Scope noteHere are entered works on conductive paths printed onto a substrate on which individual components are mounted. Works on electronic components manufactured by printing electronically functional inks, which are usually polymers, on a substrate are entered under Printed electronics. Works on devices created by microlithographic etching and film deposition on silicon compounds are entered under Integrated circuits.
Subject example tracingNote under Integrated circuits; Printed electronics
Found inVan Nostrand's scientific encyclopedia, 1958: p. 1306 (printed circuit; any circuit formed by depositing a conducting material on the surface of an insuating sheet; this may be achieved by the use of electrically conducting ink, electroplating, etc.)
Science & technology encyclopedia, the University of Chicago Press, 1999 p. 420 (printed circuit; network of electric conductors chemically etched from a layer of copper foil coating a board of insulating material such as plastic, glass or ceramic. This interconnects components such as capacitors, resistors, and integrated circuits (IC). The printed circuit board (PCB) represents one stage in the miniaturization of electronic circuits. It serves to reduce the maze of connecting wires and to compact more circuitry, such as a complete calculating complex, onto a single board or module)
