Episode 12 - What Are PCBs?

This week we jump in the way back machine and go all the way to Episode 1 to talk a bit more about PCBs in the first of what we’re going to be calling “glossary” episodes. What are PCBs you ask? What do they do? Aren’t they some kind of chemical? You’re just going to have to listen to find out.

This episode was inspired by a message from a listener! If there are concepts we mention that you would like to hear more about, we would love to hear from you.

Most of the stuff in the episode is self explanatory, but if you want to see wave soldering in action check out this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CH2tE9Wct4U

Also because we mentioned vacuum tubes in the episode and it’s awesome, watch the section on vacuum tubes from the 1943 Westinghouse short film “Electronics at Work” here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQRFmWiAVXU
