Advantages of SMT

  • The main advantage for SMT is to allow automated production and soldering. This is cost and time saving and also allows for a far more consistent circuit. The savings in manufacturing costs are often passed along to the customer – making it beneficial for everyone.

  • Less holes need to be drilled on circuit boards

  • Costs are lower than through-hole equivalent parts

  • Either side of a circuit board can have components placed on it

  • SMT components are far smaller

  • Higher component density

  • Better performance under shake and vibration conditions.
