7.DIY Flexible PCB
Rigid-Flex boards are composed of a combination of rigid and flex circuit boards that are permanently connected to one another.
The proper application of Rigid-Flex circuit boards offers optimum solutions for difficult, limited space conditions.
2.Flexible PCB Manufacturing Process
♦ Double-Sided Flex PCB
Cutting → Drill Hole → PTH → Electroplate → Pre-Processing → Dry Film → Check Position → Exposure → Development → Graphic Electroplating → Etching → Decoating → Surface Processing → Cover the film → Press → Solidification → Immersion Nickel → Printing character → Shear → Electrical Measurement → Punching → Final inspection → Packing → Shipment
♦ Single Panel
Cutting → Drill Hole → Dry Film → Check Position → Exposure → Development → Etching → Decoating → Surface Processing → Cover the film → Press → Solidification → Immersion Nickel → Printing character → Shear → Electrical Measurement → Punching → Final inspection → Packing → Shipment
3.Flexible PCB Connector
Since the printed circuit can be inserted at an angle,the connector can be placed anywhere on a PCB.This makes it possible to place other components in front of a FPC connector.
Flexible and flex-rigid PCBs are being designed more and more with the prevalent ZIF interface,possessing a so-called ZIF contact (ZIF = Zero Insertion Force) for connection with a ZIF connector.
Hence, appropriate one-stop system solutions make sense.
4.Flexible PCB Prototype
♦ Standard flex PCB prototype
♦ 2 mil trace/space (copper thickness dependent)
♦ Single- or double-sided stackup
♦ 6:1 via aspect ratio
5.Flexible PCB Design
Before embarking on a flex circuit design, it is important that a holistic overview of the project be taken. A circuit designer should attempt to take into account.
As many of the items discussed in the implementation section as are possible or relevant.
Minimizing the possibility that a gross and avoidable error will be carried through the design process.
It is also important that the designer keep in mind that flexible circuit designs require a balancing of both mechanical and electrical concerns.
6.Flexible PCB Cost
WellPCB Start to serve Flexible PCB Manufacturing with a very Competitive Price.
We have already finished the R&D of 1-4 layers flex and rigid-flex board and passed the test.We can provide some special requirements of rigid-flex boards.
Almost all the companies posted here and they add a "tooling" fee. Others all depends the manufacturing capabilities and quality.
We will always be stick to innovate and research more high-tech products, keep moving!
7.DIY Flexible PCB
Produce your own single-sided flex circuits using a solid ink printer, copper-coated polyimide film, and common circuit board etching chemicals.
You will find flex PCBs inside most cellphones or similar miniaturized gadgets. Flex PCBs are useful for making tiny cables and extremely lightweight circuits.
However, few shops yet make custom flex PCBs for reasonable prices in small volumes.
