Embossed carrier tape provides protection to integrated circuits and other devices from physical and electro-static discharge (ESD) damage during shipping and storage. Carrier tape is widely used for presenting devices to pick-and-place machines for automatic placement onto printed circuit boards.
Advantek's carrier tape can incorporate containment features found in more expensive shipping media. This provides fragile devices—such as QFP's, chip scale packages and bare die—protection from physical abuse.
Included in our line of carrier tape is Advantek SFT™, our Sharp Form Tape for precision applications, which can be processed in a clean-room environment. Near-vertical sidewall draft angles help prevent part migration as well as abrasion caused by contact with device edges. SFT™ pocket bottoms are flat to provide horizontal device confinement and presentation to pick-and-place equipment.
New J series ( reduced burr) carrier tape
Reducing potential sources of particulates during assembly, test and transportation continues to grow in importance. 'J' series carrier tape provides notably tighter burr control for carrier tape; reducing packaging media contribution to foreign material.
