Surface-Mount Technology (SMT) is a special method of producing electronic circuits where the components are mounted or placed directly onto the surface of Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs). Such an electronic device is called Surface-Mount Device (SMD).GT Electronic India offers a blister package facility for SMD products.
Advantages from SMD compared with through-hole technique
- Higher density of connections because routing space on inner or back-side layers is not blocked by holes
- Less holes need to be drilled
- Lower initial costs and less time for production start
- Better EMC performance
