Flexible printed circuit boards (PCB) have revolutionized the engineering field because in the past rigid circuit boards were most commonly used, but due to its weight and the number of wires, most engineers now prefer using the Flexible PCB. Not only it is more flexible (Hence, the name) and can be bent over a million times, it is also very reliable and can withstand harsh environmental stress. Due to less interconnects; it leaves less room for the potential failure.
Flexible printed circuit boards are viable for the miniature device, because it can fit anywhere, as opposed to rigid circuit boards, flex printed circuit boards reduces the weight of the device by 61% and makes it more reliable to mount into your design. Originally, Mars’ rover was designed on a rigid circuit board, and due to its immense weight and wiring, that was quickly replaced by flexible printed circuit boards because they can provide excellent thermal stability.
If you search on the internet, you will come across a wide array of websites, claiming to be the best in the manufacturing of flexible printed circuits, but those are just the claims. If you want to learn more about the flexible printed circuits and wants to purchase for your custom design, then it is advised to check out Rayming PCB & Assembly’s websites because they don’t make claims, instead, they will prove you their worth by providing with excellent services you could find anywhere else.
