Surface Mount Technology, whereby electronic components are machine-mountable to the surface of printed circuit boards.
SMT stands for urface ount echnology. This is the term for components which are soldered to the surface of a PCB, rather than having their pins/leads pushed through holes within it.
A technique for populating hybrids, multichip modules, and circuit boards, in which packaged components are mounted directly onto the surface of the substrate. A layer of solder paste is screen printed onto the pads and the components are attached by pushing their leads into the paste. When all of the components have been attached, the solder paste is melted using either reflow soldering or vapor-phase soldering.
Silicon Microstrip Tracker. The high-precision innermost element of the DØ tracking system. This is comprised of barrel and disk assemblies of silicon wafers (and mechanical support).
Senior Management Team
Station Management. ANSI FDDI specification that defines how ring stations are managed.
Station Management Task. A protocol function for the FDDI interface card that controls and monitors overall station activity including initialization, activation, maintenance, and error control within each station.
An entity within a network station on an FDDI ring that monitors station activity and exercises control over station activity. The standard defines how to manage the Physical Layer Medium Dependent (PMD), the Physical Layer Protocol (PHY), and the Media Access Control (MAC) portions of FDDI.
