When Should I Choose to Use Rigid PCBs?

May. 10, 2022

Rigid PCBs are robust, inflexible printed circuit boards. We all know that PCBs can be single-sided PCBs, double-sided PCBs or multilayer PCBs. at the same time, PCBs can be rigid, flexible or a combination of rigid and flexible (a combination of rigid and flexible PCBs).

Therefore, a rigid circuit board is a circuit board that we can not bend or deform. It is not flexible. Once rigid boards are manufactured, they cannot be modified or folded into any other shape.

All the rigid solid PCBs you see on the market in your daily life, such as computer motherboards or cell phone PCBs, are examples of Rigid PCBs.

Rigid PCBs are the most traditional form of circuit board in the PCB world. They are still very popular today and are used in many products used by consumers on a daily basis. TOPFAST introduces you to the advantages and applications of Rigid PCBs.

When to use rigid PCBs

Rigid PCBs are a good choice if you are looking for a cost-effective option that can be produced in high volume. They also tend to be more durable than other boards, such as flexible PCBs, for example, so rigid PCBs with higher circuit density are a perfect choice if you are looking for a hard-wearing board.

Rigid boards are particularly popular in products and industries where component retention is critical, as they can cope with heat and high levels of stress over their lifetime.


Applications for Rigid PCBs

Rigid PCBs are used in many everyday products that we rely on to work and communicate, such as

Global positioning system devices

Computers, tablets and cell phones

X-Ray machines

Heart monitors

CAT scans

MRI systems

Aircraft cockpit instruments

Temperature sensors

Control tower instrumentation
