Straight-Through Lead.Straight-through terminations (figure 3-6) are used by manufacturers
when the termination stability is not a prime consideration. This termination type may also be used with
unsupported holes. The through-hole termination provides a better, solder-joint contact area and more
solder support; the solder runs from the component side to the conductor. The straight-through
termination is the easiest to remove and rework.
