Chip-on-Flex, or COF, refers to the semiconductor wherein the microchip is specifically mounted on and electrically associated with a flexible circuit (a circuit-based on an adaptable substrate rather than the typical printed circuit board).
Consequently, in a COF assemble, the microchip doesn't need to experience all the customary gathering steps required for singular IC packaging. This rearranges the general procedure of designing and manufacturing the final product while enhancing its execution because of the shorter interconnection ways.
The major drivers for the growth of the market are expanding requirement for little and adaptable hardware in different applications; for example, shows, sensors, lighting, biomedical implants, and radio frequency identification among others and the fast, innovative progressions that prompt precise plans and computerized generation of flex circuits that disposes human mistakes once associated with hand-manufactured wire outfits.
With the utilization of these adaptable circuit board organizations there will be 100% effectiveness guaranteed in the items, because of which the level of fault ratio is radically diminished. Chip on flex helps decrease the cost, enhances administrator ergonomics, opens up the item quality, and tests repeatability. However, the cost and complexities related to the development of the product will act as a restraint for the market. The opportunity lies in the fact that the technologies that drive the chip on flex are constantly developed and can be used more efficiently & effectively.
The chip on flex market is divided into type, application, verticals, and geography. The type is further divided into single sided chip on flex and others.
