PICA Global Leader In Manufacturing Flexible Printed Circuits
At PICA Manufacturing Solutions we have the capabilities to produce short and large production runs exceeding a million units produced a year, of flex pcb, rigid flexible circuits, printed circuit boards, flat flexible cables and flexible heaters. With over 22 years in business, over 30 years of experience, and millions of circuits and other applications produced we are confident in our abilities to produce the best products on the market.
Flexible Circuits / Flex PCB
PICA’s engineers have been at the forefront of flexible printed circuit (flexible pcb) technology development since 1995, working with many industries, designing flexible printed circuit interconnect solutions for new products at competitive cost. A PICA focus is impedance controlled circuitry, which is increasingly common in products today, where PICA has extensive experience and empirical data for designing flexible printed circuits that meet signal integrity, mechanical reliability, and cost requirements.
Rigid Flex Circuits
Rigid-Flex circuit boards consist of rigid and flexible substrate laminated together into a single circuit. Plated through holes provide the electrical connection between the different layers. printed circuit boards are very complex; this is an expensive technology and PICA’s engineers are trained to help the customers improving their designs and construction of printed circuit boards to make it more cost effective and reliable.
Flexible Circuit Assembly
PICA Manufacturing Solutions has always been focused on flexible printed circuits applications, so we have expertise in the design, fabrication, and assembly to deliver a reliable solution for any FPC application. Performing all operations in-house also eliminates the miscommunication and production delays often seen with flexible circuit assemblies.
Fine Line Flexible Circuitry
PICA Manufacturing Solutions has invested in Laser Direct Imaging (LDI) capability to manufacture high reliability in fine line circuitry. These circuits can be found in diagnostic imaging, patient monitoring, and hand held medical diagnostic devices. They are also often used in the emerging sensor market in applications such as fingerprint sensing. Coupled with flexible circuitry’s inherently thin profile and light weight, PICA’s fine line flexible circuitry enables the continued shrinking of electronic devices through 3D packaging.
PCB Printed Circuit Boards
PICA offers most types of rigid printed circuit boards; Impedance controlled circuits, HDI constructions, high temperature (Tg>170°), metal clad, high frequency, and heavy copper boards. PICA offers design assistance combined with Asian sourcing and local product support from our regional offices to provide reliable and cost effective solutions for our customers.
PCB Flat Flex Cable
PICA's Flat Flex Cable (FFC) is made of flat high-ductility conductors laminated between layers of dielectric material. The dielectric insulation material is generally either polyester or polyimide. Flat flexible cable can be flexed millions of times, folded into any configuration and can be EMI shielded if necessary. Designed for board-to-board interconnections in electronics. They are compatible with LIF, ZIF, and crimped connector systems.
PICA Manufacturing Solutions can provide customized flat flexible cable assemblies incorporating folds, shields, punching, marking or other mechanical assembly.
