PCB Designing

Printed Circuit Board are essential part of a electronic connections to generate a mechanical support as well. Conductive tracks, pads and other features etched from copper sheets laminated onto a non-conductive substrate to connect capacitors, resistors or active devices which are generally soldered on the Printed Circuit Board. We can’t rely upon bread board for substantially increased number of components and for smaller packaging sizes of Integrated circuits  that’s makes PCB more essential. It is more of an art then just science with lots of scope for designer.
