    1. Dude, its on PCB, thats the point. And not all printed circuits have to be closed, some are just to ground stuff or connect to something.

        1. It’s a pun dude. Circuit tree – circuitry. Artsy and cute, not designed for a function. Doesn’t matter if it’s not a circuit, the word play stands because it’s on circuit board, which is fun, imho.

      1. Good call!  You are correct, I don’t have a girlfriend – my wife and four kids keep me too busy to socialize (next time, check the link to the name – you might save yourself some embarassment).

  1. nice. just try to compute the RF/bandwidth/radiation-pattern/efficiency of any of those used as an (RFID/bluetooth) antenna.

    1. looks like it would be very broad band, maybe a pattern like a dipole if feed from the middle, although it would probably need a bit of tweaking. it would be cool to design an antenna for say a wi-fi antenna to set on a desktop that maybe looked like a tree, but plugged into a laptop to give a better connection.

  2. Circuit Tree. It’s a pun. Has nobody else noticed that? It doesn’t matter what the title implies – it’s a gag. A circuit board in the lovely pattern of a tree. A circuitry. x
