Electrical vs Mechanical Requirements in Flex & Rigid-Flex PCB Designs

A standard requirement for all flexible and rigid-flex circuit board designs is that they all contain both electrical and mechanical requirements. The demands of each of these two distinct areas, when combined in a specific design, can create conflicts that may compromise it.

A complete review of all the requirements, and how they interact, is part of the design process that ensures all performance requirements are met reliability.

Electrical vs Mechanical Requirements in Flex and Rigid-Flex PCB Designs

In this webinar, we identify the specific technical items, for both electrical and mechanical portions, that can create design challenges or limitations and the methods used to resolve them.
