An introduction to the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Fabrication Process
- Release on:2017-04-27
In 1936, the 1st printed circuit board (PCB) was made by Paul Eisle. Nonetheless it wasn't before 1950s once the U.S. Defense industry began integrating PCBs in their bomb detonator systems that printed circuit boards found wide application. PCBs are actually used in virtually all manufactured products such as, automobiles, cellular telephones, computers, and others.
A Summary of the PCB Fabrication Processes
PCBs are initially fabricated by using 2 types of software. Computer Aided Design (CAD) software programs are accustomed to design the electronic schematic in the circuit to become produced. Following the schematic is designed, Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) software program is employed by engineers to create the PCB prototype.
