The difference between SMT and SMD.
 
These two little acronyms get mixed up a lot in the electronics manufacturing service world. On paper, they only vary by a single letter, but in practice, there’s a lot more separating SMTs and SMDs. Chiefly, one is a process and the other is a device.
 
An SMD, or surface mounted device, is an electronic component that you would find on a board. 
An SMT, or surface mount technology, is the method of placing components (like an SMD) on the board. In electronic manufacturing services, the SMT process often works with SMDs, perhaps adding to the confusion.
