Rigid Flex PCBs
Rigid Flex PCBs are a great choice for ultra-thin packaging needs. A rigid-flex printed circuit boards as its name suggests, is a hybrid board that integrates elements from both hardboard and flexible circuits. The key advantage with these rigid and flex circuit boards is that they can be folded or flexed while maintaining shape. While the rigid PCBs are responsible to hold all the components, the flexible film connects two rigid PCBs. It is possible to create these custom boards depending on whether you want the outward or inward layers to be flexible. With their ability to streamline the electronic design, they provide added functionality and improved electrical performance.
As a well-known Rigid Flex PCB manufacturer, At Technotronix, we have covered all your rigid flex PCB needs. Count on us to create these custom rigid flex boards as per your bespoke specifications that suit the requirements of your application.

Benefits of Rigid Flex PCBs
There are a wide variety of advantages when it comes to rigid flex PCBs. Some of them include:
- Improved connection reliability on account of fewer solder joints.
- Reduced weight and space requirements.
- Rigid Flex printed circuit boards are suitable for high-shock and high-vibration environments without causing equipment failure and hence known for reliability.
- Suited for high-density applications. Little surprise then that as the trend of miniaturization grows, their use become ubiquitous.
- Overall, they lend themselves to optimized costs as their advantages far outweigh the increase in costs.
- Rigid flex PCBs are known for their ease of assembly.
- They are suited for applications which would have otherwise required multiple rigid boards.
Application of Rigid Flex Printed Circuit Boards
With rigid flex circuit assemblies reducing the need for connectors & offering improved reliability besides lending themselves to high density applications, its use is quite ubiquitous. Widespread usage of rigid flex boards is seen in industries such as:
