Meeting Flex and Flex-Rigid Design Challenges

PCB deswhitepaperigners working with flex or flex-rigid technology face many challenges, every one of which has the potential to derail a project and cause costly design failures. To deal with these challenges and drive project success, designers have had to rely  on their individual skill and experience, as traditional PCB design tools don’t provide much help in avoiding flex-rigid pitfalls. Today, however, flex and flex-rigid designs are becoming more and more complex so it’s vital that modern design tools understand the unique design constructs and rules that surround flex-rigid designs.

Mentor Graphics Xpedition® guides designers through the minefield of challenges towards first-turn success by providing all the tools needed for successful flex and flex-rigid design and signal integrity  analysis.
