Who controls the process control block(PCB)?

Recently, I have learnt about kernel and find a question that who controls the process control block(PCB)?The kernel or the process itself? Does it differ in different platform (windows/Linux)? So far, I know PCB is controlled in hardware, but I can't get to the right answer.

OS tracks all necessary information about each process running in the system in PCB. Process Control Block is a data structure representing a process in the OS.

Process control Block PCB is specially defined in the core of the OS for each process.

What Others Are Asking

How can I connect my small PCB with sensor to the bigger PCB?

My small PCB is mounting a very sensitive fragile sensor on the top surface that has to be wire bonded to the PCB, so I am trying to design a smaller PCB that can be surface mounted to the bigger PCB. How can I get some kind of thin footprint for interconnecting the two PCB boards?

How can the amount of dielectric material affect a PCB?

I understand that the dielectric material on a PCB (i.e. FR-4) can affect the capacitance of the board. But I don’t understand why is that capacitance significant, and in what applications should the amount of dielectric material be taken into consideration?
