SchmartBoard Releases Family for SMT Connectors

ELECTRONICS: SchmartBoard announced a family of boards for prototyping with SMT (Surface Mount Technology) connectors.

These boards support SMT connectors from companies such as Hirose, Molex, Samtec and Tyco and pitches of .4mm, .5mm, 8mm, 1.0mm and 1.27mm. They also use our patented SchmartBoard|ez technology which is our solution for hand soldering surface-mount components. After some extensive R&D we learned that two skills are needed to hand-solder surface mount components. First, the ability to place the components on the solder pads and keep them in place to solder. Second is the ability to solder such small areas without creating short circuits on the chip legs. SchmartBoard|ez resolves both issues so that virtually anyone can now use surface mount components.

The suggested retail for the boards is $9.99 each or 10 packs for $80.00.
