What’s the appropriate name for a Printed Circuit Board, PCB, PCA, or PCBA?

While PCB, PCA and PCBA are used interchangeably in the industry, here’s what they really mean:

●  PCB – printed circuit board. It’s the “naked” board without the electronic components.

●  PCA – printed circuit assembly. A populated board with all the components.

●  PCBA – Printed Circuit Board Assembly. It’s the same thing as a PCA — a board with all the components included. 

PCB is the most commonly used acronym when referring to the circuit board populated with all the components (which is the PCA or PCBA).
