With the ever increasing desire among electronic manufacturers to increasee production an decrease cost, designing for automation is becoming an industry standard procedure. PWB designers now consider the tenth-grid system common place. Computer-Aided-Design-and Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) is in the forefront of all design considerations. Automated PWB assembly is a standard consideration in component layout and selection. In such a rapidly changing industry, it is the designers obligation to familiarize himself with the techniques, limitations, restrictions, and advantages of automated assembly.
