Compunetics, Inc. is newly qualified by Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) (VQE-17-031349) to provide multilayer flex printed circuit boards per MIL-PRF-31032/3 & MIL-PRF-31032/4 certifications and standards. These qualifications, effective 5/4/2017, allow Compunetics to build flexible circuit boards with up to five layers.
Compunetics is certified to MIL-PRF-31032/1 and /2 for rigid PCBs for up 24 layers using FR-4 materials. Additional certifications include the capability to produce PCBs up to 18 layers composed of a mix of FR-4 and ceramic filled hydrocarbon material.
Compunetics is pursuing a new DLA qualification that would certify them to manufacture 14-layer rigid-flex boards. This certification acquisition is expected in the fall of 2017.

There has always been pressure to reduce line and space as we have seen the bleeding edge technology go from 8 mils to 5 mils and then to 3 mils. The difference between “then” and “now” is that the prior advancements, for the most part, used the same processes, chemistry and equipment going from 8 mils to 3 mils. But going from 3 mil to sub 1 mil trace and space is a quantum leap in printed circuit board (PCB) technology that requires a whole new set of processes and materials.

Rigid-flex circuits are unique structures; part rigid board and part flex, they’re increasingly working their way into many of the electronic devices we use every day. There have been many advances in rigid-flex lately as more companies find themselves exploring this technology. So, before I started writing this article about rigid-flex design, I double-checked a few things. Fortunately, there is plenty of rigid-flex information available on a variety of great websites that we all know and trust.
