What is a panel?
A panel is group of PCBs manufactured together on one board. There are panels with a single design and there are also multi-design panels. Panels can be ‘bare board’ or fully assembled. After manufacturing, the individual boards are ‘de-paneled’ for distribution.
Panels are a very efficient method of manufacturing and assembling printed circuit boards, and it is this efficiency that makes them very cost effective. The individual PCBs are separate parts that can be ordered together by ordering the panel from Bittele Electronics Inc.
