Off-shore production of printed wiring board (PWG, often written simply board in this book) by Japanese manufacturers is increasing significantly as a result of economic globalization. This book is prepared as an introductory textbook to prepare for the First and Second Level Technical Skill Tests especially for non-Japanese technicians who come to Japan for the training of the PWB technology. This book is an excerpt of the book, “Introduction to the Printed Wiring Board Technology” one of the Purintoban-Juku series of JPCA written by the author.
Technicians coming to Japan from abroad have a limited knowledge of the PWB technology in addition to the handicap of difficulty in understanding the Japanese language. The text in the Japanese edition of this book is restated using simpler Japanese words for easy understanding of the technology. The Japanese readings are added after Chinese characters used in the text (not applicable to this text in English). Some descriptions of terms are also changed for this purpose.
This book states only the very basics of the PWB technology. It is difficult to train technicians by this book alone for the entire fields of the PWB technology. This book may be used to obtain introductory knowledge of the technology for technicians who come to Japan for the first time for technical training. It is strongly encouraged to study further details of the technology using other textbooks of this series of the “Purintoban-Juku”.
