Bendable MCPCB can free your imagination and innovation! Bendable MCPCB simplifies complex assembly, straight forward optic design, easily achieve omnidirectional LED and enhance product reliability.
Comparing Bendable MCPCB to traditional MCPCB is similar to FPC comparing to rigid board. They have one characteristic in common– flexibility. Despite the materials different, all processes are almost identical. Besides the material difference in nature, the newly added process is Bending process. This is very common process in traditional mechanical industry but not seen in PCB fabrication.
Consumer product is the largest application for MCPCB, especially, the LED lighting market. Bendable MCPCB has two major benefits in this application. First, improving energy efficiency and second, reducing cost of assembly & complications. LED light applications made with traditional MCPCB, especially LED light bulb. When replacing long lasting incandescent, its divergence angle cannot match its predecessor. It becomes the barrier that traditional LED lamps virtually cannot overcome. In order to achieve omnidirectional that close to incandescent, LED lamps made with traditional MCPCB must utilize soldering & wiring techniques to connect components piece by piece to create a spheroid lighting source. This approach demands expensive manufacturing cost and complicate components assembly. Thanks to introducing of bendable MCPCB, making omnidirectional LED becomes the real successor of century long product - incandescent, in term of energy saving and light performance.
Evolution of electronic devices or appliances is continuing the trend of moving toward miniature and thinner. Because of becoming smaller and thinner, in some designs the heat dissipation had became the obstacle and limitation. Standard MCPCB have greater heat dissipation performance than FR-4. However, for some thinner applications incorporating external heat sink is a tough challenge to integrate due to spacing issue. Thanks to bendable MCPCB, extending or enlarging of bendable copper or aluminum plate, necessity of additional heat sink could be offset. When additional heat sink is a must, it can be re-position in a roomy and better location through adopting bendable MCPCB.
