With aeronautics FPCBs, reducing weight and size is crucial. Flexible PCBs weigh up to 75% less than rigid PCBs, making them an ideal solution for these issues. Being light, slim, and easy to implement to replace traditional solutions, flex PCBs have numerous possible applications.
Furthermore, their excellent resistance to vibrations and even the most extreme thermal conditions helps ensure a very high level of reliability.
A few (but far from all) examples of possible applications:
- Antennae and radomes
- Control buttons
- Built-in cameras
- Plane window de-icing
- Detection systems
- Connection systems and electronic harnesses
