Flexible PCB - also referred to as Flexible Printed Circuit Board, Flexible Circuits, Flex prints - are used in interconnecting electronic devices. Flex PCBs have printed conductive circuit patterns covered by thin polymer coating for protection. Flex PCBs, unlike rigid PCBs, are made to fit electronic devices.
The benefits of Flex PCBs are numerous. Some of the benefits include:
Flex PCBs offer a whole lot of freedom while installing the components of devices. Their flexibility allows for interconnection between two or more planes. Requiring less than 10% of space and weight of a circuit board assembly, Flex PCBs usage leads to an incredible space management and reduce the weight of the devices.
Because they consume very little space, Flex PCBs allow for a higher flow of cool air through an electronic device.
The main cause of problems with circuit boards is with interconnections. With Flexible Printed Circuit Boards, interconnections are greatly reduced, hence, there are fewer solder points and contacts. Therefore, the chances of system failure are greatly reduced.
With Flexible circuit boards, there's reduced soldering, routing, and wrapping. This leads to a huge reduction in cost. Also, with a Flex PCBs, there’s reduced need for manual labor, which reduces the chances of production errors and wiring errors. Ultimately, assembly time is kept low and costs are reduced.
Flex PCB are exceptionally suitable for use in moving parts of a device. Also, they have high thermal capabilities and can withstand extreme temperatures in addition to offering a higher resistance to chemicals and radiations.
Flexible Printed Circuit Boards are widely used in various devices that can be categorized as:
Static: These are applications that require Flex PCB to act only as a circuit without the need for movement. Examples include Calculators, Airbag system, Cameras etc.
Dynamic: In dynamic applications, the Flexible circuits are continuously moved/flexed during usage. Examples of dynamic applications include Flip cell phones, Laptops etc.
