PCB Electronics-High Tech Growth Introducing


PCB is used for permanent soldered circuits like small scale and large scale electronic accessories and gadgets production in different industries. The marketable circuits or gadgets ae always made with PCBs. PCB electronics component is an electrical or electronic device such as inductor, resistor, capacitor, and IC etc., that processes the input electrical signal. Each component has a unique symbol that is maintained throughout from schematic drawing to PCB layout. The symbols made for electrical drawing helps to understand and run the board for the team members. The component symbols made for PCB layout and finally printed over the PCB board are helpful during PCB assembly. The symbols made for PCB layout are called component footprints that define to-the-scale shape and soldering point of the component. The component symbols and component footprint may be of same or different shape.



The PCBs have conductive thin copper tracks on one side in single layer PCBs, or on both sides in double layer boards, and on multiple layers embedded within the outermost two layers of the board. The tracks which are generally covered with masked coating propagate signals from one end to the other. Generally, for a single layer, double layer and multilayer PCB, the through hole components are mounted on one side and soldered on the other side of the PCB. The SMT components are mounted and soldered on the same side of PCB. The component density over the multilayer PCBs is much higher as compared to the single and double layer PCBs.


Generally, the PCB electronics components are categorized but not only limited to, following types.

Resistor: general purpose fixed , single or multiturn variable, slider, temperature dependent etc.

Switches: Push to ON, Push to off, rotary, toggle, limit etc.

Inductor: power supply inductors, high frequency and RF inductors, filter inductors etc.

Capacitor: polar and non-polar capacitors, high frequency, power supply etc.


Diode: General purpose power supply rectifier type, Zener, schottky, transient voltage suppressor etc

Transistor: NPN and PNP BJT, N-channel and P-channel FETs, UJTs etc

ICs: Analog ICs like operational amplifiers and sensors, digital ICs like gates, microprocessors, comparators, memories, FPGAs and DSPs etc. By PCB perspective each has its unique symbol and pin names for drawing clarity.
