Rigid Flex Circuit Board Designer

The Rigid-Flex Circuit Board Designer role enables the modeling of rigid-flexible circuit boards within a virtual mock-up and facilitates the collaboration with electronic CAD systems. 

Now you can eliminate these non-value-add expenses and errors by leveraging the power of the Rigid Flex Circuit Board Designer role, which enables the modeling of rigid-flexible circuit boards within a virtual mock-up and facilitates the collaboration with electronic CAD systems. Efficient collaboration helps to optimize design by improving or eliminating the errors associated with disjointed handoffs between flexible circuit board, prototyping and manufacturing. The Rigid Flex Circuit Board Designer role optimizes design efficiency by leveraging a fully automated, streamlined and cost-efficient process for design and development of electronic devices.
