What are the Advantages of Surface Mount Technology in PCBA?

Surface mount technology (SMT) is an alternative to older through-hole (TH) printed circuit board (PCB) design and manufacturing. Even when there are reasons to use through-hole components on your PCB, surface mounted components almost always win. In fact, almost all equipment manufactured commercially uses surface mounted technology. Let’s learn more about how surface mount components compare to through-hole components and the reasons to use surface mount technology during PCB manufacturing. What...

Working with your Contract Manufacturer for Best BOM Practices

Quality manufacturing and PCB assembly depend on an accurate bill of materials (BOM). While design and product iterations evolve, your team must ensure that every change and impact assessment includes updates to your manufacturing BOM. Selecting parts from a pool of “suitable” devices isn’t the only reason to maintain your BOM, as inaccuracies could lead to devastating downstream effects. A BOM is more than just a list of approved components and materials. It’s a complete hierarchy and a centralized...

Printed Circuit Boards Make Today’s Medical Devices Possible

As technology provides greater convenience to consumers, it is also transforming how we access health and medical services. Advances in capabilities will continue to grow the market for medical devices, with analysts expecting it to reach $432.6 billion globally by 2025. One key component that supports this growth is printed circuit boards (PCBs). Modern medicine depends on these electronics to automatically perform any number of functions. A PCB can use wireless networking to monitor, store,...
