Application of FPC, a significant advantage is that it can more easily trace three-dimensional space and equipment companies, can also be curled or folded up and use. As long as allowed within a radius of curvature of curly, can withstand the thousands to tens of times to use without damage.
Reduce the volume of 2.2
Even in the component installation, the same ratio using the guide wire, flexible PCB, thin, flat conductor cross section, reducing the wire size, and shape along the chassis to make the device more compact and reasonable, with reduced installation volume. Compared with the rigid PCB space savings of 60 to 90%.
In the same volume, flexible PCB assembly and wire cable than in the same carrying capacity, its weight can reduce about 70%, compared with the rigid PCB, the weight of 90%.
2.4 installed with the consistency of
Even loaded with soft PCB, eliminating the use of wire cable wiring errors. After proof-reading by as long as the processing of drawings, all produced by the winding of the future are the same circuit. Loading does not occur when the wrong cable connected.
2.5 increases the reliability
When using PCB mounted with soft, because in the X, Y, Z three plane wiring, reducing the transfer interconnection, so that the entire system reliability increases, and the fault of the inspection, provided for convenience.
2.6 Design of controllable electrical parameters
According to requirements, the designer during the flexible PCB design, controlled capacitance, inductance, characteristic impedance, delay and attenuation. Can be designed to have the characteristics of the transmission line. Because these parameters and the wire width, thickness, spacing, insulation thickness, dielectric constant, loss tangent and so on, which is difficult when using wire cable did it.
2.7 Soldering terminal may be a whole
Rigid PCB Flexible PCB, as the same, with the terminal pad, you can eliminate wire stripping head and keep out of tin, thereby saving costs. Terminal pad and the element, device, plug, dip soldering or wave soldering can be used to replace each wire by hand soldering.
2.8 optional use of materials
Soft PCB can be used according to different requirements of different substrate materials used to make. For example, low-cost equipment required with the application, use polyester film. In demanding applications, need to have excellent performance, you can use sub-polyamide film.
