As the circuit board industry grows, overall manufacturers’ military and aerospace sales are also growing, according to IPC analysts. While budgets for the U.S. military and aerospace programs are shrinking, PCBS tend to do more business among manufacturers than in other vertical markets. Printed circuit boards for these applications must meet stringent quality and performance standards, which is why the Advanced Circuits team is proud to have a variety of certifications in these areas. Circuit boards are needed for everything from communications equipment to navigation systems to robotic reconnaissance.

The role of printed circuit boards in military technology

As equipment weapons continue to become more complex, the military and other government organizations must have the materials they need to keep up with technological developments. Printed circuit boards work by allowing engineers to connect all the components they need and know that everything works as designed. This is why PCB manufacturers must continue to improve the technology to produce the highest quality boards.
