For years rigid circuit boards were commonly used for the common devices, you see today. As the time progresses, there was more demand for the durability and miniaturizing designs. This is where Flexible PCB comes in, they are considered to be more durable and reliable in the long-term use because Flexible PCB can withstand more than millions of folds and even then it wouldn’t break down.
Flexible PCBs are designed to save you room and the overall weight of the device because you can save up to 61% of weight in the wiring solution by using flexible PCBs. The main source of circuit failure is due to the environmental stress, and that’s why most rigid circuits are prone to failure as compared to flexible printed circuit boards, because flexible PCBs are made from such material that can withstand harsh environments.
Myriads of expert technicians do prefer the flexible PCBs because it requires fewer solder joints and contact crimps, and it will still be able to last long in a mounting design. You can see the applications of flexible PCBs in the medical and military fields. Not only that, you can also see the application of flexible PCBs in common items in your home, such as your cell phone, microwave, television etc. If you want to find more information on Flexible PCB Manufacturing, and where to purchase them, then all you need to do is go to the Rayman PCB & Assembly’s blog and you will find all the information there.
