Rigid-Flex PCB is combined with rigid PCB and flexible PCB. The flexible portion can be bent, folded or flexed while the rigid portion provides stable support and connections.
1) Space-saving: Rigid-Flex PCB technology allows for complex three-dimensional layouts within limited space. By folding or bending the flexible portion, space can be saved and the available design space can be maximized.
2) Reliable and Durable: Rigid-flex PCB has good reliability and durability. The flexible part is usually made of flexible materials such as polyimide (PI), which has excellent resistance to heat, chemicals and mechanical stress.
3) Reducing interconnects: Using Rigid-Flex PCB technology, the number of connection points, plugs and connection wires can be reduced, thereby lowering the probability of circuit failures and improving circuit reliability.
4) Optimizing electrical performance: The Rigid-Flex PCB technology is able to optimize the electrical performance of the PCB. The flex parts has lower resistance, inductance and capacitance, allowing for shorter signal paths and better signal integrity.
5) Adapt to complex shapes: Rigid-flex PCB technology adapts to complex shape requirements. Flexible parts can be bent or folded to accommodate irregular shapes or specific assembly needs.
The manufacturing process of rigid-flex PCBs is relatively complex, reliable connections and excellent electrical performance are required between rigid and flexible parts.
