Advantages of Using Printed Circuit Boards

Designing and putting together a circuit with several components can be a bit challenging. Circuitry design often comes down to efficiency and precision. In most cases, the difficulty stems from the type of circuit board you choose to use. You could go for breadboards, parallel stripboards, or printed circuit boards. Among the three, the printed circuit board is the most popular with mass-produced electronics; however, that does not mean that it can’t be used for small projects and prototypes. Here are some of the advantages of using a printed circuit board over other alternatives. 

Compact and Neat

Soldering on a printed PCB results in a compact circuit, which saves on space, wiring, and solder. The PCB allows components to be soldered close together without the risk of interference. Some of these PCBs can be printed on both sides allowing for surface mount components as well as through-hole mounts. All …
