Surface Mount Technology Integration of device connection technology in the SMT process

device connection technology

Today’s PCB is a platform for electronic components, creating circuits whose complexity may vary from simple to highly sophisticated. Increasing requirements such as the miniaturisation of components, greater functional densities and lower production costs have resulted in the successive replacement of classic through hole technology (THT) by surface mount technology (SMT) in previous years. Today SMT is the method of choice – it has been widely adopted as the standard production technique for the surface mounting of electronic components.
