Using Rigid-Flex PCBs to Improve Design Reliability Webinar

Reliability is a significant consideration in all designs, but more so in specific industries. The costs of either initial failures during assembly or more critically latent in the field failures can be excessive in both the expense and consequences. A benefit of rigid-flex technology is the ability to improve the reliability of a design. This applies to both the electrical functionality, and more importantly, the mechanical performance of the finished parts.

Mechanically, reliability is improved in two areas: the elimination of many points of interconnect between multiple rigid sections and a reduction in the total weight for improved shock and vibe performance. Electrically, rigid-flex designs allow for both improved signal integrity, for high-speed controlled impedance requirements, and effective shielding for EMI and RF sensitive designs.

In this webinar we review the multiple aspects of rigid-flex technology that will improve the reliability of your designs.

Celebrating 70 Years of Manufacturing Excellence
America's Oldest. A History of Innovation.

Over the past 70 years, the electronics manufacturing industry has changed dramatically as the industry continues to adapt to evolving demands and technology. Epec is at the forefront of innovation, with the expertise and agility to move at the speed of today’s businesses. At Epec, the customer comes first, and everything we do must be put through that filter. Whether it is developing e-commerce platforms to make it easier to work with us or creating a new product introduction (NPI) process that helps our customers get to market faster, we must focus on building the new. By doing that every day, and by always making the customer our top priority, we plan on being here for another 70 years and then some.
