New Product–2L FPC Coil Board with Bumped Point

  In September, 2018, in order to provide customers with the most suitable products and the most satisfactory services, Best Technology released a new product—-2L FPC Coil Board with Bumped Point. This product was developed on the basis of the old version. The surface of the old one is flat. For this reason, it will cause poor contact when assemble with a conductive film.  

  Could you tell the difference between the old one and the new one? If not, hoping this article can solve your puzzle.

New Version VS Old Version
Picture1:New Version VS Old Version

  There is an obvious difference—-the new version has bumped point, but the old one is opposite. So what is the advantage of 2L FPC Coil Board with Bumped Point? The new one with bumped point, it will get easier to connect when assemble with a conductive film. Because the shortcoming of the old one, we have improved with advanced technology, adding bumped points in the flex printed board. And it is easier to connect when the pad is attached with the conductive film.

  From the following picture, we can see that the new version is single-sided flexible circuit board with bumped point.

Happy ending in 2017, New Challenge in 2018!

In 2017, All the guys in Best Technology have many good and warm memories. Everyone has worked hard, and was busy for US$500 sales target in the past year 2017. Finally, we finished the sales goal successfully. On Jan 28th, 2018, Best Technology hosted a wonderful evening party to celebrate the new year. We will keep going and do the best partner of flexible printed circuit board in Asia.

Everyone has worked hard

Top Flex Circuit Turnout Companies in 2010

According to IPC data, the flex circuits is still in a big growth process in 2010, and 2011 can see a big increasing of flex circuit whole circuit board industry. Here’re the top sales  in 2010 on the Earth.

Name        (Chinese)           Area        Sales Turnout (million us dollars)

NIPPON MEKTRON     (旗胜)    Japan           2,220

The PCB raw material rise in price

International copper prices surged in the latter part of last year,this directly impact the price of copper foil. Since last September it raised month by month. It is reported that February is still raising 8% to 10%, and don’t eliminate to reset to higher prices again in March.

The substantial price rise of the copper foil directly influences the CCL and PCB industry. In February, both the thick and thin CCL had raised 5%-8%. Fiberglass had risen 20%. The PCB industry have gradually turned the corner also had to rise in price. The PCB industry improved obviously in the first quarter this year since last year’s downturn. The price of fiberglass appears a rose space .

On the side, the RMB appreciate against USD dollar, furthermore, gold and copper price, still keep rising since late last year. Especially CCL have also rised this year, this made PCB manufacturers under much pressure, more than 10% of the products had been raised the prices. Some few manufacturers are still keep communicating with their customers recently.

The basic knowledge of PCB

I saw some basic knowledge about PCB, today I summarized it and I want to share with you now.

1. Definitions:

For standard PCB, it is the combination of bare board and components on it. While for bare board PCB, it is called printed wiring board. We usually call it PWB.

(1) Traces:

The base material of PCB is comprised of dielectric, heat insulation, uneasy to bend materials. On its surface, we can see thin traces, its material is copper. Originally the copper covered the whole PCB. Parts of it were etched during the process of production. Those parts left become net-like thin traces, which are called conductor pattern, and are used to provide circuit connection for components on PCB.

(2) Name of two side:

On most common single sided PCB, components are on one side, conductor pattern is on the other side. Then we would need to drill holes on the board, so that pins can put through the board to the other side. Therefore, the both sides of PCB are called component side and solder side.

(3) Gold finger:

Gold finger is functioned to connect two PCBs. We usually insert the gold finger of one PCB to the proper slot of the other PCB. 

(4) Solder mask and silk screen:

The green or white oil on PCB is called solder mask, which is functioned as dielectric protective layer, can protects copper traces and also can prevent components to be soldered at incorrect place.

On the dielectric layer, a layer of silk screen will be printed. Some words will be printed to show the position of those components. It is also called legend.

FPC Application Market Analysis

The market of FPCs applied on hard disk still can secure a place, although its growth rate is lower. The speed of NAND replacing the hard disk won’t be so fast. At present in the times of information explosion, the quantity of storage increases rapidly. The hard disk can corresponds very well. However NAND doesn’t work. Although NAND’price reduces quickly too, it can’t match the increasing speed of mainstream storage density. There are only 6 manufacturers of hard disks, and the quantity will reduce; while the number of FPC manufacturers is much larger. They have little space to discuss the price. Meanwhile, the patterns of FPCs needed for hard disk are so unitary. All of those determine that the growth of FPC in hard disk market is strong.

The situation in optical drive industry is similar to that in  hard disk industry, thanks to the increase of Blue Ray. The market of FPC in printer is also relatively stable. The electronics of automobiles is obvious too. On the occasion of using ECU, FPCs are always needed. They are of high reliability and space superiority.
