In SMT manufacturing, automation is the key to achieving the highest throughput at the lowest cost. Complex devices of various shapes and sizes often require final electrical adjustments under operating conditions to ensure conformance to electrical specifications. This paper describes the process of laser trimming completed SMT devices and the advantages it has over conventional trimming methods. The material presented is based on laser trimming systems currently used in SMT production applications that will also be described.
