By CEN PCBA
PCBA or known as PCBA board, actually is not a board, but it is an assembly service. While Printed circuit board (PCB) and printed circuit board assembly (PCBA)are both important terms in the electronics industry.
Some people use them interchangeably, but they are two distinct things. PCBA boards are widely found in any electronic devices.
What is PCB?
PCB, or pcb manufacturing, or customized pcb, it is the blank circuit board. It can be single sided( single layer), or double sided(multi layers), and its solder mask color, generally speaking, Green, black, yellow, red, white, blue, etc are the most common mask colors we can find in any electronic device. Here are a few of the most popular materials used in the fabrication of printed circuit boards: FR4, Polyimide, Teflon, Flexible laminates, etc. CEN can support from prototype pcb to mass production.
What is pcba?
pcba stands for printed circuit board assembly,also known as bare board pcb assembly or pcba manufacturing involves soldering(electrically connect ) electronic components to the bare pcb board with surface mount technology and through hole technology(PTH, or NPTH as we can say).
Complete soldering or assembling of the electronic components on the printed circuit board is referred to as the PCBA or Printed Circuit Board Assembly. The board PCB would have any function until all electronic components are electrically connected. Then the complete PCBA used on different electronic devices.
After reading above information, you might have a basically concept for pcb and pcba. Founded in 2013, CEN PCBA is a shenzhen-based supplier of full-service electronic manufacturing services (EMS) . We provide a complete manufacturing solution, including material purchasing, printed circuit board assembly (PCBA) , finished product assembly, system level testing and so on.
