Electronic Circuit board has become smaller by the use of semiconductors and communication device is portable now. Even the medium of communication has gone lot of changes. Cooper based wires have gained acceptance widely as the major mode. Lately another medium has gained quite an importance due to its advantages over cooper based wire. It is called fiber Optics.
