Avnet Logistics programming department supports devices for all applications: Microcontrollers, Flash, FPGAs, EEPROMs, PROMs, EPROMs and PLDs. Serial and parallel pick and place handling systems ensure precision processing of all package and device types, including (T)QFP, (µ)BGA, TSOP, SON, SOIC, PLCC and DIL. Automated programming equipment can handle components from and to tubes, trays or tapes. Various manual programming stations are ideal for exotic devices that require special adapters.
Taping & Reeling
Tape & reel services encompass repacking product from trays and tubes onto reels as well as unreeling product and repacking it onto trays or tubes. These services are available as add-on to programming orders, but also as stand-alone services.
Depending on the device type, Avnet Logistics uses fully automated or manual tape equipment. Fine-pitch components are handled by pick and place systems with automated optical measurement. To ensure highest possible quality, state of the art 3D optical inspection systems are employed to measure the lead integrity and lead co-planarity. All materials and processes are in accordance with the EIA481A standard. On request, full peel-force test documentation is on-hand with every tape as well as Certificates of Compliance (CoC) for every tape material in use.
Laser Marking is the preferred method for customized marking and covers 95% of all Avnet Logistics marking orders. Laser marking is fast and flexible, applicable even for the smallest of components and offers valuable benefits:
- High throughput
- No manual handling
- Low cost
- Heat resistant
- Consistent quality
- Available also for small outline packages > 8 pins (SOP)
- No glue residues
Our equipment includes in-line systems integrated in pick and place machines as well as stand-alone laser markers. Using full-automatic tray and tube feeders, no manual handling of parts is necessary.
