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.
