For designs with more traditional outer layers – where components will be mounted/soldered to the inner flexible layers – it allows interconnection to another rigid section of the same PCB. Or, to a connector that terminates at another point in the system design.
This technology reduces the need for bulky cables within a system. It also saves time and money at the system assembly level, resulting in a cleaner, and typically even more compact housing at the top level assembly.
