Flex Circuit Manufacturing for Innovative Product Design

High Quality Solutions to Reduce Manufacturing Cost and Time

Flex and rigid flex circuits have become increasingly popular in the high-density electronics industry for their cost-saving three-dimensional configurations. The ability to build circuitry to fit the device instead of the other way around, offers significant advantages for complex aerospace, military, and medical device applications. Green Circuits works closely with clients on their new product development projects and have been instrumental in the development of many new and ground-breaking products such as, Freedom Innovation’s bionic knee and NASA’s micro satellite TechEDSat-X.

While there are many benefits to choosing flex and rigid-flex for manufacturer and consumer, the 5 key advantages of flex and rigid-flex for manufacturing innovative product designs are:

  1. Reduced packaging requirements: Being thin and light-weight, flex circuit boards can easily bend or fold into the smallest areas, supporting unique placements and product shapes. Reduced packaging requirements can save as much as 60% of space and weight in the final product when compared to wire harness applications and rigid PCBs.
  2. Greater reliability: By simplifying the product design, flex circuits reduce wiring considerations for corners and layers of electronics, and the number of connections. This increases product reliability.
  3. Anti-vibration benefits: Lighter weight and greater flexibility allows flex PCBs to absorb vibration and shock for better noise reduction and impedance control.
  4. Use in harsh environments: Flex circuit materials (like polyimide) dissipate heat at a better rate, making them ideally suitable for use in applications that run in extreme temperatures. Greater resistance to oils, gases, acids, radiation, and UV exposure are added benefits.
  5. Reduced assembly cost and time: Smaller area, reduced packaging size, and the number of parts used for interconnections, significantly lower your PCB assembly costs. Elimination of wire routing errors further reduces test time, errors and rework expenses.
