General Purpose PCB
General Purpose PCB or Zero PCB or Dotted PCB also known as Perfboard are perfect for quick prototyping and can be used by students for school and college projects. These PCB's are also used by Hobbyist and in Industries for R&D and Testing of small circuits.
Printed circuit Board commonly abbreviated as PCB is the base(literally) of electronics. The PCB provides support as well as electrically connects various Electronic Components in the circuit.
For testing or for mounting your components you can either design and manufacture a custom PCB or else you can mount it on a zero PCB and accordingly make the connections. General Purpose PCB are perfect if you have not finalized the design or you are making the circuit just once like for a school or college project.
Advantages of using General Purpose PCB
- Low cost.
- Perfect for Prototyping and testing small circuits.
- Perfect for all who are starting with Electronics.
- Short Design Time
- You can change the circuit at any time
