This is the first glossary of terms dedicated to surface-mount technology. One of the key issues here is price sensitivity. Many other textbooks have a glossary included, but not as illustrated or as detailed as this one. The book also features a section covering standard abbreviations; those things we all use, but often forget to explain. This handbook is ideal for students, as a reference source for journalists and technical writers, or for people who are looking to understand some of the more common terminology used in our industry. If you don't have a basic guide to terms and definitions used in the industry, this is certainly useful.

This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
