Printed circuit boards Standard and Custom Printed Circuit Boards are essential components in electronic devices, as they provide a physical platform for the placement of electronic components and interconnections. There are two main types of PCBs: standard and custom. In this article, we will discuss the differences between these two types of PCBs, and their respective advantages and disadvantages.
Standard PCBs, also known as off-the-shelf PCBs, are pre-designed and mass-produced in large quantities. They are available in a range of sizes and configurations, and can be easily purchased from PCB manufacturers or distributors. Standard PCBs are often used in applications where cost, time-to-market, and volume production are the main considerations.
