Electronics hobbyists who have never ventured into the realms of making their own circuit boards, are missing out on half the fun. Here, we present a quick step-by-step guide to the UV light transfer and Ferric Chloride etching method for making your own printed circuit boards.
Home DIY electronics projects can be a lot of fun for discovery and learning. They can also be extremely useful for those extra buttons and remote devices in your home.
What is even better, is being able sit the project components on a printed circuit board (PCB) that you also made yourself.
It is extremely satisfying seeing a finished DIY electronics project which looks so professional it could have just as easily come from the nearest electronics store. Learning the skill of etching your own PCBs will help you obtain that same satisfaction in your home electronics projects too.
