Flexible Circuit Design, Manufacturing, & Assembly
Turn-Key Solutions For Single-Sided/Double-Sided Flexible Circuits
Using the latest flexible circuit equipment and strict quality-control rules, Power Design Services’ printed flex circuit capabilities can offer any business fast turnarounds on medium-volume orders. A leader in the printed flex circuit/rigid-flex circuits industry, Power Design Services has designed, fabricated, and assembled printed circuit boards for some of the biggest high-tech companies in the world. Power Design Services offers two types of printed flex circuit options: single-sided flexible circuits and double-sided flexible circuits.
Single-Sided Flexible Circuits
Single-sided flexible circuits are ideal for a number of situations, including unusual folding, forming, or dynamic applications. Consisting of a single copper-conductor layer on a flexible dielectric film, single-sided flexible circuits provide a unique type of printed circuit board for installation or service flexing. Single-sided flexible circuits can be fabricated with or without cover layers. The figure below breaks down the material makeup of single-sided printed flex circuit:
Single-Sided printed flex circuit features include:
- Ultra-thin construction under .004″-.008″ (.10mm-.20mm)
- 1 Conductor Layer
- Reverse bared or back bared pads
- Supported and unsupported finger areas
Double-Sided Flexible Circuits
Double-sided printed flex circuits gives designers another level of capability for more complex applications. When an application calls for high-density design and layout, double-sided printed flex circuits ensure a compact, efficient design ideal for such uses as ground and power plane applications. Double-sided flexible circuits can also be commonly found in shielding applications or on a dense surface-mount assembly. The figure below breaks down the material makeup of double-sided flexible circuits:
Double-Sided Flex Circuit Features:
- Component assembly available on both sides.
- Two conductive layers.
- Fingers are an integral part of the conductor patterns. (call PDS for details or sample)
- Multi-layer Flex Circuits
- 3.3 mil Flex Circuits
