HDI Flex-rigid printed circuit boards from PCBCART

PCBCART, a professional PCB manufacturer and assembler with a successful track record spanning over 14 years, offers prototype to mass production of HDI flex-rigid PCBs. By combining HDI technology with flex-rigid printed circuit boards, HDI flex-rigid PCB is an optimal solution for full flexibility. It can be bent, folded or twisted to fit devices in a way no other PCBs can, which ultimately reduces space requirements, enhances performance, brings greater stability and improved durability. On the other hand, the incorporation of HDI technology reduces component weight, optimizes packaging utilization, improves reliability and eliminates the need for fragile wiring and additional interface connections. Because of those benefits, HDI Flex-rigid PCB is widely used in a variety of applications, from terminal communication and supercomputing to military and aerospace systems. Additionally, the reduced space and weight of HDI flex-rigid PCB entails that it is extremely useful in wearable technologies and medical devices. It has also been successfully incorporated into sensors, tools and vision systems.
