight
  • Dynamically and mechanically robust when bent
  • Defined characteristics of the circuit systems on the circuit board (impedances and resistances)
  • Reliability of the electrical connections by minimising the number of connections between the modules
  • Saving connectors and wiring, also cost-saving by lowering the costs for component placement and assembly

Flexible printed circuit boards are now in use throughout the electronics industry. The circuit board is generally installed bent, folded or twisted. Flexible printed circuit boards are primarily used to replace wiring and connectors, and to create configurations and complex geometries that would be impracticable with rigid printed circuit boards.

IMDES CREATIVE SOLUTIONS  offers the following product range:

  • Flexible printed circuit boards based on polyimide
  •  single-sided to multilayer flex
  • For use in dynamic or static applications
  • With SMD population and underfill

    Rigid – Flexible PCBs

    Rigid-flexible printed circuit boards directly combine the advantages of flexible and rigid printed circuit boards. This combination of technologies brings the user a variety of advantages especially in terms of signal transmission, overall size, assembly and stability
    Rigid-flex printed circuit boards means hybrid systems, which combine the characteristics of  rigid and flexible circuit substrates in one product. Whether in medical technology, sensors, mechatronics or in instrumentation, electronics squeezes ever more intelligence into ever smaller spaces, and the packing density increases to record levels again & again. Using flexible  PCBs and rigid-flex printed circuit boards, whole new horizons open up for electronic engineers and designers.

     

    Some of the advantages of this application are:

    • Reduction of weight and volume
    • Defined characteristics of the circuit systems on the circuit board (impedances and resistances)
    • Reliability of the electrical connections due to reliable orientation and reliable contacts as well as savings on connectors and wiring
    • Dynamically and mechanically robust
    • Freedom to design in 3 dimensions

    Rigid-flexible printed circuit boards directly combine the advantages of flexible and rigid printed circuit boards. This combination of technologies brings the user a variety of advantages especially in terms of signal transmission, overall size, assembly and stability..

    IMDES CREATIVE SOLUTIONS  offers the following product range:

    • Printed circuit boards with rigid areas, and flexible areas with reduced numbers of layers
    • Combination of polyimide and FR4, or FR4 and thin laminate
    • Rigid-flexible printed circuit boards, which connect rigid boards without the need for cables or connectors, resulting in better signal transmission
    • With SMD population and underfill
    • All commonly used surfaces available
