SMT PCB Assembly

What is SMT assembly? the SMT assembly stand for (Surface Mount Technology assembly), a method of soldering components directly onto a PCB. This technology minimizes PCB fabrication costs, shrink the products size, and increases efficiency.

the SMT was first developed by IBM in 1960 to build small scale computers, it didn’t take off until 1986 when surface mounted technology ( SMT ) to reaching about 10% market popularity. By 1990, surface mount device ( SMD ) could be found in majority of high tech printed circuit board ( PCB ) assembly house.

The SMD meaning surface mount device, this electronic components is leadless part that is mounted on top of PCB directly without drilling holes on PCB. The SMT assembly is the assembly technology which mount the SMD components on a circuit board.
