PCB prototypes play a crucial role in both consumer and industrial electronics industries. It serves as a pre-production proof of concept to confirm that the circuit design will work as intended once the components are soldered on a real board. Although the prototype PCB usually has fewer advanced features and design elements compared to the final production board, it must be an accurate, high-quality, and fully functional test version of the final circuit. Therefore, it’s essential that the prototype PCB assembly reflects the basic design, function, and component load-out of the finished production board as closely as possible.
