Flex circuits have recently gained huge popularity due to the fact
that they can be shaped, bent, twisted, and folded into limitless
Both the rigid PCBs and flexible PCBs however serve the same
ultimate function, which is connecting various electrical and
mechanical components together.
When to Use Rigid PCB and When to Use Flexible PCB
If we compare the price of Rigid PCB and Flex PCB, Rigid PCBs
typically cost less than flex circuits.
“Typically” because if we consider the total cost of ownership
there are some applications that, when using flexible PCBs, may be
less expensive as compared to using rigid PCBs.
The flex circuits eliminate the need for some components such as
connectors, wire harnesses, and other circuit boards. So by
removing these components from a design, material cost, labor and
assembly cost, and scrap cost are all reduced.
Many electronic devices (laptop and desktop computers,audio
keyboards, solid-state drivers (SSDs), flat-screen TVs and
monitors, children’s toys, and various electronic gadgets) employ
rigid PCBs instead of flexible PCBs.
However, flex circuits may be found in ultra-compact and/or
high-performance devices, including GPS units, tablets, smart
phones, cameras, and wearables. It is also found in some low-tech
applications such as under-the-counter LED lights .
It is also possible to use a flex circuit and a rigid circuit
together—as a unified PCB . This approach, perhaps, provides the
best of both worlds.
What Are Flexible PCBs Used For?
A flex PCB is essentially the same thing as a non-flex board except
the flexible PCB uses a flexible base material to make its circuit
connections. This is most helpful for products that will likely not
be stationary devices. The durability and size of flexible PCBs, as
well as the shrinking sizes of electronics, has resulted in their
adoption by a growing number of industries. Just a few of these
industries and applications include the following:
Automobiles: With the automotive industry increasingly turning
toward electronic components, circuits that can handle the
vibrations and stresses of a vehicle’s interior are more important
than ever. Flexible PCBs offer a valuable option for the industry,
providing a durable yet cost-effective option.
Consumer Electronics: Flexible PCBs are typically used in small
electronic products like cell phones, tablets, cameras, video
recorders and other similar smaller gadgets on the market today.
These products may be transported or handled regularly, making the
flexible PCB’s resistance to shock and vibration a useful feature.
High-Speed Digital, RF and Microwave Applications: The reliability
of flexible PCBs makes them ideal for handling high-frequency
Industrial: Industrial electronics often handle massive amounts of
vibration and stress, so flexible PCBs with shock absorption and
anti-vibration capabilities are a must.
LED: LED lighting is massively popular today in both residential
and commercial applications. This is primarily because of LED
technology’s incredible power efficiency. Heat is often the only
concern, which can be mitigated with flexible PCBs and their
effective heat transfer properties.
Medical Systems: Small and dense electronic designs are becoming
increasingly important in the medical industry, with handheld
surgical technology and even electronic implants growing in
popularity. Flexible PCBs can be applied in both cases, meeting the
durability and size requirements of surgical technology and the
necessary flexing ability for implants.
Power Electronics: Another benefit of flexible PCBs is that they
can be coupled with highly flexible, thin layers of copper, which
means the board can handle heavier power currents. This is
especially important in devices that will require more power to
operate at full capacity, like those found in the power electronics
