Multilayer Flex PCB By Feature

Single-Sided Flexible PCB

The Single-Sided Flexible PCB has one conductive copper layer that is bonded in between the two insulating polyimide layers. Its common stack-up goes from coverlay, copper, and flex core. In addition, it has EMI and RF shielding films.

2-Layer Flexible PCB

The 2-Layer Flexible PCB is composed of two conductive layers that have an insulating polyimide in between the external polyimide layers. In addition, it has a common stack-up that goes from coverlay, copper, flex core, copper, and coverlay.

4-Layer Flexible PCB

The 4-Layer Flexible PCB offers much higher circuit density than a lower-layered count of flexible boards. In addition, it has a wide temperature range, thus, making it ideal for high-current applications and a highly reliable alternative.

6-Layer Flexible PCB

The 6-Layer Flexible PCB has a wide variety of options in its board thickness and copper thickness, depending on your desired applications. In terms of its capabilities, it has enhanced thermal management and offers more durability and reliability.

8-Layer Flexible PCB

The 8-Layer Flexible PCB can operate in extreme temperatures because of its wide operating temperature range. Moreover, it has enhanced signal quality, impedance control, and reliability. Thus, they are ideal for communications.

10-Layer Flexible PCB

The 10-Layer Flexible PCB offers less curing time in applying its prepreg layer. After its prepreg cures, they are already suitable for users and services. In addition, it has enhanced mechanical strength that protects the board from damage.

What is Multilayer Flexible PCB?

If a board has three or more conductive layers with insulating layers between the internal and external polyimide layer, it is called Multilayer Flex PCB.

One of the popular ways of providing circuit connection throughout its circuit is by PTH. Moreover, it can be constructed in the most common way, such as coverlay, copper, flex core, copper, adhesive, flex core, copper, and coverlay.

Its flex core materials come with a standard thickness of ½ mil up to 4 mils for its adhesive or adhesiveness construction. Also, its traditional copper thicknesses are 1/3 oz to 2 oz in rolled annealed (RA) or electrodeposited format (ED).

Design of Multilayer Flex Circuit Boards

One of the reasons why Multilayer Flex PCB is widespread among different applications is because of its higher component density. Thus, we’d like to share with you its design.

The board’s design is one of the contributing factors that make a product beneficial to the consumers; hence, knowing its layout can help you understand how this happens.

Generally, this particular board comprises eight (8) conductive layers with resistive foils. It enhances its flexibility through surfaces that is left unbonded. They are built to offer better performance and excellent efficiency at a smaller footprint.

As a result, various compact design devices, such as smartphones, cameras, and tablets, have shown their interest in this board due to its efficient performance.

Stack-up of Multilayer Flex PCB

In order to have additional circuitry on the board, a PCB Stack-Up is essential. Then, it will be possible with the help of various PCB Panel layers.

As mentioned previously, this particular board comprises at least three to eight conductive layers that are compressed for a much simpler-looking design.

To put it simply, the Multilayer Flex PCB has a stack-up composed of multiple single-sided copper clad laminates (CCL), adhesive + coverlay (CVL) pressed against each other. As for its wirings, it is connected through a Plated-Through Hole.

We are meticulous in stacking this specific board to satisfy particular design specifications. Additionally, due to their many layers, they need a more careful manufacturing procedure than Single-Sided Flexible and Double-Sided Flexible PCBs.
