Abstract : An investigation was made on the use of Printed Circuit Conductors from the point of view of the 'Fast' electronic circuits used in the laboratory. Prototype instruments were built and compared with the equivalent conventional instruments. In many laboratories a situation exists in which there is a need to produce specialized electronic instrumentation in quantities which, although not negligible, do not warrant the time and effort of mass production. This quantity will fall between two and thirty units. It often happens that these specialized instruments are only needed for a particular experiment, or it may happen that these instruments are destroyed in the course of the experimentation. In either case a grievous burden is placed upon the laboratory in time, material, personnel and financial resources. The high cost of such specialized electronic equipment therefore makes fruitful the investigation of any method which will reduce this burden.
