What is a Printed Circuit Board: A printed circuit board (PCB) is a laminated sandwich structure of conductive and insulating layers. PCBs have two complementary functions. The first is to affix electronic components in designated locations on the outer layers by means of soldering. The second is to provide reliable electrical connections between the component’s terminals in a controlled manner often referred to as PCB design.

Why You Should Make Yours: If you are an electronics enthusiast I’m sure at a certain point of your life, or during many of them, you hated wires. They are messy, easy to break, hard to debug and take too much time to cut, strip, solder, etc.

A PCB can completely eliminate the use of wires in your circuit. Instead of doing it by hand, you’ll design your circuit in software and order online a super high-quality board. This will save you time, make your product more reliable, scaleable, and make it look super professional!

Why Kicad: Kicad is a cad software where you’ll design your PCBs. Kicad is a complete tool to design and send your PCBs to manufacturing. Besides, it is completely free and open-source!
