A flexible module is a cost effective Flexible Printed Circuit made of a flexible cable with electronic components. Various soldering/welding processes are available for fixing the components onto the cable:
- Selective soldering system ensures optimum soldering while minimizing the heat stress for the component. It is ideal for conventional Thru Hole Components.
- Reflow soldering is for soldering SMD components which have been placed by Pick & Place equipment.
- Resistance welding is the best for safely welding a component with pins to the end of the cable. Welded points are later overmolded or potted in order to secure the weld.
