Mastering Surface Mount Technology takes you on a crash course in techniques, tips and know-how to successfully introduce surface mount technology in your workflow. Even if you are on a budget you too can jumpstart your designs with advanced fine pitch parts.
Besides explaining methodology and equipment, attention is given to SMT parts technologies and soldering methods. In a step by step way, several projects introduce you to handling surface mount parts and the required skills to successfully build SMT assemblies. Many practical tips and tricks are disclosed that bring surface mount technology into everyone's reach without breaking the bank.
Book review from Dave Jones on EEVBlog:
Available at our partner Eurocircuits:
A comprehensive kit of parts comprising all SMT components, circuit boards and solder stencils is available for readers wishing to replicate the following projects described in this book:
1. LED Tester (project # 2);
2. PWM Controller for Light Bulb (project # 3);
3. Ringlight (project # 4).

Please note that you can also order the book from our partner Eurocircuits. If you want to buy the book and the kit of parts or PCBs in one shipment we advise to order your products here. In that case you only pay shipping costs once.
LabWorX is a collection of books, each handling a particular topic in the field of electronics. Each volume condenses all the information, applications and notes collected during hands-on work with the covered technology, all into one book. Besides the basics of the technology, in-depth examples and applications are given as well as troubleshooting tips on how to proceed if the initial implementation fails. The books provide a centralised repository of knowledge, each handling a particular technology. Each book may have optional circuit boards that let the reader try out the material covered. Also a website provides up-to-information and software code examples where applicable. This will make your life easier when dealing with the subject at hand. It is literally going from our lab to your brain so that you too can master the subject.
