# How to make a PCB

And now I have a very simple circuit, but I'm wondering what is the most practical way to convert it to a PCB.

Circuit:

I want to use a small PCB board, 2x8cm like this:

I think the following is something that should work:

TOP

           A  B  C  D  E  F
o  o  o  o  o  o

V1 VCC X--o  o  o  o  o  o

o  <Res 960->  D
1
o  o CH1 SW1_  _

V1 GND X--o  o  o  o  o  o

o  o  o  o  o  o


BOTTOM

           A  B  C  D  E  F
o  o  o  o  o  o

V1 VCC X--o--o  o  o  o  o
|
REL VCC x--o  X  o  o  X  X

REL GND x--o  o  X--X  X--X
|
V1 GND  x--o  o  o  o  o  o

o  o  o  o  o  o


My questions:

• The relay has 3 pins which are spread (two on the left, CH1 in the middle), is it a good practice to keep them together (but at the cost of more soldering or not)?
• The Relay CH1 and Switch wires are in the middle of the board (part).... is this 'good practice' or better to always keep them at the side (but again at the cost of more soldering?)
• PCB = Printed Circuit Board. PCB Board= Printed Circuit Board Board. This message brought to you by the department of redundancies department. – JRE Feb 27 '18 at 13:53
