电路板可称为印刷线路板或印刷电路板，英文名称为（Printed Circuit Board）PCB、（Flexible Printed Circuit board）FPC线路板（FPC线路板又称柔性线路板柔性电路板是以聚酰亚胺或聚酯薄膜为基材制成的一种具有度可靠性，可挠性印刷电路板。具有配线密度、重量轻、厚度薄、弯折性好的特点。）和软硬结合板（reechas，Soft and hard combination plate）-FPC与PCB的诞生与发展，催生了软硬结合板这一新产品。因此，软硬结合板，就是柔性线路板与硬性线路板，经过压合等工序，按相关工艺要求组合在一起，形成的具有FPC特性与PCB特性的线路板。
Circuit Board can be called a Printed Circuit Board or Printed Circuit Board, English name is (Printed Circuit Board) PCB, (Flexible Printed Circuit Board) FPC Circuit Board (FPC Circuit Board, also known as Flexible PCB Flexible Circuit Board based on polyimide or polyester film base material made of a kind of with high reliability, excellent Flexible Printed Circuit Board. With the high density of wiring, light weight, thin thickness, good bending property characteristics.) Combined with hard and Soft board (reechas, Soft and hard combination plate) - with birth and development of PCB, FPC plate led to the Soft hard couple, the new product. Therefore, the combination of hard and soft board, it is the flexible circuit board with rigid circuit board, after pressing process, according to the requirements of relevant technology together, forming characteristics of FPC characteristics and PCB circuit boards.
