A Flex PCB or FPCB is a patterned arrangement of printed circuitry and components that utilizes flexible based material with or without flexible coverlay. These flexible electronic assemblies may be fabricated using the same components used for rigid printed circuit boards, but allowing the board to conform to a desired shape (flex) during its application.
Flexible PCB / FPCB Applications
FPCBs are used widely in everyday technology and electronics in addition to high-end, complex completed components. A few of the most prominent examples of flexible circuits usage is in modern portable electronics, devices, hard disk drives and desktop printers.
Flexible circuits are also used extensively in other applications and industries including:
In transportation they are extensively used due to their improved resistance to vibrations and movement.
Some Benefits of Flexible PCBs
The primary benefits of flexible circuits compared to traditional cabling and rigid boards include the following benefits listed below. Read our full list of the advantages of Flex PCBs.
Flex boards benefits include:
- Reduced wiring errors
- Elimination of mechanical connectors
- Unparalleled design flexibility
- Higher circuit density
- More robust operating temperature range
- Stronger signal quality
- Improved reliability and impedance control
- Size and weight reduction
