More performance from ever-smaller components

    Smartphones have become an integral part of most people's lives. They are our alarm clocks, appointment books, Internet access and a whole lot more – all in one handheld device.

    Populating circuit boards for smartphones and tablets places special demands on the SMT process in terms of accuracy and speed. This is where the latest generations of super-small components – currently 01005, with 0201 (metric) coming soon – are first used in high-volume production applications. The size of these miniaturized components as well as their density in modern smartphones require maximum precision.

    With years of experience, many customer projects under its belt and solid expertise in today's production processes, ASM meets these requirements for its placement solutions.
