PCB Membrane Switches

PCB Membrane Switch constructions utilize a printed circuit board (PCB) which can serve a dual purpose in your membrane switch design. With a PCB membrane switch, the PCB can serve as a rigid support backer, as well as a durable and reliable method to incorporate LED’s, resistors, LCD’s and other components.

PCB Membrane Switches

PCB membrane keyboards offer you a variety of design options:

PCB Switches are usually more expensive than Silver Flex membrane keypads, but can accommodate more complex and dense circuit patterns. A PCB membrane switch also allows the electronic components to be “hard-soldered” into the PCB, whereas membrane switch components are placed using a polymer thick film conductive paste.
