Rigid-Flex Power Distribution Control Circuits Application


Challenge

A contract manufacturing company needed help improving the quality and supply chain reliability of rigid-flex circuits for a power distribution control circuit application. The product had been in production already, but had issues with circuit failure. The existing rigid-flex circuit design also did not meet IPC standards for materials and construction. A solution was needed that solved these problems while maintaining existing price targets at the same time.


Solution

Rigid-Flex Power Distribution Control Circuits Application

The failures that plagued the previous rigid-flex circuits design were caused by using outdated methods to produce new designs. Epec revised the designs and updated methods to meet the current IPC-2223C standards while utilizing cost effective materials to keep the price down. The resulting rigid-flex product was high-quality and reliable. Epec also performed technical sessions with both the customer and the end user to inform them of the benefits of the new rigid-flex circuit design.


Result

The end user implemented Epec's new and reliable revised rigid-flex circuit design into its current and new part numbers. They no longer have issues with circuit failure.
