You should know the HUD application of flexible PCB

The HUD application of flexible PCB

This post is main discuss the HUD application of flexible PCB.
It’s very important technology in aerospace, and this part we will go deep below.
In fact, there are many sub segments in aerospace area, next post will discuss some other flexible PCB used in aerospace.

What are the Heads-up Display (HUD)?

Here is a description of Heads-up Display (HUD) from Wikipedia, the Source link is
A head-up display or heads-up display, also known as a HUD, is any transparent display that presents data without requiring users to look away from their usual viewpoints.

HUD widely uses in the aerospace industry

So its widely use in aerospace, displaying operational data directly in the pilot’s field of vision.
This mean alleviates the need to look away from a potential target to read critical operational data during flight.
If you have known the construct of HUD, you can saw flexible PCB board.

HUD applied to wearable devices

If you have known some trends of science, special some wearable device news.
You also can be read some HUD application.
The holographic waveguide helmet-mounted display (HWVD) from HoloEye Systems provides high-resolution true 3D imaging, using flexible PCB cables to drive the waveguide optical system, which uses HoloEye’s liquid crystal on silicon (LCOS) display technology.

Some reasons why should use flexible PCB in HUD products?

First of all is due to its flexibility.
This is the most important advantage of the flexible PCB board.
It’s feasible to mount the display directly on the pilot’s helmet.
Then is due to its good reliability.
Use flexible PCB board in HUD can allow pilot effective in real time use for avionics.
