A soldering paper at SMTAI 2016 on void reduction in bottom-terminated components.
The SMTA (Surface Mount Technology Association) was started in 1984 as a non-profit organization to foster education in the then new field of surface mount electronic assembly. Since then it has expanded to include all of electronic assembly. For many it is a favorite industry organization, as it is very collegial and feels almost like a family. SMTA has also stayed true to its educational mission. SMTAI is their international conference and exhibition. It is the one conference I always try to attend.
