Ian,
        in my neck of the woods here are the most common terms that I run
across.

PCB (Printed Circuit Board) - raw bare board
PCBA (Printed Circuit Board Assembly) - assembled PCB with components.

        Probably due to an outdated local anomaly, we would never see PWA in
our neck of the woods. Formerly it was the acronym for an airline, Pacific
Western Airlines.

Sincerely,
Brad Velander.

Subject: [PEDA] What does "printed circuit board" mean to you?


G'Day all,

<snip>

How do others interpret the following terms?
PCB (printed circuit board)
PWA (printed wiring assembly)

What term(s) do you use for the assembled PCB?

Hooroo,
Ian Wilson
