Surface-mount Device (SMD)

SMD sensors

A Surface-mount Device is an electronic component that mounts on the surface of a printed circuit board (as opposed to “through-hole” components there the leads are inserted into holes). These types of devices allow more components per square centimeter on a Printed-circuit Board.

Reed Switches and Reed Sensors are available as SMD devices, which are packed in tapes for automatic pick and place.
