Flex, Rigid-Flex Boards and Assembly

Our days are intertwined with electronic devices of all sizes from smartphones and medical devices to wearable and iPads, just to name a few. While most devices are flexible, efficient, and lightweight, they also have one more thing in common—each uses flexible circuit boards.

Types of Flex Fabrication Services

  • Single-Sided Flexible Circuits - A single copper conductor layer on a flexible dielectric film.

  • Double-Sided Flexible Circuits - Double-sided copper clad material with top and bottom cover films. The two conductive layers have an insulating layer between.

  • Multi-Layer Flexible Circuit Boards - A combination of single and/or double-sided flex circuits laminated with adhesive onto a single and/or double-sided material.

  • Rigid Flex Circuits - Used to accommodate the entire conductor pattern of electric circuit within one component.
