Our board types

Semi-Flex / Flex To Fit

Semi-flex circuits offer a low cost alternative to conventional flex-rigid technology, avoiding the need for traditional connective materials which can increase the cost of assembly.

More info


Polyimide flex circuits are thin and light, having the ability to be folded and positioned into the smallest area.  This makes them ideal for applications such as wearable devices and pacemakers.

More info

RF Boards

RF Microwave, radio frequency and microwave PCBs are designed for medium to extremely high frequency using a range of material such as PTFE, ceramics and epoxy glass.

More info

Flex Rigid

Using a combination of flexible and rigid technologies, these PCBs are used in applications where space is at a premium.

More info


High Density Interconnect to 6-N-6 with stack blind and buried microvias to achieve a higher wiring density.

More info


Traditional rigid printed circuit boards are a robust, low cost option and perfect for automatic assembly production.
