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

Hard board: PCB, commonly used as the main board, can not be bent.

Printed Circuit Board: PCB (Printed Circuit Board); Flexible attached Circuit Board: FPC or FPCB; Soft and hard Board: RFPC or RFPCB (Rigid Flex Printed Circuit Board), as the name implies, is both hard Board and soft Board characteristics of a new line Board. The hard part, like the PCB, has a certain thickness and strength, which can install electronic components and bear a certain mechanical force, while the soft part is usually used for three-dimensional installation. The use of the soft board makes the whole soft and hard board locally flexible.

Soft board: FPC, also known as flexible circuit board, can be bent.

FlexiblePrintedCircuit (FPC), also known as flexible circuit board, flexible circuit board, which is favored for its light weight, thin thickness, flexible bending and folding and other excellent characteristics, but the domestic quality testing of FPC also mainly rely on manual visual inspection, high cost and low efficiency. With the rapid development of the electronic industry, the circuit board design tends to be more and more high-precision and high-density, the traditional manual detection method can no longer meet the production demand, FPC defect automatic detection has become an inevitable trend of industrial development.
