What are the pros and cons of FPC wiring

What are the pros and cons of FPC wiring?Here's a brief overview:

FPC (flexible circuit board) is a type of PCB, also known as "soft board".FPC flexible such as polyimide or polyester film base material is made, with wiring high density, light weight, thin thickness, flexible, quality advantage, sensitivity to receive millions of times of dynamic bending without broken wires, in accordance with the spatial layout for any move and scale, complete 3 d assembly, arrived in components and wire connection integration equipped effect, the advantage of the circuit board can't compare with the rest of the category.

Advantages: The use of FPC can greatly reduce the volume and weight of electronic products, suitable for high density, miniaturization, high reliability direction of electronic products.Therefore, FPC is widely used in aerospace, military, mobile communications, portable computers, computer peripherals, PDA, digital camera and other fields or products.In addition, it can also according to the spatial layout requirements of arbitrary organization, and in three-dimensional space arbitrary movement and flexibility, so as to achieve the integration of components installation and wire connection.

Cons: Cost should be the most important consideration in the production process.Since soft FPCS are designed and manufactured for special use, the initial cost of circuit planning, wiring, and photographic underplates is high.Unless there is a special need to use soft FPC, generally a few use, it is best not to use.In addition, since a lot of effort has been put into doing it, maintenance is naturally necessary in the later stage, so tin welding and rework require trained personnel to operate.
