What is the difference between PCB hard board and FPC soft boar

  • POE Technology is a circuit board manufacturer specializing in the manufacture and assembly of printed circuit boards. It has been focusing on the production of single, double-sided, and multilayer circuit boards for more than 20 years. It can provide multi-layer PCB board proofing and small batch production services such as impedance boards, HDI boards, and blind buried via boards. The following introduces the difference between pcb prototype manufacturer hard boards and FPC soft boards.

    The difference between PCB hard board and FPC soft board
    Rigid PCB: It is often used as a motherboard and cannot be bent.
    Rigid board: PCB (printed circuit board); flexible board: FPC or FPCB (flexible printed circuit board); rigid board: RFPC or RFPCB (Rigid-Flex Printed Circuit Board). Adopt a new type of wiring board. The hard board part has the same thickness and strength as the PCB circuit board, which can install electronic components and withstand certain mechanical forces. The soft board part is usually used to achieve three-dimensional installation. The use of soft board allows the entire rigid-flex board to be bent locally.

    Flexible board: FPC is also called flexible circuit board, which can be bent.
    Flexible printed circuit boards (FPC), also known as flexible circuit boards, flexible circuit boards, are favored for their light weight, thin thickness, free bending and folding and other characteristics. Relying on manual visual inspection, the cost is high, and the efficiency is low. With the rapid development of the electronics industry, circuit board design has become more and more precise and dense. Traditional manual inspection methods can no longer meet production needs, and automatic Flexible PCB defect inspection has become an inevitable trend in the development of the industry.
