Printed circuit boards are widely used in computers and electronic equipment. Although various materials may be used for printed circuit boards, the most common type is copper clad epoxy fiber glass, which is investigated in this study. These boards may be supported in different ways and the type of support plays an important role in the response of the boards to vibration and shock. In this work a particular board is studied under various boundary conditions. After modeling the joints, the copper clad epoxy fiber glass board is analyzed using finite element analysis and confirmed by experimental modal analysis.
