In the last decades, electronic control units have become essential parts of many modern industrial and commercial products. Since 2000, electronics industry is the biggest industrial sector in the world ahead of the automobile industry. Electronics is integrated into almost every product we use in our daily life — from the alarm clock we use to wake up every morning to the remote control for watching TV in the evening. Unfortunately, “people on the streets”, although they use over more than 100 of them a day, are still not aware of the product called printed circuit board (PCB).
