Electronic components like integrated circuits are incredibly useful - but not when they're in isolation. The unsung hero of the electronics system world is the circuit board, which connects everything together. In this session, we will discover the origin of printed circuit board technology; single-sided, double-sided, and multi-layer circuit boards; and flexible circuit technologies. We will also consider electronic systems in general, leading to concepts like "The Internet of Things."
