The Answer Isn’t Always Rigid Flex

rigid flex pcb

Rigid flex printed circuit boards (PCBs) provide significant advantages—flexibility, lightness and durability. These types of PCBs have now become more mainstream as high reliability and lower weight are increasingly desired by developers of increasingly complex electronic components.

But not every circuitry projects requires rigid flex PCBs. There are a variety of factors that make alternative PCBs a better choice than rigid flex.

Our new whitepaper explains it all:

In this free whitepaper, we share why alternative PCBs could be a better fit:

  • Design doesn’t include non-circuit components
  • Shock and vibration aren’t a major issue
  • Cost is a critical factor
  • Dynamic bending isn’t needed
