The rigid, flex and rigid-flex PCBs are all types of printed circuit boards. The rigid PCB is the traditional board and the base from which the other two variations came about, in response to industry and market needs. Flex PCBs introduced versatility to PCB fabrication and rigid-flex combines both for increased performance. Learn more about these board types, their benefits, disadvantages, and applications in this article.
