What is a Rigid PCB?
A Rigid PCB is an inflexible PCB that uses a strong solid substrate material such as fiberglass that remains the board from twisting or curving in any manner. Rigid Printed Circuit Board’s can be very handy as they are designed using copper and aluminum substrates and high temperature laminates. High temperature laminates provide protection from engine heat and surroundings impurity.
Applications and Benefits of Rigid PCB
- Rigid PCB’s are generally used in electronic devices such as laptops, desktop computers, television sets, toys etc. due to their low cost.
- In the medical sector, they are used in tomography equipment, electromyography machines and magnetic resonance imaging systems due to their large size and non-portable characteristics.
- In aerospace industry, they are used in Auxiliary Power Units (APU), airplane cockpit instrumentation and temperature sensors due to their high temperature handling capability.
- They are also used in AC/DC power converters, Electronic computer units and transmission sensors as they can be constructed with plated copper base for high durability.
PCB Directory has listed the leading Rigid PCB fabricators and manufacturers and made them searchable through their location and capabilities. You can select the country or state to narrow down on local PCB manufacturers or companies that can develop your printed circuit boards who are close to where you are located. In addition to this, you can also select the capabilities that you are looking for in a PCB vendor, like - Number of Layers, Type of Board, board thickness etc. - We narrow down the list to show you the companies who can cater to your requirement.
