A carrier for semiconductor components, and a method and system for handling semiconductor components using the carrier, are provided. The carrier includes a frame having component mounting sites that include adhesive members for retaining the components on the carrier. The adhesive members can include one or more pieces of polymer tape having low tack adhesive surfaces for retaining the components, and high tack adhesive surfaces for bonding to the carrier. The low tack adhesive surfaces are formulated to provide adhesive forces sufficient to retain the components on the component mounting sites, but low enough to allow a conventional pick and place vacuum tool to remove the components from the carrier. The adhesive forces on the components are determined by a contact area between the components and low tack adhesive surfaces, and by adhesive qualities of the low tack adhesive surfaces.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
