Through Hole And Surface Mounted Technology - What is the Difference

Posted by Matthew Turpin on Wed, Oct 01, 2014 @ 07:00 AM

Over the past several decades, surface mounted technology (SMT) has grown in popularity and has widely replaced through-hole technology. But why is SMT so preferable to through-hole mounting, and can through-hole still be relevant in certain applications? By taking a few moment's to learn about both methods, you'll gain a thorough understanding of the unique characteristics of the two, the key differences between them, and what it is that makes SMT the preferred option.

Why You Should Look To SMT For Your Next Circuit Build

Posted by Matthew Turpin on Tue, Sep 30, 2014 @ 07:00 AM

For most of the history of manufactured electronics, "through hole" printed circuit boards have been the standard.  The idea has been effectively unchanged since the 50s, although there've been improvements in size and manufacturing quality.  A through-hole circuit board needs holes drilled through it for connections and circuitry to pass through.

Who Comes Out On Top Between SMT vs. Through-Hole Mounting

Posted by Matthew Turpin on Thu, Jul 24, 2014 @ 08:05 AM

As technology continues to evolve, we must work to find ways to keep up with it. Although through-hole mounting or technology was the predominant option for developing printed circuit boards (PCBs) for decades, today's consumer demands require electronics manufacturers to embrace new technologies as a means of developing compact yet highly dense boards. The most popular solution has been surface mount technology.
