What’s the Difference Between a PCB and PCBA?

A PCB is a printed circuit board that supports electronic parts and connects them through conductive tracks, pads, and other features. These features are etched onto copper sheets that are laminated onto a non-conductive, planar substrate (sometimes called a wafer)....

The Right Way to Indicate Diode Polarity

A diode is one of the most widely-used semiconductors. Diodes keep currents flowing properly. You can think of diodes as one-way streets. They send current in one direction, known as the “forward direction.” If the current tries to come back in the reverse direction,...
