Flexible PCB Cost: Why It’s More Expensive and How to Reduce It

Flexible printed circuit boards (flexible PCBs or flex circuit boards) offer unmatched form factor benefits but come at a premium price compared to rigid PCBs – the average flexible PCB cost is 5-10 times higher due to expensive base materials like polyimide, complex manufacturing processes, and customizations like stiffeners and controlled impedances. However, there are ways to minimize flexible PCB pricing, such as reducing layer counts, ordering in higher volumes, simplifying designs with less drilling, and using rigid-flex combinations which can substantially cut costs. Careful design choices allow taking advantage of flex circuits’ compact nature without overpaying. This guide explains the key cost drivers behind flexible circuit board pricing and provides actionable tips to reduce expenses when specifying flex PCBs for your next project.

What Are Flexible PCB Stiffeners?

Flexible PCB stiffeners provide mechanical support and rigidity to specific areas of flex circuits. This guide explores why and how stiffeners are utilized. It covers common stiffener materials like FR-4, polyimide (PI), and metals like stainless steel/aluminum, detailing their properties. Learn when stiffeners are needed – for mounting components, meeting ZIF connector specs, or controlling bend areas. Discover attachment methods like thermal bonding and pressure-sensitive adhesives. Properly applied stiffeners enhance flex PCB reliability, durability and performance.
