Surface-Mount Technology

Surface-mount technology (SMT) is an assembly process that involves mounting electronic components to the surface of a PCB. It is highly automated and flexible, and it allows for higher connection densities. It enables manufacturers to place complex circuitries into small components.

The four basic steps of PCBA SMT are:

1. Preparing the PCB: First, the assembler places solder paste where it is needed on board.

2. Placing the components: Next, the assembler places the components on the board, typically using a pick-and-place machine.

3. Reflow soldering: The assembler then heats the boards in a reflow oven until the solder paste reaches the temperature required for the solder joints to form.

4. Inspection: The assembler conducts inspections throughout the SMT process, including before attaching the components and before and after reflow soldering.

Thru-Hole Technology

Thru-hole technology is an assembly process that involves drilling holes into a PCB through which electronic components called leads can be attached. It is an older technology than SMT but creates a stronger connection between the board and the components, which makes for more durable and reliable assemblies.

Thru-hole assembly can be either fully automated or semi-automated. The steps of the PCBA thru-hole process include:

1. Drilling the holes: The first step in the thru-hole process involves drilling holes into the board. These holes must be the right size for the component leads.

2. Placing the leads: Next, the assembler places the leads in the holes.

3. Soldering: The next step in the process is soldering. This step ensures the components are held firmly in place.

4. Inspection: Throughout the process, the assembly undergoes inspections to ensure the PCBA will function as expected.

FAQ for

You can get your prototyping projects for concept prototypes, functional prototypes, and even small-medium production runs done with Frigate.

  • While PCB, PCA and PCBA are used interchangeably in the industry, here's what they really mean: PCB: Printed Circuit Board. It's the “naked” board without the electronic components. PCBA: Printed Circuit board Assembly. It's the same thing as a PCA — a Board with All the Components included.
  • A motherboard is a printed circuit assembly (PCA) used exclusively in laptop or desktop computers. While some may refer to a PCA as a motherboard, only those found in computers are motherboards. All other printed circuit assemblies are simply PCA or PCBA.
  • PCBs are typically made of multiple layers, including RF4 material substrate (such as fiberglass) for insulation, and copper to conduct electric current. Creating a PCB is a multi-step process that includes: 1. Designing the PCB: advanced software is used to determine the size, dimensions and number of layers needed for the PCB. 2. Printing the PCB design: a specialized printer called a plotter printer is used to print the design, which is made up of multiple layers for the conductive and non-conductive areas. The print becomes the foundation of the substrate, which holds the components of the structure includes copper on both sides of the layer. 3. Printing the copper for the interior layers: the design of the PCB is printed to a laminate that includes a film designed to react with ultraviolet light to properly align the board and the layout of the electrical components. 4. Getting rid of the extra copper: because the design has been cooked and processed with ultraviolet lights, certain areas are hardened and the copper is bonded to the board. The next step is to use a chemical solution to remove the unnecessary copper from the board. 5. Inspection and layer alignment: once the extra copper is removed, the design must be scrutinized to ensure all the layer and drill holes align properly. A machine drills a pin through the layers to keep them aligned. Then another machine tests the board for errors. 6. Laminating the PCB layers: once the board passes inspection, an epoxy resin layer is applied to laminate the board. Another layer of substrate is applied, then layers of substrate resin and copper foil are applied and pressed together. 7. Drilling holes: a computer-guided drill is used to drill holes through the substrate and inner panels at the appropriate places for the design. Once drilling is completed, any copper left over is removed. 8. PCB plating: an additional copper layer is added to the board, followed by a thin tin guard to protect the outer layer of copper from being etched off. From there, the PCB receives a solder mask, silkscreen with critical information and placed with a solderable finish.
