Aurora, Colo. (PRWEB) July 15, 2006
Advanced Circuits, the country’s leading source for quick-turn printed circuit boards (PCB), today announced a five day guaranteed lead time for flexible circuit board delivery. In the printed circuit board industry that is rapidly growing, Advanced Circuits is working to meet the increased PCB demand with optimal customer satisfaction.
According to DKN Research, the global flex board market will see a 12.6 percent annual volume growth and a 10.9 percent revenue increase through 2010.
Increasing Demand For Printed Circuit Boards
This projected growth can be accredited to the ever growing number of new electronic devices making it to market that demand the unique features of flex circuit boards including reduced packaging size and higher reliability. In addition, the decreasing cost of purchasing flex circuits make this option more cost effective.
Five Day Lead Time Guaranteed On PCB Orders
“By guaranteeing a five day lead time, we are saving our customers a very valuable commodity – time. It is typical in the flex board industry for lead time to take two to six weeks, which does not sufficiently accommodate the time-sensitive demands our customers are dealing with,” said John Yacoub, president and CEO of Advanced Circuits. “We know that our customer’s time is valuable and we are doing everything we can to ensure that as the industry grows we deliver the highest quality and best services available.”
How To Avoid Common Mistakes in Flex Design
In addition to its quick-turn delivery, Advanced Circuits provides valuable tools for flex board design engineers including design tips, design guidelines and flex circuit diagrams. The “10 Most Common Mistakes in Flex Design”, one of these tools, is a list of potential design errors and a popular resource on Advanced Circuits’ website. It provides engineers with guidance on how to avoid common errors, thus avoiding costly delays and ensuring on time shipment.
Flexible printed circuits are designed to be flexible and durable for projects with fine line traces, high-density circuitry, high temperatures and space restrictions. Flex circuits are primarily used to accommodate extremely small areas, a need that is most commonly seen in industries such as medical electronics, military, aerospace, disc drive/storage and optics. However, as products are becoming smaller, many more industries are using flex circuits for their products.
