Surface Mount Technology: Principles and Practice
This standard work of reference, now in its second edition, continues to focus on educating electronic engineers in surface mount principles, mainstream industry practices, and technology options.
Surface mount technology (SMT) is not a technology of tomorrow but a technology of today which makes it possible to produce state-of-the-art miniaturized electronic products. Although SMT is a mature technology, it is also constantly evolving. This is evidenced by the increasing popularity of relatively newer packages, such as fine pitch, ball grid array (BGA), and chip scale packaging (CSP).
