Build your own robot: PCBs and Breadboards

So far in the first tow article of “Build your own robot” we garnered some basic knowledge about robotics and the sequential parts of robot making and the brainstorming and the troubleshooting part and the basic plan of action. In the following write ups we will learn more on basic and the cognitive understanding of electronic parts and how circuits work. The electronic parts concerned with or using devices that operates on principles governing the behavior of electrons. The circuit is an electrical device that provides a path for electrical current to flow in simpler term the boundary line encompassing an area or object.

Printed circuit boards. With the help of connecting wire and component terminals the closed circuit is formed. With the process of etching by using caustic solution of Ferric Chloride (FeCl3) the conductors are implemented by removing the copper from board. The main obstacle with this is the soldering of iron.

The advantages of using PCBs:
PCB has longer self lives as you solder the components within it. Obviously it will survive the jerks and shocks. The circuit first built upon the breadboards, then tested, diagnosed and then the final permanent design done with soldered on a PCB for  actual use or practice.
