Have you ever wondered why the solder mask on your printed circuit boards is green? There have been numerous myths and explanations put forward over the years to explain why PCBs are green. The most believable to AdvancedPCB is that original masks for PCB were yellow and brown in color and not very appealing so designers played around with pigments until they achieved the standard green used today. Early gramophones and tube style radios used PCBs as far back as the 1920s, but the PCB as we know it today saw first widespread use after World War II.
