Mentor Video: What You Need to Know About Rigid-Flex Design


Reading time ( words)

Rigid-flex technology is one of the fastest-growing areas in electronics product design.

From smart devices to sensors, to automotive and beyond, rigid-flex is now used in nearly every industry. Why? Because rigid-flex technology empowers electronics companies to meet today’s most challenging environment and form-factor requirements. Rigid-flex not only lets you create designs that are smaller, thinner and lighter, it improves product performance and reliability by eliminating mechanical connectors and cables.

This on-demand webinar will show you how PADS Professional's rigid-flex technology simplifies the rigid-flex design process, from stack-up definition through to manufacturing hand-off. The presenters are Technical Marketing Engineering Manager John McMillan and Technical Marketing Engineer Brent Klingforth, both of Mentor, a Siemens business.

What you will learn:

• Requirements for flex design
• When and where arced structures are required
• How to design a proper stack-up
• Automation specific to flex design
