Benefits of Flex Circuit Technology
Flexible circuits provide four major benefits over rigid PC boards.
Freedom of Design - Flexible circuits allow for an almost unlimited degree of design freedom.
Flex circuits can fit in tight spaces. They can bend, fold, twist, change in width many times and even flex from a rolled configuration. This gives the package designer the freedom to relocate other parts and subassemblies where they will optimize circuit and equipment operation. The designer is no longer restricted by the space demands of bulky, rigid PCBs.
Saving on Space and Weight - Because flexible circuits can be bent, twisted and rolled to suit the contour of the equipment, designers can enjoy a space savings of up to 75%.
The larger surface-to-volume ratio of flexible circuits allow for increased heat dissipation and lighter current capacity. Denser device populations and lighter conductors can be designed into a product, freeing space for additional product features.
Reliability and Durability - Flex circuits are made from precise replicas of artwork for superior manufacturing repeatability. The etched circuits replace the solder and hand-wiring connections of the rigid board, completely eliminating wiring errors.
Production Cost Savings - Production of designs using flexible circuits require less manual labor and reduces the probability of production errors. The use of flex circuits eliminates the high cost of routing, wrapping, and soldering wires.
Complete interconnection systems are installed or replaced, rather than individual rigid printed circuit boards. This greatly eliminates wiring errors and reduces manufacturing costs. This automation also reduces the chance of human error and increases reliability in the design.
Low volume applications benefit the most when circuit designs are very complex. Most high volume applications get lower production costs regardless of the complexity of the circuit. As simpler, more direct methods of integrating circuits are discovered, the cost savings realized by flex increases. The use of conductive ink, anisotropic adhesives, and additive circuitry are ideal in designs using flex.
