FLEXIBLE AND DYNAMIC

FPCs are produced and assembled flat and can be mounted in 3D as well as interconnecting moving parts in high dynamic applications like the reading head in HDDs.

Typical FPC technology:

  • Single-sided

  • Thin copper and polyimide

MOBILE DEVICES

Nearly every mobile device, like smart phones, notebooks and many more are made with several FPCs. The advantages of the FPC (light weight, high component density, small packaging size) makes it a often used solution to connect cameras, switches and LEDs with the motherboard.

Typical FPC technology:

  • Single-sided to multi-layer

  • 12µm to 17µm copper foil

  • Silver paste shielding

  • Polyimide stiffener

INTEGRATION OF FUNCTIONS

Freedom of design and assembly are two of the key characteristics of flexible printed circuits. FPCs are produced and assembled flat and can be mounted in 3D. This advantage enables our customer to place advanced functionality like LED lights, touch sensors, switches precisely where they are needed. By using FPC assembly is simplified and therefore the quality is improved and the total costs are reduced.

Typical FPC technology:

  • Single-sided

  • 17µm or 35µm copper foil

  • Aluminum or FR4 stiffener

  • PSA (Pressure Sensitive Adhesive)

SIGNAL INTEGRITY

FPCs can very well be used to carry sensible signals or as antenna. The FPC can be produced with impedance control as well as with different shielding technologies.


Typical FPC technology:

  • Single-sided, double-sided or multi-layer FPC

  • 12µm to 17µm

  • Silver paste or copper shielding

CONNECTOR

By incorporating other connection technologies like a side arm, a ZIF connector or by using fine pitch technology, FPCs can easily be connected to other systems or components and therefore makes it an ideal connector.

Typical FPC technologies:

  • Single-sided

  • 17µm or 35µm copper foil

  • Polyimide stiffener
