Do you know Through-hole technology?

Through-hole technology introduce

Thru-hole is short for Through-hole technology.
The Through-hole technology is a mounting scheme used for electronic components.
The thru-hole use of the leads on the components that are inserted into holes drilled in the PCB.

The mounted method of through-hole technology

Different PCBA plants have differed mounted method of through-hole.
Usually Thru-hole use of automated insertion mount machines.
Also soldered to pads on the opposite side either by manual assembly.

Thru-hole V.S. SMT

We have discussed SMT of PCBA, if you want to learn more detail, please go back to reading.
Through-hole mounting can provide strong mechanical bonds.
But thru-hole must additional drilling required makes the board more expensive to produce.
That’s the reason why most startup companies don’t want to use thru-hole.
