surface mounted technology (SMT)

SMT(Surface Mounted Technology) is a surface mounting technique that simplifies the assembly of printed circuit boards( PCB) from printed circuit boards and printed circuit boards.

The SMD components required for assembly are characterized by their extremely small size and are soldered directly onto the copper-clad assembly side of the PCB during assembly. They do not require any drill holes like the wired components for the through hole technology, Through Hole Technology( THT), much less space and can be mounted on thinner boards on the placement side and the solder side.

SMT boards can be assembled fully automatically. The placement rate can be up to 100,000 SMD components per hour and even higher. Since the SMD components are extremely small, labeling is done only by a code printed on the board. The SMD components are soldered to the tracks using the reflow process.
