PCB vs PCBA: What's the Difference

In an electrical system, an electronic circuit plays an integral role. For circuit manufacturing and designing, printed circuit board (PCB) and printed circuit board assembly (PCBA) are widely used.

Most of the time, we use both boards for the same purpose. But, both PCB and PCBA are literally two different things and come with different specifications.

In this article, we are going to study the difference between PCB and PCBA. Also, I will explain the definition, working principle, types, specifications, advantages, and applications.

Let’s dive in.

What is a PCB and how does it work?


Hope you understand the basic difference between PCB and PCBA. Both are essential for manufacturing a complete circuit board. Without the PCB, you cannot manufacture or assemble the PCBA. We have also seen the applications of PCB and PCBA in domestic appliances, commercial and industrial equipment, etc.

If you have any further queries regarding PCB or PCBA, let’s discuss them in the comment section below.
