When ordering printed circuit board or PCBs, the assembly methods for these differ. Laser direct imaging is ideal for smaller boards since this means can secure dozens and dozens of layers together. Surface-mount technology is another options where multiple PCBs are adhered to one larger board. Often favored over thru-hole technology due to speed and ease of use, surface-mount technology or SMT assembly has its own pros and cons. Those that need to order PCBs to power any electronic devices should consider and weigh these pros and cons carefully when choosing a smt pcb manufacturer that offers SMT services.
