Surface Mount Technology (SMT)
In recent years there has been a drammatic change from the use of leaded components to surface mount technology. These SMT components make the manufacturing process much easier and faster.
Transistors and diodes are in widespread use today. Many millions are used each day apart from those that are incorporated in integrated circuits.
