Flexible polyimide PCBs
« on: December 17, 2016, 08:59:13 am »
I'm looking for some board fab in flexible polyimide.
Small batch of about 10 boards for prototyping, or even just a few, depending on the economics.

135 x 17mm dimensions.
2 layer copper, and "typical" cheap design rules, i.e. 6/6 with 13 thou smallest drills.

Can anyone recommend a cheap place?

See this thread for a possible solution (or not)
https://www.eevblog.com/forum/manufacture/seeed-studio-flexible-circuit-board-service/

IIRC besides Seeed studio I think some other similar vendors had some flex services advertised.
Elecrow?  Itead? 

Check pcbshopper too, maybe they have a quoting system for the kind of PCB you need.

I need a flexible PCB in 135mm x 17mm, and Seeed apparently only supports a width up to 100mm.
(2-layer needed, and nothing really tight in design rules.)

Any other recommendations?

Try Elecrow. I was quoting them for custom PCBs recently, I'm not sure, but I think they have a custom size flex PCB service.
