Signal Integrity and Radiated Emission of Flexible Printed Circuits

In modern electronics we observe a trend towards ever higher levels of integration. More functionality has to fit in ever smaller spaces. This trend extends over all industry sectors such as the consumer, automotive and industrial markets. While this has been driving the chip industry for several decades, we now observe that the interconnects are increasingly preventing smaller form factors.

The answer to this has been to make the PCBs flexible to fit into given spaces. However, the design tools used for PCBs are still largely planar and have to be adapted to this ‘3D aspect’ of PCB design. Also the effect of the bending on the PCB performance, such as signal integrity and emission has to be studied. This is becoming an increasing concern as the data rates go up.
