A Single Sided PCB is the most basic type of printed circuit board. It consists of only one conductive copper layer above the substrate. The electrical components are soldered or mounted on to one side of the board and the entire etched circuit can be seen on the other side of the board.
Single Sided Printed Circuit Boards are easy to design and manufacturing. They are also the most cost-effective PCBs.
Since these boards have only one conducting layer the conductive paths cannot cross or overlap and thus tend to take up a large amount of space. Due to this such PCBs are ideal for low-density design requirements.
Key features of Single-Sided PCB
-Low manufacturing and production cost
-Suitable for Low Density Designs
-Easy to manufacturing and design
-Easy to repair in case something goes wrong
Application of Single Sided PCB
Single sided PCBs are generally used in designs of low density and easy electronics. They can be designed and manufactured easily and quickly. Though single sided printed circuit boards are easy and simple, they are used by many electronic companies in the world in several electronic devices and gadgets: LED Lights / Calculator / Many sensors / Power supply / Timers / Radio / Printers / Camera
