What is PCB ( Printed Circuit Board ) ?

What is PCB?

PCB stands for Printed Circuit Board. It is used to support and connect electronic components via conductive pathways. It tracks and signal traces etched from copper sheets laminated onto a non conductive substrate.

What is PCB Assembly?

A PCB board ( printed circuit board ) populated with electronic components is called a printed circuit assembly ( PCA ), printed circuit board assembly or simply just PCB Assembly ( PCBA )

PCBs must initially be designed and laid out, but become cheaper, faster to make, and potentially more reliable for mass production since prodction and soldering of PCBs can be automated. The standard used in PCB design, asemly and quality control are published by the IPC organization ( http://www.ipc.org ).
