Circuit boards are vital for keeping many of the gadgets that we use in our everyday lives running. From our computers to cell phones to microwaves and even digital clocks, printed circuit boards (commonly abbreviated as PCB’s) are everywhere. Of course, different items require different kinds of printed circuit boards that might have different layouts, materials, and assemblies. There are also advantages to the various types of printed circuit boards in circulation, depending on their application. The methodology for creating PCB’s began early in the 20th century, but was refined during WWII. As technology has continued to be refined, so too have printed circuit boards; multilayer circuit boards, for example, became more commonly used in the 1990s. We’ll discuss the major types of circuit boards, common construction processes, and advantages to the different types of printed circuit boards.
