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 damage.
Surftape is a unique form of punched carrier tape where the component is placed on a sticky backing within a compartment boundary. The adhesive base securely holds devices in the position they are placed until it is removed, eliminating the need for cover tape.
Cover tape is sealed to the carrier tape to hold the devices in the pockets. Advantek offers a full range of cover tapes to meet various requirements.
To prevent mechanical & ESD damage to devices during shipping and storage, loaded carrier tape is typically wound onto a plastic take-up reel.
