RCY ELECTRONIC : What is the relationship between PCB and integrated circuit?

In electronics manufacturing industry,we often see printed circuit boards (PCBs) and integrated circuits (ICs).

Therefore,many people are unclear about these two concepts. In fact, they are not so complicate

Today we will sort out the difference between PCBs and integrated circuits

Currently, printed circuit boards mainly consists of circuit, pattern, Dielectric, holes( through hole / via), Solder resistant / Solder Mask,

Legend / Marking / Silk screen, Surface Finish (Surface Finish) and others

However, an integrated circuit is a miniature electronic component or part, it is a Microelectronic structure which uses certain technical processing to  interconnect components

such as transistors, resistors, capacitors, and inductors and layout ,which are required in a circuit

In addition, an integrated circuit can b e produced on a small piece or pieces of semiconductor chip or dielectric substrate

and then packaged in shell. It becomes a micro-structure with the required circuit function. And also all the components a r e structurally integrated

making electronic components a big step toward to miniaturization, low power consumption, intelligence and high reliability

What’s more, an integrated circuit  in the circuit  means the letter “IC”

Relationship between PCB and integrated circuit

An integrated circuit generally refers to the integration of a chip,such as a north bridge chip on a motherboard ,the CPU, it is all an integrated circuit

However, PCB IS the circuit boards we often see , we can understand he relationship between the two this way :

the integrated circuits (ICs) is soldered on the printed circuit boards (PCBs), and the PCB is the carrier of the integrated circuits (ICs).

In simply words, an integrated circuit integrates a general-purpose circuit onto a single chip. It is a whole. Once damaged inside, the chip i s damaged too.

However,  the PCB can solder components
