What are Printed Circuit Boards?

Printed Circuit Boards, PCB's for short, are all about connection and they are everywhere. The technical definition - A PCB allows signals and power to be routed between physical devices. In layman's term, a PCB is what makes your electronics work! They are in your laptops, desktops, cell phones, tablets, TVs, radios, and digital cameras; All of the things that have become a part of our everyday lives.

Gone are the days of point to point wiring. PCB's have taken over the world of electronics. If you're not using high quality PCB's, you are missing out big time!

PCB's fall into different categories. These categories contain some familiar and not so familiar names:

Let's begin with the Motherboard , which is the main board in a computer with connectors that will allow other circuit boards to attach.

The Expansion Board is a card in a computer on which additional chips can be mounted to expand the computer's capabilities board. These boards house controller boards, LAN cards, and video adapters.

The Daughtercard is pretty straightforward. It is any board that attaches directly to another board.

A special type of expansion board is a Controller Board. It is a controller for a peripheral device used when you attach new devices to a computer.

The Network Interface Card is another expansion board that enables a computer to connect to another computer network.

Lastly, you have the Video Adapter. This expansion board contains a controller for a graphics monitor.
