Flex & Rigid-Flex Circuits
Flex & Rigid-Flex circuits can be shaped to fit where no other design can. They are a hybrid of ordinary printed circuit boards and round wire, exhibiting benefits of each. In essence, flexible circuits give you unlimited freedom of packaging geometry while retaining the precision density and repeatability of printed circuits.
As a high reliability replacement for wire and wire harness assemblies, flex circuits provide a significant cost savings with no reduction in performance.
There are a variety of terminations for flex circuits and we can provide all of these as standard manufacturing process. Adding connectors and other minor component assembly is a common practice when producing flex and rigid flex circuits.
Types of Flex Circuits
Each type of flex circuit offers different advantages. While some types of flex circuits can offer lower production costs, others have additional increased functionality.
We provide early design services for all your Flex and Rigid-Flex needs. From selecting the best functional configuration to choosing the proper connectors or components, we will help you with your product from early design stages to production.

Rigid-Flex Circuit Benefits
Rigid Flex circuits gives the ability to design your circuitry to fit the device, instead of building a device to fit the circuit board.
Rigid Flex circuits are designed for the rigors of aerospace, medical and military applications, with dependable reliability. Flex assemblies have the ability to be folded or creased and positioned into the smallest areas makes miniaturization of many devices possible, while offering a substantial weight reduction.
