FPC stands for flexible printed circuit, sometimes also referred to as flexible circuit or flexible circuit. it’s an electronic component developed to form electronic products smaller and lighter. it’s been widely utilized in the us and Europe since the 1980s, then cosmopolitan round the world.
Flexible circuits (FPCs) are widely used as the core components of all electronic products, such as cameras, computers and peripherals, mobile phones, video and audio units, portable cameras, printers, DVD, TFT LCD, satellite equipment, military equipment and medical instruments due to their excellent work efficiency and strong heat resistance.
Reasons for using flexible printed circuit
- Reduce weight and space,
- Meet the requirements of dynamic deflection
- Make installation and maintenance easier
- Impedance control
- Improve reliability and repeatability
- Thermal management
- Improve aesthetics
- Eliminate connectors
- Provide uniform electrical characteristics for high speed circuits
- Reduce assembly costs
