When the metronome dropped to the floor this time, it broke into three pieces. The front, the back, and the battery. With a little bit of coaxing and a pretty heavy rubber band you were able to get it working again. As you examined the inside though you noticed the circuit board inside. Once again remembering that nearly everything that turns on has some kind of circuit board on the inside, you began thinking about the prototype printed circuit boards that you had in the basement. Maybe it is time to get back to work on the projects that you started last summer.
With the prototype printed circuit boards you were hoping to attach a light to the metronome that your daughter used on a daily basis for her piano practice.
Prototype circuit boards are available in a variety of sizes for a variety of projects. Using the preprinted grids mechanics and electricians, and even amateurs, can follow the diagrams for the wiring that they need. Radio transistors, small light bulbs, and buzzers can be attached to other machines through the use of circuit board prototyping.
A Preprinted Circuit Board Is Located Inside Most Things that We Use on a Daily Basis
Basically, circuit boards are available in three different types:
The most simple, of course, is the single-sided circuit board. More complex products require either a double-sided or multi-layered circuit board. Two general assembly methods are used for each of these three types. The first method is known as Surface Mount Assembly and the other method is known as Through Hole Construction.
Prototype circuit boards are used in the initial development stage for most products. Once the boards have been tested and approved, they are then mass produced. With circuit boards being used in everything from the remotes we unlock and start our cars with to the cell phones that we depend on 24/7, it should come as no surprise that the sales of circuit boards is on the rise. In fact, the world market for printed circuit boards reached $60 billion in the year 2012. This was a 1.7% real growth over the year 2011, according to the 2012 IPC World PCB Production Report.
