Rigid Flexible Circuits
Rigid Flex Antenna
There are two fundamental structural applications that must be understood about the flexible component of a rigid flex:
- Static Application - an application where flex circuits are needed only to install the circuit and fit it into its application (also known as flex-to-fit or flex-to-install).
- Dynamic Flexing Applications - a situation where the flex circuit area itself is dynamically flexed for any number of reasons above and beyond a simple install.
It will be key to understand some background on rigid flex circuits:
- Advances in rigid circuit board technology has broadened the applications on electronic products from computer, communication, and consumer electronics, to automotive, medical, and military electronics.
- Increasing demand for more powerful and smaller products drives the need for multiple layers to accommodate denser, finer line width and spacing and smaller hole sizes.
