Rigid Flex

Customers prefer Rigid Flex printed circuit boards (PCB) because they combine the best of flexible and rigid board technologies to replace bulky wire harnesses in a compact and robust solution. Most rigid flex boards consist of multiple layers of flexible circuit substrates attached to one or more rigid boards externally and/or internally, depending on the application design.

Because of its blend of rigid and flex, rigid flex presents creative solutions for the most demanding applications. The rigid areas provide excellent hard mount points for components, connectors and chassis, while flex areas offer dynamic flexing, flex to fit, and component mounting poised to take advantage of low mass and vibration-resistant zones.
