FLEX & RIGID-FLEX PCBs
QUICKTURN FLEXIBLE PCB PROTOTYPE AND ASSEMBLY
PCB FAB EXPRESS is proud to offer high-quality, high-reliability quickturn flexible printed circuit boards in two days or less.
FLEX PCBs
Sierra Circuits can produce flex boards between 1 -- 16 layers.
Flex PCB
RIGID-FLEX PCBs
Rigid-flex PCBs combine rigid PCBs and flexible PCBs, allowing for both flexility and rigidity.
Rigid-Flex PCB
HDI FLEX PCBs
Adding high density inter-connect to flex PCBs allows additional space for other features on the PCB.

PHYSICAL ADVANTAGES FOR FLEX
  • More flexibility, as the name suggests.
  • Improved resistance to vibrations and movement; lower mass/weight.
  • Small package size.
  • Allows the board to bend to its desired applicable shape.
  • Allows for more compact devices.
  • High tensile strength-can be significantly warped/deformed without breakage.
  • High bendiness-up to 360 degrees.
  • Easier to prepare for harsh environments.
  • The use of flexible flat cables (FCC), which can bend without being damaged, and takes up less space than traditional wires
MANUFACTURING & ASSEMBLY ADVANTAGES
  • Increase in design freedom.
  • Installation flexibility.
  • Increased reliability and durability.
  • Improved heat dissipation.
  • Improved airflow.
