SMTA Publishes Handbook of Electronic Assembly

Apr 17, 2014

The Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA) announced the publication of a new book titled “Handbook of Electronic Assembly and A Guide to SMTA Certification.” Originally conceived as a supplement to the SMTA Certification Program, the book provides an in-depth understanding of the entire electronic assembly process with a special focus on helping those new to the industry develop competence in the technology.

Chapter topics include soldering and materials, printed wiring boards, components, paste-print stencil, component placement, assembly line design and optimization, solder reflow, wave soldering, dispensing, and inspection and test. Each chapter outlines the fundamental attributes of critical assembly processes providing full-color images and diagrams to illustrate real-world applications.

Professor Ronald Lasky, Ph.D., Dartmouth College/Indium Corporation; W. James Hall, ITM Consulting; Katherine Hickey and Jennifer Tate, Ph.D., Dartmouth College, wrote and organized the book over a span of several years. Fred Dimock, BTU, and Ed Briggs, Indium Corporation, are credited for their contributions to specific chapters. Publication through the SMTA allows this work to reach the largest audience at the lowest price.

The handbook is available in full-color print format through the SMTA BookStore. SMTA members receive a $10 discount on all titles. There is no charge for shipping if sent to an address in the US. http://www.smta.org/store/book_detail.cfm?book_id=436
