What is the difference between Flexible PCB and Rigid PCB ?

 What is the flexible circuits ?,
What is The rigid circuit boards?
What is the difference between the two?
 
 
 
flexible PCB
Also known as flexible circuit boards,
 
Is rolled with copper or
 
Electrolytic copper as the material,
 
Flexibility is very good, Bending resistance.
 
Normally we talk about PCB 
Called rigid board,
The FPC called the Flexible PCB.
 
Small and medium-sized flexible circuits/s design follows
Rigid circuit board design,
But not completely The same with rigid circuit board.
 
Specific differences can be summarized as the following aspects:
 
1, softness
 
A standard for flexible circuit boards
 
Is to require good flexibility,
 
Flexible printed circuit board
 
Three-dimensional space is very important,
 
 
 
Because of bending and flexible applications
 
Can save space and reduce the board layer,
 
Mostly single-sided.
 
Hard board material is
 
Requirements more excellent,
 
With compression,
 
 
Wear-resistant high temperature and other characteristics,
 
So the limitations of the space,
 
Common Multilayer PCB.
 
 
 
2, the carrying capacity of the line
 
Compared with the rigid circuit board,
 
Flexible PCB is Poor
 
 
 
Anything from a straight line to a corner
 
Or different line width changes,
 
Should be smooth transition,
 
We can see a lot
 
Flex PCB  with snake-like alignment.
 
 
 
The same line width from the hard board
 
Of the current carrying capacity
 
Much stronger than the soft board,
 
 
 
So we common
 
Flexible PCB applications
 
In the place of smaller current,
 
Such as mobile phone cable.
 
 
 
3, the pad design
 
In the periphery of the pad,
 
There is one from the flexible material
 
Rigid material changes.
 
 
 
Board This area is the soft board
 
More likely to damage the conductor.
 
Therefore, the pads should be avoided
 
In the region prone to bending.
 
Rigid board does not need to emphasize this problem.
 
 
 
4, the shape of the plate
 
Regardless of the soft board hard board
 
Shape will be a variety of,
 
Flexible PCB in shape
 
On the general preferred rectangle,
 
 
 
So you can better save the substrate,
 
Leave at the edge of the board
 
Enough free margins,
 
 
 
In the shape,
 
General solution made of circular
 
Than the sharp inner angle is better,
 
The inner solution of the light shape is easy
 
Causing the plate to tear.
 
 
 
Rigid board is a fixed mode,
 
Depending on the shape of the product.
 
 
 
5, the thickness of the board
 
FPC  is thinner than Rigid board,
 
Conventional hard board thinnest to do
 
To 0.2mm has been very good,
 
 
 
While the flexible pcb
 
Can be thinner than paper,
 
So in many areas or
There is a good space for development.
 
 
 
From the above can see the Flex PCB 
 
And Rigid boards are different,
 
Each have their own fields.
 
 
 
Circuit board proofing industry will be
 
Indispensable component.
