This training course is aimed at providing an understanding of Surface Mount Technology (SMT) and advanced packaging principles, practice, processes, equipment, and design. This course will also include discussions on process parameters, process characteristics, identifying and correcting defects. Participants will have a strong foundation needed for implementing the SMT process and supporting printed circuit board design and assembly from this course. The knowledge gained from this training will help attendees enhance product development and manufacturing skills. The course material is a subset of a week long course offered for professional development at RIT.
