Fremont, CA (PRWEB) July 5, 2006
SchmartBoard, the developer of a new technology that has significantly simplified the creation of electronic circuits for hobbyists, students and electronic engineers, has released two new boards that address tiny discrete surface mount components.
The first new board (EZ Discrete #1) supports 0201, 0603, 0805, 1206,1210, 1608, 1812, 2010, 2512, & CAES-A, B, and C. The second new board (EZ Discrete #2) supports SOT23-3, 5, 6, SC70-5,6, DPAK, D2PAK, SOT223, TO263-7, SOT89, 0805, 1206, & CASE-A, B, C, D and E. Many of these components are very small and require a magnifying glass to see, let alone hand solder without creating shorts. These new Schmartboards lock the component in place on the board, and are hand-soldered by simply touching the board with the soldering iron next to the component. Because the solder is already on the board, the job is much simpler.
Before the SchmartBoard|ez line of prototyping boards was launched in September 2005 at the DEMO fall show, it required an expert to hand solder most surface mount components. SchmartBoards technology has now made it possible for novices to hand solder some of the most difficult components quickly and flawlessly the first time they pick up a soldering iron. The SchmartBoard|ez family of boards allow engineers, students and hobbyists to hand solder surface mount components and expanded their capabilities in creating electronic circuit projects.
