Correct, but there exist more translations for printed circuit, which are amazingly close to what William suggested: gedruckte Schaltung or 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. Nicolas - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
