Flex Circuit, Rigid Flex Circuit, PCBA, and Optical Flex Assemblies
IPC-6012/6013 CLASS III, TYPES 1–4
PCB/Flex Circuit Assemblies are an alternative to standard wire or ribbon cable in electrical wire interconnect systems. Designed to reduce size and weight — and improve reliability — Flexible Printed Circuits (FPC) utilize thin layers of polymer film as a dielectric sandwiched between conductive circuit patterns etched into layers of copper foil cladding. After connectorization, these low-profile, lightweight assemblies may be installed directly within an electronic equipment housing as a turnkey sub-assembly.

Space-grade Series 28 HiPer-D to Series 80 Mighty Mouse I/O jumper: a tight space-constrained rectangular-to-circular solutionSpace-grade Micro-D flex assembly with NASA EEE-INST-002 screeningFlex circuit assemblies are ideal for space-constrained electronic packages and enclosures, or for interconnect systems that are required to flex in 3 axes during normal use. Flex circuitry offers complete freedom to design boards and wiring for even the most densely-packed electronic enclosures. In mission-critical applications, the ability to reduce or even eliminate discrete wiring and boards in favor of flex circuitry helps designers make the most efficient use of available space.

Glenair Integrated Flex Circuit Assemblies: A Unique Value Proposition
Dupont or Panasonic Flex Circuit Assembly Materials
Glenair uses Dupont or Panasonic materials in our turnkey flex circuit assemblies in accordance with IPC 4204A/11.
Dupont - Pyralux® AP Copper-Clad Laminate
DuPont™ Pyralux® AP is an all polyimide double sided copper clad laminate that is the industry standard in terms of thermal, chemical and mechanical properties. It is ideal for use in rigid flex and multilayer flex applications which require advanced performance, such as low dissipation loss for high speed, high frequency, thermal resistance and high reliability. These clads provide designers and fabricators outstanding options in building circuits with high reliability and yield for controlled impedance and high-performance applications.
Panasonic - Felios Flex - Adhesiveless Flexible Laminates
Panasonic Felios is the ideal choice for technically advanced multi-layer, rigid-flex, double and single-sided applications. Felios Flex is an engineered, all polyimide substrate with premium copper foil bonded on either one or two sides.
