Surface Mount Technology Lab
Students gain experience identifying, soldering and using surface mount devices by physically building an actual working surface mount technology project. This course is the perfect introduction to SMT and does not require any previous knowledge of the topic.
Learn about surface mount technology (SMT) such as:
- Different Types of Surface Mount Devices (SMDs)
- Various Types of Surface Mount Assemblies
- Automated Soldering Methods
- The Stages of Manual and Automated Assembly
- Processes of Surface Mount Circuits
Comes with a detailed instruction manual, identification parts (both SMD and Standard) and a magnifier with tweezers.
Soldering and Surface Mount Technology are associated with the assembly of Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) and the interconnection of electronic components and other devices onto the printed board.
Soldering is extremely important in the assembly process in many manufacturing industries.
