    semiconductor devices are made with silicon (also germanium) i.e., diodes, transistors and derivatives thereof but PCB boards are made from a base copper clad fiberglass board and there is a etching process. Check out the following link

    In other words, if you teach your cat to bark (output) and eat dog food (input) that doesn't make him a dog. It would have to chase cars, chew bones, and have puppies before I'd call it Rover ;-)
