What is PCB Manufacturing Process?
The full name of PCB is printed circuit board, as it is evidently manufactured through a printing process. The PCB manufacturing process involves transferring the PCB graphic onto a copper-clad board according to the designed circuit pattern. Then metalize the through holes and print solder mask ink to protect the copper foil and traces. Finally, the exposed pads are surface treated to form the circuit board that is required. The raw material of the circuit board is copper-clad laminate, which is an insulating board with a thin layer of copper foil on the surface. A printed circuit board serves as the platform for attaching and installing electronic components, while also providing a means of communication between these components to create an electrical conduction pathway.
