The birth and development of FPC and PCB gave birth to the new product of flexible and rigid board. Rigid-flex board is a circuit board with FPC characteristics and PCB characteristics formed by a flexible circuit board and a rigid circuit board. So, what are the application and development prospects of flexible and rigid boards?
The rigid-flex board has both the stability of the rigid board and the three-dimensional assembly of the flexible board, and the development prospect is very considerable. In 2019, the global market size of flexible and rigid boards is about 1.66 billion US dollars, accounting for only about 2.8% of all circuit boards; but including smartphones, wireless headsets, drones, cars, AR/VR equipment, etc. are the growth rates in 2019 The highest product, and in the case of more and more subsequent use, the rigid-flex board is still the product with the most growth kinetic energy in 2020. It is estimated that in 2022, the value of the global rigid-flex board market will reach nearly 2.3 billion US dollars, accounting for about 3.3% of the global circuit board output value.
Mobile device usage is the largest flexible and rigid board market in 2019, accounting for about 43% of the total flexible and rigid board market, including smartphone camera lenses, screen signal connections, battery modules, etc. The demand for flexible and rigid boards is huge. promote. Especially in the use of smartphone camera lenses, because multi-lens mobile phones have become the design trend of various mobile phone brands, whether it is the increase in the demand for flexible and rigid boards, or the increase in the average unit price, the market share of mobile devices will increase. proportion.
The development of mobile phone lens flex-rigid board is mainly due to the lightweight, thinning and high-density requirements of mobile phone lenses, which all require the use of flex-rigid boards. In addition, considering many factors such as placement position, orientation, signal interference, heat dissipation, and standard setting, and some lenses use periscope structure design due to optical zoom requirements, mobile phone lenses can meet increasingly stringent space constraints. , from the appearance of a variety of different types, the technical requirements for the rigid-flex board are more and more demanding, and its use is more extensive.
