Flexible PCB

Flex printed circuits board (Flexible PCB) is a kinds of electronical conductor with conductive pathway printed on a bendable film that acts as an insulating (dielectric) base material and coated with a dielectric cover layer on the top. Depands on your interface requirements, the Flexible PCB can be developed using polyester or polyimide (Kapton) as the base material.

The structure can be rigid or flexible to reduce interconnection and incorporate tails directly into the circuit. FPC can be designed from simple single layer copper flex on polyester(single layer FPC), to complex double sided on polyimide(double layer FPC), and even intricate multi-layer composition.

  • Single Sided Flexible PCB
    Single Side Flexible PCB
  • Single layer Flexible PCB consisted of one conductive layer, suitable when space is limited.

  • Double Sided Flexible PCB
    DoubleSideFlexible PCB
  • Double layer is make of two conductive layers with an insulating layer between. It is a ideal product when circuit density is required.

  • Multi Layer Flex
    Multi Layer Flexible PCB
  • The multi-layer flex is the FPC combines either single sided or double sided flex PCB. It's a efficient solution when met the unavoidable crossovers.
