Surface Mount Technology is a method to make an electronic circuit by mounting leaded and nonleaded electrical components directly to the PCB. Today’s mass produced electronic devices are produced by using this technology. Those devices are known as SMDs (Surface Mount Devices).
SMDs are smaller in size than the devices made with its counterpart technology – Through Hole Technology as there is no-lead or very small lead of the components mounted in the SMDs.
