High-Quality Single-Sided PCBs with Competitive Pricing
Introduction of Single sided PCB
At present, the printed circuit board is very significant to our life and appears in almost every aspect of our life. The printed circuit board first appeared in 1936. It was made by Mr. Eisler from Austria, and the finished product was a radio.
So far, electronic products have got rid of complicated wiring, because when there was no printed circuit board, the components were connected by complex wiring. For products with high difficulty and complexity, the disorder of wiring is a huge problem, which has been solved since the emergence of the printed circuit board.
There are many kinds of printed circuit boards. Single sided PCB should be the most simple printed circuit board, but it is widely used in consumer electronics, which has enormous demands.
Today we will introduce one of them, single-sided printed circuit board, which is most simple type of PCB boards. Please contact our sales team any time to get a free single sided PCB price.

History of Single Sided PCB
The original country of origin of the single sided PCB came from the United States, probably in the 1950s, which was also the period of the most vigorous development of the single sided PCB.
Although the country of origin was the United States, Japan had a historic innovation in production. Japan developed a paper phenolic copper foil substrate based on the initial copper foil etching and maintained sustainable development. Finally, various resin materials with stronger insulation and heat resistance, and less deformation were further developed, such as glass fiber epoxy resin, and so on.

Frequently Asked Questions
Like all other printed circuit boards, single-sided PCBs must be stocked in a temperature and humidity-controlled environment. When PCBs are assembled and installed on electronic applications, occasional maintenance like cleaning from dust or contamination may be needed; it depends on the usage environment.
The advantages of single-sided PCB including:
The design of single-sided PCBs is easy.
The manufacturing of single-sided PCBs is easy.
The cost of single-sided PCBs is low.
The turnaround of single-sided PCBs is quick.
Different circuit layers: single-sided PCBs only have one circuit layer, but double-sided PCBs have two circuit layers with vias to connect the top and bottom circuits.
Different production processes: the production process of double-sided PCBs is different from that of single-sided PCBs. PTH vias plating is needed in double-sided PCB production.
Different cost: double-sided PCBs are more expensive than Single-sided PCBs if the other parameters are the same.
Materials are different: the most commonly used materials in single-layer PCB are CEM1, CEM3, FR4, Aluminum, etc. But the most commonly used material in double layers PCB is FR4.
Applications are different: one layer PCBs are always used in consumer electronics, but two layer PCBs are commonly used in higher-end applications such as industrial control, testing, communications, power, automotive, IoT, robotics, etc.
1. Fully understand the parameters of the base material used;
2. Know the function and the usage of the PCBs and application well;
3. Always keep in mind the factors which will affect the price a lot, such as material, thickness, copper thickness, PCB dimensions, and surface finishes;
4. Understand the production capability from the PCB manufacturer;
5. Know the PCB production processes;
5. You can always get advice from PCB suppliers if you have any questions.
The following mistakes when handling a single-sided PCB will affect the function of the single-sided PCB.
The process of film application: The film is not firmly applied, resulting in the appearance of bubbles.
The exposure process: The scratched negative causes a local underexposure. The development is blurred and unclear.
The etching process: The pressure of the nozzle is too high, and the etching time is too long.
Problems related to plating: The plating is uneven. The surface has an adsorption force when plating.
Improper operation: In the production process of the single-sided PCB, the board is scratched, and the circuits are broken due to improper operation.
Production errors: Like missing drill, wrong drilling, wrong outline, etc.
Single sided printed circuit board has one copper layer as conductors, and double-sided PCBs have two copper layers with PTH vias normally.
It is widely used in consumer electronics. Power supplies, relays, sensors, LEDs, printers, TVs, coffee machines, electronic toys, etc. all use single-sided PCBs.
For a bare PCB board, we can see only one copper layer and no PTH vias. For assembled PCBs, if the components are placed on one side of the board, and the circuit is placed on the other side of the board, this kind of PCB is a single-sided PCB.
A single-sided PCB is a printed circuit board containing only one circuit layer.
The single-sided printed circuit board is the most basic starting point for printed circuit technology. It plays an important role in the industry for low-cost, high-volume production of simple circuits.
Both single layer PCB board and single sided PCB board are same, all means printed circuit boards with only one copper layer.
Single sided printed circuit boards are widely used in consumer electronics, such as LEDs, power PCB, white electronics such as TV, air conditioner, cooker, refrigerator etc.
