For Single-sided PCB, the leaded/smt components are on one side or other side (as per customer requirement) , conducting wires are on the opposite side of the components embedded. Single sided PCB is the most simple and basic PCB board. The raw material for manufacturing single sided PCB includes FR1, CEM1, CEM3 and FR4. Single Sided PCBs contain only one layer of conductive material and are best suited for low density designs. Single sided PCB’S still dominate the world market in vertical piece volume. Single-sided printed circuit boards are easily designed and quickly manufactured. They serve as the most cost effective platform in the industry. Basically, to produce single sided PCB, the main focus for PCB manufacturer is how to control production cost and save more cost for customers.

Benefits of Single Sided PCBs

Ideal for simple low-density designs.

Lower cost, especially for high volume orders.

Lower probability of manufacturing issues.

Popular, common, and easily understood by most PCB manufacturers.
