Zentroid's SMD Naming Convention

As SMD devices become smaller with more complex designs the testing thereof also becomes more challenging. Many AOI equipment suppliers if not already doing "3D" testing are scrambling in 2012 to catch up to the industry trend. A usable and definitive SMD Naming Convention has long been an important part of an efficient process in your business and with current developments, even more so.

Zentroid's SMD Naming Convention has been created to accurately describe SMD packages in a concise usable format. The original names paralleled the traditional names given to SMD packages. I have developed "New Zen" names for many packages using a systematic, more semantically correct, basis.

The Zentroid SMD Naming Convention will remain here on this website easy to find and easy to use.
