3 Electronic circuits are made up of electronic parts connected together. There are many ways to connect electronic parts together, but perhaps the easiest way is with a Printed Circuit Board PCB or just "THE Board" The PCB makes it easy because it has pads for each part. For a circuit to work correctly, we need to connect together everything that should connect together, and not connect anything that should not be connected together. If you look carefully at the PCB, you will see lines connecting pads together with other pads these lines are called traces. All of the parts have wires sticking out of them: Most pads have a hole in the middle this is where the lead pokes through and makes a connection to the circuit! (pronounced leedz ) All of these wires, regardless of what they look like, are called leads since they lead to the parts. If you put all of the leads from the parts into the correct pads for the parts and if you put all of the parts in the correct orientation and if you make all good solder connections some parts can go in the wrong way! Let s make our first solder connection! then the circuit will just work! This is because the board connects everything that should be connected, and nothing that should not be connected. 3
