Bare Board Group Releases "Printed Circuit Boards for Dummies."

Global PCB supplier unveils simplified guide to the circuit board and its industry.

Largo, FL - May 11, 2011 - Printed circuit board supplier, Bare Board Group, announced today the official release of their new publication, "Printed Circuit Board Basics for Dummies, Bare Board Group Edition." Produced in conjunction with the widely recognized "For dummies" company, Wiley Publishing, BBG has created a simplified, layman's guide to the extremely technical world of printed electronics. The volume gives an overview of circuit boards, how they're designed and manufactured, and defines many common industry terms. It also focuses on best business practices and establishes steps to creating successful PCB partnerships.

This is the first edition of the For Dummies book but the fifth in a line of books focusing on the basics of printed circuit board fabrication. The founding members of Bare Board Group (Greg Papandrew, Tom Coghlan, Bonnie DelGrosso, and Katherine Hsu) worked together to update the previous volume for today's industry with the added benefit of the "For Dummies" simplified format.

Greg Papandrew, President of BBG states, "I was given the original book when I first entered this industry. My hope is that the uncomplicated "just the facts" format of Printed Circuit Boards for Dummies will benefit someone new to the industry in the way that it helped me 20 years ago."

This volume is recommended for individuals that are new to circuit boards, students, buyers, inspectors, those who want to invest in the PCB industry, or writers who want to report on it. It's for anyone seeking a simplified insight into an otherwise complex industry.
