The trend to increase the density of printed circuit boards is still ongoing. To integrate electronic components into printed circuit boards is no new topic, but until now it has not been significant for general applications. There are many reasons why this will change in the future. · The tendency to use more termination resistors because of higher frequencies. · The necessity of smaller products. · New technologies allow much smaller component value tolerances.
