Combining the advantages of both, rigid and flexible PCBs in one circuit board offers several benefits:
Replace rigid PCBs, connectors, cables or separate flexible circuit boards by integrating the connection of different parts in one single rigid-flex PCB
Reduce the size of components and enabling 3-dimensional installation of assembled PCBs
Increase reliability, especially in harsh environments including vibration, acceleration or deceleration, as connection is integrated in the circuitry
Improved signal integrity
Reduce logistic effort by combining several components within one single PCB
Cicor is offering a big variety of rigid-flex PCB constructions, using high end/quality base materials, like high TG/low CTE FR4, combined with polyimide foils and various adhesives. State of the art interconnection technologies like stacked or staggered vias and via-in-pad structures are used to drive miniaturization further down the road. A big portfolio of surface finishings is enabling Cicors customers to use all available assembly methods on boards produced by us.
