FPCB Flexible Circuits

Flexible printed circuits were originally designed as a substitute for traditional wiring. From its beginnings to the present, their demand has grown exponentially and they are used in more and more projects due to the advantages they offer. A flexible circuit is "simply" a large number of conductors glued to a very thin film of dielectric.

From simple applications to the most complex, the possibilities and versatility of flexible printed circuits is unimaginable.

The main advantages of flexible circuits compared to traditional wiring and rigid circuits are several:

  • Reduction of errors in assembly, by replacing cable connections.
  • Reduction of assembly time and, consequently, the cost.
  • Freedom and flexibility in its design and during its installation, by offering more possibilities of interconnection in 3 dimensions.
  • Increases reliability, by having the possibility of reducing the number of interconnection points.
  • Reliability and durability in equipment with moving parts, as flexible circuits can move and flex up to 500 million times without failure.
  • Reduction of weight and size, with the consequent possibility of reducing space in the development of the equipment.
