FPC was originally designed to replace large wire harnesses. Simple circuit design is helpful to solve space and weight problems, which cannot be solved by traditional wiring methods. FPC was originally developed as an interconnection device, although it was originally developed more than 20 years ago. Application designers from car stereos and cameras to pacemakers and disk drives benefit from FPCs.
With the rapid development of technology, new products need more compact packaging, more sophisticated impedance and error free product performance. FPC provides packaging engineers with a way to miniaturize circuits, increase functional capacity and improve reliability. In addition to flexibility, flexible circuit boards can also be designed to meet highly complex special configurations, and flexibility can easily withstand harsh operating environments.
New products require space saving, weight saving and higher reliability. Due to these requirements, the FPC technology with a history of 20 years has matured.
