Meet dynamic flexing requirements
flexible circuits can be designed to reliably undergo millions of
flexings without failure and fit into spaces that no other interconnect
can. Ultra-light and high flexing ability enable dynamic
application such as VCD pick-up head ink-jet printer head, disk drive
reader and etc.
replacement for traditional cabling in point-to-point
interconnects. Flex-rigid board is much more reliable than traditional
wiring method. Soldering the flexible circuits directly to the mated
assembly is another way to eliminate mechanical connectors.
Easier installation and service
for equipment maintenance, there are no bulky harness looms to be
removed. Access, removal and replacement are all made easier.
Improve manufacturing yield and reliability
flexible circuits are custom-built. thus they are easily fitted and
wiring errors are avoidable. Assembly and inspection times are reduced
and rework is eliminated.
Reduce assembly costs
flexible circuits slash assembly cost and administrative cost in
both subtle and obvious way. Wiring is made simple, one order to be
placed, one incoming inspection and one set of track record.
Improve aesthetics of your product
offering the designer tremendous scope and versatility to address
the total electrical packaging with its flexing ability and ultra-light
nature leading to sleek design.
Reduce weight and space
significant weight and space reduction is achieved when compared to
equivalent hard wiring. flexible circuits enable high density electrical
interconnection and reduce space requirements by as much as 80%.
Electrical characteristics control
standardisation and repeatability can be designed into a circuits.
Electrical characteristics - capacitance, impedance, cross-talk will be
consistent from batch to batch.
Thermal management for greater operating temperature range
through its natural sandwiched and thin construction, flex can
easily dissipate heat. more precise thermal control can be achieved.
In applications demanding plug-in type connections
specialized mechanical connectors are used with flexible circuits.
Types of connectors commonly used are zero insertion force(ZIF),
pressure contact stiffened and piercing.
