I used to work with Chris. (neither of us are there anymore). What is he talking about is putting components into "pockets". The parts would come in, in sticks (tubes) but we wanted them in reels. At first we sent them out to be reeled, but that w

Greetings, Does anyone know where to find a tape and reel flatness specification? Looking at the EIA 481-B standard, there is no reference to the tape flatness (the images shown may "imply" flatness from one side of the tape to the other, However I

Hi folks, thanks for all the tips. We have run our first batch of these flexi boards now. I had the PCB suppliers make me some 1.6mm FR4 carriers to lay the boards on to carry them through the process. (1 flat & 1 with cutouts for the second side)

Hi, A little off subject but I just finished a quick little experiment where I placed 0201 to 1206 and some ceramic resonators at specific distances off the scored edge. The distances from scored edge ranged from 0.025" on up at 0.025" increments.

Our ICT Guy here at my company loves to use lots of via holes as test points - via holes which are 0.040" diameter, and spaced at 0.004" edge to edge spacing! He doesn't like to tent the via's either, so I always battle via-to-via shorts at the wave
