Parts of a Circuit Board
Circuit boards can have any number of parts to meet specific functions. Some common circuit board parts, though, are transistors, potentiometers, inductors, relays, diodes, batteries, and fuses. Each of these parts plays a role in making the circuit board function. Circuit boards don’t have to be complex, and even amateurs can create circuit boards themselves.
