Differences between integrated circuits and printed circuit boards
One is embedded, one is the surface, you can go to the library to borrow related books
The integrated circuit (IC) is a circuit that integrates it into a separate device. Its manufacturing process is basically a semiconductor process. Printed circuit boards are not integrated together, by a number of components and devices (which can also have integrated circuits) combination. Its assembly process, does not involve the semiconductor process.
The printed circuit board (PCB) is used to provide electronic components of the electrical connection of the physical hardware, from the actual manufacturing point of view. There is nothing comparable between the two.
An integrated circuit (IC) refers to a device in which a large number of components of a circuit are assembled on a single wafer, which is, in principle, more inclined to the circuit structure.
