Hello all, we recently rolled out our new SMT products and I have to write up a proposal for possible customers. Does anyone have a link or info on why SMT is superior to through hole techonolgy? Not concerning the maufacturing process but in relation to the superiority of SMT technology in the field - in actual application.
The main advantage is of course the density of the board. All the advantages for SMT over PTH are related to the decrease in component size. This is a good selling point for your customers. However, from a production stand-point, there are additional costs. But you probably already know this since you've started to build SMT.
