Circuit boards are an important component in almost everything electronic. A circuit board ensures that a device is working properly, and conducting all of the functions it was made to do. If this component is so necessary, then it is important to make sure it is high quality and durable. These days, when devices are mass produced, it is common of companies to reduce the quality of all components in order to save more money. This is a controversial business tactic that will tarnish the name and reputation of any brand. This is why making good products and never compromising quality is imperative. When assembling a new technological creation, even prototype circuit boards are important.
Much of the technology we rely upon today can be traced back printed circuit boards. Printed circuit boards, otherwise known as PCBs, are the mechanical support systems that electrically connect components using conductive tracks, pads, and other features. These are etched onto copper laminate attached to substrate, ultimately forming the printed circuit board. Yet a printed circuit board cannot be created without first acting as a prototype. Prototype printed circuit boards don’t need to be made by a machine. Prototype PCB manufacturing can be done by hand. Below, we’ll look into a few techniques and materials used duri Continue reading
