Applications and Types of PCBs for Computer and Consumer Electronics Industry

While there are many areas where printed circuit boards are in use today, it all started with computers and related electronic devices. Whether you're talking about consumer electronics PCBs or business machine PCBs, our society runs on printed circuit boards.


Printed circuit boards for electronics are certainly nothing new, but the applications for electronics printed circuit boards and PCBs for computers, as well as the materials used to make them, have evolved dramatically over the years.

Applications and Types of PCBs for Computer and Consumer Electronics Industry

You won't find electronics PCBs today only in computers - although laptops, smartphones, desktops and tablets certainly can't function without quality printed circuit boards, and printed circuit boards for computers make up a large part of the industry. Instead, you'll find machines containing printed circuit boards almost everywhere you look.


Your television, wireless router, video game system, coffee maker and monitor all operate using a printed circuit board. In the office, your printer, wireless mouse, network hardware, vending machine, scanner, fax, packaging equipment and more all use printed circuit boards, too — in fact, you probably have more printed circuit boards in your office building than people. Today's businesses and homes simply cannot function without reliable printed circuit boards.


Modern electronics and computer applications often require PCBs with higher thermal conductivity so they can dissipate the high heat that comes from fast computer processors or high-intensity LEDs. The type of printed circuit board you will need for your application will vary widely since the size, shape and function of consumer electronics, as each business machine and computer is different from the next. For instance, the type of PCB you will need to power a smartwatch is very different from that you'll find in a television.
