Flexible Printed Circuits (FPC) are an enabling technology for portable communications, medical and military equipment. Made of thin dielectric substrate & high ductility metal foil, flexible printed circuits can be bent or folded and used in static and dynamic applications.
Rigid Flex construction consists of rigid and flexible substrate laminated together into a single circuit. Plated through holes provide the electrical connection between the different layers. Rigid Flex designs are very complex; they require high levels of skills and knowledge.
Printed Circuit Boards (PCB) are playing an important role in the miniaturization of our electronic devices along with integrated circuits and passive components. PICA offers all types of Rigid Printed Circuit Boards from single sided through high layer count multilayers.
Flat Flexible Cables (FFC) are designed for board-to-board interconnection, combining easy-of use, reliability and definite cost advantage. Flat Flexible Cables are made of flat high-ductility conductors laminated between two layers of dielectric material in a continuous manner.
PICA Manufacturing Solutions has invested in Laser Direct Imaging (LDI) capability to manufacture high reliability flex circuits. These circuits can be found in diagnostic imaging, patient monitoring, and hand held medical diagnostic devices. They are also often used in the emerging sensor market in applications such as fingerprint sensing.
Flexible heaters provide fast heat-up and cool-down rates, uniform heat distribution and high temperature performance. PICA Manufacturing Solutions designs and builds etched foil flexible heaters which are thin, bendable and shaped to fit almost any type of equipment. Heat can be applied to the most complex shapes, geometries.
