3 Reasons to opt for SMT
What exactly is surface-mounted technology (SMT)?
In state-of-the-art SMT, components are placed directly onto the printed circuit board (PCB) to create a so-called surface-mounted device (SMD).
And what is through-hole technology (THT)?
In THT, components are inserted through holes drilled into in the PCB.
We have analyzed the differences of the two technologies in detail. Here are the results in a nutshell.
