1 PCi Valu Builds for Rigid Flex Stable, robust builds for cost effective rigid flex.

2 PCi Valu Builds Overview Valu Builds are a set of low cost materials, with yield friendly design guidelines, to produce a cost effective rigid flex solution for PWB designers who are new to rigid flex, or need a value solution to their electronic packaging needs.

3 PCi Valu Builds Overview Valu Builds offer you: Low cost rigid flex nominal 37, or less, per square inch per layer, versus 45 Simple solution High reliability Better manufacturing yield Thinner, less weight, form fitting electronics Shorter lead times Easy entry point for those new to rigid flex Stepping stone to more advanced rigid flex design Comprehensive solution RA wrought foil, rather than ED, for maximum flex endurance life UL 94 V-0 approved RoHS compliant Polyimide for lead free assembly One solution dynamic or flex to install applications

4 PCi Valu Builds Overview Seven Layups Available: Certifications: 4 Layer IPC Class II and III 6 Layer UL 94 V-0 6 Layer with quad flex RoHS 6 Layer with 2 doublets Mil-PRF-31032, Mil-P Layer 8 Layer with quad flex 8 Layer with 2 doublets 10 Layer 10 Layer with quad flex 10 Layer with 2 doublets

5 PCi Valu Builds Design Rules Thickness tolerance: ± 10% Line spacing: / and greater on innerlayers Line spacing /0.004 and greater on outerlayers Conventional Vias: drilled and greater Pad size: drilled via Copper plate: minimum in hole Mechanical dimension tolerance: ± Feature to edge distance: min Feature to rigid/flex transition: min Feature e to routed profile tol.: ± Feature to flex profile laser tol.: ± All flex arms must terminate in rigid area (no scribe and break) No fillets (beading at rigid/flex interface) Hole prep: desmear no 3 point etchback 25% or less X outs per array Pad finish: ENIG, HASL Soldermask: Taiyo PSR 4000 green Electrically tested and certified DRC run on your data prior to build Cost adders: Controlled impedance Laser, blind or buried vias Button plating High pot testing One time tooling charges: NRE Electrical Test Fixture
