Correct, but there exist more translations for printed circuit, which
are amazingly close to what William suggested:

gedruckte Schaltung
gedruckter Schaltkreis

the latter looks a little bit strange, but at least Schaltkreis alone is
a popular term. The first one is often used.

Platine is also a correct term, but it also refers to the raw material,
without any circuits etched into it.

But I still don't see how DK or MDK would match to any German words.
