Flexible Printed Circuit Board become more popular

Why we need a flexible Printed Circuit Board?

First time to use, flexible Printed Circuit Board was during World War 2, usable in some weapon or electronic products.
If you have watched some video related that time, you will find flexible Printed Circuit Board was originally designed as a replacement for traditional wire harnesses.
Not design for electronic products or weapon.
Flexible Printed Circuit Board has many advantages, like low cost, smaller space, and weight savings etc.
Resulting in more and more designer uses flexible Printed Circuit Board.

The Benefits of flexible Printed Circuit Board

There are many benefits of the flexible Printed Circuit Board.
Some benefits are not for all applications, just for special flexible Printed Circuit Board.
Emma wants to summary some benefit for most applications.
First is requiring smaller space than conventional PCB.
This means you can assembly more components on surface of the flexible Printed Circuit Board.
Also you can design more smaller device.
Secondly, is high performance of flexible Printed Circuit Board.
Most flexible Printed Circuit Board can handle your signal quality or integrity issue.

Then is the test method of flexible Printed Circuit board.
You can use a flying probe test method or die mould test.
If your product uses in harsh environment, the flexible Printed Circuit Board is the idea for your case.
Because it’s have very reliable in harsh environment.
Next is the cost and the weight reduction.
You know the flexible Printed Circuit Board have light copper weight than heavy copper PCB.
This means the cost of flexible Printed Circuit Board can reduce.
Due to its thin thickness, the weight also reduce.
