Understanding Through-Hole Technology

At Yun Industrial Acme PCB Assembly, we offer a service called through-hole assembly, also known as “tru-hole assembly.” What is this service, and is it something you should consider for your next printed circuit board project?

The defining characteristic of through-hole assembly is that holes are drilled through the printed circuit boards, and the PCB leads are inserted through those holes and soldered onto the opposite sides. Through-hole assembly has been around since the 1950s. Though much through-hole assembly has been replaced by surface-mount technology, there are still some uses for through-hole. For example, they can be used to make interconnections between layers on SMT boards.

Not sure if through-hole printed circuit boards are the way to go with your project? Give us a call and tell us what you want to make. Our knowledgeable representatives can help you determine what type of printed circuit boards would be best suited from your project.
