about the rigid flex PCB

- Sep 22, 2018-

The birth and development of FPC and PCB gave birth to the new product of soft and hard board.Therefore, soft and hard board is a circuit board with FPC characteristics and PCB characteristics formed by combining flexible circuit board and hard circuit board through pressing and combining processes according to relevant process requirements.

Production process:

Because soft and hard board is the combination of FPC and PCB, the production of soft and hard board should have both FPC production equipment and PCB production equipment.First of all, by the electronic engineers according to demand to draw the flexible combination plate line and shape, and then distributed to the plate factory can produce soft hard couple, after the CAM engineer to deal with relevant documents, planning, and then arrange the FPC production line for production line production of PCB, FPC, PCB both soft and hard board, in accordance with the requirements for electronic engineers plan, FPC and seamless bonding PCB after pressing machine, go through a series of details link, the final process combined with hard and soft board.Very important one link, should soft hard combination board difficulty is big, detail problem is much, before sending goods, want to undertake general check, because its value is relatively high, lest let both sides of supply and demand cause relevant benefit loss.

Advantages and disadvantages:

Advantages: the soft and hard board has both the characteristics of FPC and PCB. Therefore, it can be used in some products with special requirements, including both a certain flexible area and a certain rigid area, which is of great help to save product internal space, reduce finished product volume and improve product performance.

Disadvantages: there are many production processes of soft and hard board, the production is difficult, the yield is low, there are many materials and manpower, therefore, the price is more expensive and the production cycle is longer.
