Electronic Devices Need Surface Mount PCB Assembly: Know the Reasons

8/11/2015
Surface mount printed circuit board assemblies (PCBs) are the heart of Surface Mount Technology (SMT).

Surface mount printed circuit board assemblies (PCBs) are the heart of Surface Mount Technology (SMT). Different from conventional soldering processes, surface mounting via PCBs allows soldering and mounting electronic components using new techniques, principles, and equipment. More complex than thru-hole technology, surface mounting on printed circuit boards offer greater reliability and better electrical conductivity for electronic assemblies.

Widely used in electronics, this comparatively modern soldering technology makes use of surface mount electronic components or surface mount devices (SMD), these components are attached to printed circuit boards through soldering paste in place of a solder par or solder wire used in the thru-hole process. This requires specialized surface mount soldering equipment for precision, although hand soldering may also be used on occasion.

Surface mount PCB assemblies offer a wide range of benefits when it comes to design and manufacturing of different electronic devices. Some design-related benefits include electrical noise reduction and savings in weight and real estate. Surface mount technology allows for enhanced vibration and shock resistance resulting from the use of lower mass components. In production and manufacturing, SMT and PCB assemblies help reduce board cost as well as the cost of material handling. This technology also helps maintain control in the manufacturing process.

Because surface mount PCB assemblies require specialized equipment and technology, it is critical that you find a company that is adequately equipped with all the modern facilities to ensure quality production and expert implementation of your design. Choose an experienced company with established credentials in electronic contract manufacturing and extensive experience in handling modern SMDs, ranging from 01005 chip sizes to Micro BGAs and QFNs.

While surface mount PCB assemblies are the reigning standard in most modern devices, the advantages of thru-hole technology can't be denied, especially when dealing with old electronic assemblies. Find a company that offers expertise in thru-hole, surface mount, and mixed technology assemblies to ensure a holistic approach to your projects. Only the best electronic design and circuit board assembly companies use the latest automatic thru-hole axial and radial machines, capable of meeting high-volume requirements. Choose firms that employ IPC-certified manufacturing personnel who are skilled in operating these advanced machines and manually assembling additional parts that cannot be machine-placed. The most progressive companies are those who are always looking for new challenges and are not afraid to take on complicated PCB assemblies. If you have electronic designs that required surface mount assemblies, choose PCB manufacturers with the right certifications and excellent quality management systems to ensure the value of your investment.
