The PCB board thickness of 0.3mm belongs to a thinner type compared to the regular PCB boards, but it is not considered to be an ultra-thin circuit board. Generally speaking, PCB board thickness below 0.2mm is called ultra-thin board.

What is the process limit for ultra-thin circuit boards?

At present, the process limit of ultra-thin circuit board is mainly limited by the production materials, production process and circuit design. The different materials used in the production process affect the mechanical strength, electrical properties and thermal stability of the circuit board. The production process, such as copper plating thickness, hole wall copper thickness, etc. will also affect the performance of the circuit board. In addition, the circuit design also affects the difficulty and reliability of making ultra-thin circuit board.

Therefore, there is no specific value for the process limit of ultra-thin circuit board, which is affected by a variety of factors. However, PCB below 0.3mm thickness generally require special fabrication processes and materials to ensure their reliability and stability.

What are the uses of ultra-thin circuit board?

Since ultra-thin circuit board have the advantages of small size, light weight, compact structure, and easy mass production, they are widely used in various electronic products, such as cell phones, laptops, tablet PCs, digital cameras, and so on. In addition, ultra-thin circuit board are also widely used in weak electrical components that require surface mounting, such as automotive electronics, medical devices, sensors, and so on. Ultra-thin circuit board play an important role in improving product performance, reducing product size, and lowering production costs.

Ultra-thin circuit board is an electronic component assembly technology that realizes miniaturization, high density and high performance of electronic devices by forming conductive paths on insulated substrates. The advantages of ultra-thin circuit board lie in their light weight, high conductivity and ease of processing, making them widely used in various electronic devices.

Ultra-thin circuit board can be categorized into two main types according to the manufacturing process: flexible circuit board and rigid circuit board. Flexible circuit board are based on polyimide or polyester film, which has good bending and flexibility, and is suitable for a variety of irregularly shaped packages and mobile device assembly. Rigid circuit board are based on copper-clad laminates, which have higher stability and durability and are suitable for the assembly of various fixed devices.

The manufacturing process for ultra-thin circuit board involves several steps. First, a conductive path needs to be formed on the insulating substrate using chemical or physical copper plating. The conductive paths are then machined into the desired shape and connections using processes such as photolithography and etching, depending on the circuit design requirements. Next, surface treatments such as chemical gold plating or nickel-gold plating are required to improve conductivity and corrosion resistance. Finally, inspection and testing are performed to ensure the quality and reliability of the circuit board.

Ultra-thin circuit board are widely used in various electronic devices. For example, in mobile devices such as cell phones and laptops, the use of flexible circuit board enables the connection between various components such as batteries, screens, cameras, etc. and the motherboard. In automotive, aerospace and other high-reliability fields, the use of rigid circuit board can realize the efficient and reliable connection of various sensors, controllers and other equipment. In addition, ultra-thin circuit board have a wide range of applications in medical, military, scientific research and other fields.
