Why create stackups with Speedstack Flex??
Speedstack Flex allows PCB fabricators and OEM engineers to create and document flex-rigid PCB layer stackups using the Speedstack family of PCB design tools.
What will Speedstack Flex do for me?
Easy graphical stackup display
Speedstack Flex Navigator – click to view full graphic
Speedstack Flex supports documentation of common flex-rigid constructions, including doublets where stacked pairs of flex link two rigid sections of the flex-rigid construction together. The navigator works from a master stack comprising the full set of materials used in the final stackup and documents each rigid and flex-rigid section with as many "substacks" as needed for your design. There are no limits to the number of substacks, or layercount of the total build.
A range of materials including flexible adhesives, bond ply and FlexiCore can be enabled or disabled for each layer, and impedance structures can be added to each sub-stack.
Mesh / Crosshatch ground planes
When used in conjunction with Si8000m and Si9000e field solvers, Speedstack Flex also permits the modeling and documentation of mesh / crosshatch ground planes from within the Speedstack Flex environment. Mesh geometry and structure data is easily shared between Si8000m and Si9000e using the clipboard.
Enhanced rules allow impedance structures to be added when coverlays exist internally within a stack. When a coverlay is beyond the outer copper it will behave like a coating, when internal it will behave like a bondply or prepreg

Without Speedstack Flex...
Flex-rigid PCB manufacture can be expensive in money and time and using the traditional, informal methods of exchanging stackup information is prone to misinterpretation as the stack is passed around the supply chain. Errors in stack documentation can all too easily result in board scrappage and remanufacture.
Interactive Speedstack Flex brings reduced cost and enhanced reporting capability...
Speedstac Flex for cost control
High quality error-free documentation
Documents can be exported in a range of industry-standard formats including JPEG, Gerber and PDF files so that every company and individual within the fabrication process, from PCB fabricators to brokers, can have the same clear instructions and parameters.
