Title: CARRIER TAPE
Abstract:
A carrier tape (300) with a continuous channel (310) is proposed instead of the individual separate embossed pockets (110) prevalent in conventional carrier tapes (100). The continuous channel (310) reduces or even eliminates small bridge problem typically associated with the conventional carrier tapes (100). The proposed carrier tape (300) can include dividers (330) and cutouts (340) to accommodate the devices (205) with minimum pitch without sacrificing corner relief. A cover tape (450) can be included to seal the devices (205) below the top surface of the devices (205). Further, the floor (316) of the continuous channel (310) can be lined with an adhesive (560).
