What exactly is a printed circuit board prototype, and why might you need one?
Printed circuit boards (PCBs) mechanically and electronically support a variety of electronic devices and appliances. In fact, prototype printed circuit boards are much more common than you probably realize; you likely have several items in your house right now that use PCBs! There are several components of PCBs which allow prototype circuit boards to be developed and manufactured depending on what a device needs.
Simple PCBs are typically one-sided, using one copper layer which is laminated onto a non-conductive board, or double-sided, using two copper layers. Multi-layer PCBs make use of several copper boards and allow f
