Flex pcb stackup

A flexible printed circuit board (flex PCB) stackup typically consists of several layers of flexible material,

such as polyimide, with conductive traces and vias connecting them.

The number of layers and their arrangement can vary depending on the specific application and design requirements.

A typical flex PCB stackup may include the following layers:

1. Coverlay: A protective layer that covers the top and bottom surfaces of the flex PCB and provides insulation and protection against environmental factors.

2. Copper layer: A layer of copper foil that serves as the conductive layer for the flex PCB. The copper layer is etched to create the desired circuit pattern.

3. Adhesive layer: A layer of adhesive material that bonds the copper layer to the flexible substrate.

4. Polyimide substrate: A flexible material that provides the base for the flex PCB. The polyimide substrate is typically a few mils thick and can be single or double-sided.

5. Adhesive layer: Another layer of adhesive material that bonds the polyimide substrate to the copper layer on the other side.

6. Copper layer: Another layer of copper foil that serves as the conductive layer for the other side of the flex PCB.

7. Coverlay: Another layer of protective coverlay that covers the bottom surface of the flex PCB.

The number and arrangement of layers can vary depending on the specific design requirements.

For example, a flex PCB may have multiple layers of copper and polyimide substrate,

with vias connecting them to create a complex circuit pattern.

The stackup may also include additional layers for shielding, impedance control, or other purposes.
