Unlike rigid boards, flex circuits are not restricted to two dimensions. Because they are as flexible as wires or ribbon cables, flex circuit design options are endless. At Flexible Circuit, we pride ourselves on taking on the most complex of design challenges. Flex circuits can be designed to meet highly complex and unimaginable configurations while being able to operate in the most hostile environments. Flex circuit designs could entail any of the following:
It is made up of insulating material, also known as substrate, on which conducting copper layer is laminated.
Latest PCB design and manufacturing have made the latest technology innovative and hassle free. because it allows us to get rid of hectic method of point to point wiring which was mainly used for connecting the electronic components electrically.
Whenever we define layers of PCBs, we refer to number of conductive layers.
Single sided PCB, also termed as single layer PCB, is a type of PCB which comes with only one layer of conducting material on one side of the board and other side is used for incorporating different electronic components on the board.
Single sided PCBs are the start point of printed circuit board technology and still plays an important in electronic industry.
These PCBs are usually cheaper to manufacture and are an ideal choice for low densitydesigns.
Single sided PCBs came into play in 1950s, manufactured in USA and still dominate the electronic market because of their simple design.
It was produced to give components mechanical strength and strong base with different pads and lines incorporated on it to electrically connect different components on the board.
In 1956 single sided PCBs took a big turn in terms of their progress when number of PCB professionals from Japan took part in manufacturing of single sided PCBs.
Paper phenolic aldehyde was widely used in the early stage of manufacturing process of single sided PCBs but soon it was replaced by glass fiber epoxy resign because paper phenolic aldehyde exhibited bad solder thermal stability, low electric insulation, and twist issues.
Glass fiber epoxy resign gives stability for variety of temperature variations and it doesn’tfluctuate or decompose too quickly.
Hobbyists who are highly interested in making convoluted circuit design find single sided PCBuseful as it gives them flexibility in routing and doing other things with ease like decoupling, proper ground connections and other electrical considerations.
