How about the reliability of flexible PCB board?
Related to flexible PCB reliability, we have discussed the advantage of flexible PCB’s thickness.
To our normal terminal customers, we don’t care the flexible PCB thickness.
Most of us care more about how to use it and how long we can use it.
This issue related to this paper topic that electronic product reliability.
In other words, why flexible PCB can provide so great reliability and durability.
Firstly flexible PCB can improve connected reliability
You know in flexible PCB assembly process, there were few solder joints, connectors, contact crimps etc.
Our 4MCPCB assembly experts told Emma that those factors were the risk of connected reliability.
Rigid PCB designers speed much time to decrease appear connected problems.
But flexible PCB can easy to ignore those risk due to instead above connected methods.
Use flexible PCB can increased connected reliability and eliminating most interface.
Some improve the idea of flexible PCB reliability
We have know flexible PCB connected reliability.
The more fewer numbers of interconnects, resulting to fewer sources of potential failure.
This theory is described how flexible PCB connected reliability.
But not enough to meet some strictly special situation needs.
So some electronic engineers use rigid-flexible combine techniques to improve.
The rigid PCB section will improve the reliability and flexible PCB section will provide connected solutions.

The thermal management improves flexible PCB reliability
If you have read our flexible PCB material article, you may know Polyimide is main material of the flexible PCB board.
PCB material experts told Emma this is very special material that have exceptional thermal stability.
That’s the reason why most flexible PCB has good thermal management.
And also can withstand applications with extreme heat situation.
Compare with conventional PCB board, use Polyimide manufacture flexible PCB has better thermal stability.
And during SMT process, flexible PCB surface can withstand higher temperature.
Most important is that flexible PCB has less stress due to compliant base film.
It’s less likely to occur thermal mismatch during flexible PCB assembly process.
The applications of flexible PCB reliability
In fact, most applications will need flexible PCB reliability.
But we here to discuss only those situations that mainly consider flexible PCB reliability.
In military or medical applications, widely use flexible PCB reliability.
Due to those applications must ensure security, this factor is mainly considered.
Then also have good electronics performance.
