Spanish translation:circuitos impresos
Explanation:
This page tells you what mask work is and the second page cited in the references describes "circuitos impresos" in detail.

MASK WORKS
The Semiconductor Chip Protection Act of 1984 (the "Act") allows mask works fixed in semiconductor chip products to be federally protected. Companies designing semiconductor chips or hiring others to design chips for them may be able to protect the designs under the Act.

Mask Work Defined

Integrated circuits, or "semiconductor chips," are typically fabricated by depositing two or more layers of metallic, insulating, or semiconductor material on a semiconductor substrate. The deposited material is laid out in a predetermined pattern so that the spatial layout or "topology" of the layers of material performs electronic circuitry functions.

A "mask work" is a series of related images or "masks" of the predetermined three-dimensional pattern of material present or removed from the layers of a semiconductor chip. Each mask represents a layout of material deposited or removed from the chip during one step of a multi-step process required to manufacture the chip. From the series of masks, one can generally determine the layout of the semiconductor chip and also the steps required to produce that chip.
