Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Fabrication is a crucial process in the electronics industry that involves the manufacturing of PCBs, which serve as the fundamental platform for electronic circuits in various devices and systems. The fabrication process transforms raw materials into precisely engineered PCBs that provide electrical connectivity and mechanical support for electronic components.
The PCB fabrication process begins with designing the PCB layout using specialized computer-aided design (CAD) software. Designers determine the arrangement of copper traces, pads, and vias that form the electrical connections and pathways for the components. They also specify the number of layers and overall dimensions of the PCB based on the complexity of the circuit and space constraints.
The next step is to produce the PCB's physical board using a substrate material, typically fiberglass-reinforced epoxy resin known as FR4. The substrate is coated with a thin layer of copper on both sides, forming the conductive layers that make up the PCB.
To create the desired circuit pattern, a layer of photosensitive material called the resist is applied to the copper-coated substrate. The PCB layout data is then used to expose the resist to ultraviolet light, hardening the exposed areas.
After the exposure, the unexposed resist is removed, leaving behind the desired copper traces and pads. The exposed copper is then chemically etched away, precisely defining the circuit pattern on the PCB.
For multilayer PCBs, the process is repeated to create multiple conductive layers. The individual layers are then laminated together under high pressure and temperature to form a single, compact unit.
Next, holes for through-hole components and vias are drilled into the PCB. These holes are plated with a conductive material to establish electrical connections between the different layers of the PCB.
After drilling and plating, the PCB is coated with a protective solder mask. This solder mask covers the entire PCB surface except for the exposed copper pads, preventing solder from flowing where it is not required during the assembly process.
Finally, the PCB undergoes surface finish treatment, such as electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG), hot air solder leveling (HASL), or immersion tin, to enhance its solderability and protect the copper from oxidation.
PCB fabrication is a critical step in the electronics manufacturing process, ensuring the creation of reliable and high-quality PCBs that form the foundation for electronic devices and systems across various industries. With continuous advancements in fabrication techniques and materials, PCBs continue to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of electronics and driving innovation in a wide range of applications.

Printed Circuit Board Fabrication Introduction:
The creator of PCB is the Austrian Paul Eisler, who first used printed circuit boards in radios in 1936. In 1943, Americans mostly used this technology in military radios, and in 1948, the United States officially recognized this invention for commercial use. Printed circuit boards have only been widely used since the mid-1950s. Printed circuit boards are found in almost every electronic device. If there are electronic parts in a device, they are all mounted on PCBs of various sizes. The main function of the PCB is to make various electronic components form the connection of the predetermined circuit, which plays the role of relay transmission. It is the key electronic interconnection of electronic products and is known as the "mother of electronic products".
