Hybrid PCB

Hybrid PCB

A hybrid PCB is a multilayer printed circuit board, which has multiple materials for each layer. With the right combination of substrates, the reliability of hybrid PCBs increases many folds. In fact, different substrate materials have different dielectric quotients and coefficients of thermal expansion improve the electrical performance of the PCB.

materials utilized in the fabrication of hybrid pcb

Typically, a hybrid PCB could use a mix of FR-4 material with high frequency PTFE material.

PTFE

Suitable for high-frequency PCBs, and applications require improved impedance control and low signal loss.

FR-4

Flame retardant and low on costs, it is known for its electrical insulation and high dielectric strength. It can withstand moisture and varying temperature range.

Polyimide

Polyimide is known for its high chemical resistance, great electrical properties, lightweight, and flexibility. However, it is more expensive when compared to PTFE and FR-4. Often PTFE and FR-4 are utilized in designing hybrid electronics PCB.

Challenges to consider when designing Hybrid PCBs

Each material has a different CTE value. This is challenging when one laminate expands, and other may shrink. It is important to ensure proper layer separation when fabricating multilayered hybrid electronics PCBs. Another issue to be tackled is knowing the period of delamination for materials. The adhesive system is utilized for hybrid circuit boards depending on the type of material. Determining material compatibility and managing warpage are the biggest challenges in manufacturing hybrid PCBs.

It is important to go with a company that has the necessary expertise in designing and manufacturing hybrid boards. At Technotronix, we offer high-quality hybrid printed circuit boards to meet your bespoke requirements.

Hybrid PCBs FAQs

A hybrid printed circuit board is a PCB that uses dissimilar materials. Hybrid PCBs optimize electrical performance as well as improve system reliability.

Hybrid PCB stack up is used to improve SI for signals routed on selected layers.

With high frequency hybrid PCBs both HF material and regular material are used in the same printed board. This can meet the requirements of both high frequency and regular frequency. This results in high reliability of the board as well as its cost-effectiveness.

You can use hybrid PCB whenever you want to expand creativity for the desired electrical, thermal and mechanical properties. There are many other aspects you should consider before using hybrid PCBs; including required application, temperature, types of frequencies, costs, and more.
