dedicated pcb?? Answered

yes i was wondering if its possible to dedicate certain circuit components to one pcb? like say one pcb has only amplifiers on it?

No, the point of the PCB is to connect the components that work together. it is in effect the wires between components. If you only making a one off then a PCB may not be worth while, but if your making 1000's then they are easily mass produced.

okay so your saying it would be pointless to attemp that? because each one needs all the components i am intending on using? because i wanna try and make a super high responce robotic "brain" of sorts

YES, it's done all the time. Even in this age of massively compacted electronics, eletrcial and electronic functions are often separated onto isolated pcbs.

If it's done, there really should be a need for doing so beyond the neato factor, and on the off-chance possibility the question meant "put all the semi conductors on one board and all the support components on another"... emphatically NO).

In the real world, sometimes room is limited in a way that circuits are sandwiched, or stacked, and sometimes they're housed in separate enclosures ... even today. The power supply in your desktop has one of those. Sometimes it's done for sensitive circuits, to isolate them from others, or visa versa, to separate a noisy circuits from others.

Someone designs pcb circuits, right...maybe you... Radio Shack has a kit for making simple PCBs and might be a way to learn, or at least get a foot into the game More sophisticated methods employ design tools and printed circuit board production houses, some that produce one-offs, once your pcb design skills get up to snuff. lots to read oon the net about it too.... I don't see your age, so if you're younger be responsible and ask for parental guidance before doing so. Either way... The etching solution can ruin your cloths and produce chemical burns if not handled carefully.

I don't understand your question as this just the way things are done, so unless you have no clue about the topic a few more details would help to answer this in a better way.

i really dont know much about it...but ok i was just wondering if say you put just amplifiers on one circuit board and say just other components oon another. would they work as on if connected buy wire? i hope this makes better sense :/

Check high end auido equippment as an example.
Here your signal goes into spectrum analyser, from there to a pre-amp and then finally to the full power amp.
All are just connected by wires....
