Types of Surface Mounting in SMT

Why Different Types of Surface Mounting Techniques in SMT?

Many electronic components are not yet available in SMD for surface mounting. Due to this reason, SMT must accommodate some through-hole electronic components. Therefore, the term “Surface Mount Assembly” is incomplete.

Types of Surface Mounting in SMT

Surface mount components, active and passive, when attached to the SMT PCB, form three major types of SMT assembly – commonly referred to as Type I, Type II and Type III. The process sequences are different in each type, and all the three types need different equipment.

Type I SMT

This type of assembly contains only surface mount components. The assembly can be either single-sided PCB or double-sided PCB.


This Type of assembly contains only discrete surface mount components (SMD Resistors, SMD capacitors, and transistors) glued to the bottom side.


This assembly is a combination of Type III and Type I. It generally does not contain any active surface mount devices on the bottom side but may contain discrete surface mount devices on the bottom side.

Complexities of SMT Assembly

The complexity of SMT assembly in electronics is increased if large fine pitch, ultra fine pitch, QFP (Quad Flat Pack), TCP (Tape Carrier Package), or BGAs (Ball Grid Arrays) and very small chip components (0603 or 0402 or smaller) are used on these assemblies along with conventional (50-mil pitch) surface mount packages.

Process of all three Types of Surface Mounting include – adhesive, solder paste, placement, soldering and cleaning followed by inspection, test and repair.
