Tracing the Birth of the Printed Circuit Board Assembly

Ever wondered how phones, handheld gaming devices, radios, tablets, and other forms of technology evolved into these that we use nowadays? These went through a series of changes and innovations before it reached the market to the modern-time consumers. The gut of these gadgets is called printed circuit board assembly. Now is the time to learn about the history of PCB assembly. The printed circuit board assembly was developed around 1980s. Initially, in the 1850s, systems of electrical connections were made of metallic rods and strips conjoining electrical components mounted on a base made of wood. These were very large apparatus back then. Afterwards, these huge metallic components were changed into wires attached to terminal of screws. Metal chassis replaced the base made of wood. To improve operation using circuit…
