The PCB is the lifeblood of many modern electronics and devices, such as computers or smartphones. Like any other electronic component, there are certain factors that contribute to when these boards fail prematurely: how well they were manufactured and what type of materials they're made from.

The most common PCB issues include solder mask between plates. This can lead to a high risk of shorts and opens, even if they are not visible on the surface or in any test points due to their small size. The plastic layer which protects copper from oxidation is often applied too thickly- this leaves gaps that open up during soldering and destroy conductivity. The PCB trace repair kits allow you to easily fix any circuit traces that are damaged. This infographic shares the most common PBC issues.
