We are pleased to provide a convenient documentation describing the details around carrier tape and reel and device orientation for MMIC devices, “Application Note 101: Carrier Tape and Reel Dimensions and Device Orientation.”
This document provides many of the necessary details for understanding the specific carrier tape and reel dimensions and device orientation conventions that we use when shipping our devices. Important to note, our tape and reel procedures exactly conform to the standards specified in the ANSI/EIA-481 standard. We leverage a standard reel size, and the carrier tape specifications depend upon the individual package sizes. Device orientation within the carrier tape cavity is also indicated as per EIA-481 specifications.
