What does FPCA mean, what is the difference between FPCA and PCBA?

FPC is a flexible printed circuit board (FPC) made of polyimide or polyester film, which is a highly reliable and excellent flexible printed circuit board. It has the characteristics of high wiring density, light weight, thin thickness and good bending property.


FPCA is an abbreviation for flexible printed circuit assembly and refers to the soldering or assembly of FPC components.

PCB (printed circuit board), the Chinese name of a printed circuit board, also known as a printed circuit board, is an important electronic component, support of electronic components, and a carrier for electrical connection of electronic components. Because it is made by electronic printing, it is called a "printing" circuit board.

PCBA is the abbreviation of the English version of Printed Circuit Board + Assembly, which means that the PCB blank board passes through the upper part of the SMT and then passes through the DIP plug-in process called PCBA. This is a common way of writing in China. The standard method of writing in Europe and the United States is PCB. 'A, add '', which is called the official idiom.

The difference between PCBA and FPCA is mainly the difference between the plates:

The FPCA is assembled using a flexible circuit board. The board has flexible properties and uses relatively high end products such as mobile phones. The assembly density is high, the processing is difficult, and the production cost is high.

PCBA is assembled by using a rigid circuit board. This is the board of directors we often say. It has a wide range of applications, mature board assembly technology, less process difficulty and lower manufacturing costs than FPC.
