Evolution of the Flex Printed Circuit Board

The evolution of flex printed circuit boards is very interesting. The concept of PCBs started in the 1900s with construction of electrically conducting paths on insulated surfaces or boards. Manufacturers used these for developing equipment such as radios and gramophones. The through-hole technique came into existence around this time.

Applications for Flex Printed Circuit Boards

Nearly all modern electronic products have benefited from flexible and rigid-flex circuitry technology. Today, electronic equipment typically uses flexible circuitry for applications that must process critical signals, need to perform flawlessly in extreme environments, enable national defense, manage heat and power distribution, reduce automobile accidents and more, and do so through increasingly miniaturized design.

Using Flex in High-Speed Applications

The printed circuit board industry makes copper-clad circuits in four different classes, the traditional rigid circuits, flexible circuits, circuits meant for high speed and high frequency, and High Density Interconnect or HDI. Flex or flexible circuits are available in many variations. Traditional flex circuits are popular as they are primarily of low layer-count, are highly flexible, and used in static as well as dynamic motion applications. Static cases are usually applications of a one-time bend—assembly forms the circuit into a specific shape that does not need to flex again.

Flex Circuits' Role in Wearable Electronics

Wearable technology is not exactly new. We have had sophisticated biofeedback devices, hearing aids, Bluetooth technology, insulin pumps, and other wearable products for decades. However, today we have them in much smaller, and they are faster, lighter, and less expensive. All this allows for easier expansions to more applications.
