Prototype circuit boards

Printed Circuit Boards (PCB) has exceeded a $60 billion market. Growing at a rate of 1.7% real growth or more since 2011, printed circuit boards are now used in all but the most rudimentary electronics products.

Here’s what you need to know about the design and manufacturing process of printed circuit boards before manufacturing your first printed circuit board prototype.

The designing of a printed circuit board prototype

Your printed circuit board prototype will be designed for its specific use. It’s size will depend on the size of the space you plan to place it in. When designing printed circuit board prototypes, designers will use computerized design software which can help them lay out how the circuits will fit on the PCB. The designer will also use this software to determi
