Surface Mount Technology (SMT)
Surface Mount Technology (SMT) Services
Surface mounting has several advantages over similar PCB manufacturing techniques. Perhaps most importantly, it allows for much smaller products — up to one-third the size and one-tenth the weight of thru-hole boards — and higher connection densities. Surface mount boards are also faster and easier to assemble and more cost-effective than through-hole technology.
For these reasons and more, SMT is an excellent choice for most applications.
