Unitech Growing Rigid-flex PCB Shipments for AirPods


Reading time ( words)

Unitech Printed Circuit Board has been ramping up rigid-flex PCB shipments for Apple's AirPods 2, the order visibility for which has extended through early 2020 at least, according to a Digitimes report.

This is despite market speculation that AirPods 3—reportedly to hit the market by the end of 2019—may feature a brand-new internal design adopting SiP (system in package) technology instead of rigid-flex board combination.
